The apartment had everything we needed. The view from the balcony is just like the photo. There is a rather steep walk up to the building - we didn’t have a car. The town is friendly and charming. We used the wi-fi at the visitors’...More

Additional Rate and Availability Information
HOLIDAY LETTINGS REFUSE TO ALLOW US TO SHOW PRICES LESS THAN A WEEK STAY. IF YOU WISH TO STAY FOR LESS THAN A WEEK, PLEASE CONTACT US FOR A PRICE. Unlike other landlords, we DO NOT believe in charging many 'extras' as we feel the price quoted is the price you should pay and that you should not have to be charged for each set of towels or sheets you use. Therefore the only extra we have is a cleaning fee to be paid in cash on departure. This varies from 50 Euro to 80 Euro depending on the size of the party.

We also strive to keep our security deposit as low as possible, as we believe you are coming on holiday, not moving in for the year!

The cost of travel is high enough without adding several hundreds of pounds on as security. Please contact us to enquire about flexible dates. A week does NOT have to be weekend to weekend. The apartment is also available for stays under a week, BUT A MINIMUM OF THREE NIGHTS on a pro rata basis in the off seasons AT OUR DISCRETION.

About the neighbourhood
The village of St. Gilgen is located on the shores of Lake Wolfgang in the heart of Austria's Salzkammergut, ‘Lake District’ region. Breathtaking scenery and easy access to the city of Salzburg make this an excellent base to explore the surrounding area. The village itself, less than 10 minutes walk from the apartment, has a pretty centre with ample facilities including 2 supermarkets, bakeries, local shops, banks, Internet café {summer only} and restaurants. Rising from the shore of Lake Wolfgang to the east is the Schafberg Mountain with its funicular railway. Behind the apartment is the Zwolferhorn Mountain with a cable car which runs throughout the year, weather permitting. Ski the Zwolferhorn in winter staight back the apartment. Paraglide it in summer! The beautiful waterfront promenade is home to many restaurants, coffee shops and bars, where you can sit and enjoy the view. The boats to St. Wolfgang and Strobl also depart from here. The village has tennis courts and a good sized indoor swimming pool which is open throughout the year. During the summer months one may swim in the lake {one of the warmest in the area} and sunbathe on the beaches. Walking The town is perfect for walkers with 80km of marked paths in and around St Gilgen, all easily accessible from the centre of the resort. The cable car will take you to the top of the Zwolferhorn Mountain, at 1,522 metres, where you will find a number of paths and many huts offering food and drink with fantastic panoramic views. You may wish to return by cable car or on foot. Alternatively, the area is very popular with paragliders and there is a local paragliding school based at the cable car base. Other popular walks include the three hour walk through peaceful woods to St Wolfgang. Walking maps are available at the Tourist Information office. Cycling The area has numerous cycle paths around the lake and cycle hire is available in the village. Around Lake Wolfgang During the summer the historic mountain railway, www.schafbergbahn.at, runs to the top of the Schafberg where you can spend the night in the mountaintop hotel or simply enjoy the view and walk or ride down. You can also continue on the ferry to visit the lovely town of Strobl with its lakeside promenade.

Alternative Travel Flights in and out of Munich are readily available. Car hire is also cheaper in Germany. Travel time to Salzburg from Munich is about 1.5 hours and is a simple trip along the autobahn making this a very viable way to arrive or depart. If you want to bring your own car and drive the whole distance, travelling time from Rotterdam is approximately 11 hours. P&O Ferries provide an overnight service from Hull to Rotterdam with excellent facilities and amenities onboard. Other services are also available, but the benefit of travelling through Holland and Germany is that you avoid the French toll roads.
