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.

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.

Great apartment with stunning view.

5 of 5
The apartment was spacious and spotlessly clean. It was well equipped and the 6 ft bed was very comfortable. The owners spoke very little English, but with a little help from Google Translate, we got on fine! They were really friendly and helpful. The spectacular view from the balcony definitely makes this an excellent place to stay. The Zillertal Valley is also a great place for a holiday, with beautiful scenery, hikes and various other activities, including a swimming pool at the top of the Ahornbahn cableway! I would definitely recommend this apartment.

Wonderful Stay

5 of 5
We are just back from spending two weeks in the lovely village of Tulfes. The apartment was extremely well equipped and spotlessly clean. Everything you could possibly need has been thought of. Leo the owner was extremely helpful from the minute we arrived and was always on hand if required, but equally respected our privacy. The garden is lovely and enjoys a sunny aspect and includes a dining area and sunny patio for the guests to use. The location of Tulfes is ideal for visiting Innsbruck and the Glunzenger chair lifts are within a 10 minute walk from the house. We enjoyed visiting Wolfsklamm gorge, Achensee, Schloss Ambros and the stubaitol alps which are all within a short distance. We also did some lovely walks within the area with stunning scenery. Would certainly recommend .
