A peaceful week in the Austrian hills.

5 of 5
I spent a wonderfully peaceful week at Paul and Kathy's house in Buggl. It was the end of the winter so I managed to get a couple of days of skiing in at local resorts (around one hour's drive) and also enjoyed some gentle strolling in the hills straight from the house; one day lunching in Italy, and a trip to Lake Bled another day. The property was very well equipped with everything one might require and all correspondence with Paul and Kathy prior to my visit was replied to very promptly and efficiently. They were great hosts.
