Review #6689697 Excellent location, lovely green and leafy neighborhood with very easy access to the Old Town
We have just spent 7 weeks at this house in Parsch, one of the nicest areas of Salzburg. Although we booked the house in order to attend the Salzburg Festival, we found it very easy to visit the nearby towns, villages, lakes and mountains in the region and also in Bavaria. We were very surprised to find a very high level of English everywhere and and excellent public transport system, both on buses and trains. The bus stop and train station were only a short walk from the house, as were a good bakery and super market. We also enjoyed buying produce at the Thursday market at Mirabelle Platz. Because of the convenient location of the house, we frequently went down to the town several times a day on the Number 6 bus. A good tip is to buy a weekly ticket from a tabac, which is a great saving. The owner of the house kindly gave us the names of many good cafes and restaurants that were where the locals eat, and therefore reasonably priced. We particularly enjoyed the cafe society in Salzburg at places such as Cafe Bazaar and Fingerlos cafe. We had many visitors to the house over the period, and those who did not have tickets to the Festival enjoyed watching operas and concerts for free as films at the Dom Platz. Next time we visit we may spend less on buying tickets and enjoy the free films of performances. The house itself was in a lovely sunny position, yet kept cool during some exceptionally hot weather. Another very nice gesture from the owner of the house was to make reservations for us and for our friends for the shuttle bus service to Munich Airport. Because he speaks perfect English, we knew that if we had a problem with lack of German, he would help us out. Concerning the house, it was exactly as pictured, with a very nice outdoor patio and garden. The main bedroom was very large and had a lovely sunny balcony. Although the kitchen was by no means a designer version, it had a very good washing machine and dishwasher,,and enough cutlery, crockerymetc for eight people. Even more important, the wifi was excellent. We were also able to watch BBC television in English.. The house was spotlessly clean when we arrived, and the beds comfortable.
