The apartment is smart, clean and thoughtfully well-equipped by the charming owners. The large balcony has a spectacular view over the meadows, forests and mountains. There are delightful walks straight from the door and throughout the local area. You are very well placed for getting into Salzburg, too - don't bother driving but use the free park and ride at the rail station at the bottom of the hill and it's just 15 minutes into the city. The Salzkammergut Lakes are within easy driving distance - Wolfgangsee and Mondsee are both beautiful and the little town of Hallstatt especially attractive when viewed from a boat on the lake. You can book the Armstorfers' apartment with confidence and be sure of a warm welcome to this lovely part of Austria.

Bowl of fruit and Prosecco in the fridge is a nice touch, plus the personal welcome from the owners. Local Spar about 9km away which stocked pretty much everything we needed. We went up the Donnaberg cable car when it was open on a beautifully sunny day, and walked back down the mountain home. Has a hilarious Thursday night at the local hotel which had traditional Austrian dancing, which called for audience participation at times! A truly peaceful location to stay in the summer - thank you

The apartment was super clean and in excellent condition. Good quality linens were provided and bath & kitchen linens were changed after 5 days in our 7 day stay. This was fabulous and unusual in our previous apartment stays. A good sized balcony which caught the afternoon sun, great for drying our washing or a drink with nibbles after a hard day out. There was a parking spot provided with the apartment but we didn't need it. Good TV facilities which our hosts upgraded (increased English channels) during our stay. The location was super, 7mins to a Spar supermarket walking along the river and thru a cool treelined path or a 5min walk to the train & bus station made it all so easy to get around. Our hosts were lovely, super helpful prior to our arrival & during our stay, they couldn't do enough to make sure you would enjoy the apartment or the town of Bad Ischl and its surrounding areas. We thank them for helping our stay to be so memorable. We recommend this apartment and the town of Bad Ischl it has many charms and must do activities as well a great base for visiting Hallstatt, St Wolfgang, St Gilgen, Salzburg, many wonderful walks around beautiful lakes like Gosausee and others. Its a place to stay and enjoy a wonderful magical area full of many pleasures Summer or Winter.
