Beautiful Riverside Cottage, Ideal For Both Winter & Summer Holidays



Updated: 20-Sep-2016
Chalet near Tamsweg, Salzburgerland, Austria - Peaceful South Facing Location With Outstanding Views, Cosy Alpine Experience

The property is set in some of the most outstanding scenery in Austria. The house is set in its own grounds with ample room for parking. There is a cycle path outside the property which is the longest in Europe. The only traffic passing the house are cyclist and walkers, the house is accessible via the cycle path but only for people staying at the house. There are 140km of excellent ski slopes available in the Lungau. The picturesque town of Tamsweg is 6km from the cottage, and has Spa facilities and a wide choice of excellent restaurants around a pretty square. In the summer lots of festivities and music concerts to enjoy whilst dining in the square!!

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.
