Having a break in Austria was a wonderful change from daily life. The hotel was located between two small towns in a valley with stunning views of the surrounding mountains. A 20 minute cycle ride along an easy cycle route to the south of the hotel made for a great day out, with lunch at a café by the lake shore. A 20 minute cycle ride north of the hotel took me to the base of a mountain where I hiked up to 2000m. The views were breath taking and the countryside so peaceful.
A self-catering hotel would normally be great. However, arriving at the hotel after 1800 on a Saturday, when shops close in Austria, was not so useful. Shops are also shut on a Sunday and the Monday that I was there was a Bank Holiday, so again no shops. This made buying food a little difficult until Tuesday.
The weather was fantastic for a few of the days, with evening thunderstorms. A couple of the days it rained all day, but that allowed for some rest between long bike rides and hikes.
I hope that helps, thank you again, it was a wonderful surprise.
