After a search of several years we have found our holiday home in the idyllic village of Kötschach-Mauthen in Carinthia, Austria, directly against the Italian border.
Do you, like us, enjoy luxury and comfort? The house is equipped with a fully equipped kitchen, underfloor heating and a lovely wood stove, two terraces (1 covered) on the south and west so that you can enjoy the sun all day long. Upstairs are sleeping places for 6 people and a bathroom with shower, bath and sink, separate toilet. From the master bedroom you step on the balcony, with a beautiful panoramic view and two sun loungers so you can also relax there.
The Chalet is located on the outskirts of the village, right next to the ski slope of Kötschach-Mauthen and a few minutes from a lovely swimming pool, with indoor and outdoor pools with sunbathing areas and a wonderful sauna. From the Chalet you walk in 5 minutes to the village, where there are all kinds of shops. Among other 3 large supermarkets.
This is a selection of everything the Chalet and Kötschach-Mauthen has to offer, for more detailed information and activities in the area I refer you to the site of our Chalet.
Also in the summer there is plenty to do in Kötschach-Mauthen and the surrounding area. Thanks to its central location, Haus Alpenglühen is an excellent base for both active and passive holidays.
Cycling & Walking:
The region is ideal for exploring by bike or on foot. You can go out on a mountain bike and enjoy the untouched nature or climb one of the many mountain passes with the bicycle. If you prefer to do something on foot, the region offers various possibilities for walking.
The Kötschach-Mauthen region will also appeal to the water enthusiast. In the area you will find a number of lakes with crystal clear water such as the Ossiacher See and Pressegger See, the warmest lake in Austria. On a beautiful summer day it is also worthwhile to pay a visit to the nature bath in Kötschach-Mauthen.
Rafting & Kayaking:
Carinthia also offers various possibilities for activity on the water. You can go kayaking and rafting on the rivers Gail near Kötschach-Mauthen and the Isel near Lienz. These rivers are suitable for both whitewater rafting and relaxing tours.
Because Kötschach-Mauthen is located in the southernmost part of Austria, you can also include Italy in your holiday. An absolute must is making a day trip to Venice. You can reach Venice in just two hours by car. It is also well worth a day on the Adriatic coast near the Italian town of Grado.
There is a ski slope, ski school and great practice slope for children and beginners within a two minute walk from the chalet. The track has a length of six kilometers and ends almost in the garden of the chalet. Down at the ski slope there is an opportunity to enjoy a drink.
The Nassfeld Hermagor ski area is 15 minutes away by car (or free ski bus) from the chalet. Nassfeld Hermagor has 130 kilometers of ski runs with very modern lifts and is snow guaranteed! You will find cozy cabins to drink and eat and afterwards to celebrate an après-ski. Once a week there is evening skiing here.
In 17 minutes you can take the Millennium Express, the longest cable car in Austria, the 6,000 m long route from the Gailtal to the ski area.
Surroundings of the Chalet
Wellness, peace and quiet:
The area is known for its unspoiled nature. During your ski holiday you can enjoy skiing, snowboarding and cross-country skiing in open areas. In your summer vacation the beautiful nature blossoms. Wellness, peace and quietness characterize the environment, but also the active person comes into its own with the many possibilities for mountain biking, cycling, hiking and other activities.
The environment is beautiful with a pleasant climate on the south side of the Alps. A day trip to the lovely Lienz, the Italian seaside resort Grado or the romantic Venice is also possible. The chalet is located only 15 kilometers from the Italian border. Moreover, the price level in this environment is lower than what you normally expect in your holiday area.
After a search of several years we have found our holiday home in the idyllic village of Kötschach-Mauthen in Carinthia, Austria, directly against the Italian border. The village is wonderfully sheltered on the south side of the Alps. We would really appreciate it if you decide to rent our Chalet. We hope to offer you a nice holiday in our Chalet. Ad and Wilnita
