Sleeping in Austria
Finding inexpensive accommodations in Austria is simple. You can use the usual suspects, Booking.com or Airbnb.com, but we highly recommend you stay on a farm and use Holidays on the Farm website.
This site is in English, and if you use the map option, you can locate the perfect farm for your home base. Most farms require you to wire the deposit in Euros to their bank account. If your bank is like mine, that can be quite expensive. I email the host and ask if I can send a money order in dollars instead. In our experience, the host has understood and told us to forget the deposit.
I always send my request in German using Google translate. You can convert their reply into English by the same method.
