The sauna proved very popular among the keep fit fanatics. Lunches on the balcony with just the sound of the stream were idyllic. Bedrooms and beds simple but clean and comfortable. The washing machine and dryer were a boon, as was the dishwasher and well equipped kitchen. Easy trip to the shops and restaurants in Murau, with the local small supermarket and bakery for a top up. A short walk to the swimming lake and to the local hotels for a drink or meal in the evening. Great walking right from the chalet to a fairly high altitude on well made, well marked paths. Easy driving distance to some great days out, we went to Ljubljana for the day, lovely city. Local attractions were the Gunster Wasserfall which has a charming little petting zoo by it. The younger more adventurous members of the party enjoyed the Nocky Flitzer at Turracher Hohe, which also has a wonderful lakeside walk. The whole area has stunning scenery at every turn filled with pretty chalets all decorated with flowers. Our fourth trip, which wont be our last.
