The rooms were lovely and the kitchen well equipped. TV in every room was appreciated by those of us who didn't want to watch football (the European Championships were on). The patio has great views and was perfect for sitting out in the sun and we had two barbecues. The flat is within walking distance of the town (pubs, restaurants, excellent bakers, supermarket). There is lots to do in the town we went to the pool often (entrance free with tourist card) and some of us played disc Golf. This was an excellent base for our walking holiday with many walks available locally and only an hour's drive from Berchetsgarden, Konigsee and the Jenner. Samantha and Arne were friendly and helpful with excellent English.

                                                                                      It was easy to find being only 14 km from Salzburg airport. On arrival, after some admin. stuff, Aurelia explained all the places to visit. The property itself was as it was in the pictures. Immaculately clean with all amenities. It was wam (had to turn down the thermostat) and very comfortable. The heated floor in the bathroom was such a bonus. The property was just across the border from Austria. So we were able to have breakfast in Germany and then nipped acroos the border to have lunch. There are lots of places to eat and prices are reasonable. The property has a nice mountain vista around it. You could almost re-enact the Sound of Music part where Julie Andrews runs up the hill and start singing. You can drive to Salzburg and leave the car in one of the many park and ride places. We left ours near the zoo and cost about 3 euros to park all day. Alternatively, you can catch a bus (return fare 6 Euros). They are very punctual. The famous mountain pass (Grossglockner) is about 30 minutes drive away. Unfortunately, they are open only in May so was not able to go. Hoping to return in the summer to try this out. In conclusion, the property was a delight to stay in and I would recommend it to anyone who just wants to chill out or explore the many picturesque places around it. William

Wir waren mit einer größeren Gruppe dort und dafür ist die große Ferienwohnung ideal. Sie ist sehr groß und hat einen traumhaften Blick auf die Alpen. Die Kreuzeckzahn ist nah zum Skifahren. Prima war auch, dass die Wohnung perfekt ausgestattet war. Zusätzlich wurde auch sehr viel Wert auf Design gelegt. Von den Bädern bis hin zu den Möbeln. Wir haben in der großen Gruppe eine super Zeit gehabt...
