                                                          Unseren Winterurlaub haben wir mit 3 Familien in diesem großen Haus verbracht. Das Haus ist vollständig eingerichtet, es gibt einen großen Aufenthaltsraum mit Kamin und eine schöne Küche. Der Skibus hält in unmittelbarer Nähe. Alle Erwachsene und Kinder haben sich sehr wohlgefühlt.

                                                          Well equipped house for a good ski holidays

                                                          We were 2 families with 3 children for the first time in Hermagor. All the rooms in the house have a good size so we had no problems with our stuff. Particularly important was for us that we have a good internet connection. The kitchen is as well good equipped with a dishwasher and all the necessary tools for cooking. The ski area Nassfeld is about 15 minutes away by car. We had a good skiing holidays at Nassfeld ( thanks to the snow guns )although there was no snow at the mountains in Austria at that time. We would recommend this house for a good holidays.

                                                          Wir (7 Erwachsene und 2 Kinder) hatten eine wunderbare Zeit in Buggl in Bach, inkl. 2 x Dämmerschoppen beim Stubinger (eine zunächst ungewohnte, aber durchaus erlebenswerte Abwechslung, die man mitnehmen sollte). Wir haben die Ruhe und Abgeschiedenheit genossen und uns in dem Haus sehr wohl gefühlt.
