They have well equipped the house with everything that you might need in a home stay. We stayed for 4 nights and I was able to wash, dry and iron (there is a washing machine and a full dryer) clothes for the next leg of our trip. The kitchen is well equipped with all cutlery and required machinery. The bedrooms are big and airy and our little kids ran and played all around the house and the little garden in the backyard. The house is perfect. The only issue was the location. There is no railway station or bus station nearby to get to the centre and the nearest station is a 30 min walk away. There is another station that is 10 min away, which we took to get to Lake Chiemsee but that doesn't go to the centre. We ultimately hired a car for the rest of the trip. I would highly recommend this perfect house if you are driving and have your own vehicle.

Visiting with our children, we loved the house. It's really well equipped for a great outdoor holiday. We loved walking in the hills around the house. The location is excellent for accessing Salzburg and the surrounding region and we were able to do lots of day trips. The booking process was smooth and everything was better than we had expected. A great place for a holiday in the hills. We will definitely be back!
