Our home

More pictures coming soon!

Our beautiful home just outside Vienna includes 230 m² of floor space and comprises the ground floor of an original, still-functioning wine château from the 13th century--one of the oldest wine estates in Europe.

The entire property belongs to our family; parents (in-law) live upstairs (separate entrance!) and wine restaurant is across the courtyard, within the same complex. Private chapel, large private garden (about 500m²) to the rear--in addition to the larger gardens belonging to the property.

The apartment was completely refurbished in 2007 and includes oak parquetry floors (in some rooms), solid wood kitchen with granite tops, vaulted ceilings, two televisions, four bedrooms plus study, two living rooms, and a large private garden with gas barbecue. We have five gorgeous children (between 4 and 11 years of age). Non-smokers and no pets.

The ground floor apartment includes a master bedroom with double bed and en suite bathroom; a study with a large flat-screen television and fold-out couch bed; a small children's bedroom with bunk bed; a large children's room with bunk bed plus single bed; plus one additional single room. Ideally suited to a couple with children, though additional adults could also feel comfortable.

With the exception of three weeks in August, during a large wine festival, it is possible to park your car in the main courtyard, and to unload luggage / shopping at our front door. The wine festival runs from 7 – 17 August and with the large number of visitors to the property will cause some disturbances; while the garden remains completely private, the front side of the house will resemble a busy piazza during this period.

For somebody looking for the best of wine, architecture and culture, combined with visits to downtown Vienna, this is probably as good as it gets.

Cleaner available as needed; high-quality food and wine available at good prices from Tues to Sunday on-site (our winery restaurant) or at other taverns in our street. English-speaking people at the property.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Situated in a beautiful wine-growing town, we are about 30 minutes from downtown Vienna by car (depending on traffic) or 35-45 minutes by direct bus to the State Opera House. The bus stop is only 100m from our door and the bus runs from about 5am until 2am, directly to the centre of the city!

Thus an ideal base for a city/rural getaway. Train station 500m, supermarket 500m, bakery 200m, historic spa town of Baden is 2km away. Banks, cafés, doctors etc. all in walking distance.

Vienna airport 30 mins by car. Vineyards, spas, Vienna woods (hiking, walking biking), wine taverns, fishing/fly fishing, sports facilities, world-class golf course, tennis courts, swimming pools etc. all in immediate vicinity.
