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 Gemeinde Sankt Wolfgang im Salzkammergut
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.

Strobl - a perfect location
Strobl is a charming little lakeside town, pretty and peaceful. The Alpine Garden Suite is perfectly situated, just two minutes from the swimming beach and five minutes from the centre for shopping, restaurants and the ferry. Beautiful walks from the door, with easy access by ferry and cable car to the higher terrain, and a forty minute drive to elegant Salzburg. This ground-floor apartment has a spacious comfortable bedroom with a lovely ensuite. (Just a pity the curtains were very thin and barely closed.) The kitchen/lounge was very well equipped with all you would need. The seating area was adequate, but strange that the TV was in the bedroom. It was lovely to sit in the garden in the cool of the evening and listen to the exquisite birdsong. A sun parasol would be useful during the day. We hadn't realised there would be permanent residents in the apartment above who rose at 5.45 during the week, and held an outdoor gathering on the Saturday afternoon and evening (our last day) which went on well into the early hours, just opposite our bedroom window - not what we were expecting on our holiday. However Stroble is a perfect place for a holiday. Enjoy!
Tout simplement parfait!
Nous avons eu un merveilleux séjour à Strobl! La région est magnifique et il y a tant à faire. Nous avons grandement apprécié ce logement qui était tout simplement parfait: vastes pieces, lit confortable, d'une propreté à toute épreuve, bien équipé, dans un environnement magique. Nous avons apprécié la proximité du lac, du centre du village, de la boulangerie, etc.Je n'ai aucune hésitation à recommander cet hébergement
The Alpine Garden Suite was beautiful! Our stay was perfect. The apartment was well equipped for all of our needs and was an easy walk into the quaint town. The lake and boat ride to St Wolfgang was an added bonus. I will definitely return - our stay was much too short.
Fantastic holiday, perfect accommodation!
Great accommodation with large bed, clean bathroom, well equipped kitchen and quality wifi!
Spent the week biking, walking and swimming. Lots of information for this in the flat or great extra advice in local tourist info.
Local shops larger than expected and plenty option for eating out too.
Particularly enjoyed the sun on the garden all through the day so that we could eat in the garden after a long day in the hills.
Local transport was value and reliable. If traveling to Salzburg airport then bus 2 from the airport to the train station, then bus 151 from there to strobl.
Surrounding villages worth a visit too.
Hope the weather is as good for you ;)
We will be back!
Lovely apartment in great location
We enjoyed our stay in the Alpine Garden Suite very much. It was clean with wonderful amenities including a bottle of welcome wine. The location is wonderful for hiking and exploring the Salzkammergut. If we return to Austria we will stay here again. Bravo.
