Description of the Zell Am See Schüttdorf vacation villa rental
Our castle farm is in a secluded location with a stunning view of the Hohen Tauern. Our newly renovated, spacious facilities in the castle invite you to relax. The traditional atmosphere of our beautiful castle, the rooms with Swiss Stone pine will enchant you. Ideal for small to larger groups and families. Whether safe catering, breakfast buffet or a 3-course menu - everything is possible. Our own products include milk, eggs, meat. The panorama terrace and the garden with a mountain fountain offer you relaxation.

New: Relax and enjoy the warmth in our two outside "Sauna Barrels", our infrared-sauna for 4 persons or our classical Finnish sauna for 10 persons.

Take a break from the daily routine in our modern wellness-area.

Our relaxation room and terrace are fitted with sunloungers and are directly nearby the outside Sauna facilities.

The large picture window offers a great view of the "Hohe Tauern" National Park.

And afterwards? Cool down in the snow? Or enjoy our relaxation room with a book on one of our loungers made out of massive natural wood?

A sunbath on our terrace is tempting during sunny weather. A view of the astonishing mountains of the National Park "Hohe Tauern" is guaranteed by our large picture windows.

And maybe enjoy a refreshing glass of spring water from the mountains?

This - and more - awaits you!

Enjoy the grilling evenings in our traditional wooden gazebo and in winter in our Grillhouse (finnish Grillikota)...

A great playground with a tree house, a lot of animals to pet (goats, rabbits, cows, our dog Tina, pigs, chicken), horse riding on our horse Simone, a lot of space to play and daily programs in the stable like feeding animals, looking for eggs - this offers action for children. Weekly guided hikes to the Saalhof alp pasture are popular among our guests.

holiday on a farm: Altogether 80 cattle and calves, 20 of which are milk cows, pigs, our goats Loisi with her fawn, chicken, our rabbits, our horse Simone, cats and our dog Tina play on our farm. Our rabbits Flecki and Punkti look forwarding to being pet and they look forward to fresh dandelions. At least once a week (as desired), we have horse riding for children with professional guides on our well behaved horse Simone. For good riders, you can go riding on our path networks at all times! During the summer, the cows come to the stable around 5:00 PM for milking and feeding; the farmers like it when people help and if they bring hay into the stable (for goats, rabbits, cows and the horse Simone) or feeding the calves... Right on arrival, there is a guide through the farm and stable with a lot of opportunities to get to know people and animals.

Our alpine pasture: Once a week from May to October, we have an excursion to our alpine pasture with about a 1-hour hike to the upper pasture at 1700 m: 100 cattle and 10 horses graze here. It is particularly nice during the mountain spring during the rose blooming time in May and June! A lot of mushrooms and 'Schwammerl' can be found here starting in August and above all, during the Indian Summer in September and October! The farmer Kathrin would be happy to show you a few places! Those who want to dive into the original life of the farmers 200 years ago and want to live in harmony with nature for a little bit will feel comfortable in the atmosphere of the upper alpine pasture next to the kettle and butter churner. Visiting the upper pasture allows for a thrilling trip in time to the past

Our garden terrace and playground: : The garden area consists of a terrace, mountain fountain, fountain hutch with spring water and gazebo, grill. Our well-kept garden area, the play lawn and the playground with a tree house, bridge, 2 swings, 1 slide, a climbing tree, a basketball basket and a sandbox is completely enclosed. Thus, parents can sunbathe or read a book without any worries... The highlight is our lying climbing tree: in the front with the head of the dragon from the

never-ending Story and in the back a dragon tail! The dragon is great to ride! The beautiful gazebo invites you to have cosy grill nights during nice summer evenings. A grill is available. Once a week, every Monday, there is a grill night included in the half board and also other people (self-caterers) can put something on Hermann's grill (our farmer)!

Area Information
Bathing fun in the crystal clear waters of Lake Zell in Austria

The crystal clear lake Zell counts among the most beautiful lakes of the county of Salzburg. You will experience the superb water quality during your swimming holidays in Zell am See.

Surrounded by mighty mountains up to 3,000 metres (9842 feet) in height and lush green pastures lies the 4 kilometre (2.5 Miles) long and 1.3 kilometre (0.8 Miles) wide Lake Zell. Indulge in bathing and enjoy the marvellous view of the mountains during your swimming holidays in Zell am See in Austria. Watch the waters of the lake at an altitude of 758 metres (2,500 feet) above sea level sparkle in the sun. Bathing in the public swimming area at Zell am See - which means "Zell at the lake" - is tremendous fun.

Lake Zell. Admission to the Maishofen beach is, incidentally, totally free.

In winter skiing is very popular - 3 ski resorts with totally 450 km of ski slopes are within 5-15 minutes.

- You reach the Schmittenhöhe within 5 minutes. The free shuttle bus stops just 200 metres (220 yards) from Castle Saalhof. The Schmittenhöhe Mountain in Zell am See has 77 kilometres (48 miles) of runs to offer (25 km or 15.5 miles of these are rated as difficult) as well as a mogul piste and a speed measuring stretch.

- Free ski shuttle bus to Saalbach-Hinterglemm: Powder snow and fun on the slopes - perfectly groomed pistes throughout the winter! The most up-to date snow-making equipment definitely guarantees good snow conditions during the winter season in Skicircus Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang, just 10 km (6.2 Miles) away. At your disposal are 200 km (124 Miles) of runs suitable for beginners, but also demanding pistes, with downhill runs leading straight to the resort. Extra wide carving pistes, 40 cosy huts, 55 comfortable cable-cars and lifts as well as numerous 'hot spots' such as mogul pistes, racing courses for giant slalom and carving make your day's skiing in Saalbach Hinterglemm an experience you will never forget.

- The Kitzsteinhorn Glacier: Kitzsteinhorn
You will always get a glimpse of it - no matter where you are!

Visit the Kitzsteinhorn for a great ski day on a glacier only 15 minutes from Saalhof Castle.
Tip: great even on a warm day in March or April as you will still find powder snow on the glacier at an altitude of 3000 metres (9,842 feet). The runs - sweeping, spectacular and covered metre deep in natural snow. Discover the intense feeling of freedom at over 3,000 metres above sea level - and that throughout the entire year (expect August).
