A very special holiday!

This holiday - Lake & Mountains of Austria - is a very special holiday. St Gilgen is set in heart of the truly spectacular scenery of the Salzkammergut, Austrian lake district. The included and optional excursions give you an insight of the wonderful and varied scenery of this area. Don't miss the views from the Schafberg mountain - you really do feel that you are 'on top of the world'! If you are lucky enough to have Steve as your driver, you will find that he is experienced and really knowledgable of this area. For this holiday, you have the choice of two hotels - we have stayed in both. The Hotel Zur Post rooms are of a higher quality and comfort, but hotel does not have the same homely feel as a smaller hotel. The hotel is set within the village, with easy access to the town and lakeside area. It is easy to understand why so many people return to St Gilgen for this holiday again and again - it really is very special!

You need to consider which is more important to you....! The Christabauer rooms are very basic, but the hotel staff are friendly and welcoming, whilst the Hotel Zur Post rooms are of a higher quality and comfort, but hotel does not have the same homely feel...Both hotels are set within the village, with easy access to the town and lakeside area.It is easy to understand why so many people return to St Gilgen for this holiday again and again - it really is very special!
