gorgeous house in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything we dreamed of. Lofer is a beautiful village and very family friendly. Children upto 15 years have free ski passes if accompanied by their parents. We highly recommend the house and village. We will be back!

Lovely Alpine holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Lovely location with mountains all around giving wonderful views. The property is spacious, clean and well kitted-out, with comfy beds, plenty of bathrooms and games rooms for everyone.

We had a great family holiday - the pool and playground are delightful and close, as is the cable car. The village is attractive, spotless and quiet, though we were lucky to catch some evening festivities (helpful tourist info office opposite the cable car gives a sheet of local events). We liked the Cafe Dankl for food and friendly service. Would recommend the Salt Mines at Hallstatt and thermal baths at Berchtesgaden for wet days (both approx 45 mins drive) and Hellbrunn Wasserschloss for fun when it is sunny. The Lofer cable car ride leads to lovely opportunities for all generations to enjoy the mountain restaurants or go for spectacular walks on the Alm. Great place!

A stunning house in delightful Lofer.

  • 5 of 5

We love this house (7 years already)! For a group of 13 people we need space, convenience, facilities, play and rest. This place offers to us (all ages) all of that. Close to the centre, close to the ski lift and offering super landscape views all around.

Very well maintained at all times this house never disappoints.

Also, the owner is more than happy to really useful local info which makes any planning so much easier.

See you again next year!

Great family house with games room

  • 4 of 5

This is a great house for a large family gathering. We especially liked the games room which provided hours of entertainment for the younger members of our group. The large dining room comfortably seated all 12 of us, and the kitchen was well equipped with crockery, glasses, good quality pots and pans etc. The fridge in the kitchen is very small for large parties, so we had to shop daily - but the Spar supermarket is very close. There is another small fridge upstairs which we used for drinks. Be warned though that there are very specific instructions about recycling/rubbish which seem to be very difficult if not impossible to comply with. You have to take all your recycling to the depot which is only open twice a week (not really what you expect when you are on holiday). We thought we had followed the instructions correctly but the owner said we had not and deducted £85 from our deposit.

Lofer is a lovely village and there are lots of nice walks in the area. The village outdoor swimming pool is great, and we went there most days.
