Make a holiday rental ski chalet or holiday accommodation in Salzkammergut, Austria your home away from home

Located deep in the rural landscape of Upper Austria, Salzkammergut is one of the most beautiful places to rent holiday accommodation. Salzkammergut is a simply breathtaking region, which turns into an astonishing winter wonderland when the snow arrives. There is a huge amount to do in the region, and you can have a hugely varied holiday from a holiday rental in Salzkammergut.

The majority of people arrive at holiday accommodation in Salzkammergut with the express desire to head into the mountains with a pair of skis. Skiing conditions are exemplary in Salzkammergut, with deep snow and pristine pistes welcoming anyone in a ski chalet in Salzkammergut, from downhill skiers and snowboarders to those with a weakness for back country skiing and boarding. Whatever your level of ability, taking a holiday rental in Salzkammergut will provide you with a sensational skiing holiday. There are delightfully wide, gentle slopes and some excellent English speaking ski schools for first-timers as well as fearsomely steep downhill pistes for those who thrive off adrenaline, and all set to the backdrop of sensational alpine scenery.

During the winter months, visitors to a Salzkammergut property can also enjoy a ride in a horse-drawn sleigh, winter hikes and tobogganing, as well as ice climbing, which is not for the feint-heated!

Miles from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the Salzkammergut region of Upper Austria is a wellness haven. There are a huge number of mountain spas and thermal spring centres throughout the region, and there is nothing which relaxes you more than sitting in a natural thermal pool, surrounded by the silent mountain scenery, and contemplating what you have accomplished and what you are yet to do during your stay in holiday accommodation in Salzkammergut.

There is also a remarkable amount to do from a holiday rental in Salzkammergut during the summer too. Salzkammergut hiking is possibly the most famous activity, and for good reason. There are a huge range of breathtaking trails throughout the mountains, marked for their difficulty and suitability. Information and guides are available from the tourist offices. The mountain biking in the area is simply world-class too, and there are a whole range of seemingly impossible climbs to attempt too. The many lakes which surround holiday properties and ski chalets in Salzkammergut provide a perfect location for sailing, water skiing, windsurfing and even scuba diving.

Attersee is the largest lake in Salzkammergut, and one of the most scenic places to take a holiday rental ski chalet in Salzkammergut.

In Salzkammergut da kann man gut lustig sein! [White Horse Inn]

5 of 5
I reviewed a one week holiday in this apartment in July 2012 [see below] and wrote: "My wife and I would happily stay here again." We have just done so, which, coupled with my earlier review, should be enough to encourage anybody to book some time here; the combination of comfort, equipment, location and all-round quality must be almost impossible to surpass. The owners continue to be very enthusiastic about the area and are anxious that visitors should enjoy their time here. They try to ensure that everything necessary, other than food, is laid on, so that, for example, clingfilm, washing powder and dishwasher tablets are supplied. Bus and train timetables are available in the apartment, and there are plenty of up-to-date guides and publicity literature, as well as maps and plans. Bad Ischl is not situated on a lake, but its position makes it easily the best centre for exploring the Salzkammergut. Except for watersports, it has better facilities than any of the other towns, and public transport is so good that a car is not only indispensible, it should be dispensed with. Even with a suitcase [preferably on wheels], the walk to and from the railway and bus station is easy. In conclusion: the Salzkammergut is a magnificent holiday region, Bad Ischl is the best centre for exploring it, and this apartment is a splendid place in which to stay.

Beautifull chalet, everything was perfect.

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!!!
