About the property

Breakfast will be served at the farmhouse parlor if you don't want to prepare it by your own. It would be charged extra - please ask for the price. We offer rolls, homemade bread and marmalade, regional honey, fresh milk and cheese from our dairy in 'Salzburger Land'. You get ham and different type of sausages, a boiled egg from our chickens and one hot beverage. You have the choice between coffee, tea, cacao and hot milk.


Ask about our homemade products. Depending on the season and our own consumption we offer homemade juice, tea, marmalade, schnaps (for drinking or taking as medicine), pumpkin seed oil, calendula ointment, milk, eggs, homemade bread and smoked bacon. The cabinet on the second floor will give an overview of our current range of products.


There is a children's playground equipped with a slide, a sandbox and swings in front of the house. Plain fields are rare in the mountains. Nevertheless we can offer a small flat area with table, bench and chairs for enjoying the sun. Furthermore we have a little petting zoo with rabbits, goats, and a small chicken family in it. And of course we have cats on our farm. You can visit our ponds at the forest edge, a nice place for kids with a tiny house on it and a perfect place for having a picnic on hot summer days.

In winter our steep fields are much more attractive than in summer. They are perfectly made for riding bobsled, building ramps and snowmen. If your children like to visit or feed the animals don't forget to bring some old clothes a cap and rubber boots with you.

Perfect Austrian Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

The breathtaking view, low cost, and easy access to town made this stay for our family of six unforgettable. We had the entire top floor to ourselves with full kitchen, balcony overlooking the valley and Alps (where a cup of coffee or glass of wine was usually had), our own bathroom, and beautifully and simply appointed bedrooms. While the inside was very clean and mostly hand crafted, the hills and surrounding areas (ski towns, alpine villages, shopping, swimming, castles, hiking, biking, rafting, etc) really added to this mountain retreat. The house is family owned and operated (a 4th generation also lives there now) and while they grow and cut a lot of hay, they also have a hobby farm which the kids helped with each morning- goats, chickens, and rabbits. The family also has homemade items (jam, knitted wares, etc) for sale if you are looking for things like that. They also offer a breakfast each morning, if you want, for extra $. We did the homemade b-fast the first morning and, while it was super fresh and delicious, we were a family of 6 and so we went to the nearby grocery and got breakfast and lunch food for the remaining time and then went to Forstau or other nearby towns for dinner. The people in the town of Forstau were terrific and there is even an tourism information booth in town (which is about a 5 minute drive down the hill...and they speak English) to help you in exploring different activities if you are undecided. The scenic drive for us was about an hour past Salzburg and after touring Munich and Salzburg each for a few days, the rural setting was nice finish to our family vacation. I highly recommend this house, this family, and the town for an economic Austrian retreat where you really feel like one of the family. Can't wait to see anyone else's response and feedback.

Sehr gut, ruhig und ganz nette Leute

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine sehr gute Ferien, es ist herrlich ruhig und die Kinder haben sehr viel spass gehabt mit füttern von alle Tieren. Wir haben ganz gut geschlafen, alles war sehr sauber und sehr gemütlich. Die Familien Rettensteiner sind ganz lieb und keine Frage ist zu viel. In der nähe gibt es auch eine kleine Wasserfall, meine Kinder waren jeden Tag dort und mit viel vergnügen. Also wir haten eine super Ferien !

groot apartement met veel ruimte

  • 4 of 5

Geweldig apartement in een rustige omgeving.

groot genoeg voor 2 families, 4 volwassenen en 4 kinderen. Fijne ruime eetkeuken met alles wat je nodig hebt. De eigenaren zijn zeer vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Verse melk, eieren of brood geen enkel probleem, ze regelen het meteen.

apartement is zeer schoon. En 2 grote balkons aan voor en achterkant van het apartement.

Buiten kun je heerlijk in de sneeuw spelen en sleeën

je hebt wel voor alles een auto nodig omdat het net buiten het dorp ligt.

Skiën op de reiteralm is maar 10 min. Van het huis.

Wij komen zeker terug!
