The most regular visitors to Chalet Kolbnitz?

  • 5 of 5

We are a travel-loving family of five and almost never go to the same place twice. But we are regular visitors to Chalet Kolbnitz; we’ve been every year for the last four years and have just booked our fifth!

It’s easy to say why we keep coming back: the Chalet is a beautiful and functional house in a stunning area with lots to do.

In the village itself there is a fantastic (and weirdly deserted) swimming pool, a small supermarket, a funicular railway (with choice of mountain) and a few places to eat. Kolbnitz is also well-connected and it is easy to explore the local area; there is walking, swimming, historical buildings, museums and other tourist attractions. There are also cycling and running trails accessible from the Chalet.

The house functions perfectly for our young family. There is plenty of space – all the bedrooms are a good size and the kitchen is a great space for cooking / eating family meals – and the house is clean and well-kept. Albin, who looks after the house, is very helpful indeed; he and his wife also do a super job on the garden, which our kids love exploring. We’re also fans of the woodburner and have spent many a happy night toasting ourselves in the lounge.

So we can’t recommend it highly enough – it suits us perfectly and we plan to keep coming back!

De mooie, comfortabele woning in Kolbnitz.

  • 5 of 5

Het verblijf in de woning zandlach 40 is ons goed bevallen. De ruimte in het huis was geweldig. De keuken met al haar materialen was voor een kookliefhebber een genot om daar een maaltijd te bereiden.

Naast deze ruimtes binnen was het buiten genieten. We hebben vaak ontbeten op het terras, een beter begin van de dag kun je je niet wensen. Vanaf het terras had je een mooi gezicht op de omgeving met als hoogtepunt de kleine Danielsberg, een wandeling naar dit uitzichtpunt is zeker de moeite waard. Vanuit de woonkamer heb je een prachtig uitzicht op de bergen. Naast de mooie, comfortabele woning is er in de omgeving van Kolbnitz genoeg te doen. De reisseckbahn naar 2200m is de moeite waard. Vanaf dit punt heb je een schitterend uitzicht over de stuwmeren. Daarnaast starten er mooie wandelingen en is de reisseckhutte een aanrader om te genieten van een specialiteit uit de omgeving.

Voor ons waren de 2 weken zo voorbij en hadden we graag nog iets langer willen genieten van al het mooi's van deze omgeving.

A wonderful holiday at Chalet Kolbnitz

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a wonderful holiday at Chalet Kolbnitz. We spent a week there with 4 friends around new year's eve. The Chalet is nice and in good shape, with everything necessary to cook and relax. The location in a peaceful village is nice, with view on the moutain. Supermarkets, gasstations, and the Malnitz/Ankogel ski resort are easily accessible by car. We'd recommend this place.

Zwei sehr schöne, unvergessliche Wochen in Kärnten

  • 5 of 5

Im September 2010 erlebte meine Lebensgefährtin und ich zwei sehr erholsame Wochen im Chalet Kolbnitz.

Das Dorf Kolbnitz ist zentral gelegen, Sehenswürdigkeiten wie die Städte Spital. Villach und Klagenfurt oder der Kärnter Nationalpark, der Millstädter See mit allen Wassersportarten, sind schnell erreichbar. Zwei Bergbahnen sind in Kolbnitz, davon eine nur 5 Minuten vom Haus entfernt. An den Endstationen sind sehr schöne Bergwanderungen unterschiedlicher Schwierigkeitsgraden möglich.

Im Dorf ist auch ein Lebensmittelgeschäft für den täglichen Bedarf vorhanden.

Das geräumige historische Holzhaus mit einem schönen Kachelofen hat sehr viel Charme. Man brauch trotzdem nicht auf Luxus wie DVD-Player, Fernsehen etc. zu verzichten. Auch die Küche ist komplett ausgestattet.

Sehr schön ist auch der Garten mit den Apfel- und Zwetschenbäumen, die uns sehr gut geschmeckt haben. Auf der Sitzecke hinter dem Hause hatte man einen sehr schönen Blick und konnte die Nachmittagssonne und den Sonnenuntergang genießen.

Insgesamt hatten wir zwei sehr schöne, unvergessliche Wochen in Kärnten. Wir werden bestimmt wiederkommen.



In September 2010 my partner and I spent two very relaxing weeks in Chalet Kolbnitz.

