Unforgettable Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week at this gorgeous home. We selected this house solely on the pictures on the website and it was everything we could have expected and so much more. We had the best time imaginable in this breath-taking home, with every convenience imaginable. It is very convenient to great hiking as well as exploring the amzing region. It is a perfect place to base your stay in the region. Judith provided all the information designed to make our trip stress free. I would (and already have) recommended it to others and hope to get back there next summer.

Stylish and cozy winter ski hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at Almhaus Deluxe. My husband and I were there during summer for hiking and to escape the heat in Munich. We liked it so much that we went back with friends from London for skiing. We were there last weekend during record setting snowfall. The owners were very supportive to make sure the snowplows came and we had all the comforts we would need. The underfloor heating and wood fireplace made the place so cozy while the snow piled up outside. Our friends from London were very impressed by all the decor and luxury details of the house, including the sauna area and spacious bathrooms. Turracherhoehe is beautiful and convenient for skiing and winter walks, with several restaurants and the town within walking distance. You can ski directly from the house, so it was easy for the skiiers and non-skiiers in our group to meet for lunch. We will definitely be back!!

Stylish and cozy hideaway for summer and winter

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an early autumn hiking weekend. The area has well marked trails for hiking and a summer sled run that was a real thrill! The Almzeit Restaurant at the top of the sled run/ski lift has a great atmosphere and excellent food. The Almhaus Deluxe was even more beautiful than we imagined from the photos. We felt immediately at home. All details are very well thought through and the place is bright, cheerful and in pristine condition. There are lovely and creative design details throughout. The house has high tech touches such as the latest lighting and sound system, as well as automatic shutters, all simple to use. We absolutely loved making fires in the evening and cooking meals together in the luxury kitchen, or having an afternoon coffee and cake on the patio. The sauna area was very spacious and included a shower, guest toilet and music - perfect after a day's hike. We ended up always shortening our hiking routes so we could get back early and enjoy the house. We are looking forward to our next stay, already booked, for a winter ski trip with friends!

Alm-Traum in luxuriösem Stil

  • 5 of 5

Diese Skiurlaubwoche im Almchalet war definitiv ein Erlebnis der besonderen Art :0) Das wunderschöne Ambiente, die herrliche Lage, die Gastfreundschaft von Judith, der Ausblick auf die Berge, die Sauna, die Möglichkeit die Wäsche direkt vor Ort zu versorgen, die Rückzugsmöglichkeiten für 8 Personen sowie die vielen, vielen liebevollen Inneneinrichtungsdetails haben diesen Urlaub zu einem unvergesslichen Erlebnis werden lassen! DANKE Judith dafür!

Dank der überkompletten Bestückung der Küche haben wir es kulinarisch auch richtig krachen lassen ;0) . Unsere Jüngste hat inzwischen stundenlang am Boden vor dem Kamin ihre Bauernhöfe aufgebaut, die Mittlere auf der Couch vor dem riesigen Glasfenster mit Blick auf die Bergspitzen geträumt und der Große mit meinem Mann die Sauna genossen!

Dank der Nähe zur Skipiste war das An-& und Abschnallen diesmal auch einfach nur ein Genuß! Besonders praktisch fanden wir den Eingangscode, so mussten wir diesmal keine Angst haben, dass unsere Kinder uns aussperren.

Abends die kalten Knochen nach dem Skivergnügen in der Wanne mit Blick auf die Piste ausklingen zu lassen, war auch ein besonderes Vergnügen!

Angaben zum Almchalet sind absolut korrekt, allerdings waren wir trotzdem beim Eintreffen über Charme dieser Unterkunft überwältigt. Es ist top sauber und gepflegt. Dank der Unterlagen vor Ort von Judith, sowie die Mails und Gespräche ist die Betreuung sehr unkompliziert und prompt.

DANKE Judith für diese unvergesslichen Tage in Eurem Alm-Chalet! Es hat uns soooo gut gefallen, dass wir bereits unsere Wunschwoche fürs kommende Jahr wieder fixiert haben!

Also kurzum: 5 x Super-Stern-Bewertung mit Extrabonus!!!!!

Vorweg:Besser geht es nicht !!! Die herrliche Zeit begann mit einer sehr netten Kontaktaufnahme im Vorfeld, ging weiter in einem warmherzigen und sehr persöhnlichen Empfang vor Ort durch die sehr freundliche und hilfsbereiten Hausdame und per handschriftlichen Brief der Eigentümerin in dem sie uns einen herrlochen Aufenthalt wünschte ,uns wie Freunde aufnahm und sehr köstlichen Willkommensgeschenken. Man kommt in das außerordentlich geschmackvoll eingerichtete Haus und ist sofort tiefenentspannt, lässt sich durch seinen Duft umgehend in Entspannungsmodus versetzen. Alles in dem Haus ist hochwertig und mit Liebe und Bedacht ausgewählt. Wir haben es sofort geliebt und uns täglich daran erfreut - leider war der Aufenthalt von nur einer Woche viel zu kurz - für immer wäre besser gewesen!!!

Das das Haus total super sauber bis in die kleinste Ecke und in einem erstklassigen Zustand war brauche ich wohl kaum noch zu erwähnen...

