We enjoyed a wonderful holiday at this beautiful villa. Everything has been well thought out for both comfort and convenience, it was spotlessly clean and has everything you need to enjoy a holiday.
The location is excellent because it is located just on the edge of Abtenau, giving the best of both worlds, a supermarket that you can walk to, and beautiful forests and walks that are but a few steps from the house. We made full use of the Salzburgerlandcard to visit many cable cars, museums, and outdoor activities - with good road connections it is possible to be in Salzburg in thirty minutes.
The highlight of the accommodation is the beautiful indoor pool, which enjoys spectacular views over the mountains. This, together with the fitness area and sauna, can be enjoyed whatever the weather. With a few steps up from the main hall, the pool couldn't be easier to access, meaning you can enjoy a relaxing longer visit and or just a quick dip.
Local facilities in Abtenau are very good, and better than in some other small Austrian towns we have visited. You will be able to get everything you need locally, even on foot, without the need to go further afield. Abtenau has both a Billa and a Spar for food shopping, with bakers and other shops in the central area.
The local cable car and toboggan ride was great fun. Thursday evenings are an opportunity to buy a ticket for as many rides as you can, and this was enjoyed by all.
The fact that we were able to come with our small dog to this property made it a very successful holiday.
We are thankful to Torge and Angela for their help in making a wonderful stay.
We very much enjoyed our stay at this house. The pictures of the interior don't really convey how spacious and beautiful the property is. We were a family of 4 with 2 teenagers. The weather was hot so the outdoor pool was well used. The view from the property is stunning and we enjoyed visiting St Gilgen and other areas around the lake during our stay. It's a short walk to the village and there are some nice restaurants in St Gilgen and a supermarket that is walkable in 10ish mins, or a very quick drive away. We swam in the lake, took a boat out on the lake, took the cable car up to enjoy the view from higher up and hired bikes to ride around the lake. We also visited Salzburg which was an easy day trip as we had a car. I'd highly recommend Austria in general and Wolfgangsee for a lake based holiday - and of course this fantastic property.
