Our home

We have a four bedroom house in the South of Austria. The small village called Zettling is very close (6 miles) to Graz, which is the capital of Styria. The house is located in a quiet street beside a forest. The house was built in 1998 and is very bright, equipped with all modern conveniences. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms, one balcony, one bathroom and one toilet. All bedrooms are large. Downstairs there is a large living/dining room, another bedroom, bathroom/toilet and a well equipped kitchen with microwave, oven, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. We have Satellite Television and a Computer with an unlimeted High Speed Internet Access, DVD recorder, DVD Player, Washing Machine and a Tumble Drier. Outside there is a terrace and a garden, which has the sun for most of the day. There is also a garage for two cars. Outside you can play soccer, table tennis, swim in the natural pond, which we share with our very friendly neighbours. Four minutes from our home there is also a children's playground in the wood. In another part of the village you can play tennis or practise kart racing. There are also some ponds (2 miles) where you can dive or waterski with a lift. In winter you can skate in an ice pavilion or on our(smaller)own pond. It needs a 45 minutes by car to reach various ski resorts.

Who we are

  1. We are: Josef, married to Carmen for 16 years, our sons Daniel (14) and Christian (10) and our daughter Marisa (8). We have lived in this house and region for 8 years. Before that we lived in Graz. We moved to Zettling for the fresh air and tranquillity of rural life. Also it was important for us to stay not too far away from a bigger town.
    Josef works as a business consultant and psychotherapist and Carmen works as a housewife.
