We were not disappointed. The house was spacious and modern with everything we could possible need for our stay. Every window in the house had a great view, sunrises, sunsets and mountains. The mountainside location of the local town had friendly restaurants and bars. The town had an outdoor swimming pool that was perfect for our teenage daughters to swim, relax and sunbathe. Hopefully we will be able to return during the winter season to this beautiful house and town. Thank you Boris.

The property was ideal for us with views over the river Mur and the narrow gauge railway. The property was comfortable and well maintained and the local manager called by to check that was all was well ( which it was). It might be helpful in the description to make it clear that access to the 2nd bedroom is through the first one- not a problem for us but might be relevant to some people. There is a fridge but no freezer- again not a problem so long as you are aware of it. Very good value for the holiday and handily placed for local sightseeing. We filled everyday without problems and there was lots of information on things to do in the property. Would recommend

Was recently partly renovated.the living room and the two bedrooms are confortable a nicly decorated.The location is great near many small villages. There is a lot to experiance in the near area. The hosts Seffi and Denice are very attentive and helping in any way.
