                                                                                                    I reviewed a one week holiday in this apartment in July 2012 [see below] and wrote: "My wife and I would happily stay here again." We have just done so, which, coupled with my earlier review, should be enough to encourage anybody to book some time here; the combination of comfort, equipment, location and all-round quality must be almost impossible to surpass. The owners continue to be very enthusiastic about the area and are anxious that visitors should enjoy their time here. They try to ensure that everything necessary, other than food, is laid on, so that, for example, clingfilm, washing powder and dishwasher tablets are supplied. Bus and train timetables are available in the apartment, and there are plenty of up-to-date guides and publicity literature, as well as maps and plans. Bad Ischl is not situated on a lake, but its position makes it easily the best centre for exploring the Salzkammergut. Except for watersports, it has better facilities than any of the other towns, and public transport is so good that a car is not only indispensible, it should be dispensed with. Even with a suitcase [preferably on wheels], the walk to and from the railway and bus station is easy. In conclusion: the Salzkammergut is a magnificent holiday region, Bad Ischl is the best centre for exploring it, and this apartment is a splendid place in which to stay.

It is in a hotel, so you get all the best of that and all the best of being in your own apartment. Everything was perfect and there were lots of information about activities in the apartment, so even if you don´t plan your stay you´ll know what to do. The terrace was specially wonderful: we enjoyed a lot of breakfasts there seing the amazing landscape. I only can say: Thank you Louise for the perfect vacation!!
