About This Listing
Altaussee is situated in the geographical center of Austria, also known as the Salzkammergut. Altaussee is renowned amongst Austrians as an idyllic and premier holiday destination. It's the perfect place for people who are sporty or enjoy the Alps.
Lightmountain lodge is one of the closest private houses to the ski area, in beautiful surroundings, with easy access to the slopes and local village.
The lodge has been lovingly renovated, has a modern eco friendly underfloor heating, as well as a traditional fireplace, wireless internet and satellite tv.
ALL THE MOD CON’S
LCD TV has been installed, with CD/DVD player.
We have also installed a digital barometer system to give you an idea as to what the weather could be like during your stay.
A traditional “Kachelofen.” (which is a special wood oven) is situated in the center of the house. So if the evening’s get cool, you can sit in the veranda and enjoy a real fire, or snuggle up against it with a good book on the bench in the dining area.
With Austria being one of the world leaders in green issue, our lodge has one of the latest “eco-friendly”heating systems.
The system extracts the warm moisture from the outside air, and converts it to heat using 1/4 of the electricity to power the underfloor heating.
Every room is individually thermal controlled, which can also be adjusted remotely.
World championship Mountain biking and unrivalled beautiful walks in summer and winter.
Great family ski area, if you want to get away from the crowd, and there is a tree climbing park in summer.
Altaussee now has the Narzissen Bad 5star luxuary day Spa (starting at around €20 for a half day pass)
The drink water quality lake is just over 1k from the house. There are also many other beautiful lakes to enjoy in the area.
The Altaussee salt mine (as featured in the WW2 Film Monuments Men) has always been a popular tourist attraction.
The Dachstein glacier is a great day out, with the new sky walk, as well as the ice caves in summer.
The house originally belonged to my Grandparents, and we have lovingly renovated it to a very high standard. We ask people to respect the house as if it were their own.
We kindly ask that all outside shoes are roomed in the entrance hall.
No pets please.
Strictly NO SMOKING.
Ingrid's very sweet and kind parents met us at the house, gave us the keys, and explained where things were in the house. They were very patient with our German, but I think we all understood each other pretty well. The description was very (email hidden) fact even better than we had expected. The house was incredibly nice with everything seemingly brand new. It was light and bright and clean. It had everything one would need to cook there and sleep and do laundry. Decor was totally nice and simple and in very good taste....all newly done on inside. It was a darling, clean, light house with three nice bedrooms upstairs and one downstairs, a perfectly great kitchen, eating area and another little living space. 2 bathrooms upstairs and one downstairs. Washer and Dryer. Everything worked and was clean and new. Towels/ bedding etc. all very nice. The neighborhood was basically along a mountain road leading up to a ski area with a bubbling brook/river next to the house...wonderful sound.... and slopes going up on either side of the valley with other small similar houses along the way. You parked on road side of the river, walked over a bridge and the house was right there...not a big deal walk or anything. Ingrid's parents met us the last day as well to collect the keys and kindly sent us on our way with cookie treats...We had a very memorable stay and would highly recommend it to anyone.
The house is perfect - interior is euromodern design with light wood cabinets and matching wood furniture and glass & metal fixtures in bathrooms. The stream beside the house is to right out of a picture postcard of scenic Austria. Plus the parents of the owner met us to show us around the house and were available in the area if there were any problems. There were none. One of my best house rentals and I have done many.
The house is beautiful and charming, very clean, cosy, all new facilities throughout, comfortable and extremely well equipped for a self catering holiday (it has everything you could possibly need and more). We had a very warm welcome from the owners who clearly care about ensuring you have a comfortable stay and great trip. They were helpful in giving us plenty of suggestions and information on places to visit and things to do in the local area. The house location is excellent and easy to find, and the village itself was very pretty and quiet (start of July). Swimming in the lake was a bonus, the water so clear, and a treat to have such good weather at the start of our week. We definitely recommend staying at this property.
Our stay in Austria was fantastic, and made even better by such a lovely house and welcoming guests! Not only did they put up a Christmas tree for us (which our daughters were thrilled with), but they made us feel so welcome. The house is in an excellent location, very family friendly and super clean and tidy. Highly recommended and we will be back!
This chalet is picture perfect! Set in a beautiful little village, only 5 minute drive to Loser ski field where we also hired our ski gear at very reasonable rates.
The chalet is a great size with all mod cons, excellent wifi and very comfy beds. We are a family with teenage boys so space was important.
Ingrid's sister and parents warmly welcomed us when we arrived and helped us to get settled. Really lovely people.
I would highly recommend this place. We loved our stay here.
