View from terrace over lake was fabulous. Curtains in bedrooms are not v thick so if you're a light sleeper bring an eye mask.

We could ask nothing more for a really easygoing and relaxing summer holiday. Franz was very friendly and accommodating, and he had thought of literally everything to make the guests’ stay perfect. The bed was one of the most comfortable ones I have ever slept in. The view from the balcony to the lake was stunning. Wifi was really fast and the kitchen had everything to prepare proper meals. The cabin was really tidy. The location could not be better: you have your own peace, yet you are quite close to shops and restaurants and you can start hiking straight from the cabin. If you are looking for a stay in Zell am See area, look no further and book this cabin. Kiitos vielä, Franz! :)

We had a pool we could use anytime and although we didn't use it there was a lovely sauna in the basement of the chalet. We would recommend this holiday for anyone looking for a quiet break or for those wishing to visit cities and return to the peace of the valley. There are mountain walks from the doorstep and streams in the valley. Perfect holiday.
