Katie and Amelia
Our home is a family home. It was designed and built by Katie's parents in the 1970s. It is spacious and welcoming. Everyone says that the house has a great vibe. It's traditional, but it is called Austrian with a Twist because Katie lived in England for many years and Amelia is English, so their English sense of style is evident everywhere. Although the rooms do not have private bathrooms, we have a separate bathroom for guests only, and as we only let out three rooms, there is little chance of there being any problems. Please do not worry!
Hi, my name is Katie, I am an artist and jeweller. I love to cook and I love having people around me. I am warm and friendly. Hi, my name is Amelia, I am English and I love to make people feel at home, I also love meeting people from all over the world. I am a writer, teacher and a Shakespeare buff.
The valley is beautiful, clean, quiet, calm but magnificent. Wonderful views, wonderful countryside with great opportunities to go hiking, birdwatching, cycling or skiing. We are 3.5 hours from Venice and 3 hours from Vienna. There are the many beautiful lakes of Klagenfurt too and the city of Graz, which is a great place to visit. In the nearby town of Wolfsberg, you will find a good museum, a wonderful castle, some great shops and more.
