Heinke is German I am English and we have been married 48 years We are still trying to retire. We live in Dubai in the winter (helping with 3 of our grand children) We come to Austria in the summer and you will understand why we called this retirement business Contrastescapes.
Sounds silly but I first saw the property in June and couldn't believe all the flowers in the next door fields. That and the sound of the waterfall and I knew Heinke would love it.
John or Heinke Felton purchased this apartment in 2004
We love our 2 very different Austrian Flats. The Garden Wohnung is more traditional , cosy and a bit eccentric whilst the Family flat is more modern and has more room.
Both are places to relax ,drink in the scenery and enjoy.
Places for Happy times

Just returned from our 4th consecutive stay and enjoyed every minute.
The property is so convenient for a walking holiday. A short stride to the cable car and local Restaurants with great hospitality. We particularly enjoy our meals at the Sportalm and every one should walk along side stream down to Hutters for Coffee & Cakes.
A visit to the Larchenhutte is also a must!
The apartments are always clean and well maintained and great personal service always.
We have already booked for next year. Can't wait.
Von Weihnachten über Silvester 2013/14 haben wir (6 Personen) unsere Skiferien in diesem Appartement verbracht. Heinke und John Felton haben eine sehr schöne und große Wohnung, die zudem super geschnitten und ausgestattet ist.
Die Lage ist 1a: ruhig und 5 Min. Fußweg (eben!) zur Seilbahn – mit Skidepot im am Lift der glatte Luxus!
Wenn es uns mal wieder nach Kärnten zum Skifahren verschlägt, kommen wir gerne wieder.
Über Silvester 2010/11haben wir mit unserer großen Familie ( 8 Personen ) den Winterurlaub in dem großzügigen, freundlichen und hellen, durch und durch komfortablen Appartement von Heinke und John Felton voll genossen. Es liegt schön ruhig, der nahe Wasserfall rauscht beruhigend im Hintergrund. Zu Fuß sind es nur 5 min. bis zur Seilbahn. Leider verfügt der kleine Ort über keine Einkaufsmöglichkeit abgesehen von dem guten Service der beiden Sportgeschäfte. Dafür sind gute
Supermärkte in BKK. - Wir kommen gerne wieder!
Bad Kleinkirchheim is in the valley below the village of St. Oswald. The whole valley is a ski resort. The area is beautiful with mountains rivers and lakes. To us St Oswald is the place to relax but both in summer and winter you can have the most active of holidays. Italy is just an hour away so give yourself the time to tour around but you may prefer to sit and watch 'our' waterfall. hiking, golf, mountain biking spa baths and other attractions - the list goes on and on This is a place to explore and enjoy with cake shops, restaurants and a reputation for hospitality. The skiing is extensive and somehow there don't seem to be long queues for the lifts.
Ask us about driving through the Alps, bringing the car by train or flying to Klagenfurt , Salzburg or even Venice or Vienna ).
Other Activities: Winter Sports, golf, tennis, walking hiking, rambling even ambling
Golf: Bad Kleinkirchheim has its own Golf course with several others in the area. Special arrangements allow purchase of cards allowing use of a selection of courses.
