Our 4 bedroom holiday house offers a comfortable and stylish base for family and groups all year round with of a choice of winter sports activities and resorts within an easy drive and for the rest of the year there is hiking, lakes, tennis, horse riding, golf, spas and a range of exciting outdoor adrenaline activities on your doorstep (Are you up for Europe’s longest Zipline or white water rafting?)
This is the place to get away from it all and experience real Austrian hospitality. We have been coming to the area for 30 years and we provide renters with a guide to all the best things to do, places to go, where to shop and our favourite restaurants!
The house is situated at the top of a quaint village nestled at the base of the Grimming, a stunning mountain, one of the highest free standing peaks in Europe. The house is a charming traditional Austrian farmhouse which has been lovingly renovated to provide 4 double bedrooms, a sitting room, large kitchen/diner, dining room, bathroom and 2 separate toilets. There is a wood burning stove in the hall for an additional warmth if needed although the newly installed oil burning boiler keeps the house at a perfect temperature all year round.
The house has a fully equipped kitchen with everything you could need, a separate dining room and a sitting room with large screen TV (the TV is not connected to either a aerial or satellite - it is purely to watch DVDs), DVD player and an extensive collection of DVDs for your enjoyment. There is also a library of English books for all tastes plus children’s toys and games. There is an unlimited broadband service available at no extra cost. We offer two travel cots for babies which can be used free of charge and babies do not need to be included when getting a quote for renting the house but let us know if these are required so they can be placed in the house ready for your use.
We supply towels and all bedding.
The house is located in Untergrimming which sits almost directly in the middle of Austria, a 1.5 hour drive from Graz, Linz and Salzburg and a 3 hour drive from Vienna or Munich airports.
Stainach-Irdning train station with direct services from cities around Austria is only 5 minutes away if you need to pick someone up who is joining your group.
In the winter the two big ski resorts that we go to are Tauplitzalm and Planneralm. The Tauplitz chairlift that takes you up to Tauplitzalm is 5 minutes away and the Planneralm resort is 20 minute drive. The Planai ski resorts of Schladming, Haus, Reiteralm and Hochwurzen are a 30 minute drive away and offer night skiing and tobogganing as well as skiing and snowboarding for every level. There is cross country skiing 15 minutes away and the Grimming Therme Spa is also a 15 minute drive, perfect after a long day on the slopes.
In the summer there are range of lakes within a 10 to 25 minute drive and there is golf and tennis locally as well as mountain biking and walks directly from outside the house and a large choice of places to go for cultural, adventure orientated activities or just simple relaxation within an easy drive. There are lots of very child friendly activities locally including swimming pools, parks and restaurants with adventure playgrounds.
There are three supermarkets within a 5 minute drive, a pub in the village and 6 of our favourite restaurants within a 15 minute drive.
