A fantastic stay in a big, spacious, family house

  • 5 of 5

I fell in love with the house. It was spacious, clean and very well equipped. The arrangement of rooms was effective for family living and enough room for adults and children alike. The quietness and solitude with the amazing views made it all the more special. Perfectly situated at the edge of the village which was delightful full. The views and scenery were breathtaking and the sounds of the trickling stream provided a very relaxed way of life. The house was well equipped and the rooms decorated to a good standard and made to feel extremely homely. The kitchen was lovely and sociable and it was lovely to be able to eat and have breakfast I. The same room. The balcony was large enough to offer alternative dining facilities and in the midst of summer it was a pleasant end to a day. As the sun went down many night were spent star gazing! Both bathrooms had effective showers which offered plenty of hot water and great pressure. The owners had spent time making sure their guests were fully catered for and lots of information and brochures were available for viewing. Overall it was a fantastic holiday with as much to do in the summer as the winter skiing season. There are plenty of local attractions and the house is perfectly situated to explore the region as and when we wanted to.

Great house

  • 4 of 5

Great house. It was big enough for a big group. It has all the comfort you want (except maybe a frying pan).

Not everything was clean, but for the price we paid, it was oke. In 10 minutes it was clean enough.

Skiing was great. Unfortunately the snow became slushy because of the temperature, but we loved it anyway. We might come again....

From the Owner

The location, being on the outskirts of a traditional village but also so close to the lifts of the Dachstein West. The space inside also allows for everyone to get on with whatever they are doing without feeling too cramped.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Salzburg at 50 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Dunkirk (10 hour drive - no tolls) at 700 Miles Nearest Train : Golling at 30 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : Golling (A10) at 30 Kilometres Nearest Ski : Dachstein West at 500 Metres Car: recommended

The house is situated in the hamlet of Russbach-Gseng. The village of Russbach is a delightful little community at the heart of the Dachstein West Ski Region and on the edge of the Salzkammergut (the Austrian Lake District). This is an area loved by Austrian honeymooners and a cherished getaway for the citizens of Salzburg and, perhaps more importantly, is relatively little known elsewhere. This will surprise anyone who has visited what Emperor Franz Joseph I described as an 'earthly paradise' and been captivated by the beauty of its rugged mountains, pristine glacier lakes, forests and lush alpine meadows.

In the winter, the Dachstein West provides a most family-friendly resort (winner of various awards) but the area is also a fantastic summer holiday region (with plenty to do for the active, the health conscious, the culture lover and also for children).

From the Owner

A traditional house in the very friendly village of Russbach. It is in a quiet location but also only five hundred metres from the nearest lift (with easy parking and little queues) or indeed only one kilometre from the Hornbahn Ski Station. The house has plenty of space for two or more families to stay together without getting in each other's way. As for the summer, there is so much to do: active adventure in the mountains, fun for the children, culture in adundance or just relax and unwind on one of the balconies and admire the views!!!
