Handy to all the local sights - Salzburg, Mt Spielberg, Mondsee Lake & Berchtesgadener Land. Our kids loved the horses and swam in both lakes though the waterfall lake is very chilly! Alex was a fantastic and attentive host and we would recommend her and her house to anyone visiting this part of the world.

The villa was very charmingly decorated with many original features throughout. The villa was very well equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The kitchen and laundry room were well stocked with essential items which made us feel at home. There were many thoughtful items throughout the villa which added to our enjoyment on our holiday. The garden was lovely with many places to sit and relax in the sunshine. Our children enjoyed cooling off in the pool. The owner popped in to see us several times and was only to happy to offer suggestions for places to visit and recommend places to eat. There were lots of lovely restaurants in the local village which was only a short walk across the river. We enjoyed walking along the river bank and up to the castle in Berrhaussen. We managed to spend some time visiting Munich and Salzburg. Both are easy to reach by car in about one hour 30 minutes. We enjoyed wandering around both cities and exploring the heritage and culture. We also visited Vienna by train which is another interesting city. We very much enjoyed our trip and I would be happy to recommend this villa to any
