Self-catering holiday rentals for your home stay

Burgenland is hidden away in the far east of Austria, with a mild, welcoming climate and a landscape that contrasts with the mountains more typical of Austria. This is a fine place of ancient castles and fine wine. Some call it the land of the castles, and they're all easy to find from your holiday homes. There is, also easily accessible from your holiday lets, attractive scenery, numerous outdoor activities, coupled with friendly people, great locally-produced food and, of course, fresh air. As you'll find from your holiday let, or home stay, life here has its own pace, one that is guaranteed to leave you relaxed. A home stay will certainly bring you closer to the way the locals live their lives. German is the language many people speak, but English is spoken by almost all, so your welcome will be a warm one. The choice of attractions in Burgenland is many and various. For an ideal family activity, a trip to the majesty that is Lake Neusiedl is a must. Bird-watchers come from around the world to see the abundant life that is here. It's a magical, ancient place of great peace that makes a great outdoor activity from your rental. Group activities are easy to find. Burgenland is famous for its wines, and what could be a better outing than a visit to a winery? Red wines are recommended, as well as a range of dessert wines. Perhaps most famous of all in this region are the castles, and an exciting thing to do is a visit to one or more, a trip that makes for a perfect school holidays activity. You can plan a route that takes in all six major castles. One of the oldest, Burg Gussing, was built around an extinct volcano. A group of jazz fans may want to visit the village of Wiesen during its jazz festival, an ideal short break. This isn't a large event, but it's perfect for getting up close and personal with the musicians. For fans of classical music, every five years, in the atmospheric surroundings of an old quarry, a famous Passion Play is enacted. It's near the small town of Rust, otherwise well-known for the storks that nest on the roof-tops of its beautiful old buildings. This alone makes it a perfect sight-seeing trip from your family rental.

The best time to enjoy Burgenland

A summer holiday in Burgenland, arranged from your choice of holiday homes, is an ideal time to enjoy all that it has to offer. The climate is kind here, the weather is almost always sunny, and what's better than a swim on a sunny day? Your holiday lettings might feature a pool. And then there are the famous lakes. Lake Neusiedl is rightly designated a UNESCO world heritage site, with sailing and swimming as well as sunning on the beaches. Lake Neusiedl is by far the biggest lake and because it is not very deep, the water is warm enough for children to bathe in and very safe too. If you would like to learn a new sport, one of the local windsurfing establishments will be happy to help you. Nearby there are other lakes, again with swimming facilities and activities for fans of watersports. In the winter the landscape is, if anything, more magical, transformed by snow and ice. You will have many activities for winter trips from your holiday lets. The lakes freeze over, so ice-skating is popular and easy to arrange for an exciting group activity. Or perhaps from your holiday homes in Burgenland, you'd prefer a romantic horse carriage ride. Your holiday’s lettings will be well-heated, so a walk out into the winter landscape will be well-rewarded when you return home. And also when you take a walk to your local restaurant, where the cuisine features goulash from just across the border in Hungary, matched with a fine Burgenland wine, a red with the main meal, a dessert wine to follow. Winter is good time for a visit to the regional capital, Eisenstadt. The Esterhazy Palace is an intimate place that will make you feel as if you're inhabitants there. The city is also well-known as the place where the composer Joseph Haydn spent much of his life. There's a museum dedicated to him, perfect for anybody with even a small interest in classical music. Your children may prefer the fire department museum. All seasons are great in this region, with holiday rentals you can see it as the locals do. And with Owners Direct, your booking for holiday homes in Burgenland is safe and secure.
