Although both of us are from England, we first met in Austria whilst working in the travel industry (quite a few years ago!) We had a great time as we led guided tours around the Salzkammergut (Lake District area) for English tourists, who delighted in the views, lakes and mountains and lakeside villages.
For a number of years since that time, other jobs (including the police, secretarial work and yoga teaching) have kept us busy in England – but we kept on returning for holidays to Austria, mostly for cycling, walking and skiing, and to enjoy the clean air, the peace and space.
So in the summer of 2013, we decided to return to the country that brought us together and we purchased a former farmhouse / B&B in the rural village of Obertraun, which lies on the shores of the impressive Lake Hallstatt.
Like many people, we were attracted by the great mountain scenery, peaceful location, open spaces as well as the lakes, nearby. Even though the location is delightfully rural – it also has excellent transport connections and so many opportunities for outdoor activities for guests (as well as ourselves!) to enjoy.
The original property has been renovated and restored by local people from the village and neighbouring villages – and Landhaus Lilly B&B is now ready to welcome you. Let us know how we can help you make the most of your stay in Austria! Liz and Paul
