                                  Very smart and spacious apartment

                                  5 of 5
                                  Thanks, the apartment was lovely, very large and well equipped. We stayed June 2016, just the two of us but we could have had a bathroom each! Spotless Fantastic balcony with great views. Nice warm pool. Would definitely recommend it. During our stay we visited ; Krimml water falls ( awesome), the High Aline road to see the glacier ( which was a breath taking journey ), the Sigmund-Thun gorge ( which is really close but really beautiful plus the quiet lake behind) , Schmittenhohe ( which had fantastic views but quiet expensive ) and Salzburg (which was quite nice but very busy). We didn't eat out in the evening but all the lunches we had were very tasty. Recommend the Paragliding with Sky-42 who are based between Furth and Kaprun and the flight down from Schmittenhohe was fanstastic. Great holiday, only marred but England's pitiful performance in the football! Andrew

                                  This Cottage-house is a wonderful place to stay, it is furnished with lots of thought and love, and you instantly feel comfortable. The beds are comfortable and everything is very clean andwell cared for. We stay for a week and was a very pleasurable and memorable one. It was certainly a lovely experience. The location of the house was excellent, as it is located in a quiet and safe neighbourhood, a few steps from a beautiful natue, where you could easily have a nice walk and see some beautiful panorama views. Zell am See ski area is only a few minutes away, superb ski areas of Saalbach-Hineterglemm 20 min drive and Kitzbuhel area 40 min. For bad weather days or if you want something different - check Windkogel sledge (rodeln). We would definitely recommend this guest house to anyone, a perfect place to stay.
