We could ask nothing more for a really easygoing and relaxing summer holiday. Franz was very friendly and accommodating, and he had thought of literally everything to make the guests’ stay perfect. The bed was one of the most comfortable ones I have ever slept in. The view from the balcony to the lake was stunning. Wifi was really fast and the kitchen had everything to prepare proper meals. The cabin was really tidy. The location could not be better: you have your own peace, yet you are quite close to shops and restaurants and you can start hiking straight from the cabin. If you are looking for a stay in Zell am See area, look no further and book this cabin. Kiitos vielä, Franz! :)

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
