Whether you are looking for an active or a relaxing holiday in a natural environment, at the Mooshäusl you are in the right place. You will experience tradition, friendliness and rustic local life-styles. Also for culinary experiences there are many good local 'Gasthäuser'. From the house there are lots of things to do without getting into the car, such as tours in the mountains with a barbeque in a mountain hut; an instructive walk through the forest; a children s wood workshop; the pilgrimage walk of St, Hemma - the local saint; and lots of wonderful walks in the National Park. Further afield you can drive to the lakes of Millstättersee, Weissensee, and Wörthersee, the castles of Hochosterwitz and Landskron, the famous village of Heiligen Blut/Grossglockner, the Obir grottoes and stalactites. and many others

Summer activities: The mild climate of the Southern Alps is ideal for hiking in the National Park of the Nock Mountains. Relax in the crystal clear mountain air and beautiful countryside where the flora and fauna invite you to explore, discover and reflect.

Wellness and Spa: Bad Kleinkirchheim was the first resort in Austria to be awarded with the “Certificate of Alpine Wellness” for its exceptional services and can certainly be counted as one of the very best when it comes to pampering and looking after your wellbeing. This wellness spa in the Nock Mountains offers all you need for that perfect holiday of relaxation and recuperation.

Water is a vital element which helps us to keep fit. Few sports other than swimming do so much for the figure and fitness while being very gentle and easy on the joints.

Second visit

  • 5 of 5

This was my second visit to the Mooshausl and just a good as previously. Everything in the apartment was as the previous year, clean, comfortable and well presented. The locals in restaurants and shops remembered us and greeted us like old friends which was a nice touch. Apart from skiing, this year we managed to fit in time for a walk in the immediate locality which showed how attractive the area is; such a walk could be varied according to the time available. We walked for about two hours just enjoying the scenery. I hope for a third visit and definitely reccommend the Mooshausl to skiers and walkers alike as well as those who just want to chill in a lovely part of a lovely country.

This is a delightful apartment in a charming village surrounded by gorgeous unspoilt countryside (lovely views of the Dolomites on the way from the airport). The apartment is well appointed, comfortable beds, plenty of cupboard space, good shower room, with everything necessary in the kitchen and living room. The contact telephone number provided any advice needed (useful for restaurant advice).

The skiing is excellent and varied in attractive tree dotted pistes and the ski pass covers a number of villages. The only instructor we used was very friendly and produced good results. Although we did not have beginners with us I think the terrain would be perfect for learners.

There are good restaurants in the village and even better if you are prepared to go a little further. They mostly only take cash. The locals are very friendly and interested in their visitors.

I highly recommend the Mooshausl and hope to visit again.

Mooshausl - Gnesau

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming apartment with good views in a quiet and pretty part of Austria - and in really easy access from Klagenfurt. Spacious and easy for four people to enjoy and room for more. The interior is classic Austrian and adds to the charm. Everything was as described, clean and well maintained. There was plenty of help as regards the locality and extra advice on hand via telephone.

The excellent ski resorts for all levels are close by (nearest 8 minutes) and everyone friendly and helpful. Very good food in the neighbourhood and we can't wait to return.

Einfach herrlich, wie daheim!

  • 5 of 5

Einfach herrlich!

Wirklich wunderschöne Ferienwohnung in alleinstehendem Haus und genügend Platz für 6!

Alles war da, gemütlicher Schwedenofen, 2 schöne Schlafzimmer mit Vollholzmöbel, gute Betten, auch im Wohnzimmer, ein angenehm großer Esstisch, und nach einem Skitag war die hauseigene Sauna im Kellergeschoss einfach ein Hochgenuss.

Die Wohnung ist in einem wunderbaren Zustand und kein bisschen abgewohnt.

Alles ist mit viel Liebe eingerichtet und es umfängt einen eine heimelige, geborgene Atmosphäre wenn man die Wohnung betritt.

Die Skigebiete Bad Kleinkirchheim und Turracher Höhe sind tatsächlich nur 10 Minuten entfernt, Parkplätze ganz in der Nähe der Liftanlagen waren auch in der Hauptsaison ausreichend vorhanden. Die günstigsten Ski gab es bei Sport Christian in Bad Kleinkirchheim, wenn man sie online buchte.

