Also ideal for family groups: together yet private.
Quiet, though very central located in Mauterndorf. Holiday destination all year round.
Mauterndorf is located 100km south of Salzburg and 70km north of Villach. Easy reachable over the A10 motorway (99.5% snow chain free) or over the B99 Tauernpass. From the east Vienna is reached in just over 3 hours drive. From Salzburg airport a airport schuttle brings you into the Lungau, or by public train and bus. From Vienna a train goes until Tamsweg and then 10km by bus. The busstop is 3 minutes walk.
The Lungau is an alpine region based at 1040m above sea level, surrounded by meadows and mountains up to just 3000m altitude. The southern location of the high alps gives it a mild and sunny summer climate compared to its altitude. The winters are frozen and sunny with 100% snow certain skiing due to its unique location. The Lungau is one of Austrian best kept secrets.
In the SPRING you can enjoy the beauty of the alpine flowers exploring the meadows. There is a high number of different valleys and meadows to hike onto, cycle or discover them by car. The Lungau is famous for its heritage both natural and cultural. The Italians made beautiful fresco’s on houses during their journeys to sell wine in exchange for salt in Salzburg. Mauterndorf means tol village: the famous castle was the tol point and is still worth a visit. Don’t forget spring skiing: Obertauern at just 15 minutes drive is open until 1st of Mai!
In SUMMER the steam train departing at Mauterndorf station gives you a Fin de siècle feeling riding through the magnificent alpine scenery. The gondolas bring you up the mountain from beginning of june until end of september. But you can also drive your car to 2000m altitude in several valleys to hike in the magnificent mountains. The heated outdoor swimming pool just at 2 minutes walk from your residence is a treat to the family. The touristical destinations are legion and to much to mention all. Some highlights: medieval town of Mauterndorf or Tamsweg, the several water playgrounds in the streams for kids, the Prebersee at 1600m, rafting on the Mur river, the hike to the Speiereck (2411m) top with views into the Karawanken, Höhe Tauern and the Lungau, or by car to Salzburg or the Carinthian Lakes.
The FALL is specially famous because the Larch trees give a true golden colour to the Fall (indian summer). The Lungau is official the sunniest region of Austria making hikes specially attractive. The extended valleys make (e-)cycling tours also enjoyable. Mauterndorf has its own glider airport for adventures in the sky….who dares?
The WINTER of course offers great skiing facilities: Mauterndorf and Sankt Michael im Lungau with the Gosseck Speiereck (1000-2400m - 40km slopes) , Obertauern (1600-2300m, 100km slopes), Fanningberg (1500-2100m, 30km slopes) or the Katschberg - Aineck (1000-2200m - 70km slopes) all within 4 to 15 minutes drive. The skibus stops at just a few minutes walking.
Non skiers enjoy winter hikes or cross country skiing in the crystal-clear alpine air. Or walk 25 minutes to the skicentre over the snow cleaned footpath and enjoy a Glühwein at the slopes.

We arrived in the afternoon and were greeted by a big and beautiful house located close to the town center, but still in quiet surroundings. Our apartment was nicely furnished with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. Floor heating in the bathrooms was wonderful. Beds were comfortable and our two kids quickly found a bedroom of their taste, plus they could play hide and seek, or just find a room for themselves when needed, in the large apartment.
Kitchen was fully equipped and very nice. It had a fantastic view over the breathtaking landscape. We spent our mornings and evenings there much to our enjoyment.
Outside there was a large parking space, plus a nice garden and playground for our kids to enjoy. There were other guests in the house but we never heard them, so obviously a soundproofed house.
All in all this was a perfect stay for us. The town of Mauterndorf is very nice and located close to several interesting tourist attractions, and Salzburg of course. Karin and Ajo went out of their way to ensure we ha a good time during our stay. Thank you for this time!
We were a big group of four families, with children between 0 and 12 years old. The apartment suited us perfectly, with great availability of space and almost one toilet per room (with bath or shower), that helped a lot the confort and the logistics, so that everybody had a good time.
The closeness of the public open-air swimming pool and tennis courts is also a very good asset.
Ajo and Karin were very helpful even remotely (they were themselves enjoying their holidays): with their clear and detailed instructions everything ran smoothly.
Die Wohnung ist sehr groß und auch für Mehrfamilienurlaub (bei uns 3 aus 3 Generationen, insgesamt 9 Personen, davon 3 Kinder 3,3,und 5)) geeignet. Sauber, aber ziemlich spartanisch eingerichtet, dennoch praktisch. Grosses Grundstück, in der Umgebung viele Möglichkeiten zum Ausflug, Wandern oder Sport.
Die Lage ist auch für Kleinkinder ungefährlich.
Wir waren zu acht und die Unterkunft war für uns perfekt.
Die nicht genutzten Schlafzimmer im Erdgeschoss sind jedoch sehr einfach ausgestattet.
Raggiungere Mauterndorf e l'appartamento è stato facile, le indicazioni sono chiare e precise.
Questo per noi è stato il secondo soggiorno, stesso paese, stesso appartamento.
La vacanza è stata molto bella: la natura verdeggiante, il clima ideale ed il paese ospitale con tutti i servizi di cui una famiglia ha bisogno. Questo è il posto ideale per chi è sportivo, per chi ama andare in bici e fare rilassanti passeggiate nei boschi o impegnative escursioni in alta montagna... Vi sono anche molte piscine, sia all'aperto che al coperto nelle vicinanze. Si possono anche visitare interessanti cittadine con le loro feste estive folcloristiche e grandi città non troppo lontane come Salisburgo. Ci sono molti ristoranti, ma per chi vuole risparmiare può fare acquisti nei numerosi supermercati che sono forniti di tutto... E cucinare in appartamento.
Ciò che ha reso la vacanza molto piacevole ed indimenticabile è stato l'appartamento: grande, spazioso e confortevole, davvero speciale. Arredato con stile è provvisto di tutta la biancheria e gli elettrodomestici che a volte possono servire, anche se sei in vacanza... Frigorifero, forno, forno a microonde, lavastoviglie, lavatrice asciugatrice... È fantastico.
Vorrei mettere in evidenza là disponibilità e la gentilezza dei proprietari che ci hanno dato, in ogni occasione, aiuto e supporto, sia durante la prenotazione sia durante il soggiorno anche per le piccole necessità.
Ho consigliato la cosa vacanza ad un'altra famiglia che soggiornerà ad agosto.
Vacanza consigliata a tutti
