About the property

2 Bedroom apartment, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4, possibly 5)

This attractive mountain view loft is situated at the edge of the picturesque lakeside village of Strobl, with mountain views from all 4 sides of the apartment. It is only a 5-10 minute walk to the village centre and waterfront, with a bakery, supermarket, post office, bank, restaurants and tourist office. A public path runs by the property, that is enjoyed for cycling, jogging, horseback riding and walking, and meanders through a beautiful nature protection area. The beach with a dock and raft, is a 2 minute walk from the door.

Every season offers a different appeal:

The summer days can be spent lazing at the lake, hiking in the mountains, or enjoying visits to cultural and historic places and attractions.

In spring, experience traditional Easter celebrations and customs at various local events.

In winter, the Wolfgangsee Advent and Christmas Market runs from Nov 18-Dec 31, Thursday to Sunday. The local customs and cultural fare are beautifully displayed with a floating Peace Lantern glowing over the lake. For the outdoor enthusiast in the winter months, there are a number of excellent downhill ski areas close by, and cross-country skiing trails which are accessible from the edge of the property, and also up at the Postalm nearby.

There are always museums and galleries to explore, and music events and tours to enjoy throughout the year.

The Salzkammergut area of Austria is well-known for the beauty of its landscape in the lake district at the edge of the Alps, for the fascination and interest of its history, and for the intrigue of its unique culture. There is plenty to see and do, to appeal to all interests, whether it be outdoors enjoying nature, participating in high energy activities like hiking, cycling and skiing, or sightseeing and experiencing the many museums, concerts and cultural events.

Strobl is one of three quaint & historic villages on the shores of Lake Wolfgang, which are linked by road and ferry service. There is good public transportation by bus and train for guests without a car. It is a half hour scenic drive to Salzburg, the famous city of Mozart, with its historic castle and Mirabell Palace, and the home of the 'Sound of Music'.

This spacious 900 square foot 2 bedroom apartment is a welcoming and cozy place to stay while you explore the beauty of the Salzkammergut.

For larger groups or families that need additional space, you may also like to rent our one-bedroom ground floor apartment in the same house which sleeps 2 guests.

It can be viewed at VRBO Listing #453038.

This is a desirable and popular vacation area year round.

About Juliet Lev

The owners, Fritz & Juliet Lev, now live in Canada, although Fritz grew up living in this family home, which originally was a guest house run by his parents. It was their own family vacation apartment until they recently built themselves a retirement home next door. This has enabled them to give others the opportunity to stay in one of the most beautiful parts of Europe and gives them the pleasure of sharing this wonderful area with their guests.

Juliet Lev purchased this apartment in 1985

Why Juliet Lev chose Strobl

This was my childhood home, and it was only as I traveled around the world that I became aware of how fortunate I was to grow up in such a beautiful part of the world.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment has self check-in with a secure Key Box and Code. Our property manager, Karin, lives on the adjoining property, with some knowledge of English. I am available by mobile phone at all times and Karin can also respond locally for inquiries, recommendations or assistance.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Strobl lies a little west of the center of the Salzkammergut region; this is perfect because it is conveniently close both to Salzburg and the towns and villages of Salzkammergut itself. The area is very

beautiful - so much so that the emperor and his retinue spent their summers in nearby Bad Ischl every year. It seems a bit odd, then, that this region is not more famous outside Austria and Germany. It makes for a vacation a little different from the usual fare. There are many sights and tourist destinations within a short drive, and it is also practical to take the bus and save yourself the bother of parking. Or cycle instead - in Austria, cycling is not just for athletes! There are marked cycling routes over quiet back roads for which you can buy maps. Strobl itself is a charming village with the necessary amenities within a short walk of the apartment. You can take several day hikes from Strobl without ever using your car. Overall, highly recommended!"

Absolutely fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

We have had the most fabulous week here!!! Missing it already!! Lovely comfortable apartment- a real home from home. Ideally located very close to amenities in a little lakeside village. The mountains and snow only a short drive away. Fritz was a brilliant help with his knowledge and advice too- we will be back!!

We could not have found a better place

  • 5 of 5

Quaint and roomy..sooo comfortable and clean...wish we could come every year. The location is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the great outdoors. Love that we could arrive anytime because she had a lock box. So professional. She had a book with summaries of everything..we took her suggestions for eating places and we're not disappointed.
