“THis place has everything you need for a relaxing holiday......”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2012

I wanted to revisit St. Gilgen with my family as I can remember what a splendid holiday I had here as a boy many years ago. There is something or everyone in the area - nice walks in the mountains, great places to swim and sunbath by the lake, nice spars and cafes to indulge oneself, good local restaurants to saviour the high calorie local diet ! and nearby culture by the bucket load should you need it– there are many local places of interest (including some Sound of Music locations if that way inclined) and its a good base for short day trip excursions. We had perfect weather most of the time. The flat is located just above the village and within a short walk of all the facilities including a decent supermarket and tourist office. The location means you get a lovely uninterrupted view of the lake from the balcony – and so its easy to take it easy without having to actually get out and do anything…. The flat is comfortable and well equipped – the owners have thought long and hard about what is needed – we all really had a lovely time here.

“The best holiday ever”

Reviewed 6 Sep 2011

Ease of access from Munich made a good beginning, although travelling back on a Saturday requires a little more time. The village was easy to find.The Flat ditto. The village itself was almost too pretty to be true and the surrounding area was breathtaking. We walked a lot, in spite of the heat, and discovered some really great walks, particularly in the hills above Strobl. The odd touring day took us to a range of small towns and villages, each different in itheir own way.Local shopping was good and reasonably priced and there is a wide selection of eateries of all sorts and prices. We couldn't have asked for more in terms of comfort and facilities in the apartment.. A final joy was the friendliness of everyone we met: Austrians do have a certain something and we Scots could cewrtainly learn a lot from them about running an effective tourist infrastructure. We are actively considering a return trip next summer.
