Make a holiday rental in Lake Achensee, Austria your home away from home

Lake Achensee self-catering holiday accommodation is set in around an upland lake in Austria’s Tyrol region. It’s the largest body of water in the region, and a fantastic year-round destination, offering a wide variety of activities both in summer and winter, all in front of a truly breathtaking backdrop of towering Alpine peaks.

Things to do in Lake Achensee, Austria

Lake Achensee holiday rentals would serve as the perfect adventure getaway in the summer months, with a host of outdoor experiences on offer, as energetic or laid-back as you want. On your doorstep will be more than 450 kilometres of marked hiking trails, from taxing mountainside climbs to gentle woodland trails. Complementing this are some 250 kilometres of cycling trails, with rentals available and special biking tours organised locally. There are also a number of designated climbing areas, and for those on the hunt for some real adventure Achensee serves as a hotspot for paragliding. Another great way to enjoy the scenery would be to take a horseback ride, courtesy of the stables at Achensee. If golf is your game then you’ll be able to make the most of two high quality courses next to the lake, nestled in a truly stunning landscape. Alternatively you could time your holiday to Achensee self-catering chalets for the winter months, when there’s just as much on offer for the whole family. Particularly impressive at this time of year is the extensive network of cross-country trails, totalling more than 200 kilometres. Close at hand will also be five distinct ski areas, affording almost 60 kilmetres of well-maintained pistes. It’s the ideal place for a family ski holiday thanks to the abundance of ski schools – there are seven in total here.

I would highly recommend the apartment. It is spotlessly clean , warm and the host CHristine is very accommodating. Every morning she would leave a buffet breakfast outside our door consisting of fresh bread, eggs, cheese,hams, milk, yogurt, etc. So nice to wake up and bring the breakfast into the apartment and then get all the ski gear on. There is a boot/ski room in the basement to leave all the ski gear. The apartment is about 1km from the ski lift. There is a free ski bus that goes past the apartment but we found it easier to put the ski,s in the estate car and drive down as plenty free parking by the gondola. There is also ski storage in Auffach. Ski ing in Auffach is very reasonable and great value for food and drink in the many ski huts on the slopes . The village is very low key and most restaurants empty by 9pm. Suited us as we were happy to cook a meal in apartment in evening after a long day ski ing . The ski Jewel pass is great as you can ski in neighbouring village alpbach although we preferred the slopes at Auffach. We flew to MUnich and it is an easy journey to Auffach. Just under 2hours . I am sure a summer holiday here would be just as fun ! Thank you Christine for making us feel so welcome on your lovely farm The Foreman family

It was tastefully decorated and extremely well equipped with everything we needed and more. The garden was also lovely and very well kept, a nice place to relax. It's just a 10 minute drive from Innsbruck but situated in beautiful countryside with great views. There are numerous places nearby to eat. Leo & Brigitte were very accommodating hosts and made us feel very welcome.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      On arrival to this apartment you know you have arrived somewhere very special. With plenty of space, each room is well designed and the finish is of the very highest standard. Spotlessly clean with everything you need to make your stay very comfortable. The style is modern with an traditional Austrian twist. The location is ideal for either a winter or summer holiday. This fantastic apartment is perfectly positioned in Oberau being only a few minutes from Auffach and an easy drive to Hopftgarten. Whilst the village has a good range of shops, restaurants and bars with a traditional Austrian feel and very friendly. You have the choice of staying and cooking or I would definitely recommend the traditional restaurants serving really good Austrian fayre, The Siedler family were very welcoming and provided all the information I needed to make the most of my weeks skiing. This is a jewel and I would recommend this place to anyone looking for quality, style, good skiing and real value for money.
