We loved the apartment, the location, and just about everything about our stay. The apartment is ample; comfortable, well appointed and affords you great views. The area is peaceful and absolutely beautiful.
Communication with the owner and their local agent was excellent. While we were blessed with amazingly beautiful weather, some places were closed due to it being off season. We are totally in love with the region and hope to return to experience some more. We will definitely choose this apartment again and would highly recommend to others.
This beautiful apartment was situated in the centre of the lovely village of St Gilgen, close to restaurants ( there is a fab one almost next door), supermarket, lake, and bus stops. In summer the ferries provide transport on the lake, but in winter there is still a good bus service and we have never seen the need for a car. It is easy to travel from Salzburg Airport using two buses. This was our third visit to St Gilgen, but our first in winter, and our first to this apartment. This was by far the best apartment and the one we would choose when returning. It was warm, with lots of hot water, and a bath with shower over. The kitchen facilities were brilliant and I could have been far more adventurous in preparing meals.
Communication when booking was easy, and we were met and shown round the apartment on arrival.
Would highly recommend taking a holiday here, at any time of year.
Lovely apartment, location great, near to lake, restaurants. Good key collection, Amenities good and everything in good condition. St Gilgen is a lovely town in a wonderful setting with its own cable car and good water ferry connections.
Karina very kindly met us at the bus stop and took us to the apartment at some inconvenience to herself for which we were very grateful.
Sankt Gilgen Village Apartment is delightful. It is a first floor apartment in an excellent position situated in the centre of the village, perfect for exploring the area. There is a balcony which offers wonderful mountain views with the Schafberg taking a dominant centre stage. The accommodation is spotless with a large lounge and a door leading directly onto the balcony. The bathroom has both a bath and a shower and the two bedrooms also have direct access to the balcony with plenty of wardrobe space. The kitchen is compact and well facilitated with a window which looks out to the mountains.
The wonderful Wolfgangsee is a short walk from the apartment and the regular Hop on Hop Off boat trips take you to places which are ideal for walks, cycling and visits to picturesque villages especially St Wolfgang which is a mere 35 mins away. Do stop off at the Schafbergbahn and take the cog railway to the top of the mountain. Awesome! For €20 each for the round boat trip it's a bargain.
The bus and train links to other parts of the Salzgammergut are excellent and reliable. Hallstatt is a must visit. To get there, take the bus from St Gilgen to Bad Ischl Bahnhof, a train to Hallstatt station then a ferry will take you towards the mountain hugging village.
Sankt Gilgen itself is clean, quiet and and has several restaurants which are all of a high standard and reasonably priced. You must try the salads... yes salads! They are tastier than you can imagine.
The combination of this beautiful location and excellent accommodation makes for a perfect holiday in the Salzkammergut area, we cannot recommend it highly enough.

We spent a lovely week in this very comfortable apartment in St Gilgen. It was very quiet and ideally situated. It lived up to its description. We would definitely go again.
