Karnten (Karintië) is a nice Alpine region with plenty of activities natural resources worth visiting with children as well as adults. The kids loved it, we loved it, ... the goal of this vacation was more then met be outside most of the time on a thight budget. The owner arranged Kärnten cards for us which unlocked major discounts on plenty of activities.
We stayed here as part of a family summer holiday (2 parents and our teenage son) and this was the first time we'd visited Austria (driving from the UK). The apartment is superb - clean, tastefully presented, comfortable, well equipped and with great attention to detail. The owners/hosts were charming and friendly, but also respected our privacy. And the location is incredible, with spectacular views from the balcony (and every window has a view too). Flowers on the table and on the balcony provide a nice finishing touch, and I can't think of anyting we'd have changed. The road up to the property is (as you might imagine) quite steep and twisty, but is well maintained and not too scary despite taking you fairly high up above the valley. We only stayed for 5 nights (would love to return sometime), and found there's plenty to explore in the area, from local walks, castles, some very pretty villages and towns, mountain roads, cable cars etc. However some of our favourite memories of the holiday were just from sitting on the balcony enjoying the mountain scenery whilst relaxiing with a glass of wine. I don't usually give such glowing reviews, but I really couldn't fault our stay. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys wonderful scenery and great accommodation.
