Property description

This charming ground floor one bedroom apartment is situated at the edge of the picturesque lakeside village of Strobl, with mountain views from the apartment. It is only a 5-10 minute walk to the village centre and waterfront, with bakery, supermarket, post office, bank, restaurants and tourist office. A public path runs near the property, that is enjoyed for cycling, jogging, horseback riding and walking, and meanders through a beautiful nature protection area. The beach 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. On December 31st, Strobl brings in the New Year with an amazing firework display over the lake, synchronized to music, which is a memorable event!
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 this 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 Mirabel palace, and the home of the 'Sound of Music'.

This freshly renovated ground floor one bedroom apartment is a welcoming and cozy place to stay while you explore the beauty of the Salzkammergut.
For large groups and families that may need extra space & bedrooms, you may also rent our 2 bedroom apartment, The Mountain View Loft, on the top floor of the same house, which accommodates an additional 4 guests. It can be viewed at VRBO Listing #288364.

This is a desirable and popular vacation area year round.

Why the Owner Chose Gemeinde Strobl, Austria:
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.
