Our host, Martin, was very helpful with information and supplying towels, cushions and toys. Only having been skiing in Austria before I was not expecting it to be so beautiful for a summer holiday.

                                                            We, 6 people, had a great time and stay at Lilly's cottage. Lilly welcomed us very warmly and gave us the feeling "to come home"! The cottage is very well equipped and you have a great view into the green surrounding. We took our breakfast in the beautiful garden and make a bbq. The sleeping rooms are very nice and the beds are very comfortable. The living room is perfect for sitting together in group chatting and eating. We highly recommend Lilly's place!!

                                                            Home from home

                                                            5 of 5
                                                            We booked 3 of the apartments at this accommodation as we were a family of 3 generations which included 3 small children. What a wise choise we made, Christine the owner and her twin sons went out of there way to make this a most memorable holiday for our family and from welcoming us on our arrival couldn't do enough to ensure that we had all we needed in the form of information and literature of the area. Nothing was too much trouble, to even bringing out a childrens picnic table and seats and then bringing umbrellas to ensure that the children had shade whilst they were eating their picnic in the garden., and then bringing each of them a desert Christine had made for her own families lunch. Allowing the children to pick the cherries from the tree and whilst Christine was watering her vegetables she played with children pretending to spray them with the hosepipe. This was truly a home from home environment for all of us, we had beautiful apartments with a spectacular view over to Maria Worth with good access to the lake, trains and 5 minutes down the road to Portschach with shops and restaurants and of course all the lakeside facilities of the beach and the promenade. We had barbeques on the terrace and spent quality time with our family whilst the children played in the garden or in the sandpit. The list is endless I could go on and on about these most memorable hosts and all they did for us to ensure we had the holiday of a lifetime and that has come from all 9 of us. Even to the point of one of our 4 yr old grandsons asking when he arrived at the airport if he was going to Christines. I would rate this holiday home for families with children 20 out of 10 if I could. We felt so comfortable at Haus Carantania that we have no hesitation in stating that we will return and would change our holiday dates if necessary. Our heartful thanks to Christine, Bernard and Sebastian from all 9 of the Softley family and 2 yr old Jamie says lots of kisses.
