We had a fabulous winter week in Upper Austria, staying at Forsthaus Gut Traunfried. The accommodation was perfect for us, comfortable and spacious, in a peaceful woodland location, a short distance from the lake and Schloss Klaus. The hosts speak English very well, and were quick to respond to our queries upon booking. They were welcoming and flexible, making it a very easy arrival. The location was great for our family skiing at Hinterstoder, which was about 15 minutes drive away. The house also had plenty of useful leaflets on places to visit in the region, and even in winter there are activities organised by the neighbouring national park Kalkalpen, including wild deer viewing, and snowshoe treks - booking is required. The monastery at Schlierbach (about 15 mins drive) was a great find, with a very baroque church, and a cafe with superb views across the valley. Altogether a wonderful winter holiday.
We enjoyed a wonderful week here in the middle of our holiday in Austria and it was really the highlight. Very conveniently located in proximity to a number of villages with great places to eat and enjoy the lake and mountains. Despite the ease of access, the house is very quietly situated and cool in the hot summer when we stayed. The attention to detail is great and you always feel very well cared for if any questions arise. Unlike many homes where one is constantly needing little purchase items to enjoy ones stay (e.g. charcoal for the BBQ, serviettes or paper plates) everything is there and ready to be used. A luxury! A lovely Sauna caps the experience.
