Plenty of space and very well appointed. Lovely rooms and a bonus of a huge basement / TV room including computers with internet access, Many attractions are within easy reach so an ideal base for a holiday enabling us to ride cable cars and visit many of the pretty lakeside towns and even go down a salt mine. Highly recommended - we shall be back!

                                                                                              I loved the flat. It's really spacious and great value for money. It's brilliant in summer as there's so much to do: it's in walking distance of the beach, there's mini-golf, slides, walks around the lake, boat trips, tobogganing, water skiiing and wakeboarding, boat and canoe hire, you can take the cable car to the top of the mountain where there are amazing views and nice mountain restaurants, or you can take a train right to the top of an even higher mountain! It's great and you don't even need a car - we just got a bus from Salzburg airport. I've been in winter too and it's really lovely, especially around Christmas time when they have an advent festival with a Christmas market, mulled wine, bands, etc. You need a hire car though to get to the ski lifts. Overall it's a great flat and highly recommended!