Auch die Versorgung mit Lebensmitteln ist unproblematisch...Ein guter Bäcker liefert das Frühstück, schöne Hütten wie die Almzeit verpflegen die Familie am Mittag , nachmittags lockt die Meizetihütte mit Kaiserschmarren auf der Sonnenterrasse und Abend kann man in den umliegenden Hotels Essen gehen und zudem deren Spas mieten....Hotel Hochschober und Jägerwirt....nur möchte man gar nicht aus dem herrlichen Haus. Daher kann man sich aus dem Bauernmarkt mit sehr schmackhaften Spezialitäten des Umlandes versorgen .... Köstlich. ein Lädchen vor Ort versorgt zudem mit dem nötigsten. keiner muss ins Auto steigen und einkaufen fahren. Wir haben die ganze Zeit die Sonne und den Schnee genossen - und die geschmackvolle Athmosphäre des Hauses.

Ich empfehle das Haus uneingeschränkt und mit Begeisterung weiter - aber nur an All diejenigen die nicht zur selben Zeit wie ich hinfahren möchten !!! Und nur an all diejenigen die das Haus liebevoll und sorgfältig behandeln ;-) Ich freu mich schon, wenn ich das nächste Mal hinfahren darf!

Liebe Judith, lieber Ziga,

wir möchten uns noch einmal ganz herzlich für den tollen Urlaub in Eurem wunderschönen Haus bedanken. Es war für uns ein absoluter Traum - Winter + Ski Urlaub wie wir ihn so noch nie erlebt haben. Soooo viel Schnee in einer so schönen Landschaft und in einem so tollen Haus. Es war Erholung pur. Wir konnten zwar nur 2 Tage ( Di. + Fr. ) bei bestem Sonnenwetter Skifahren, aber die anderen Tage, wo es so viel geschneit hat, konnten wir wunderschöne Schneewanderungen in einer traumhaften Winterlandschaft machen (das geht in den meisten Skigebieten nicht, da diese meist nur auf Skifahrer ausgerichtet sind und nur ganz wenige Wanderwege haben) und immer die Freude anschließend wieder in Eurer Traumhaus zu kommen mit all den schönen Ausblicken in die Winterwelt.

Guido und Ingrid

Skigebiet Turrcherhöhe
Car: recommended

Wonderfully quiet the Turracherhöhe is on the first 763 meters. On the border of the Austrian federal states of Carinthia and Styria. The luxury Almhouse is on first 850 m overlooking the Turrachersee, surrounded by larch and stone pine forests and the Nock Mountains National Park. Located directly on the ski slopes and hiking trails here is the perfect starting point to experience wonderful days in winter as in summer.

The infrastructure of the resort include a bank, some sports and souvenir shops as well as a shop that offers regional specialties. 1985 written at the suggestion of local residents an ecumenical worship.

In the summer, hiking offer by the Nock Mountains and at the 3 lakes. Just like golf, with 15 golf courses within 90 min. The next one is the Golf Course Bad Kleinkirchheim, only 15 minutes away. Mountain biking, and fly fishing, a nature park, a year-round toboggan run and of course the beautiful mountain lake offer a wonderful setting for active and relaxing days for the whole family.

About the Nock Mountains National Park

Since 1987, the 184 square kilometer area in the Carinthian Nock Mountains National Park, and is thus under national treasure. The aim is to transform the national park in the next few years in a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Characteristic of the National Park are the rounded, gentle, grassy Nock Mountains that reach heights of up to 2 441 meters (monkshood).

Due to the special climatic and vegetative conditions on the Turracherhöhe pollen have no chance. However, dust mites and molds have the low humidity at this altitude no breeding ground. An additional recovery factor offers the pine. As studies have proven, the pine wood has an extremely positive effect on the body and well-being. This is demonstrated for instance by a lower heart rate in stressful situations or by the bacteriostatic effect. The Turracherhöhe is one of the largest pine forests in Austria.

Attractions near the Turracherhöhe:

Feldkirchen, near the regional capital in the heart of Carinthia is also a popular shopping destination. Worth visiting are also the ruins Dietrichsteinplatz and Prägrad.

Schloss Albeck is near Feldkirchen. The baroque castle was built on a former castle and from the stones of the castle. The present entrance is the old castle gate. The restored castle houses a fine restaurant and a gift shop.

Tamsweg im Lungau (Salzburg) with the Sanctuary of St. Leonhard was one of the late Middle Ages to the most visited pilgrimage sites in Austria. Today impress the historic market, beautifully preserved old town houses and the late gothic pilgrimage church.

Murau (Styria), the medieval town invites you to stroll or a cultural visit, such as the Baroque castle Murau with Knight's Hall and a large prison. Known far and wide is the beer from the brewery Murauer.

Klagenfurt, the capital of Carinthia is situated about 60 kilometers away. Worth seeing are among others the pretty old town with the dragon (the symbol of the city), the Museum of Modern Art Carinthia and Robert Musil Literature Museum (Robert Musil was born in Klagenfurt), which is also the well-known Carinthian literary figure Ingeborg Bachmann is devoted to.

Villach, the second largest city in Carinthia is situated about 60 kilometers away. The Old Town impressed with buildings from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.
