We very much enjoyed our stay at this house. The pictures of the interior don't really convey how spacious and beautiful the property is. We were a family of 4 with 2 teenagers. The weather was hot so the outdoor pool was well used. The view from the property is stunning and we enjoyed visiting St Gilgen and other areas around the lake during our stay. It's a short walk to the village and there are some nice restaurants in St Gilgen and a supermarket that is walkable in 10ish mins, or a very quick drive away. We swam in the lake, took a boat out on the lake, took the cable car up to enjoy the view from higher up and hired bikes to ride around the lake. We also visited Salzburg which was an easy day trip as we had a car. I'd highly recommend Austria in general and Wolfgangsee for a lake based holiday - and of course this fantastic property.
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.
