About Gustav Clarkson
We are musicians who depend upon mountains and water for inspiration, which accounts for our love of this house. I grew up in England but my Austrian mother whisked us off to the Austrian Alps every school holiday. We are professionally active in Britain, so we come to the house whenever there is a window in the diary! So the house is also a family home.
Gustav Clarkson purchased this House in 2014
Why Gustav Clarkson chose Millstatt
I holidayed at this property frequently as a teenager and in my twenties. The house belonged to my uncle and aunt. It is unique. When my cousin put it up for sale recently it could not be resisted! The panoramic view of the mountains is unforgettable, and we loved swimming in the lake. It is also a suntrap.
What makes this House unique
The view is unrivalled and extends from East to West. It is a very special spot. The weather varies from warm to hot in the summer and is remarkably clement in winter. Mist often rises from the lake after dawn, creating clouds below us whilst we are enjoying the morning sun.

Schöne Ferien in einem hervorragend ausgestatteten Haus
