About Linda Koop
Me and my husband love living like modern 'nomads'! We change our home base every few years and explore as much of the world as we can. At the moment we live in India, an amazingly diverse country and also my husbands native country. I am from the Netherlands. We love going out into nature, especially the mountains! One of our dreams have come true with building our own chalet in the Alps in Austria: the Wanderfalk Lodge! An ideal place to explore the great outdoors in the Alps and spend time with family and friends. As we will not always be there, we hope others will enjoy their experience in the Chalet and the amazing Alps just as much as we do!
Linda Koop purchased this Chalet in 2018
Why Linda Koop chose Mühlbach am Hochkönig
From the moment we saw the beautiful Hochkönig valley, we loved it and knew it was the place for a perfect getaway with family and friends. Hochkönig is an amazing year round destination. In winter it offers world-class skiing and fabulous ski huts and in summer there is everything you could wish for in a great summer escape!
What makes this Chalet unique
The chalet has been designed to accommodate 17 adults very comfortably. The large living space has a lounge area with a fire place and a 4 meters long dining table with gorgeous mountain views. The living space is large enough for everyone to sit together for a meal or for a drink. And not to forget the private sauna, XL bathtub with view and amazing large & sunny outdoor lounge!
