The large ski resorts of Turracher-Hohe and Kreischberg are also nearby.

"Great cottage with really good location."

Riverside Retreat was recommended to me through a friend who's already been there. We visited in summer and had a great time. The cottage is small and cosy - perfect as a base for exploring the surrounding area. The cycle path which runs past the cottage is a great way of reaching other villages along the valley, we used it to get to the open air swimming lake at Stadl and also to visit Tamsweg. The cottage was clean and had everything we needed. Overall a great holiday and I would definitely like to visit again in the winter season.

Thank you for your much appreciated comments. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.
