Great location - lovely host

4 of 5
Comfortable house. Handy to all the local sights - Salzburg, Mt Spielberg, Mondsee Lake & Berchtesgadener Land. Our kids loved the horses and swam in both lakes though the waterfall lake is very chilly! Alex was a fantastic and attentive host and we would recommend her and her house to anyone visiting this part of the world.

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.
