We have stayed at this accommodation twice in Ski season and are looking forwards to another visit very soon. Keith and Manu are fantastic hosts and can't do enough for you. We have stayed in the farm house and the apartment and both were great. There are a variety of slopes to suit all abilities and lots of places to... More

I have just returned from a holiday with uphill downhill biking. We were a party of 6 couples, 6 men mountain biking and 6 women who wanted to walk, sightsee, horse ride and relax. Keith and Manu pandered to our every need! nothing was too much trouble? The men thought the biking was brilliant as Keith catered for all levels... More

As intermediate XC mountain bikers with some previous Alps experience, we were looking for a challenge in new territory, and Austria was unknown to both of us. Some of the riding turned out to be very technical (tree roots - gotta love em!) and certainly the hardest stuff we've ever tackled. However, it was also quite varied and - for... More

My wife and I came over from the U.S. to ride mtn bikes for a week. Spent a solid 6 days of riding there. Keith and his family are wonderful hosts. The food was all homemade and delicious. Spent four very solid days of riding with Keith. He was a great guide and went out of his way to help... More

I was invited by some friends to ski with them in Austria. We were picked up by Keith who was an excellent host. The farm was lovely and I really like the rural traditional style. Rooms are large, en-suit, good showers, plenty of hot water. Towels were provided. Breakfasts alternated between eggs and bacon to Austrian. Wifi was available and... More

I love good food and after a long day of biking, Keith and I arrived back to the farm and he let me know dinner would be ready in a few. I didn't expect that the mountain biking and the food could both be fantastic. I mean, we are in the middle of farming country, I was expecting something quick... More

Thanks for the review Zach! I feel that I should mention, even though it was tricky trail with some wicked descents, it is actually part of the UCI World Marathon Championships. Takes place 29th-30th June 2013. We often go to the downhill course in Leogang. Next time you are over we'll hit that trail as well! More

All booked off the net, I'm a single dad with two lads 20/14 needed something more than a hot beach holiday. This delivered in spades, Keith provided all the guiding and took us all over the place. Lifts up the mountain and tracks down through the forests even met some friendly Austrian cows. Liked the Gastofs for lunch with just... More

The service that Keith and Manu provide is simply worldclass Nothing was ever to much trouble. The apartment is large, clean and airy with great views of the Wilder Kaiser - the only negative is the noise from the nearby road. We chose a a bed and breakfast package and the breakfast was served when we wanted it. This is... More

Keith & Manu were really friendly and welcoming when we first arrived and this carried on throughout the week that we stayed with them. The apartment was large, with a clean, large and airy bedroom that had truly beautiful views of the Wilder Kaiser and the farm's awesome log store. There was an added bonus of spending an evening watching... More

We booked with Up and Downhill over the internet on the basis of the home-cooked food and the availability of diverse riding. We arrived later than we had said after an 10 hour drive from Calais and were still warmly greeted by Keith and made to feel immediately at home. Minutes later a three course meal was produced after which... More
