St Oswald: St Oswald is a village 6- 7 km up a well maintained tarmac road from the spa town of Bad Kleinkirchheim (BKK)which boasts 90 km + of ski runs, 2 thermal baths and a host of other attractions and facilities . You can ski, snowboard, hike,(for 100s of miles) bike, play golf, tour the Alps and lakes and above all relax. Italy and Slovenia are only an hour away.
St Oswald has the Nationapark Brunnachbahn gondola lift which is open during the ski season and much of the summer. This connects with (and is part of the BKK ski area) .St Oswald has a ski school, ski hire and a clutch of restaurants.
A car is recommended but the Ski bus which runs throughout the valley also serves the Village.
We do not have a shop but there are plenty of shops in BKK .
Those seeking a different nightclub everynight may be disappointed .
Heinke is German I am English and we have been married 46 years We are still trying to retire. We live in Dubai in the winter (helping with 3 of our grand children and managing a flat on the Palm, another in Ras al Khaimah and our new one in the twisted Cayan Tower . We come to Austria in the summer and you will understand why we called this retirement business Contrastescapes.
Sounds silly but I first saw the property in June and couldn't believe all the flowers in the next door fieldsthat and the sound of the waterfall and I knew Heinke would love it.
We love our 2 very different Austrian Flats. The Garden Wohnung is more traditional , cosy and a bit excentric whilt the Family flat is more modern and has more room.
Both are places to relax ,drink in the scenery and enjoy.
Places for Happy times
Bad Kleinkirchheim is in the valley below the village of St. Oswald. The whole valley is a ski resort. The area is beautiful with mountains rivers and lakes. To us St Oswald is the place to relax but both in summer and winter you can have the most active of holidays. Italy is just an hour away so give yourself the time to tour around but you may prefer to sit and watch 'our' waterfall. Hiking, golf, mountain biking spa baths and other attractions - the list goes on and on This is a place to explore and enjoy with cake shops, restaurants and a reputation for hospitality. The skiing is extensive and somehow there don't seem to be long queues for the lifts.
Ask us about driving through the Alps, bringing the car by train or flying to Klagenfurt , Salzburg or even Venice or Vienna e).
