We are completely smitten with the surrounding area and still can't believe our luck at finding such a perfect family holiday. With children aged 12 and 4 we have struggled previously to find holidays to suit the wide age gap, but this ticked all the boxes and many, many more. So many wonderful activities to keep us all happy and engaged, from lake swimming to hiking to cable cars to boating, and dozens in between. We would highly recommend hiring a car because (a) many of the recommended activities are a distance away (we drove 600 miles in total) and (b) the area is just too beautiful to miss! However Bruck is very sweet with some lovely, quaint, authentically Austrian restaurants, so worth a visit to eat or stop for a coffee. Zell am See on the other hand is still very nice, with great lake-side views and activities, but a little too busy/ hectic for us. However, the area boasts so many other gems that we really didn't feel we needed to visit Zell am See more than once. As for the apartment, we could not fault anything about it...it was comfortable, very nicely furnished, well equipped, spotlessly clean and boasted a fabulous view from the balcony. And the hosts were incredibly welcoming and friendly and happy to assist with recommending activities, and when we had to extend our stay due to an unforseen flight problem, they went out of their way to help us and were extremely kind. To summarise, this is a lovely apartment and a great base for exploring what is a breath-takingly beautiful region of Austria, and we won't hesitate to return.

We met up with two other families and rented an entire floor. All of the rooms were well-decorated and had great amenities. The owners allowed us to take part in some of the animal care. Free fresh milk daily!!! The property is ideal for kids. There is a fenced-in yard with playground equipment, sandbox and riding toys. As a part of the stay, we had a guided hike up to the family's mountain home. We added a BBQ to our stay as we were all arriving in the evening and didn't feel like cooking or finding food. The BBQ was a family event with amazing homecooked food. We also took advantage of being able to purchase freshly baked bread each morning. Awesome! We even bought several jams and liquors made there at the castle. We highly recommend staying here and are already planning another stay!

It is modern, spacious, clean and well equipped kitchen for 12 people. The trampoline kept our younger group members entertained. We had a great time staying here and enjoying the activities on the lake and the surrounding mountains although it rained every day during our stay. July 2016
