A lovely apartment in an ideal location
We had a great time staying here. The apartment is light and airy, and very homely. We had all the facilities we needed. All the rooms are furnished to a very high standard. The location is right in the centre of the beautiful Bad Ischl and very quiet. Very much recommend!
Great place to stay!
We enjoyed our stay at this property immensely. It was perfect for the size of our group (3) and had all the amenities necessary for our stay. The house is a newly renovated heritage house, very centrally located in Bad Ischl - you can walk everywhere! We were able to park our car at the property, which was a bonus! Our host was fabulous, very friendly and helpful, and even gave us tips about things to see "off the beaten path". We only stayed 2 nights and would stay here again. Definitely recommend!
Charming Villa Holiday Apartment!
This villa was beautiful! The apartment was extremely nice and comfortable. The owners were extremely charming. I would stay here again!
Ideal location and a beautiful, historic setting!
We were actually in the apartment in February 2013, but the website won't let me put that in. We were four persons in the apartment.
The house itself is in an ideal location to wander Bad Ischl on foot - everything is close. Bad Ischl itself has lots of history to see and experience as well as plenty of opportunities for walking/hiking, relaxation (spa, sauna, ...), cultural events and shopping. Restaurants run the gamut from McDonald's to real Italian pizza to Austrian specialties (Restaurant Schnitzelkaiser is very good) to 5-Star dining.
The apartment is well appointed with everything you will need for a comfortable and relaxing stay. It was clean and there are lots of little aesthetically pleasing details (eg. a lampshade decorated with a variety of coloured buttons). The owners are friendly and available for assistance.
We would definitely recommend this holiday apartment to anyone staying in Bad Ischl.
Traumhaft schön in Bad Ischl
Die Villa Schodterer ist ein Traum! Eine wunderschöne Villa inmitten von Bad Ischl gelegen. Nur zwei Gehminuten von der Uferpromenade an der Traun. Die Wohnung ist liebevoll und gemütlich eingerichtet, in einer schönen Mischung von Antiquitäten und modernen Möbeln. Familie Schodterer ist zudem ausserordentlich freundlich und hikfsbereit. Wir kommen sehr gerne wieder.

Sehr aufmerksame, sympathische Vermieter, sehr hilfsbereit. Eine ausserordentlich charmante Wohnung im Herzen Ischls.
Bad Ischl is the heart of the Salzkammergut one of the oldest cultural centres of Europe. From the Bronze Age on salt had been of utmost importance as “White Gold” with high commercial value. In the Imperial days of the 19th century the beneficial properties and healing effects of salt baths were discovered and Ischl became an internationally renowned spa center.
Bad Ischl is still breathing the flair of that time when Kaiser Franz Joseph had his summer resort here and Ischl became the centre of the monarchy.
The villas of the former high society testify that they did not only come here for one visit but again and again.
Today people especially love the marvellous nature of the area. Glaciers, rocks and mountains, large mountain pastures, plateaus, woods and beautiful lakes with drinking-water quality make the Salzkammergut a landscape with a rare high quality of life.
The Villa Schodterer was built as a family-residence by the goldsmith Engelbert Schodterer. From the beginning a part of the house was rented to families who spent their summers in the summer metropolis of the Austrian Hungarian Monarchy for the so called summer-refreshing. 82 summers of his life Franz Joseph 1st spent in Ischl himself and with him all that wanted or had to be near to him. Who ever could afford it built his own villa, those who could not moved into accommodation.
Kings and Emporers visited Franz Joseph here. When he was around, Ischl was the most fashionable place in Europe, also hosting the great masters of art and culture, musicians, composers, conductors, actors … Who ever belonged to the elite in Vienna was to be found in Ischl during summer. But after all most people came for the spa, to regain health or to stay healthy.
The „Schodterer-Villa“ shows the evolution from a town-villa to a cottage, using the design vocabulary of historism. In proportions and ornaments it refers back to the imagination of the promoter. Since the general restoration in 2006 the villa appears in its old brightness.
The house is a protected historic building under a preservation order and therefore has no elevator.
The location of the house at the „Kurpark“ surrounded with other Villas yet away from main roads is ideal. You live central and yet amidst greenery in the neighbourhood of the “Kurhaus” (today theatre and congress house).To dwell here is perfect for congress participants or theatre goers but also for couples or families who value a central base for excursions.
Within a walking distance of 3 minutes you reach the town centre or the “Esplanade”, Ischl's Imperial promenade along the banks of the river Traun with the Café Zauner. From there you have many possibilities to stroll, walk, jog or cycle to the south and to the west. It takes 5 minutes to walk to the villa of the famous composer Franz Lehar, about 10 minutes to the Euro-Thermen-Ressort, 12 minutes to the Kaiserpark and the Kaiservilla, the emperor's summer-residence, and to the open air bath. It's also 12 minutes on foot to the railway and bus station, within 15 minutes in any direction you will be out of town. You need 15 to 25 minutes by car to reach the surrounding lakes or the cable cars of the mountain and ski areas.
The area offers a lot of opportunities for recreation:
Swimming: Bad ischl is located 10 to 15 minutes by car from Wolfgangsee, Hallstättersee, Traunsee and about 25 minutes from Attersee. More than 40 lakes in Salzkammergut invite you to swim (or to ice skate in winter).
