About Marguerite Dewar Durie

Andrew and Marguerite live in Scotland . In 2008 theyhave bought their beloved Mooshausl in carinthia where they spend many wonderful summer and winter holidays. they also sublet both the whole hosue or just the apartment on the top flor.

Marguerite Dewar Durie purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Marguerite Dewar Durie chose Nockberge/Bad Kleinkirchheim

We saw the house and it smiled at us, two days later we put down the deposit and have never looked back, we absolutely love it.

What makes this apartment unique

We wanted a romantic house in the middle of nature and not in side a resort. Although Gnesau is very near to both the fantastic sking areas , it feels very rural and quiet here , whichwe like. Gnesau has many nice local restaurants and of course wonderful hiking and sport facilities.

Gemütliche Wohnung in toller Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zusammen mit unserem Hund die Urlaubswoche sehr genossen. Die Wohnung ist recht gemütlich in ruhiger Lage, Spazierwege starten dirket vor dem Haus, die Umgebung ist super für Auflüg aller Art, der Spar-Markt im Ort ist gut sortiert. Der Kontakt mit den Vermietern und der Hausverwalterin lief unkompliziert und reibungslos. Wir können die Wohnung nur empfehlen und kommen gerne wieder.

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.

Was Bilder nicht einfangen können!

  • 5 of 5

Natürlich sind Familien immer anders gestrickt und ob sich bei Ihnen das gleiche Geborgenheitsgefühl wie bei uns einstellen werden wird, können wir nicht versprechen- doch fühlten wir uns bei diesem unserem zweiten Aufenthalt im Mooshäusl bereits nach wenigen Stunden so, wie sonst erst nach einigen Urlaubstagen!

Alles ist da, gemütliche Couch, herrlicher Holzofen mit Sichtfenster, Vollholzmöbel in allen Zimmern, eine gut ausgestattete Küche und, was gibt es Besseres nach einem langen Skitag, sogar eine wunderbare Sauna mit Erlebnisdusche!

Die Ferienwohnung ist sehr sauber und alles wirkt gepflegt und in Schuss! Wir waren 6 Personen, 2 Erwachsene und unsere 4 Kinder und fanden in den 2 Schlafzimmern und der Schlafcouch im Wohnzimmer wunderbar Platz!

(Auch die Wohnzimmerschlafmöglichkeiten sind äußerst bequem)

Die benachbarten Skigebiete (Bad Kleinkirchheim/St. Oswald und Turrach) sind tatsächlich in 20 min bestens mit dem Auto zu erreichen, der nächste größere Supermarkt liegt direkt am Weg und ist keine 10 min entfernt!

Die Kommunikation mit Frau Dewar Durie und der Kontaktperson vor Ort war sehr angenehm und unkompliziert!

Die Schlüsselübergabe klappte wie vereinbart und es ist nicht übertrieben zu sagen, dass wir nur schweren Herzens wieder nach Hause fuhren! Wir haben bereits wieder für nächstes Jahr gebucht !

The village of Gnesau is situated in the region of the famous Nock Mountains in Carinthia an especially unspoiled part of Southern Austria. It offers many possibilities for sport and excursions in spring, summer, autumn and winter. The wonderful mountain countryside, with over 1000 idyllic and well planned and maintained hiking paths in the National Park are close by. In the winter the whole area is famous for its skiing. The Mooshäusl is situated 10 minutes walk from the village of Gnesau. There is a “Spar” shop and some excellent traditional restaurants in the village. It is a five minute wander to the nearest farmhouse where you can buy fresh milk, bread and cheese. Feldkirchen is the nearest larger town (18 minutes drive), Bad Kleinkirchheim (10 minutes drive) is a famous alpine spa with thermal baths for Wellness and cures. There are many other interesting destinations for excursions. There is a Post bus linking Gnesau with the resorts.

Other Activities: Cross country skiin, snowboarding, icescating, bowling, Winterwalking

Golf: The nearest 18 hole golf course, in Bad Kleinkirchheim, is 10 minutes drive away and there are 11 more golf courses in Carinthia. Well-groomed greens, lush fairways, breathtaking views over the landscape together with Carinthia's Mediterranean climate are what this, the most southern province of Austria, offers.

Ski: Ten minutes from the Mooshäusl is Bad Kleinkirchheim - a World Cup host, and close by are Turracherhöhe, St Oswald and Patergassen - over 160 km of linked pisted ski trails and Carinthia’s longest runs. There is extensive off-piste for skiers and snow-boarders and excellent instructors/guides, ski schools and kindergartens. There are many miles of cross-country skiing trails, some starting from right beside the Mooshäusl. This is the huge sun-kissed ski area of the Nock Mountains with snow from the beginning of December to the end of April and guaranteeing snow on the runs for the whole season are over 800 snow-making machines. Modern lifts scale to 2200m and the ski pass is valid throughout Carinthia. There is also sledging and night tobogganing. Superb panoramic views and traditional ski-huts add to the charm and popularity of this area.
