Comments about this property
White Villa is a very bright, comfortable and spacious flat in a lovely, quiet, residential area of Baden. It is situated close to the woods, with its many walking trails, and to the center of town. It has a lovely large covered terrace where we enjoyed breakfast and an evening glass of wine. We would love to have stayed longer - and will definitely be back!
Tips for other travellers
Baden has everything! It is a beautiful town, rich in history, architecture, culture and culinary offerings. Vienna is very accessible for day trips or an evening out. Schoenbrunn Palace is a 30 min car ride and the tram from the center of Baden to the Vienna Opera House takes an hour and goes every 15 min. If you like to walk, the woods near the flat are full of trails (get free maps from the Tourist Info office). We enjoyed local wine and cuisine at the wine houses (Heurigen) in Baden and neighbouring Sooss and at several restaurants in the town. (Stay away from Cafe Central in the center of town - our only bad experience eating out.) If you like to walk - go to the historic Rudolfshof on the hill overlooking Baden for lunch - just head up the hill from the flat to the woods and turn right at the main path. (The way is marked.)Since we had children with us and hot weather, we also enjoyed a couple of days at the amazing public pool with its beach, sulfur spa water and water slides. (It is also within walking distance.)

Note: The property lies approximately 15 minutes walk downhill to the town centre. To avoid an uphill walk back, a taxi or rental car is recommended. There are plenty of taxi ranks in the town centre and the short journey costs around £3-£4.

"I don't think anyone would believe this is Austria. Without wanting to devalue such icons as Mozart, Strauss, schnitzels and Alps, the characteristics of this region could not be a further contrast from those stereo-typical pre-conceptions. We were gob-smacked.
"I'd recommend anyone, before you rush off to another place you've seen a million times, to just consider discovering something new and amazing like Baden, Austria, it's really got everything."

White Villa is a very bright, comfortable and spacious flat in a lovely, quiet, residential area of Baden. It is situated close to the woods, with its many walking trails, and to the center of town. It has a lovely large covered terrace where we enjoyed breakfast and an evening glass of wine. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the neighborhood extremely quite - so a good sleep is guaranteed!
We are a family of 4 (children ages 9 and 13) and over the course of our four week stay my mother (age 70), my 16 year old niece and some friends (another family of 4) stayed with us for part of this time. The owners met us to hand over the keys and show us around. They were very accommodating and made a large, extra room and bathroom available so we could sleep 8 for the one week that we needed this...

Arriving at Vienna International Aiport (1 hour by train).
From Vienna airport, take a slope or a lift down one floor to the main station. Get straight onto a CAT train (every 15 minutes, buy ticket on train) which takes you directly into Wien Landstrasse indoor station. Follow the signs on foot to the "S Bahn" and take a fast train directly to Baden (every 30 minutes or so).One point is to buy this ticket BEFORE you board the train. Automatic machines are in the main station and are in English. Announcements are also in Englsh.
The trip takes around 30 minutes from there to Baden. Once there, take a taxi to Gamingerstrasse for around €5.00
Alternatively, we recommend a rental car from www.atlaschoice.com. We have very good experiences with them and all the companies they use. We have never had anyone falsely charged for extra damage found on the car and there are some real bargain rates and often good free upgrades on collection. It is motorway all the way from Vienna Airport to Baden and Gamingerstrasse is easy to find with our directions.
Bratislava International (Slovakia - superb new airport) Journey time to Baden approx 1 (picturesque) hr by rental car.
Linz International (Approx 2 hrs by high speed train plus local shuttle)
Salzburg International (Same as Linz but add an hour for longer high speed train service).
