Goldegg, Salzburg (state), Austria

The Seehof connects. Ancient wall and woodwork with modern art and furnishings. Peasant tradition with lightning-fast discussions about art and politics. Excellent gastronomy with totally unpretentious hospitality and relaxed feeling at home.

There are children of all ages running through the stairs without being hurriedly. In front of the fireplace, which the guests refuel themselves like at home, cultivated gentlemen sit and indulge in the picture books everywhere. On the stairs, a couple in white bathrobes climb up to the sauna, while other guests lead their dogs down for a walk around the lake, and in the bar, a friend of the house sits for a cup of Sacher cake for coffee.

The staff is friendly but highly professional, the food is a revelation full of imagination and details. And in the evening, at the bar, in addition to a large selection of not-so-common waters, there are lively conversations and witty exchanges between former strangers, while the children in all the differently decorated rooms with red cheeks have long dreamed of the adventures of the past day.

ArchitectureThe oldest walls of the house are from 1727. For generations, the house is family owned and although there is now a lift and modern bathrooms, everything here is just as homely and original, as you would expect for your vacation. A special feature are the different and partly equipped by designers and artists rooms and the juxtaposition of traditional furniture next to very different modern pieces and a lot of bold modern art on the walls.

FoodIn the excellent kitchen of the Seehof, only products from a distance of up to 120 kilometers are processed. But many of them come from much closer, directly from above the road. There lies the former "herb garden" which has meanwhile blossomed into a real small field. The vegetables grown here are processed from head to toe to delicious refinements and in hedonistic menu creations. According to good old farming tradition, a part of it is also canned and stored cabbage and root vegetables in potholes, so even in winter own vegetables are available. And the farmer's bread is baked every day in the wood-burning oven. Just as the vegetables are processed as much as possible, so the animal here is not only the elite fillets on the plate but often and the guts.

In the cosmos of the Seehof there is room for very different characters and individuals. For many years, people with migration and escape backgrounds have been trained here in various areas of gastronomy.
