We stayed a Haus Patricia for one week in January 2013, and we booked the 2-bedroom flat for 4 adults and 2 toddlers. The flat was great, very clean and equipped with everything we needed. The tv had sky tv on it, and there was a dvd player and a selection of dvds for the kids and movies for us. There was everything we needed in the kitchen, and plenty of bed linen and so on. My favourite bit was the fireplace, we had log fires every night, and what with the snow outside, it was just... (read more)

What can we say about Haus Patricia than its the best holiday place to stay. They are fantastic in making our holiday so enjoyable. Nothing is too much for them and their kindness to us excels beyond hospitality anywhere else. The apartment was so pleasant and comfortable and pretty views both back and front. We have spent a week in paradise and we will be back. Thank you Amanda and Richard for everything you did for us. We missed seeing Amanda as she went on holiday a few days after we came. (read more)

We found Haus Patricia, Lofer, via the internet earlier this year and can vouch that all the information given on their website is correct. Transfer from Salzburg Airport by Richard was very efficient. Views from balcony second to none! The weather for our stay was mixed (rain and sun) but we were busy everyday. We only stayed for a week and hope to return for longer next time. Amanda and Richard are great hosts. Breakfast was brilliant, and tea, coffee etc were avaiable at any time during... (read more)

We are returning for our 3rd successive year for more skiing. With 3 children this snow resort is perfect for them. We encouraged friends to book their last year with us and we are both delighted to say that Richard and Amanda are great hosts. Nothing is too much trouble and the location is spot on. Can't decide whether i prefer winters or summers here - they are both excellent in their own right !. Strongly reccommend staying here and some great restaurants and activities for all. (read more)

Haus Patricia, Lofer is second to none. The accommodation views from the balcony would seal it for us but then the owners go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable, happy, welcome and informed - without being intrusive, all your needs can be met. We have been 3 years in a row now (a first for us as previously never returned to a holiday destination more than once) and we are just preparing to look at the flights coming out for the Summer of 2010. We are addicted - it has everything we... (read more)

I cannot begin to tell you how much we enjoyed our eleven day stay at Haus Patricia. We were met at the airport by our host whose welcoming and friendly manner set our holiday off on the right foot. When we arrived at Haus Patricia we were greeted with a tray of refreshments and a warm smile.
The first thing to say is that the view from our room and balcony of the mountain range overlooking Lofer was staggering, the house and gardens were clean, well maintained and comfortable. The hosts... (read more)

We stayed in Summer (no snow) not for skiing. We where blown away by the beauty of Lofer and the surrounding area without snow. The outdoor village pool was fantastic & our 3 year old son loved the shallow paddling pools, playground, sandpit & grass areas around the pool. We loved the slide. The views around the pool are amazing. People in the village where friendly & it was nice to be amongst locals rather than lots of tourists, there was even a village evening festival where we felt most... (read more)

Great skiing, ideal for families, to learn and for the intermediates that don't want the "go for it" hard skiing holiday. Only 40 mins from the airport so even a weekend visit gets you a good ski refresher! Wonderful walking/biking every day a different route. Cheaper than most ski resorts, unspoilt and friendly, no crowds at the lifts. Not for the party goers! No 24hrs bars. No casino. IS THIS A BAD THING!!! Great holiday resort Summer and Winter. Central to everywhere and great bus services. (read more)

We were on our own here at the Haus Patricia for a couple of days after the other guests had left and felt as if we were somehow an inconvenience - in fact, so much so, that we left 2 days early because we felt quite uncomfortable.
During our first few days (when there were other guests) we had a good selection of breads provided at breakfast, yet when we were on our own this dwindled down to some bread rolls (Semmels). These are fine, but you can't put them in the toaster!
Overall, we... (read more)

Great value flights from Manchester with low cost airline.
Highlight was a horse drawn sleigh drive. (read more)
