The quaint 400-year old farmhouse is located above St. Johann in the Pongau and can be accessed via a curvy, private, asphalted mountain road. Once arrived at the farm of the owners, you can expect a warm welcome and a guided tour through the holiday home.
A children’s playground, an herb garden, a beautiful spacious terrace and the popular Berglift sauna (former lift terminus hut) are available to Almliesl guests. The sunburnt old wooden façade, creaking floors and farmhouse utensils from bygone times remind of life in the olden days. The individual rooms have been lovingly renovated and furnished with an eye for detail. The high-quality kitchen in a style typical for the region with an old wood-fired stove and the quaint living room with plenty of wood are perfect for cooking sessions and games evenings with the family or with friends. BBQs are a must on the spacious terrace with panoramic view. Here, relaxing evenings can be enjoyed until late.
The owner has a wealth of knowledge about organic products and sells her homemade treats. The farm animals look forward to the children and are waiting for lots of cuddles.
Hiking and mountain bike tours start directly at the front door in summer. Mr Gschwandner senior is the mountaineer in the farmer’s family – he might even give you some tips about his favourite viewpoints or the best places for picking wild mushrooms and berries.
In winter is the mountain farm the perfect starting point for ski tourers and snowshoe hikers. Tobogganing fans can use the private downhill run into the valley and can arrange to be picked up again by the owner later on. The family ski resort of St. Johann, the Hahnbaum lifts (approx. 5 km away) beckon with exciting specials and a free of charge practicing lift. The famous Alpendorf ski resort of Sportwelt Amadé is only 8 km away.
Tip: The educational tree trail in the Alpendorf: All conifer and deciduous trees native to Austria have been presented here along a trail in the Alpendorf since 2010. The individual types of trees are presented and extensively described. Free admission!!
