Beautifull chalet, everything was perfect.

5 of 5
We were 2 families and all of us - children and adults - were absolutely happy. The house was very nice, comfortable and clean. Communication with owner and later with Mrs. Johanna was very good. We recommend it!!!

Fabulous property near Salzburg

5 of 5
Really impressed with this chalet - met on arrival by the house keeper, Johanna. 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
