"A super studio appartment"
We spent a week in this small but beutifully maintained modern studio appartment for two people. The very comfortable drop down bed was easy to lower and raise.There was everything in the kitchen one needed for self catering The bathroom was very modern with a super shower . With the cable T V we were able to view BBC. From the balcony there were terrific views of Lake Wolfgangsee. Use of a car would be needed by most people as it's a good walk up from the town . We found the Spar at bottom of the hill stock everything we needed.
We found Hallstatt - a World Heritage site - well worth a visit , and of course , St Wolfgang

"..a light, clean, comfortable and spacious haven with panoramic views which we return to year after year"
this lovely studio apartment is just perfect for us which is why we have returned three times.Spacious and light with a good size bathroom and excellent shower. Large balcony with the most stunning views of lake and mountains...it truly is a getaway from it all but with all local amenites to hand. Two large supermarkets close by and the town easily walkable providing a good choice of restaurants and cafes and of course the lake and boat trips.Walks galore from the door step and we use public transport which is a very good service, under an hour to Salzburg and Bad Ischl....both offering a wide variety of interests.

"well appointed flat with modern,well thought through design and equipment"
we have friends who have an apartment nearby and so already knew what the area can offer; great views and lots of outdoor activity as well as fairly close to Salzburg, a long term favourite city. For this visit we were there for the sking c 30 mins away and good fun, we normally do lots of walking, cycling and playing about on/in the water.
the apartment is modern, well thought through and well equipped, dealing with the leaseholder was easy