The village Kolbnitz is centrally located, places like the city hospital. Villach and Klagenfurt and the Carinthian National Park, Millstaedter lake with all water sports are easily accessible. The two cable cars in Kolbnitz are only 5 minutes from the house. At the end stations are very beautiful mountain walks of varying difficulty levels.

In the village there is a grocery store for your daily needs.

The spacious historic wooden house with a beautiful traditional heating stove has lots of charm. One need not want on luxuries such as DVD player, television, etc. The kitchen is fully equipped.

Very nice is also the garden with apple and plum trees, we tasted the fruit and they were very good. In the sitting area behind the house there is a very nice view and we were able to enjoy the afternoon sun and sunset.

Overall, we had two very beautiful, unforgettable weeks in Carinthia. We will come back for sure.

Lovely house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I stayed at Chalet Kolbnitz for a week in late July 2010 and it was lovely! The location is brilliant, at the heart of a traditional Austrian village with its local amenities, but with easy access to some of the main attractions in Carinthia National Park. There's lots to do in the area, with Lake Millstatt, the river Moll and all its watersports, plenty of lovely walks and a mountain railway literally 5 mins from the house!

The house itself is very spacious and has everything you need, including little luxuries like a playstation and dvd player, and a really useful pack giving information on all the things to do and see in the area. The kitchen is well equipped and the beds really comfortable. The garden is large with its own fruit trees (the apples were good!) and gets the sun for most of the day. Sitting on the decking watching the sunset over the mountains every evening was a real treat. The house is clean and well maintained and the local who looks after the house for the owners was friendly and helpful.

We hired a car for the week which I would definitely recommend to make the most of the local area and in particular the nearby panoramic mountain roads, however there was a rail station and bus stops in the village so public transport could also be an option.

All in all we had a really relaxing and memorable week. The house had absolutely everything we needed and more, and it proves that you don't have to be a skiier to enjoy the Austrian Alps! Beautiful - Thank you.

Owner's Response: Hi Laura, So glad you both had a great time at the house, we try to make it as great as possible. Albin (who looks after the house) is a star isn't he? Last week we bought a new oven and hob for the house too so life is even easier. Let us know if you think there is anything we can do to improve the house for future guests, we'll do our best to arrange it. Hope to see you back at the house someday. Kind regards, Ben

Es fehlt in dem urigen, gemütlichen, zweistöckigen Haus an nichts. Man sitzt gern in der rustikalen Küche. Die freistehende Badewanne im ringsum in Holz gehaltenen Bad im ersten Stock ist schlicht großartig, wenn man abends nach anstrengender Bergwanderung keine Kraft mehr hat, um noch fünf Minuten unter der im Dusche im Erdgeschoss zu stehen. Das Haus war in sehr gepflegtem Zustand. Die Nachbarn, für die Übergabe des Hauses beauftragte Freunde des Vermieters, waren sehr freundlich. Trotzdem von der Einrichtung her Wert auf ein traditionlles Erscheinungsbild gelegt wird, funktioniert das WLAN hervorragend und es gibt eine Playstation, was das Herz unserer mitreisenden, wanderfaulen Teenager erfreute. 20 Laufminuten vom Haus entfernt befindet sich ein ganz nettes Freibad. Am gegenüberliegenden Berg fährt die Kreuzeckbahn, ein Schrägaufzug, von dessen Bergstation aus man sehr schön wandern kann. Es braucht nur 35 Gehminuten zur Mernikalm, an der es eine sensationell schöne "Hütten" zur Einkehr gibt. Von dort aus lässt sich beispielsweise der Kleine Salzkofel, Gipfel mit 2222 Metern Höhe, auch für den Nichtalpinisten ganz gut zu Fuß erreichen - auf einem Rundweg, der fantastische Aussichten bereit hält. Auch ansonsten lässt sich von Kolbnitz aus sehr viel unternehmen, seien es die Besichtigung der Künstlerstadt Gmünd, ein Ausflug zum Millstätter See, die Fahrt auf der Nockalmstraße oder in die andere Richtung eine Bergfahrt auf den Dreitausender Ankogel, die Besichtigung idyllischer Hochtäler oder ein etwas längerer, aber problemlos an einem Tag machbarer Ausflug zum Großglockner (Murmeltiere!) nebst Edelweißspitze. Wir waren eine Woche dort und mit der Gegend noch lange nicht "fertig"... unbedingte Empfehlung!
