Set in an idyllic summer location our home Chalet Gove provides a mix of modern and traditional accommodation and delicious homemade food in a warm and cosy atmosphere. We are here to provide as much help and organisation as you require, just step inside and relax. Step outside and you have access to walks and bike trails for all abilities direct from our door and a vast array of other activities available just 10 minutes down the road. Here in the sunniest part of Austria you can enjoy an afternoon or evening sitting at one of the bars and restaurants surrounding the town square and enjoy a traditional musical event.
Please see our website chaletgove.co.uk for full details and pictures; we also have detailed reviews on tripadvisor.
Our village Lessach is an hour and a half away from Salzburg in the Lungau region at the centre of the largest UNESCO Biosphere reserve in Austria; an area of original habitat, high biodiversity, distinctive traditions and a model region for sustainable development. You can step back in time and get really close to nature here.
All the walks, hikes, cycle paths, mountain bike routes are clearly marked and graded. We can provide maps, GPS routes and information and guiding. Please see out website for our ‘walking group holiday’ offers.
We will organise any activities and equipment hire for you. Every guest in the summer also receives a complimentary Lungau card when staying with us which provides free or discounted entry to many of the activities and events in the region.
Our summer price includes breakfast, afternoon cake, 3 course evening meal with wine on 4 nights (there are many lovely places to eat out at on the other 3 evenings).
A bit about us...we are an English couple Alan and Maria Gove who moved out here nearly 4 years ago buying and renovating a large farm house in the centre of our very pretty village of Lessach in this unique area of Austria little know to the British. Straight from our doorstep we have access to beautiful valleys, high mountain peaks, magical mountain Lakes, crystal clear streams, gushing waterfalls as well as alpine meadows full of wild flowers and an amazing variety of butterflies along with stunning views wherever you go. Add to that alpine mountain huts serving wonderful local produce even at 2000m and the opportunity to experience the culture and many traditions of the area, the friendliest of people, clear air, clean water, lots of sunshine and you will see why we choose to live here and would love to share it with you.
