The apartment was very well organised and had everything we needed. Great location.

5 of 5
Lovely apartment. Had everything we needed utensils and cooking wise. Great location for visiting Salzburg and surrounding area. We visited the salt mines in Halstatt which our kids (6 and 10) loved. We took an electric motor boat out on Wolfgangsee twice as kids loved being able to drive and lake very beautiful. St. Gilgen and St. Wolfgang very pretty. Visited Dachstein skywalk, suspension bridge and ice palace which had beautiful views and kids really enjoyed. In Salzburg did the schloss Holbrunn palace which had fountain gardens which sprayed water and good audioguide in English. Flat had lovely views from balcony and is very reasonable price. Thanks Louise

Wonderful Winter Holiday

5 of 5
We had a fabulous winter week in Upper Austria, staying at Forsthaus Gut Traunfried. The accommodation was perfect for us, comfortable and spacious, in a peaceful woodland location, a short distance from the lake and Schloss Klaus. The hosts speak English very well, and were quick to respond to our queries upon booking. They were welcoming and flexible, making it a very easy arrival. The location was great for our family skiing at Hinterstoder, which was about 15 minutes drive away. The house also had plenty of useful leaflets on places to visit in the region, and even in winter there are activities organised by the neighbouring national park Kalkalpen, including wild deer viewing, and snowshoe treks - booking is required. The monastery at Schlierbach (about 15 mins drive) was a great find, with a very baroque church, and a cafe with superb views across the valley. Altogether a wonderful winter holiday.
