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!
