Eleven day Summer Holiday, UK Family of 10 people
We had a super time at the very quiet and clean villa which is located at Wiesersberg Perniwinkle, on the edge of Leogang. We had previously had a two week summer Austrian holiday in Seefeld, Tyrol seven years ago. Our holiday at Leogang was at least as good or better - difficult to say as the children get older!
During the first week we were joined by 5 others in our extended family but the villa was easily large enough for all ten of us. The weather was excellent throughout, allowing us to enjoy the incredible (5 star) and unbeatable view of the valley and surrounding mountains from the balcony almost every day. There were stargazing opportunities too! The barbecue and table tennis table were very well used and young and old alike appreciated the internet access. A larger fridge/freezer would have been nice for our big family group but it wasn't really a problem.
When we finally tore ourselves away from the villa, we had great days on the Asitz and Schmittenhohe cable cars, at Zell am See lake (there are 3 different lidos), at Hohenwerfen Castle, at Liechenstein Klamm (waterfall) and at the Eisriesenwelt ice caves. On our last day we visited Salzburg. We were particularly impressed by the mountain bike course at Leogang (getting ready for the mountain bike world cup) and by the ice caves - we visited the caves on a very hot day and it was amazing to go from hot to cold to hot again in the space of an hour or so. The complete all round view, at Gr. Asitz , a short walk from the top of the Asitz cable car, was the very best experience - I wish I could do that every week.
We enjoyed several visits to Crazy Daisy's restaurant in Zell am See (some good live music one evening) and also watched the laser show on the lake accompanied by classical music. Afternoon tea was very good too at the Landhotel Rupertus in Leogang.
Just before the holiday, we had been to the Olympics in London. But the holiday in Leogang continued the wonderful times, providing a perfect mix of day trips and relaxation at the villa.
Thanks to Margo for all the arrangements and to Tom and Petra for local help :-)
