We are a brother, sister and husband combo, who have a passion for Austria and fell in love with this beautiful farmhouse the minute we saw it. We enjoy holidaying here, relaxing and having fun in the mountains. We hope you will too.

To say my family and I had an utterly fabulous time during a week in Hansl's house over Christmas 2014 would be a gross understatement. It is truly an unforgettable experience to stay in an old farmhouse like this. It has a great mix of old school charm with the right modern touches.
The farmhouse is an easy drive from Salzburg and it's a short trip in to Abtenau or Annaberg for groceries/restaurants.
Rowena was really helpful and responded promptly to all emails. The neighbour, Loisi, was also extremely helpful. The house was clean and is as wonderful as the photos suggest.
I highly recommend this to anyone looking for something special on their next holiday!
The house is only 5 km from the village of Abtenau which is very picturesque and boasts not only an outdoor family swimming complex, a cable car with summer toboggan ride but also has numerous restaurants and a few shops to browse around. There are a couple of large supermarkets in Abtenau for all your groceries and provisions. The village of Russbach (entrance to Dachstein West Ski Region) is only a 10 minute drive away and also has a swimming complex and cable car to whisk you to dizzy heights. During the winter this is a great family skiing resort and the summer draws keen ramblers and mountain walkers.
If you prefer lakes then you must visit Gosausee which is a short drive away and also Hallstattersee. Hallstatt, is the oldest still inhabited village in Europe, owing its longevity to the local deposits of salt. The salt mine is worth a visit or you can meander through the cobbled streets and enjoy a drink overlooking the lake. Wolfgangsee is also worth a visit and although slightly further afield (approx 40 minutes drive) it is a beautiful lake and one of the most romantic in Austria. The village of St Gilgen which lies at the western edge of the lake has many associations with Mozart as his mother, Anna Maria Pertl, was born here in 1720 and his sister, Nannerl, settled here after she married. St.Wolfgang which sits at the opposite side of Wolfgangsee is a very quaint village with lots of interesting shops dotted throughout its cobbled streets.
The beautiful Baroque city of Salzburg is a mere 35 minute drive from the house. Mozart was born here in 1756 and the house of his birthplace is now a popular tourist attraction. The city is also the setting for the Salzburg festival, a world renowned annual event that attracts music lovers, especially Mozart fans from all over the world. Salzburg was also the setting for the “Sound of Music” and you can join one of the many tours themed on the film.
A stroll through the beautiful Mirabell gardens or a funicular ride up to the Schloss at the top of the hill for a breathtaking view over the city and the river Salzach are also worth experiencing.
Only 40 minutes drive to the west and across the border into Germany is the town of Berchtesgaden which sits at the bottom of the world famous Kehlsteinhaus which became Hitler’s favourite residence also known as “The Eagles Nest”.
There are so many things to see and do in the Salzburgerland and Salzkammergut regions of Austria it would be impossible to list them all but apart from sightseeing here are a few more ideas for those who like to be active:-
Ballooning, Biking, Fishing, Hiking, Mountaineering, Skiing, swimming and horse riding...
