Lovely cottage in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Riverside Cottage. It was our first trip to Austria and we couldn't have chosen better accommodation or location. The cottage was cosy, clean and welcoming after two very long days of driving, with all the facilities needed. Especially happy with the brand new freezer - lots of ice for the evening drinks and nice to be able to shop for a few days in one go. Our favourite bit was the cycle path - we spent many hours setting off from the cottage to cycle, stopping for lunch, then cycling back. As my husband had a fractured foot at the time and couldn't walk too far this was even more important to us. Loved sitting in the outside (but inside) area both for breakfast and in the evening. Enjoyed falling asleep to the sound of the river running past and waving to the people in their canoes as they whizzed by. ~The steam trains were fun to see and the daily trains were not intrusive at all. Would recommend Riverside Cottage to anyone wanting a pretty retreat and hope to be able to return in the future.

Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Travelling by motorbike around Germany, Hungary and Austria, we rented the beautiful riverside cottage for a week. Our week consisted of visiting the sights of the area including taking in the Motogp at the Red Bull Ring, walking to Tamsweg and getting the train back to Ramingstein, visiting Murau for a day on the train and just relaxing!! Excellently clean and equipped, we couldn't have asked for more. An enjoyable week, and we will return one day. Thank you very much David for enabling us to rent your cottage.

lovely and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from a very pleasant two weeks at Riverside Cottage and have spent a very comfortable time. The property was ideal for us with views over the river Mur and the narrow gauge railway. The property was comfortable and well maintained and the local manager called by to check that was all was well ( which it was). It might be helpful in the description to make it clear that access to the 2nd bedroom is through the first one- not a problem for us but might be relevant to some people. There is a fridge but no freezer- again not a problem so long as you are aware of it.

Very good value for the holiday and handily placed for local sightseeing. We filled everyday without problems and there was lots of information on things to do in the property. Would recommend

Special interest holidays:

Ideal location for walkers and cyclists as the house is adjacent to the longest cycle path in Europe. the path follows the beautiful River Mur valley, in the unspoilt green heart of Austria. For those people interested in steam trains the Murtlebahn narrow gauge railway passes the house and during the summer months the steam train runs from Tamsweg to Murau running through the delightful Mur Valley on a 2 hour journey taking in some magnificent scenery.


There are several outside pools within 20 min drive, set within the beautiful Alpine scenery.


1 hour 15 mins sw of Salzburg, good motorway connection.

1 hour 30 mins from Klagenfurt.

3 hours drive from Venice. Vienna, Budapest and Munich all with good road links.


15 minute walk to the charming hamlet of Ramingstein, where there are food shops and restaurants. 10 min drive to the pretty town of Tamsweg, where there is a wide selection of restaurants and supermarkets.

Further Details:

There is an extensive booklet at the Cottage which gives information on where to eat, visit etc.
