Bowl of fruit and Prosecco in the fridge is a nice touch, plus the personal welcome from the owners. Local Spar about 9km away which stocked pretty much everything we needed. We went up the Donnaberg cable car when it was open on a beautifully sunny day, and walked back down the mountain home. Has a hilarious Thursday night at the local hotel which had traditional Austrian dancing, which called for audience participation at times! A truly peaceful location to stay in the summer - thank you

It is in a hotel, so you get all the best of that and all the best of being in your own apartment. Everything was perfect and there were lots of information about activities in the apartment, so even if you don´t plan your stay you´ll know what to do. The terrace was specially wonderful: we enjoyed a lot of breakfasts there seing the amazing landscape. I only can say: Thank you Louise for the perfect vacation!!
