Homes in Alpine mountains, forests and celebrated cities

If you’re looking for beauty, you’re looking for Austria. The Alps cover much of the west of the country, so homes here have stunning mountain views. Head north east to holiday homes around the River Danube for forests and open, flatter land, or the cities of Vienna, Salzburg, Innsbruck and Graz for luxury and affordable city homes and a change of scene from the great outdoors.

Unique Austrian beauty

Austria holiday homes have their own matchless style and character. Iconic wide, overhanging roofs designed to reduce snow collection and shuttered windows on wooden chalets feel evocative and expressive. Flowered balconies add a delightful touch. Accomodations in the city are spacious and airy, designed for comfort and relaxation. Most have terraces so that you can watch the city people go by and enjoy the picturesque urban space from above, and are designed for cosiness in both the cold of winter and the warmth of summer.

The area and getting around

Explore alpine Austria

Austria is a small, mostly mountainous country right in the heart of Europe. Home to many beautiful lakes with stunning beaches, with mountains, forests and woodlands stretching out beyond. For the most picture-perfect image of the Alps imaginable head for the Tyrol region in the west. To escape the crowds while still being surrounded by gorgeous scenery head to Upper Austria in the north. Austria’s mountains make way in the east to the capital city of Vienna, packed with history and elegance.

Austria’s grand cities of music

Salzburg, another of Austria’s picture-book cities, is located in the centre of Austria and is world famous for being the birthplace of the renowned composer and musician, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Like Vienna, Salzburg is a music lover’s paradise. Linz, Austria’s third city, is in the north west, bestriding the Danube and famous for its Linzer torte – said to be the oldest cake in the world.

Travellers and activities

Austria for ski lovers

Austria’s ski-scene is more casual and offers better value than that of Switzerland and France, while the quality of the runs is just as good. Rightly, the most popular ski resort is St Anton am Arlberg, the preferred destination for intermediate and advanced skiers. For those who are just starting out, consider Mayrhofen for its ready access to easier runs. Mayrhofen is also a snowboarding hub due to its wide, open slopes and thick powder.

Austria for music lovers

Vienna has long enjoyed the reputation as being the City of Music, and every day it plays host to somewhere between 15 and 35 classical music events. The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra has performed in Wiener Musikverein for the past 150 years. With an incredible seven concert halls, the most prestigious events take place in the Golden Hall. Incredible acoustics are to be found at the St Charles Borromeo Church, one of Vienna’s most beautiful churches. While Salzburg naturally offers a wide range of Mozart related concerts, you’ll also find a wide daily offering of multiple musical styles, in locations varying from small churches to huge, elaborate concert halls.

Vienna is consistently rated as the most liveable city in the world!
