The house is absolutely lovely and the view from the garden is stunning - perfect setting for a BBQ, which we did most nights. Too good to go out somewhere else. Really nice decor inside and there's everything you need. There were 5 of us and felt like we had loads of space. It's a little bit of a hike up the hill to the house, but there's a nice hotel a couple of minutes walk away. Plenty of car parking space too. Millstatt is lovely for a vacation - serene, stunning, quiet even when it's busy. Great cycling around the lake and plenty of cafes, bars & restaurants to choose from. I really can't rate the house any higher. We'd definitely go back if we return to Austria and Sandra & her family gave us a lovely welcome & were contactable if we had any questions. Perfect place to stay! :)
