A beautiful, charming & special house within walking distance of a wonderful Salzkammergut lake!

5 of 5
We enjoyed a wonderful week here in the middle of our holiday in Austria and it was really the highlight. Very conveniently located in proximity to a number of villages with great places to eat and enjoy the lake and mountains. Despite the ease of access, the house is very quietly situated and cool in the hot summer when we stayed. The attention to detail is great and you always feel very well cared for if any questions arise. Unlike many homes where one is constantly needing little purchase items to enjoy ones stay (e.g. charcoal for the BBQ, serviettes or paper plates) everything is there and ready to be used. A luxury! A lovely Sauna caps the experience.
