Rent a property long-term in Austria to enjoy all four seasons!

Warm in the Spring, Hot in the Summer, Golden in the Autumn and White in the Winter! That is Austria and it’s four seasons, each one special in it’s own way. The best way to enjoy Austria at it's best is to experience more than one season...and if possible stay for all four seasons!

If you are coming to work, taking a gap year or are considering to purchase a property in Austria and would like to try living in the country... then renting for a few months to a year is a good way to get the feel of an area. We have apartments and houses available for rent in many areas of Austria. These tend to be Holiday properties, because it is these properties that are more readily available as opposed to the rental housing market where the rental contract terms are 3 year and over. But if you want a property for 3 years or more we have these also.

We have put a selection of these Austrian properties in our long term renting section, but not all of the available rental properties are on this page. This is because properties can rent quite quickly, so it is best to check with us what properties we have available at any particular time.

01. Long lets - Wolfgangsee

There is also demand from teachers arriving at the International school at St Gilgen and neeing a few months to get settled.

Obviously it is much cheaper to rent on this basis, as opposed to the 1- 2 week holiday in the high seasons.

The Mozart village of St Gilgen is at the top end of Lake Wolfgang. It is famous for it's Mozart connection and visitors come from all over the world to see the birthplace of Mozart's mother. Also his sister was married in the local church and had her wedding breakfast at the Hotel Zurpost, in the village square.

But besides it's famous characters, St Gilgen is a good base for holidays at any time. Situated on the lakeside, it boasts it's own ski mountain, the Zwolferhorn. Very fast downhill ski-ing,..if you are at least an intermediate. For families there is the local Postalm ski area only 25 minutes or 45mins with the free local ski buses.

Then there is the popular village of St Wolfgang, renowned for it's famous Weisses Roessel Hotel and Scalaria event centre.

Long Term Holiday Rentals - Austria

Information on costs, commissions and legal requirements.

Coming to work or live in Austria..... need a property for a few months while you find long term rental...or maybe you would like to just take a sabbatical or time out for a few months. We have owners with properties near to Salzburg, Bad Ischl, Vienna or Nassfeld in Carinthia, Southern Austria?

Many of our owners apartments and houses are available for longer Holiday lets. These can be from one month to six months.

There is also the possibility to rent from 1-3 years, but this comes under a different system than holiday renting. Holiday renting does not give any long term guarantee of tenancy, it is simply a long term fixed contract as in booking a holiday, but the costs are cheaper, the longer term you take.

Most apartments are in the Salzkammergut area, and within easy reach of Salzburg. We will though be adding other areas to these pages as we get owners willimg to rent their properties for longer holiday rentals. These will include Graz, Innsbruck and Vienna.

Costs involved to rent.

It is standard that you pay a deposit guarantee for a 1- 3 year rental.  This is normally 3 months rental, depending on length of letting. 

If it is a long holiday rental The deposit can be only one month rental to have as security. Some long Holiday rentals need to be paid in full up front, if only a few months rental period. So they are treated exactly like a holiday booking. It depends on the landlord. The deposit is an amount that is paid by the tenant to the landlord to cover any rent arrears and to cover losses in the case of damages in the existing building. The deposit can be in several forms and is passed to the landlord.

For long rentals of one year plus. It
is possible to pay the landlord a sum of money and to set up a savings account or to provide a bank guarantee. The deposit will earn interest. Interest rates are extremely low at present.. You can also set up a savings account. In this case, you can gain from increases interest rates.

Austria also has a standard long term rental of 3 years plus. These tend to be cheaper and this is the length of time that a landlord would be required to give to the tenant and to honour it as long as the tenant was paying the rent. The tenant must rent for a minimum of 12 months plus on top they must give 3 months notice to the Landlord when leaving. So, in effect a Tenant must pay for 15 months of rental under a 3 year plus agreement.

Tip: If you are taking a 3 year+ term, arrange the lease, and then set up a savings account, but remember that in the event of rent arrears or damage to the property the landlord would be entitled to access this account. But this does allow you to obtain a higher interest income on the deposit. In the case of payment of the deposit in cash, there is no interest payable.

Contract commissions to agents, start on the basis of 1 month rent, as commission. It is down to the agent and many will charge less for finding you the right property and setting up the longer  holiday rentals. The standard fee is now generally one month rental.

For shorter periods it is less. Should you have any queries about this then click here to email us
