Property Description

Chalet Gove is our converted farmhouse nestled in the pretty Lessach valley in the Lungau region of Salzburg, Austria. Providing much more than the traditional catered 'Chalet Experience' we (Alan & Maria Gove) are here to tailor your winter or summer holiday to your needs and really look after you, giving as much help and advice as you require. With a mix of traditional and modern features Chalet Gove provides space, comfort and a relaxing, real ‘home from home’ feel inside and a sunny garden with wonderful views outside. It really is beautiful here and the area is steeped in tradition and a sustainable way of living, recognised in 2012 by UNESCO when they awarded the area Biosphere park status.

In winter - we have access to four fantastic ski/board areas with tree lined, un-crowded slopes, superb mountain bars and restaurants with non-inflated prices, all covered under the Lungo ski pass. With its unique positioning the Lungo ski region in Salzburgerland guarantees you snow and excellent skiing from the end of November through to the start of May. All slopes are on pastureland requiring less depth of snow and with fewer people in the slopes, it lasts a lot longer. A wide variety of slopes and different areas to ski provides something for all abilities and a choice depending on weather conditions. Non-skiers are also well catered for with lovely snowy walks, swimming pools, spas and places to visit, plus it is easy to meet up with skiers for lunch on the slopes.

In summer - step out the door and breathe in the fresh clear air and decide what to do; you are at the start of numerous walks, hikes, cycle or mountain bike rides. A few minutes down the road and a whole range of activities are available to you, be it white water rafting, horse riding, golf, outdoor activity centres, swimming pools, spas, museums or castles to name just a few and all guests staying with us receive a free Lungau card entitling them to free or discounted entrance to all of them.

Please see our website for more information and link to Tripadvisor for detailed guest reviews – we are very pleased to have been rated 'Excellent' every year since we opened in 2011.
