ULTIMATE TRANQUILLITY AT 1,100M - THE AUSTRIAN ALM

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday chalet in Central Carinthia - Buggl in Bach 3

Cosy, comfortable and well-equipped accommodation for 8

If you're looking for an Austrian style mountain chalet away from it all and with an air of utter tranquillity, then you're looking at the right place! Our house has room enough for up to 8 or 9 adults, with comfortable, cosy accommodation.

The kitchen, though quite small, is cleverly designed: several people can sit on the 'Sitzbank' around the table and keep right out of the way, leaving whoever's cooking to get on with things unhindered. There's a small, traditional wood-burning stove - especially good on those colder days - and an up-to-the-minute Miele oven and hob for everyday use.

The sitting room - with an additional dining space - has an Austrian 'Kachelofen' - a large, wood-fired tiled oven with power enough to warm the whole house through in winter. The room looks southwest and west, with stunning views of the distant Karawanken mountain range. Double doors lead out to the patio, with a large, locally made wooden table and seating for 8 or more, and retractable awning.

We live in Klagenfurt and use our house at Buggl in Bach mainly at the weekends. So we're almost always on hand just 30 km away, if you want to talk about places to visit, good walking routes, the various nearby ski areas and so on. Also, the house is more fully equipped than some 'holiday' accommodation, and you will often find jars of our home-made jam, chutney and so on which you're welcome to use! And if / when you do come into Klagenfurt please feel free to give us a call, if you wish, for a coffee and a chat.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Wir (2 Familien aus Thüringen) haben in eurem wunderschönen Ferienhaus 14 sehr erholsame Tage verbracht.Die Lage ist wirklich traumhaft - jeden Morgen Frühstück im Freien mit Blick in die Berge. Vom Haus aus ist man praktisch gleich auf dem Wanderweg. Mit dem Auto gibt es viele Möglichkeiten um in der Umgebung auch andere Attraktionen zu erleben. Da es an unseren Urlaubstagen sehr heiß war, haben wir auch ausgiebig das Schwimmbad in St.Urbahn genutzt. Dieses kann man ebenfalls sehr empfehlen, unsere Kinder waren begeistert vom Trampolin auf dem See und den Spielmöglichkeiten für Kinder. Dabei war der Eintritt auch nicht teuer. Obwohl sonst das Haus sehr ruhig liegt, kann man die Gegend am Donnerstagabend sehr stimmungsvoll erleben. Dann gibts tolle Musik bei den Stubingers mit dem Skilehrer-Trio. Sehr empfehlenswert. Wir würden jederzeit gern wieder unseren Urlaub dort verbringen.Vielen Dank für alles (auch die freundliche Begrüßung mit selbst gebackenem Kuchen).

Paul and Kathy Warren Wilson are English, but have been living in Klagenfurt, Austria since 2006, together with their 4 children. Paul is a pilot flying the Boeing 747 for Cathay Pacific and Kathy is a qualified teacher - teaching primary classes and also teaching English as a foreign language. It was time for a change from England - and Carinthia provides a wonderful outdoor life, as well as the chance for our children to become fluent in a second language. It's not really enough just to speak English nowadays...

Paul Warren Wilson purchased this chalet in 2007

Our house at Buggl in Bach provides the most wonderful setting for quiet relaxation, fresh air, walking, and tranquillity, whilst being only a short drive (35 mins) from Klagenfurt, the capital of Carinthia, where we live.

SKI- UND WANDERFERIEN MIT DER FAMILIE

  • 5 out of 5
Obwohl wir (9 Personen, 2 Familien mit Kindern) erst ein paar Tage vor unserem Aufenthalt gebucht hatten, wurden wir mit Kuchen, Wein, Milch und Obst sehr nett begrüßt. Die Zimmer waren bereits beheizt, die Betten waren bezogen und jeder hatte ein eigenes Badehandtuch. Das Haus ist groß genug für 8-9 Personen, liebevoll eingerichtet und uns hat es an nichts gefehlt. Zum Skifahren sind wir an zwei Tagen zum Gerlitzen gefahren (ca. 45 Minuten), ansonsten waren wir oft wandern. Auch das näher gelegenen Skigebiet Simonhöhe haben wir zu Fuß erkundet. Dieses Gebiet ist eher familiär, für Anfänger und kleinere Kinder gut geeignet. Besonders genossen haben wir die Ruhe und Abgeschiedenheit, die Aussicht vom Haus, den Kachelofen und den absolut leckeren Kaiserschmarrn, den wir bei Stubingers ein paar Schritte weiter (nach Vorbestellung) essen durften. Da Buggl in Bach schon sehr abgelegen liegt, empfiehlt es sich alle Einkäufe vorab zu besorgen.

A FANTASTIC PLACE!

  • 5 out of 5
we had a wonderful vacation at this beautiful holiday home. The house itself is very spacious, very clean, well maintained and aesthetic. It felt like a real home, and had everything we needed and more...But the highlight of this place is the outside: the garden , the balcony- it felt as if we are in a dream, the view is breath taking. sitting outside ,we could not be fed up! we did not want to leave this spectacular place.
we had plenty of things to do around: the lake nearby is wonderful, and we used Carinthia card for activities not far from buggl in bach.
last but not least, the owners welcomed us so warmly with home made products, were so kind answering all our questions, trying to assist when needed.
we were very pleased and recommend this holiday home !

