Visit the land of Mozart for your next holiday. Basing yourself in a cottage or holiday house for your holiday in Austria allows direct access to a range of activities that, despite Austrias relatively small size, will provide a load of opportunities for a memorable and entertaining trip.
Whether its the height of summer or the depths of winter, a holiday house in Tirol is the perfect choice for a week of majestic Alpine scenery, lively outdoor pursuits and afternoons spent in cosy cafes.
For those who prefer to explore city life, taking a holiday house, cottage or apartment in either Vienna or Salzburg will place a wonderfully diverse range of culture and history right on your doorstep. You dont even have to stay right in the middle perhaps a villa or chalet in a nearby town and commuting in will provide greater flexibility, and the range of holiday houses may be broader and more suitable for your needs. Vienna is rightly known for its musical and architectural heritage and is also small enough to be accessible with ease so why not take in a city bus tour during the day, and combine this with a concert in the evening before retiring to your castle for the night? Although some would say that Vienna is deserving of a longer stay as it's a simply stunning city. Visitors to Salzburg can also view Mozarts birthplace or even take a ride in the railway up to Hohensalzburg Fortress which overlooks the city. Famously the Sound of Music was filmed in and around Salzburg as well there is a tour which covers the major landmarks! For those of a more outdoor persuasion, a self catering chalet holiday house in the mountainous Alps region in either winter or summer allow myriad opportunities for excitement. The skiing is world famous particularly in such resorts as Kitzbuhel and Innsbruck and if that does not appeal then there are still hiking, mountaineering and other activities which provide mountain air and a healthy lifestyle. Staying in a holiday house during the Summer may discount most skiing, but the green pastures and blue skies make mountain biking, walking and horse-riding not to mention other sports such as tennis and golf all the more picturesque and no further from your chalet... All in all, Austria provides a wide range of activities for any visitor and with them all relatively close and accessible what better way to explore them than from your own rented holiday house...?
