Additional information

We Thea and Ad van Oirschot and live in a village in North Brabant and have three grown children.

We were in the fortunate circumstance that we could build a house.

Why in Carinthia? One of the main reasons is the fact that Carinthia clearly has 2 seasons, each with a completely different atmosphere. The winter can be very strict with lots of snow making it an ideal region for all winter sports.

The summer can be hot and sunny. (Carinthia has the most sunshine of Austria) The region offers many opportunities for those summer days on a very pleasant way to spend.

What we as people of Brabant also appreciate the friendly atmosphere there, not only in Koetschach, but depends entirely Carinthia.

People here are really genuinely friendly. Very different than in the major holiday centers as we all know.

Kötschach tries everything to do to the living conditions for its population would be natural and comfortable as possible to do. It really is a 'umweltfreundliche "church that values ??a clean and fresh environment. The pure mountain air
contributes to this in a natural way in to.

On the following pages we have tried to give you an idea of ??the opportunities this region has to offer.

Hopefully speak a different you and so you decide your holiday in Carinthia (and perhaps in our house) to spend.

Ad and Thea Oirschot
There start within a few hundred meters from our chalet really dozens of walks. These are all well marked.
Some of these walks we will describe briefly below.

Mauthner Klamm: This hike starts at the natural pool in Mauthen and is almost flat. (see picture)

Oedenhutte: This hike can be established via a paved road or in the woods.
Both options are well marked. Opposite the church, take the Schlanke Gasse and then automatically comes further evidence against. In Oedenhutte you can drink or eat. This walk takes about 1 hour. (Back)

Waterfalls at Weidenburg:
Through Mauthen Wuermlach you enter Weidenburg. Just before you Weidenburg leave again, you will find on the right the start of this route.

These three walks are fairly short.

There are also plenty of opportunities for long walks possibly even overnight if you decide to take a trip cabins on the mountain ridges.
A very famous is route 403 (the Karnischer Hoehenweg)

'S another long route 229 (the Gailtaler Hoehenweg)

Other well-known walks are the so Geotrails. These are routes with historical background is explained through a variety of dishes during the routes.
The five routes are:
GeoTrail Wolayersee.
GeoTrail Ploeckenpass
GeoTrail Zollnersee
GeoTrail Nassfeld
GeoTrail Garnitzen Klamm.

Tickets to Tourist Association available at the Town Hall. (free)
Kötschach has a nice pool (indoor and outdoor sunbathing +)

Mauthen (± 2 km) has a beautiful natural pool.
Swimming can also in several lakes in the area. The Gail River
which runs through the village area is also excellent for foot baths, games etc. There are several beaches.
In Carinthia were built several routes that are specially designed for the tourist.
eg. The Grossglockner High Alpine Road, one route of 48 km that leads to the top of Grossglockner. (The highest mountain in Austria with 3,798 meters).
If you are driving towards Lienz find itself the signs marked Grossglockner.
The route runs through the Hohe Tauern National Park.

This route is open from May / June (depending on snow conditions)

Another route is the Villacher Alpenstrasse. This route is much shorter and leads to the Dobratsch (2167 meters) and has magnificent views including those in Villach.

This route is open all year.

The Nockalmstrasse (to the right of the A 10, Villach-Salzburg)
is a route of 35 km. This route runs for the most part across the undulating roads.

This route is open from May to late October.

Goldeck-Panoramastrasse upper left Villach is a short route of 14.5 km with magnificent views.

This route is open all year. Extreme weather aside.

Directories of all these routes are in our chalet.

Venice is a 2 hour drive from our chalet.
If you decide to go there than it is wise to
"Back" to ride to Venice. Thus, not according to the most obvious way.
From Punta Sabbioni you by boat to Venice and avoid the busy highway which runs Venice.
Punta Sabbioni is on 't tip of a peninsula right in Venice.

Another beautiful old city is Udine you using the Plöckenpass Tolmezzo and in an hour you can reach.

Grado is the nearest seaside resort on the Adriatic coast. Also within easy reach. 'N Bit past Udine.

Nassfeld is located about 25 minutes from our cottage (on flat roads towards Hermagor, is more clearly marked)

At the rink you will find the ski school, ski hire and free ski storage so you in the evening and the morning do not have to lug your skis.

It is not such a busy resort like you find it in Tyrol.
The ski lodges (26 x) are smaller and therefore more relaxed.
This ski area is called Zettersfeld located in Lienz (35 minutes drive from our chalet)
It is very easy to find, it is clearly stated as soon as you place name: Lienz passed.

It's not a fancy ski resort but a ski resort with magnificent views a very wide slopes. The height of the ski area is 1660 to 2278 meters.

You find again small huts with a friendly atmosphere. Many people we have spoken on this track are the crowds and commercial Tyrol fled.
In the Gail valley, you will find dozens of cross-country trails. You can close all our chalet in a trail "einsteigen".
This trail can be found as you walk into the Bundesstrasse. Then this road for about 100 meters (ri.Hermagor-Villach) and then turn right towards Gewerbezone Kotschach Ost. After few meters you will find, just over the bridge "Loipeneinstieg".
If you walk to Mauthen or driving, you'll find just behind the bridge
(At restaurant Erlenhof) also a "Loipeneinstieg". This is clearly indicated. If then a piece of the valley ski, you will find all sorts of connections to other routes.
You can return at various times with the free ski bus.
(This bus still goes from Hermagor to Koetschach so via the B 111, see bus timetable in the cottage)
