Beautiful apartment overlooking Wolfgangsee

5 of 5
My husband and I really enjoyed our week in this beautiful apartment. It is very comfortable in every way and we loved the view of Wolfgangsee. St. Gilgen is a very pretty town with fabulous restaurants, a beach from which you can swim in the lake and is a great base to explore further. Salzburg, Bad Ischl and Hallstatt are all close by. The apartment is close to a large supermarket, parking is easy and the chairlift and ferry wharf are nearby. We were very sad to leave and would have loved to stay longer, we would definitely stay again if we return to Austria.

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!
