Wonderful winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a great, unforgettable winter getaway experience!

House is decorated exceptionally well, with high attention to detail, in a cozy country style. Rooms are very well equipped, clean and comfortable. Owner arranged shopping service for us since shops were closed during Christmas, it was very helpful. Relaxing atmosphere is all around – beautiful snowy forest, stunning mountain views… In the night you can hear how snowflakes fall, nothing else. Perfect place to relax and get carried away by your thoughts. Ski area is just 20 minutes away, and what a pleasure to sit beside the fireplace after skiing! We will definitely come back!

Ferienhaus KATHREINKOGEL *****

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten uns sehr, sehr wohlgefühlt (45 J., 46 J., 15 J. und 10 J. alt). Wir waren das erste Mal in Österreich zum Wandern und sind sehr positiv überrascht.

Das Ferienhaus lag in einer ruhigen Seitenstraße ganz idyllisch und ruhig. Wir hatten morgens Rehe am Haus und in den Bäumen spielten Eichhörnchen, während wir auf der Terrasse frühstückten.

Der Badeteich war eine Wohltat nach dem Wandern oder gleich morgens nach dem Aufstehen, sehr klares Wasser, auch unsere Kinder hatten die Abkühlung genossen.

Das Ferienhaus war sehr gut ausgestattet, gepflegt, sauber und die Betreuung der Verwalterin war 1A. In der Nähe gab es sehr viele Freizeitangebote, z.B. Schluchtenwanderungen, Seen, Aussichtspunkte, Museen, Zoos, Schlösser, Restaurant, etc.. Auch die Nähe zu Klagenfurt, Villach und Velden sind optimal.

Man kann sich aber auch sehr gut im/am Haus aufhalten, für ausgiebige Saunagänge oder am offenen Kamin unter der Terrasse, u.v.m.

Very pleasant stay in Kathreinkogel

  • 5 of 5

We rented Kathreinkogel recently for our family with four children aged 3 through 10.

We had a terrific week and would love to come back soon.

The house is very spacious and elegantly furnished so you really feel at home. Apart from the furnishing we particularly liked the fact that there are many different places where one can sit (kitchen, living room, sun deck, near the pool, second living room in the basement) so that everyone can do his or her own thing without feeling crowded. The house feels much more as a real 'home base' than other vacation rentals.

Secondly, the housekeeper dropped by several times during our stay to make sure that everything worked for us. Also the house was exceptionally clean and all appliances functioned properly (not always true in vacation rentals).

Carinthia offers lots of opportunities for hiking, cycling and visiting villages and cities so it was easy to fill our time. Moreover, it was very pleasant just to sit by the pool or play in the garden (which is very large, in total probably around 1.000m2).

Finally it was a pleasure to deal with the owners who are very friendly and who responded promptly to aal e-mails.

So we have no hesitation at all about recommending Kathreinkogel to other families!

Ein tolles Haus in einer tollen Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten das Landhaus Kathreinkogel Anfang August für knapp zwei Wochen gemietet und eine wirklich tolle Zeit dort verbracht.

Das Haus war genau so, wie wir uns ein Landhaus in Österreich vorgestellt haben. Es ist super gemütlich eingerichtet und mit allem, was man für einen gelungenen Hausurlaub braucht, mehr als reichlich ausgestattet. Wir machen seit ca. 15 Jahren Hausurlaube und haben selten ein so perfekt ausgestattetes Haus, was Küchenutensilien, Geschirr, Besteck, Töpfe, Pfannen, Handtücher, Bettwäsche etc... anbelangt, vorgefunden. Es hat einfach nichts gefehlt.

Sehr schön ist auch der Garten mit dem großen Schwimmteich, der uns in der zu unserer Urlaubszeit herrschenden Hitzewelle wirklich tolle Dienste geleistet hat. Die Ausstattung des Teichs entspricht schon eher einem Pool als einem Teich mit Umwälzpumpe und Frischwasserzufuhr und das Wasser war wirklich immer super sauber.

Toll ist auch die Aufteilung in zwei Wohnungen, was Familien mit kleineren Kindern oder ältere Menschen bestimmt sehr zu schätzen wissen. Man ist im unteren Bereich (wenn man möchte) komplett ungestört und der Lärmpegel aus der oberen Etage ist gleich Null.

Alles in allem ein wirklich toller Urlaub in einer tollen Umgebung. Wir kommen ganz bestimmt wieder und können das Haus zu 100 % weiterempfehlen.

Alles Perfekt!

  • 5 of 5

alles um den Aufenthalt hat perfekt funktioniert; sehr freundliche Vermieter, eine immer hilfsbereite Verwalterin und ein Haus, dem es an gar nichts fehlt. Hervorragende Lage und nur einen Katzensprung vom Wörthersee entfernt. Wir haben Kärnten zum ersten aber sicher nicht zum letzten Mal besucht.
