Interaction with Guests
We (Sofia and Jürgen) are mostly home (we also live at the Guest house), so guests can have as much interaction as they like: just hello and goodbye or some nice conversations. We give gladly tips on what to do or visit, where to eat and much more, but do not ask us to organize your entire holiday ;-)
We are located in a small village (6 km from Mondsee city and 40 kms from Salzburg city), with a grocery shop, a coffee shop, a filling station, 2 big restaurants, 2 ATMs and a beautiful lake beach in walking distance (mostly within a 5-7 minutes walk).
The surroundings are very green and it is possible to hike the 2 mountains near by from our house. In winter it is possible to walk and do long distance skying (with favorable weather) from our house.
If you have a car you have a lot of attractions nearby, some also reachable by bike:
* lakes - Mondsee, Attersee, Wolfgangsee,...
* mountains - Drachenwand, Schafberg, Schober,...
* cities like Salzburg, Bad Ischl, Halltstat,...
There are a lot of activities: swimming, sun bathing, hiking, biking, climbing (out and indoor), diving, sailing, down hill and long distance skying, water skying, skating, doing the "Sound of the music" tour... and sooo much more.
You can park your car for free in our premises.
And here is some information on public transports:
By plane to Salzburg Amadeus Airport. Take the bus to the train station and there take bus 140. See the following instructions for arriving by train and read the part about the bus ;-)
By train to Salzburg train station. The bus station is just outside. Take bus No. 140 tell the driver you want to go to Mondsee Busterminal. At Mondsee you can take bus 592, 593 or 562. From Salzburg to us by bus is about a 50 minutes drive (40 from Salzburg to Mondsee and 10 minutes more to us).
To plan your use of public transportation in Austria use SCOTTY: (website hidden)? (available in English and German).
We are a non smoking house: smokers are welcome but they have to smoke outside ;-)
It is such a nice time to stay with jurgen and sofia. I arrive on a sunday and they were nice enough to pick me up. I could also use the bike and tour around the lake which is a great idea. Jurgen and Sofia are very nice and helpful, and the house is so nicely located next to a small chapel so you never get lost! I definitely enjoyed my stay and recommend it to anybody who wish to relax a bit and stay away from city life!
Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Sofia, qui nous a donné des conseils utiles pour les activités et randonnées dans cette belle region. La chambre était très propre et offrait une jolie vue sur le lac Mondsee. Merci à nos hôtes pour ce beau séjour.
We stayed here for 2 nights. It was a nice and quite room and the view from room was amazing. Lake is at a walkable distance from there. Jurgen and Sofia were friendly and pleasant host and helped us with all sort of information. They have a good collection of brochures, time tables and maps for things to do in surrounding area. And a good stock of beers and juices as well :) Would love to go there again...
We stayed a few days in early June. The place was absolutely incredible including the view from the room, the quality and loveliness of the room itself, and of course Jurgen and Sofia were so warm and friendly. It was not like staying at a hotel or a guesthouse, we were staying in their home! And thats always the biggest positive one can expect when travelling. Sofia provided us bicycles to explore the lake and hills around. The lake is a 10 minute walk away and we enjoyed nice sunsets there. Overall, we felt absolutely lucky to have made the decision to stay here and we are still discussing when and how we can go back and stay for more days next time! Book without thinking twice!
Dear Sid, this place sounds great! I will book myself some holidays ;-)
We are very happy that you felt at home. That is exactly what we offer our guests: a home where they are welcome and it is really good when the guests feel and appreciate it.
I truly hope you return, it would be a pleasure to host you again! Our returning guests have a special price ;-)
Ich habe kein Auto gehabt. Wenn ich ein Auto gehabt hätte, wäre noch besser.
We had the most amazing time here. Mrs Leitner was extremely kind and generous. There were many instances when she went out of her way to help us when we encountered some difficulties in our travel transport arrangements. We are very thankful and glad that we had an enjoyable stay here.

We Sofia (from Portugal) and me Jürgen (from Bavaria) both moved here to that wonderful place amidst the mountains and lakes, where nature is still close and sometimes very present through thunderstorms or hot sunshine. Yet with Salzburg and so many other famous spots, culture is near. So we decided not only to live here but also to make our place available for guest and even for Seminars to enjoy this abundance together with us!
Hope You will also visit us and experience it for Yourself!
Besides that Sofia provides beautiful, relaxing and supporting therapies.
And I´m sometimes out to fly a little bit - we fly for a smile;-)
