Our home

Our home is in Purkersdorf, a small town next to Vienna, the capital of Austria. It is less than 100 metres away from the place name sign „Vienna“ and about 15 km away from the historical city center of Vienna.

Purkersdorf is a nice village situated in the beautiful Vienna Woods.

The villa is located in a courtyard, surrounded by other residential buildings and the wood. We love the quiet and fresh air around here.
The next street, which leads to Vienna, is about 50 metres away from our home. It takes you only 1 Minute to the bus station and five minutes to the train-station.

Our flat of 90m2 has two bedrooms, a kitchen with eating place, a living room, a bathroom and a separate toilet.

The living room is equipped with a parquet floor, a sofa, a bio-ethanol fireplace and a flat-screen TV with SAT receiver. Over our terrace you can enter the garden, which surrounds the apartment.

The bedroom has a large double-bed. You have a nice view into the wood from here.

The kids-room includes a bed for one child and stuff to play. A mattress is available for a second child.

The bath has a bathtub and a big window, which makes it bright in there.