Im etwa 500m entfernten Gnesau gibt es ein kleines Spar Lebensmittelgeschäft und Richtung Bad Kleinkrichheim einen großen Billa (6 min mit dem Auto), der zu den Ferien auch am Sonntag geöffnet ist.

Wenn es viel schneit ist das Car-Port sehr angenehm und der unverbaute Blick vom Balkon über das Tal bei Gnesau eine Freude.

Alles in allem eine absolut zu empfehlende Winterferienwohnung, wenn man die kurze Autofahrt zu den Skigebieten nicht scheut. Der Kontakt mit den Besitzern und der Hausverwalterin vor Ort war sehr herzlich und unkompliziert.

Fahren Sie hin, wir haben schon jetzt für nächstes Jahr wieder gebucht!

Owner's Response: Sehr geehrter Herr Schuh, Wir freuen uns so sehr, dass es Ihnen bei uns im Mooshäusl so gut gefallen hat . Herzlichen Dank für die nette Bewertung. Hoffe wir sehen Sie bald bei uns wieder Mit freundlichen Grüssen Marguerite

Es war so schö Mooshäusl !

  • 5 of 5

Es war ein sehr erholsamer Urlaub in diesem Ferienhaus - schon die Buchung mit der Vermieterin war außerordentlich angenehm, es erfolgte eine sofortige und sehr freundliche Rückmeldung ob Buchung okay ist und auch bei der An- und Abreise wurden die Formalitäten durch die Hausverwalterin äußerst freundlich und verlässlich durchgeführt. Die Ferienwohnung ist sehr sauber und total gemütlich eingerichtet, die kleine Küche ist reichlich mit Koch- und Essgeschirr ausgestattet, die Abende im Wohnzimmer mit den tollen Holzofen, den großen Esstisch und den verlockenden Sofas sind so richtig angenehm für einen wunderbarer Tagesausklang - bei Schönwetter am Balkon sitzend den blauen Himmel zum Frühstück genießen - in diesem Haus ist einfach ALLES möglich! Das Haus liegt an einem wunderbar ruhigen Platz und doch sehr zentral - alle Annehmlichkeiten in der sehr gastfreundlichen Gemeinde Gnesau (ein toller kleiner Lebensmittelmarkt , zwei Gasthäuser mit vielen regionalen Schmankerln, Spazier- und Wanderwege) sind ohne Auto erreichbar, sehr interessante Ausflugsziele sind in relativ kurzer Zeit erreichbar. Für unseren Hund war es ebenso ein Paradies...... Wiesen, Wald und Wasser in unmittelbarer Haus Nähe und dazu stundenlange Almwanderungen in den Kärntner Bergen. Der Aufenthalt in diesem Haus bzw. in dieser Ferienwohnung hat unserer Familie sehr gutgetan und wir haben uns total wohlgefühlt und werden im Herbst auf alle Fälle wiederkommen. Ein herzliches Dankeschön für diesen gelungenen Urlaub an die Vermieterin und an die Hausverwalterin.

Wunderschöne Wohnung in herrlicher Lage

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung ist sehr, sehr gemütlich mit Holzofen, geschmackvoller Einrichtung und einer sehr gut eingerichteten Küche mit allen elektrischen Geräten. Das Haus liegt in sehr ruhiger Lage mit wunderbarem Blick auf die Berge. Auch wenn das Wetter mal schlecht sein sollte, hält man es an einem gemütlichen Kaminfeuer (Holz liegt bereit) gut in der Wohnung aus. Durch die Ruhe haben wir wunderbar tief -in den großen Betten mit guten Matratzen- geschlafen.

Das Auto findet in einem geräumigen Carport Platz.

Die Umgebung lässt alle Möglichkeiten zu, wie Wandern, kulturelle Ziele besuchen oder Baden in einen der Seen. Eine Woche reichte bei Weitem nicht, sich alles anzuschauen, was wir uns vorgenommen hatten.
