A villa in Vorarlberg is the ideal base for a week or two of hiking, skiing and discovery. The tourists here appreciate the variety which is offered to them when they book holiday cottages and apartments in Vorarlberg, as the landscape in Austria is so unique. Situated in a top central location in Europe, bordering Bavaria in Germany as well as Eastern Switzerland, accommodation in this region is also not far from the similar regions of The Dolomites and the stunning Lake Como in Italy. The shores of Lake Constance are found within the gentle, beautiful green hills backed onto mountain peaks where you could find your ideal chalet or apartment in Vorarlberg. Even more magnificent mountains and lakes can, however, be found in the neighbouring country of Switzerland, for example in the superb region of the Bernese highlands or in picturesque Central Switzerland.
Take part in the Bregenz Festival
A special bonus for guests staying for a week or so in a holiday home or villa in Vorarlberg is the inclusive card that is available for your stay. This grants free admissions to attractions and swimming pools, and a reduced price for buses, trains and museums. Many people think that the ideal time to come to Vorarlberg is during the winter, but it can be visited all year round. In fact, the annual spectacular, the Bregenz Festival, takes place each Summer in July and August. Book yourself a private holiday rental property here and you can view wonderful opera performances on the biggest stage in the world! There is also the Schubert festival in the mountain village of Schwarzenberg, where there are many events like chamber music concerts, guest appearances, readings, and singing and piano recitals. The festival takes place between June and September, making this too a popular time to rent a cosy holiday home or apartment in Vorarlberg. Vorarlberg houses the renowned Ski Arlberg region - skiing fans might also want to view our apartments and chalets to rent in Lech am Arlberg, Stuben am Arlberg, and accommodation in St Anton am Arlberg during the colder months, where the conditions for skiing are just right.
Visit remarkable castles during your holiday in Vorarlberg
As you travel through the Austrian mountains and the Montafon valley, some notable sights of interest that this region offers include the Roman-Catholic Basilica Rankweil; the Wettingen-Mehrerau Abbey, which was run by Benedictine monks and is now a beautiful boarding school, a farm and a popular destination for holidaymakers to look for lettings; and the Shadow Castle, a castle museum offering a look back into life in the 16th Century. All of this, and of course more, is to be discovered when you rent apartments in Vorarlberg to explore this lovely area, whatever type of holiday you're in search, whether with family or friends, in summer or winter.
