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.

Great apartment, great location

5 of 5
Fab apartment - spotlessly clean, well equipped, good size and lovely hosts. The location is perfect, esp for kids. The private garden has its own slide - much to the delight of our 3 yr old. You also have access to the facilities at the neighbouring hotel/hostel - sand pit, trampoline, climbing wall. About 5 mins away is the lake and also a wonderful playground with great fountains/water play area, again much loved by our little one. 10 min walk to ferry. Great location, Achenkirch is a nice, smaller place to stay on the lake and very pretty. Shop is about 5 mins drive and bars/restaurants next door. My only comment is that apartment isn't very private - it didn't bother us but don't expect something secluded. We had a great time and will hopefully return!

Excellent chalet, location and hosts

5 of 5
Our family of 6 spent a wonderful week at this beautiful chalet. The chalet is extremely luxurious and very well equipped. A real highlight was the superb spa area, which we enjoyed every day. The location was fantastic as everything we needed was in walking distance. We walked, swam, cycled and enjoyed a boat trip around stunning Lake Achensee. A trip up the local cable car and hike to the 'bird's nest' viewing point was another memorable experience. Nina, and her daughter Nicole, were the perfect hosts who made us feel very welcome throughout our stay. We would love to come back!
