Award for Ferienparadies Taxen on the Sun Terrace

The farm holiday portal “” is looking for the most popular holiday homes for the 24th time and for the first time ever an Austrian company can look forward to this title.

Guests are queried about which farms rank highest on a popularity scale through an online rating system. Among the assessed criteria are the furnishings, leisure offers, catering and services on the farm.

Austria’s most popular country house comes this year from our region Salzburg Sun Terrace. The holiday paradise Taxen was able to inspire the guests with extensive service, warm hospitality, comfortable accommodation, authentic everyday farm life for the whole family and much more.

At Maria Hacksteiner, we have informed ourselves about the expenses and efforts that are being made for each individual guest. We are thrilled!

A paradise in nature

Maria tells us that the special feature of the holiday paradise is first of all the family closeness and the proximity to the animals. Especially popular among the children are rabbits and cats.
Getting to know how to deal with the animal, that many guests love. The children and the parents enjoy milking cows, which is possible in the milking parlour without danger.

The farm name contains the word “paradise”, which can be clearly seen on the central sole position on a hill. The location is breathtakingly beautiful, close to the forest and surrounded by mountains… The hosts are cordial and the game paradise makes children’s eyes shine.

Farm holidays as a recipe for success

The special offer for the guests is down-to-earth and simply is “holiday at the farm”. Maria Hacksteiner explains that families in cities often lack the connection to nature and to the farm animals. It is a unique experience to become a farmer. Gotthard shows the guests the loving handling of animals and gives an insight into the daily work. Bringing the cows from the pasture to the barn and then milking them is at the top of the day and must not be missed under any circumstances, Maria says with joy.

In the holiday paradise Of Hacksteiner, guests can look forward to a well-kept farm, with well-equipped holiday apartments and well-heeled hosts. For children there is enough space to play, there are various animals and every morning fresh milk from their own cows, as well as bread rolls from the baker. In winter, young and old can let off steam on their own toboggan run.

What guests appreciate

Mary tells us that the award makes them feel like they are on the right track. She says that year after year they look forward to many regulars, from whom very good friendships have developed.

The guests praised the central location to the sights and excursion destinations. Even in winter, the ideal location in the middle of the Ski amadé – Austria’s greatest skiing pleasure – counts especially.

Farm holiday – this is the simple motto of the Hacksteiner family, which ultimately leads to success. The down-to-earthness and hospitality of Maria and Gotthard inspireadults and children and leaves beautiful holiday memories on the Salzburg Sun Terrace.

Congratulations to the holiday paradise Taxen for the grandiose award to the most popular country house in Austria!
