Visited many interesting places (Wörthersee, Tscheppaschlucht, Gösselsdorfersee, Minimundus, Pyramidenkogel, Petzen and the steam train in Rosental). These places were all within 40 minutes travel time from Eberndorf. The apartment was nice, the rooms are not too big, but the kitchen and the balcony is big enough to sit around. The house is in a quite area, our children spent lot of time playing in the garden. The hosts were very nice and helpful. They put water and juice for us in the fridge by the time we've arrived. They live in the house, available all the time. During our stay everything went ok.

It was perfectly situated between the town of Klagenfurt and the Lake Worthersee. Both were easily accessible by car (5 mins) or on foot (25-30 mins) The house was peaceful and ideal for me as I needed to be able to relax prior to the Ironman event. The house has a quirky charm and the owner was helpful and kind. I would definitely stay here again should I return to do the race in the future.
