Summer holidays in the Austrian lakes
Austria Lakes & Mountains Holiday AccommodationHoliday Rentals, Chalets & Apartments to Rent, Holiday Homes
Summer holidays in the Austrian lakes and mountains is an experience you'll never forget. Surrounded by so much natural beauty, its hard not to be impressed by the serenity of this magical landscape.
Deep blue and turquoise lakes with beaches reminescent of the Costa Smeralda in Scardinia, flanked by towering mountains, with the last remains of the winter snow clinging on to the peaks.
Most of Austria's lakes are in the mountainous regions of Salzburg, Tyrol and Carinthia and are very popular tourist destinations as most of the lakes have beaches, swimming and watersports on offer.
If you are visiting the lakes during the winter season, they are all close to the various ski resorts so you can combine a Skiing holiday with the lakes & mountains - the best of both worlds.

Our view on the Austrian lakes
As with all lakes & mountains holidays, the emphasis is on out door activities, relaxing, taking in the clean mountain air and enjoying the natural beauty of the mountains - the Austrian lakes don't dissapoint.
The lakes are great to visit any time of year but if you don't like crowds and queues then avoid the peak summer months and try going in June or early Autumn. Or, if visiting during the ski season, you could combine a visit to the lakes with a few days skiing in one of the nearby ski resorts.
