“We have been in Anna and Klaus place in August 2021 AND we had a wondeful stay in this large, confortable, cosy, very well located house. The house is much bigger than it looks like in the ad ! We enjoyed the amazing view on the Traunkirchen lake from the terrasse. Communciation was very easy before and and during the stay. The area, Salzkammergut, is full of large and beautiful lakes where we enjoyed using Anna and Klaus paddle, and over nautic activities. We really appreciated the numerous possible visits that you can do in a 40 mins drive range as well as for adults and kids (hiking, idillics villages to visit, amazing landscapes, summer toboggan, wonderful Salzbourg...). To be honest we falled in love with Traunkirchen village : a peacefull and beautifull lake side village with a nice restaurant, bar, delicious bakery and butcher. As wine lovers we went to visit the Wachau Valley. At the end of the stay we also enjoyed a 3 nights stay in Vienna leaving our car in the area and going by train. We also met Anna, Klaus, Sophie and Moritz when we went back and had a very nice moment exchanging about our hoildays. They took care of our house and we higly recommand a swap with this pleasant, warm and reliable family. ”
Anna's reviewsAs a host (6)
“This year we stayed at the wonderful and cosy house of Anna, Klaus & Sophie. The house is located on the hills near Traunkirchen and has a beautiful view at the lake Traunsee. It's a big house with a marvelous bathroom and cosy living room; a very comfortable house indeed! We had a swim in the clear water of the lake Traunsee, where you can sunbath, sport & relax. We enjoyed the quietness and made some nice trips in the neighborhood; there are nice villages along the lake and it's possible to make nice walks in the hills. We were invited with Kaffee & Kuchen and they were very helpful in explaining everything around the house! And they did take good care of our house. We strongly recommend this house and family for a house exchange.”
“Our exchange was very straightforward because communication with Anna was so clear and easy. We arranged everything in advance through the website and kept in touch with whatsapp during the house swap. Anna's house is in a perfect location to explore the Salzkammergut region of Austria and beyond. We spent most of our time admiring the fabulous views from the house and also walking and swimming in the crystal clear lakes. Salzburg is an easy 1 hour drive from the house. We lacked for nothing.”
“We had a fantastic two week exchange with Anna and Klaus in the summer of 2013 - a truly unforgettable experience! Their welcoming and cosy house was spacious, clean and very well located. And don't even mention the views from their house and beautiful garden... Wauw!!! You have nature right on your doorstep with beautiful mountains and several lakes with crystal clear water for swimming and there was a great selection of attractions and activities for the whole family nearby. If you haven't experienced Austria during the summer, we recommend that you do! And with Anna and Klaus as your hosts, you'll definitely be in good hands :-) Thank you Anna and Klaus! We hope to see you again :-)”
“We had one of our best house swaps yet at Anna and Klaus\' house in Traunkirchen! Their house is up on a hillside in this little town with a breathtaking view overlooking the valley with the lake Traunsee and mountains around it. The location was awesome, just a few minutes to the beach or the mountains with forest. The location is also a great home base for day trips. We had a different adventure every day to Gmunden, Bad Ischl, Sankt Wolfgang, Dachstein, Salzburg and never drove more than an hour in any direction. We had a lot of fun swiming in the crystal clear lake, enjoying lake cruises, walking in the mountains, visiting the Dachstein icy caves or go up the mountain by cog railway at Sankt Wofgang. We also enjoyed the Mozart\'s opera "Nozze di Figaro" at Salzburg Festspiele and decided to see Wien (250 km by highway). They have a comfortable family home with everything we needed, even more beautiful than the pictures. It\'s very well designed for the climate as there are lots of different places to sit to get sun or shade depending on the weather. The house was very clean at our arriving and all the communication with Anna was really easy. Our house was clean and tidy on our return and we also found some beautiful gifts from our austrian friends :) We could not have asked for a nicer exchange partners and would highly recommend Anna and Klaus for a wonderful swap!

“This year (2011), we have had the pleasure of going to the lovely house of Anna and Klaus. In advance we have had a lot of communication and find both Anna and Klaus very open and easy to talk/write to. They have recommended alot of activities and made it very easy to enjoy our holiday. The house is very spacious, with nice rooms, fantastic view overlooking the valley and the big lake Traunsee. The neighbours are very welcoming and took good care of us and our kids. We find Austria very beautiful and went to see allot. Travelled up the mountains, down the colorful valleys, into the saltmines, went into the cities and out to the countryside. During our stay in the house Anna and Klaus took very good care of our house. We would recommend to "swap" with this lovely family. :) Best wishes Jakob and Julie”
