Pleasant apartment, well positioned for exploring the Salzkammergut area.

5 of 5
The apartment was clean, and adequately equipped. We particularly enjoyed the balcony, and its view across Wolfgangsee to the mountains. The parking space for the car was welcome, and it was very useful to have the local Information Centre and a supermarket quite close by. Sankt Gilgen is a pleasant town, just a few minutes' walk from the apartment, with a fair choice of places to eat and shop, and easy access to the boats that ferry up and down the lake. Besides the other towns around the lake, of which Sankt Wolfgang is perhaps the most charming, there are several other picturesque lakes within easy reach by car. Salzburg, only 45 minutes away by car, is well worth a visit, and so is Bad Ischl, where we enjoyed a visit to Kaiser Franz Josef's summer residence. On a fine day, a trip on the mountain railway from Sankt Wolfgang to the summit of Schafberg is not to be missed! We had a little difficulty getting the television to work at first, but Mr. Klamas was available by phone and was soon able to solve the problem.

Fantastic well-equipped house, wonderful peaceful location

5 of 5
Thank you to Wolfgang and Sabine for creating such a brilliant property. Visiting with our children, we loved the house. It's really well equipped for a great outdoor holiday. We loved walking in the hills around the house. The location is excellent for accessing Salzburg and the surrounding region and we were able to do lots of day trips. The booking process was smooth and everything was better than we had expected. A great place for a holiday in the hills. We will definitely be back!