TOLLES HAUS UND WUNDERSCHÖNE UMGEBUNG

  • 5 out of 5
Wir waren mit 8 Freunden über Silvester hier und haben unseren Aufenthalt mehr als genossen! Als erstes waren wir von der wunderschönen abgelegenen Lage begeistert, mitten in den Bergen, total ruhig und mit einer wunderschönen Aussicht!
Wir wurden sehr sehr herzlich von den Vermietern willkommen geheißen, die leider nicht persönlich da sein konnten uns aber mit leckeren Köstlichkeiten aus der Küche begrüßten. Das Haus ist sehr wohnlich und liebevoll eingerichtet und es gibt wirklich alles, was man in einem Haushalt benötigt. Kathy und Paul haben zahlreiche Informationen und Tipps zu dem Haus und zur Umgebung gesammelt und wirklich an alles gedacht, was für Besucher hilfreich sein könnte.
Vom Haus aus konnten wir täglich ausgedehnte Spaziergänge durch die Natur machen und besonders die Aussicht war dabei immer wieder grandios!

Nochmal ein großes Danke an Kathy und Paul für den freundlichen und hilfsbereiten Kontakt. Wir haben uns mehr als wohlgefühlt und ein wunderbares Silvester verbracht. Wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen!

LG Lisa

CHARMING AREA, CHARMING HOME!

  • 5 out of 5
We were extremely comfortable in this beautiful home in a quiet and yet very interesting area of Carinthia. Surrounded by fields, woods, mountains and many lakes, there was no lack of things to do and see. There is a pleasant and extremely clean bathing lake nearby, with a restaurant serving Kaffee and Strudel every day in summer. The local hiking was great, many options. There were bicycle rentals in nearby towns, along the Drau River and the Ossiacher See. The local farm hosts a musical evening with dinner and drinks available every week in the summer, quite a cultural experience! The owners of this house were most gracious to us in every way. I could not recommend this spot more highly!

BEST RENTAL HOME IN CARINTHIA

  • 5 out of 5
We spent 2 weeks up in Buggl in Bach and enjoyed it tremendously. We were pleasantly surprised by how homely the house felt, it has been fitted out with all the necessary utensils that a holiday house should need which made our family stay stress free. The house was clean, well maintained and very homely with plenty of space for our 5 kids and the internet facilities met our needs perfectly. It was lovely relaxing in such a beautiful remote Austrian setting with a breath taking mountain scenery all around at 1.100m. Last but not least, the pictures do not do the place as much justice as it deserves, it is far more beautiful in real life. To wrap it up, we will and shall recommend Buggl in Bach to our friends and relatives. Paul and Katty, once again many thanks for your hospitality and excellent customer service.

Tasty meals at the farmhouse! Otherwise St Urban
Car: necessary

Buggl in Bach is a hamlet of 8 houses clustered around the original farmhouse, belonging to the Stubinger family (now in their 4th generation here), who are famous for their Austrian musical evenings on Thursdays in July and August.

The house nestles in a curve on the hillside, with forests and pastures ('alms') all around. There are wide-ranging views across the countryside, looking 2,000 ft down into the valley near Feldkirchen, or around 100 km across to the Karawanken mountains bordering Slovenia and Italy. In winter the area is snow-covered; in spring, the fields come to life again with a myriad of wild flowers of all colours; and in summer, the cattle enjoy the lush grass which in late spring takes on a real emerald colour.

Right out of the front door, you can walk in almost any direction from the house, either along the many paths and tracks, or indeed freely across the fields. Friendly, local guest houses make for an easy and tasty stopping point during a day or half day walk. The Goggausee, a small lake with quiet swimming opportunities, is within walking distance - although it's downhill, so save some energy for the walk back home! Within easy driving distance are many more of Carinthias wonderful lakes - noted for their beautifully clear water and their warmth (up to 27 deg C in summer). The nearest is the family-friendly St Urbaner See, which has pleasant grassy areas for sitting in the shade or sun when not swimming.

Just over 30 mins drive brings you to the county capital of Klagenfurt, which lies adjacent to the Wörthersee lake, a delightful place for swimmers and sunbathers. The city itself has a charming old centre and offers all the usual facilities, including numerous coffee shops (for example in the Alter Platz) where one can sit outside and enjoy a coffee or a beer. Of special note is the Christkindlmarkt, a Christmas market full of character with unusual and good quality gifts for sale - as well as Glühwein and various local delicacies for those with an appetite - which runs from 24 Nov to 24 Dec each year.

This location in southern Austria also allows for an easy visit to Slovenia or Italy (although, as someone said to us... 'If you live here, why would you want to go anywhere else?!'). Tarvisio, just across the border into Italy, is 1 hr away, as also are Bled and Ljubljana in Slovenia. Salzburg is around 2 hr 30 min drive, and both Vienna and Venice are approx 3 hr 30 min. The Austrian trains also provide an excellent means of travel.

For skiers, the nearest area is Simonhöhe (approx 15 mins by car) - a relatively small area, ideal for beginners and lower intermediates. Simonhöhe is particularly popular with families, due to the nature of its slopes and facilities, and the fact that it tends not to have many crazies skiing wildly out of control down the slopes! Ski school and ski rental are available. For those looking for more challenging skiing, several areas lie within approx 1 hr drive away, including Bad Kleinkirchheim, Turracherhöhe and Nassfeld.
