About John or Heinke Felton
Heinke is German I am English and we have been married 48 years We are still trying to retire. We live in Dubai in the winter (helping with 3 of our grand children) 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 fields. That and the sound of the waterfall and I knew Heinke would love it.
John or Heinke Felton purchased this Apartment in 2004
Why John or Heinke Felton chose Bad Kleinkirchheim
We love our 2 very different Austrian Flats. The Garden Wohnung is more traditional , cosy and a bit eccentric whilst the Family flat is more modern and has more room. Both are places to relax ,drink in the scenery and enjoy.

The Garden Wohnung
We just returned from a beautiful vacation in St. Oswald. We stayed in the garden flat and it was perfect. We woke up in the mornings and had tea on the patio looking at the waterfall. Then, we would go off on one adventure or another (I recommend Monkey Mountain for sure). In the evening we would either eat at one of the restaurants nearby, recommended to us by John and Heinke, or eat at the flat. Every recommendation given to us was amazing. The flat was clean and very comfortable. It was like being at home rather than in an impersonal hotel. John and Heinke could not have been more friendly and helpful. We feel like we are part of their family now.
We will definitely be going back!
Io e la mia famiglia ci siamo divertiti molto, nell'area di S.Osvaldo ci sono molte attrative turistiche la montagna delle scimmie , il bellissimo parco/zoo a Rosegg ( in parte all'interno di un castello medievale) e la cava di granato (dove abbiamo potuto "picconare" alcune gemme).Abbiamo particolarmente apprezzato la compagnia di John e Heinke!
Heinke's Haus: St. Oswald
Wir(10 Personen) haben unseren Urlaub in Heinkes Haus verbracht und haben uns dazu beide Apartments gemietet.
Die Apartments sind beide in einem Top Zustand, großzügig und sehr gepflegt. Für diese Lage (~500m vom Schilift entfernt) ist der Preis sehr günstig!
Einziger negativer Punkt - das Internet war die ganze Woche nicht verfügbar...
Ich kann Heinkes Haus ebenfalls nur weiterempfehlen!!!
Herzlichen Dank fuer eine so liebe Bewertung!
Haetten wir vom Internet problem gewusst, haetten wir ganz bestimmt versucht Ihnen zu helfen... obwohl wir wirklich keine Komputerexperten sind.
Der Zustand des Domizils war sehr sauber und gepflegt. Die Lage ideal, da einerseits Nähe zu Seilbahnen und auch die Aufstiege zu Bergwanderungen und Ausflügen direkt vor der Haustüre liegen. Idealer Ausblick in den Wald und die Berge. Kaminfeuer und Sauna runden das Gesamtkonzept ab. Betreuung durch die Vermieter war wirklich ausgezeichnet, sehr herzlich und stehen mit wertvollen Tipps zur Seite. Definitiv weiter zu empfehlen.
Romantisch und Ur-gemütlich
Wir haben gerade 5 wundervolle Tage in Heinkes Gartenappartement verbracht. Das Appartement ist sehr gemütlich und gut angelegt. Es gibt zwar kein eigenes Kinderzimmer, aber die Trennung durch einen Kasten ist optimal und ausreichend. Besonders genossen haben wir die Möglichkeit direkt im Appartement in die Sauna gehen zu können und nackt im Garten in den Schnee zu springen - Herrlich. Dazu rauscht etwas unterhalb der das fast gänzlich zugefrohrene Bächlein und der Wasserfall - muss auch im Sommer toll sein, beim Wasserfall zu grillen. Anschl. vor dem offenen Kamin entspannen, was gibt es schöneres. Die Entfernung zum Schilift wäre zu Fuß bewätligbar, wir sind bequem und mit dem Auto gefahren. Alles war rundherum perfekt! Ideale Unterkunft für Sommer und Winter
Bad Kleinkirchheim is in the valley below the village of St. Oswald. The valley is a ski and spa 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 .
Other Activities: Winter Sports, golf, tennis, walking hiking, rambling even ambling
Golf: Bad Kleinkirchheim has its own Golf course with several others in the area. Special arrangements allow purchase of cards allowing use of a selection of courses.
Ski: Bad Klienkirchheim is a resort with a proud history of excellent skiing. Heinke's Haus is approximately 600 metres from the Nationalpark Brunnachbahn gondola lift which is part of the complex of 26 lifts including a new one in 2016.. B.K.K caters for snow boarders and other winter sport activities. #Just a Note that in the summer we may well be able to help with baby sitting.
