Holiday rental in Laas for peace seekers! Chalet Butterfly. This will be the last summer season, because we are going to live in it at the end of 2018.
After a few wonderful holidays in Carinthia (a subtropical climate, which makes the sun shine about 260 days a year) we have taken the step to buy a piece of land and have our own house built. This piece of land we found in Laas (Distance Utrecht - Laas is 1044 km).
Are you looking for a quiet place with the forest within walking distance, where you can also walk with your dog, then you're fine here.
Our house was completed in January 2017. It is suitable for six people and you can bring your dogs, but no more than 2 per booking.
It is located on the southern slope of the Alps with the terrace on the sun side and is equipped with all comforts.
You have (permanently free) view of the Carnic Alps, which lie in the extension of the Italian Dolomites.
Laas is a small community with about 250 inhabitants in the municipality of Kötschach-Mauthen.
Kötschach is 5 minutes away. In the cozy village center of Kötschach you will find all the daily necessities, such as the bakery for fresh bread, supermarkets, restaurants and banks. Furthermore, a museum, a pharmacy, subtropical swimming paradise, the tourist office, various shops and doctors.
In the summer you can enjoy on the terrace, with a snack (BBQ) and a drink, from the healthy air and in winter, after you have stored the skis or snow shoes in the storage room, from the fine wood stove inside.
In the spring and autumn you can enjoy the nice climate and make beautiful walks (see photos). From the end of April it is already fine weather to be busy outside.

One of the largest and snow-sure ski arenas in Austria is Nassfeld with 110 km of groomed slopes which can be reached in 20 minutes with the free ski bus from the center of Kötschach. The Weissensee, known for the alternative Elfstedentocht, but where you can also make beautiful skating trips, you reach in about 45 minutes by car. Cross-country trails and winter hiking (and Nordic) routes are also in the immediate vicinity.
The mild and sunny Mediterranean climate is ideal for beautiful walks in the mountains.

We are Joost and Mariëtte and in 2013 we fell in love with this region. Now we have realized our dream and have built a detached chalet on a piece of land. We have bought a second plot for our house to secure the view. Fully rest and especially enjoy the beautiful nature.
