Lovely apartment in a stunning location

5 of 5
We spent a wonderful week at this lovely apartment in Mariapfarr in April. The views across the valley were beautiful - it was wonderful to be able to wake up to see the picturesque views of the surrounding mountains. We were particularly spoilt when we unexpectedly woke up to 5 inches of snow on our last day there, having had a week full of sunshine! The apartment is very well appointed and had everything that we needed during our stay. Not sure if it was the great Austrian air or the comfortable beds in the apartment, but we both slept very well! The restaurant downstairs was very handy - especially as a lot of the restaurants in Mariapfarr were closed for the break between the ski and summer seasons. Hana and Albert were very accommodating and were happy to cook lovely Austrian dishes for us even though the restaurant was actually closed. We had some lovely walks around the Lungau - hiking and walking routes were well signposted, and there were lots of maps for both cycling and walking available in the apartment. Hopefully we'll be back to see the area during the ski season soon!!
