Our home

Newly and very tastefully furnished vacation studio right on the Lake Ossiach. Not big but neat and cosy, just right for a romantic couple. The comfortable living room easily turns into a bedroom simply by lowering the hidden murphy double bed. The modern kitchen has new appliances, a ceran stove and a microwave. Have breakfast in the morning sun on your balcony and enjoy the breathtaking views across the lake and its surrounding mountains. And if you really need space for 3, the sofa sleeps an additional person or a couple of kids. cable TV and high speed internet provided, parking in front of the house.

Who we are

  1. My name is Fritz, I am the owner of an International School of Languages Franchise (Inlingua), 56 years old, master's in economics, and Karin, 55 who works part time writing medical opinions for a doctor. We are a semi-retired couple who love to travel, although we feel privileged to live in an awsome area (Villach, just 10 minutes from this vacation apartment). We do not smoke, and there are no kids travelling with us. We have had almost 50 exchanges, gathering unforgettable impressions and meeting great people all over the world, and we will continue to do 3-4 exchanges each year (although we can't do them all...)

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The apartment house is located in a parklike area right on the lakeshore and offers all kinds of amenities you can imagine. Water sports like swimming, sailing, boating, windsurfing and many others. There are showers, toilets and changing cabins, all right at the beach. The huge recreational area (lawn) invites you to hang around in the sun, if you don’t decide for sporty activities. Tennis, volleyball, table tennis, soccer, playground for kids, boat storage, barbecue areas and much more, all within the resort. Access the walking or mountainbike trails passing by the house, take the challenge to go/ride either up the mountains, or take the easy trail that goes all around the lake (flat, approx. 30km). Or take a romantic cruise on the lake (some of them theme cruises, music, dancing, or all-you-can-eat buffet), with the ship station just around the corner.

Wheelchair-friendly access to everything. Free car parking, washers and dryers available. In the lobby, there is even a little shop that opens during season, where you can buy groceries or personal items without the need of leaving the house.

Located on the opposite side of the lake, only minutes away, there is the „Gerlitzen“, the center of mountains sports of the area. Accessible by a cable car that runs summer and winter, plus chairlifts to go even further. Walking, hiking, mountain biking, even a cart race track for kids.

Because of its perfect thermal conditions, the Gerlitzen has become the most popular base for the impressing para gliding adventures with dramatic views. In the air for half an hour or more, you'll be flying between the surrounding mountain peaks and across the lake before landing in the valley, with a difference in altitude of 1.400m. There are para gliding schools, and for beginners, also tandem flights are available.

In winter, the Gerlitzen is one of the best skiing resorts in the area, downhill and cross country, offering a total of 15 ski lifts, ski schools, a choice of nice restaurants and snugly ski huts to enjoy Gluehwein and Jagatee.

Villach, with its Mediterranean touch a meeting point of three cultures (Carinthian, Italian and Slowenian), is only minutes away. The city offers any kind of entertainment and shopping experiences. A bus station is near the house.

Drive for less than 30 minutes, and you’ll find yourself in Italy or in Slovenia. The nearest international airport Klagenfurt is only 40 km ( 30 miles) away, with easy transfer to your vacation home.

My secret tip: Surprise your partner with a very special day and invite him/her to a cappuccino on San Marco square in Venice!

I am not kidding: take the early bus from Villach to Venice, comfortably, relaxed and inexpensively, get off the bus directly at the Piazzale Roma, enjoy a romantic day in Venice and take the bus back home the same night!
