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.

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!
