  • So what's it like?

    Scheffau, a name which derives from the German "schiefe Au", or steep meadow, is an idyllic village set on the hillside beneath the Wilder Kaiser mountain range. With its traditional chalet-style houses winding up the mountainside and a charming village centre with cafés, bars and restaurants, this is a wonderful base from which to explore the Tirol. During the summer months there are regular evening festivals when the centre comes alive with traditional music, craft and food stalls.

Explore what Scheffau and the surrounding area has to offer and the package includes excursions to Salzburg, Berchtesgaden and Krimml Waterfall.

    With all the various national tourist boards applying widely varying criteria to hotel ratings, the whole question of international hotel grades has become confused. We have therefore applied our own 'rating', representing the general standards of that country in order that fairer comparisons can be made.

    Please note: rating may differ from the official star rating of the local tourist board. Our classifications take into account not only the basic facilities, but also the location, leisure facilities, general character and atmosphere of the hotel, as well as customer feedback. Chalet ratings give comparisons with other chalets but do not provide like for like comparisons with the ratings of full service hotels.
