The Austrian Alps region
The Lungau Valley is one of Austria's best kept secrets enjoying little in the way of mass Tourism and yet with great facilities and opportunities to suit a great range of Holiday Makers.
The beautiful mountainous landscape provides the perfect place for outdoor activities and sports. In the Winter visitors enjoy several sizeable ski areas with much off-piste and cross-country ski tracks. You can also enjoy Horse-drawn Carriage Rides, Ice-skating on natural ponds, Snow Shoe Tours, Winter Walks, Sledging, Golfing (yes really - there is a Golf/Ski pass to those who are interested!), and of course there are numerous cosy Alpine Huts serving hot drinks and local delicacies to enjoy.
In the warmer months there is much opportunity to explore with countless Hiking and Walking Trails taking those who follow them on a sight seeing adventure to mountain lakes and waterfalls. Additionally there is a long stretch of well signed Nordic Walking paths, with purpose made warming/rest stations. To that there is also a wide array of Mountain Bike networks and Cycle trails, many of which begin just a few minutes of the accommodation. You can enjoy summer Golf in the Mountains, select from one of the many lovely Outdoor Swimming Pools, play Mini-Golf, visit Fun-Parks and Nature Reserves, go Fishing - there are even Children-Specific Fishing ponds, Play Tennis, go Horseriding and so much more.
If you are interested in the Historical Sites the valley has much to offer with beautiful Churches, Castles and local Museums. One of the more famous Churches has been undergoing constant restoration due to the weather conditions it is exposed to in it's open location on the mountainside. Its interior is quite incredible with unmissable carvings and art work that has to be seen to be believed. The Mauterndorf Castle is open almost all year round and is host to many Medieval festivals for both adults and children to enjoy. There you can also find one of the most well-recommended restaurants in the Valley.
The Valley is generally hot in Summer, colourful and still warm in Autumn, beautifully white and cold in Winter and awakens with flowers and greenery again for the Spring. It is a fantastic all year round holiday destination, offering something for the adventurers, the sports enthusiasts, those who want to simply relax and for those who want to explore and learn.
St Michael im Lungau
St Michael is a picturesque town found in the heart of the Lungau Holiday Region of Austria. Although it is not the largest town in the Valley it is considered to be the centre for Tourism and boasts a good variety of Bars, Shops, Cafes, Bakeries, Supermarkets and Banks, whilst maintaining it's "Chocolate Box" feel.
Here you can enjoy year round festivals and celebrations including Autumns "Samson Mann", or the magical Winter Advent Market with St Nikolaus and his Krampus (a creature you would not like to get on the wrong side of!). In Spring be witness to or join those climbing the various "May Trees" erected throughout the towns. In Summer join any one of the Wine, Food or Music Festivals, Childrens Events, watch Bycycle Races, observe (or join in) the huge Samsonman Running Race, classic car events, Motorbike Tours and many more options.
The Church located in the town centre is well worth a visit, as are some smaller places of worship located within a short walk from the house. The clear waters of the River Mur run only a short distance away, along which you can enjoy leisurely strolls or bike rides. Alternatively, from the doorstep it is very easy to begin a hike up the Speiereck Mountain - or if you prefer take a cable car or chair to the top and walk/ride back down!
Set in the mountainside, the town boasts an idyllic heated outdoor pool with a mini golf course attached. There you can also delight in some really good cuisine for excellent value.
Within easy reach there is also Tennis, Bowling, Fishing, Golf, Horse Riding, Adventure Parks and so much more.
Then of course their are the various Ski Areas, the nearest of which can be reached less than 1km from the Accommodation. The valley in total offers over 300km downhill piste with some good off piste opportunities and is mostly Snow-Sure from December to April each year. In addition to the downhill attraction there are nearly 200km of Cross Country tracks to follow. The Lungau is a very popular spot for Ski Tourers and detailed maps can be purchased from the Tourist Office. If you don't like to slide you could always go on an organised Winter Walk or Snow Shoe tour. Then if Snow Sports aren't for you, the winter wonderlandscape can be just as easily experienced with a romantic Horse Drawn Carriage/Sleigh Ride.

"A real good place for a nice holiday"
Again it was a pleasure to arrive in this pleasant house. We were here for the 3 time and it felt like coming home.
The apartments we stayed were nice and comfortable. The Aineck apartment suited our family very well and after we our family expansion we stayed in the bigger top Speiereck apartment which was even more comfortable with 2 bathrooms and plenty of space for the kids to play and a very nice balcony with a view over the valley.
We enjoyed Skiing in the Lungau valley a the lot. The pistes were very good prepared, with lots of variation and the sun was out there every day.
We hope to see you next year for our Skiing Holiday.

"What a place..."
We had a lovely week at Haus Bellevue in January. The apartment had everything you could possibly need for a week away and it was huge - plenty of room for relaxing after a long day up the mountain! T… More

"For the seventh time in the same place, in the same apartment - it speaks for all"
In January this year we visited St. Michael im Lungau for the eighth time. Last seven years we stayed in the same apartment Speiereck, in the same house. As I wrote above, it speaks for all. I love this place, it is large spacious apartment with beautiful view from the main bedroom and from the living room. The living room is an unrivalled place where we can meet every evening and night with all of our friends occupying the remaining apartments in the house - everytimes we try to book "all the house" to have a fun and a good company. Everything is clean and tidy and we can see improvements every other year, because lovely owners of the house - Gary and Amanda - have been working on it hardly. In the kitchen, evyrything necessary is available. I just have one exception while glorifying the apartment - it is owl-light or lack of good light in all rooms and in the downstairs toilet it is very cold, but it is completely new, so may be it will be heated later on. Otherwice, everything is perfect, including perfect access to the house and perfect skiing - it should be stressed! Me and my family, all we are very happy we found such a nice place for our winter holidays.

"Relaxing Winter Wonderland"
We had a superb stay at Haus Bellevue, Gary and Amanda made us feel welcome and comfortable for the entire stay. With easy access to all the Lungau valley slopes and shops, this is an amazingly relaxing and beautiful place to stay. Speireck apartment is large, clean and comfortable with loads of room to hang out in the evening, perfect for a family or a group of friends. Being 10 minutes walk to sleepy St Michael, it is not for you if you want a party town atmosphere but great for a nice meal out in the evening. But if you have a car and want to explore Lungau Valley then this is the perfect quiet relaxing base.

"Best Christmas yet......"
Spent Christmas at Haus Bellevue and had the best Christmas ever. Travelled with the extended family for a week of skiing in the Lungau valley, and didn't want to leave at the end of it.
Accommodation is spotlessly clean, very comfortable, and is well equipped with all you would ever think to need on a week away from home, even to prepare Christmas dinner!
Hosts Amanda and Gary were very welcoming, and were full of information for us on where to ski, eat, visit etc. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
All in all we'd definitely recommend the accommodation and are hoping to return soon and ski the areas we didn't get too.
