About the property

The Dower House at Ottmanach is perfect for your holidays at any time of year!

The Dower House at Ottmanach, situated in the heart of Carinthia is perfect for holidays at any time of year!

Carinthia's historical heritage is hard to miss and a source of endless expeditions and wonder.

The 600 year old Ottmanach Estate in the heart of Carinthia lies in idyllic unspoilt countryside at the foot of the Magdalensberg with stunning views over the mountains bordering Slovenia and Italy, both only 45 minutes away by car. The Estate's origins date back to the 12th Century.

The two apartments in the 16th century vaulted Dower House at Ottmanach have recently been restored and modernised with new bathrooms and kitchens. They also have a washing machine and music player and TVs. Both are now decorated with antique Austrian furniture, carpets and clocks with local paintings of the the mountains and churches.

The Estate's lake has its own hut, boat, jetty, picnic table and BBQ, all available for the use of people taking the holiday flats.

Holidays in the heart of Carinthia: Carinthia - s a meeting point between East and West this province bears grand witness to a fascinating 2000 year old history of Roman occupation, Turkish invasions and the grandeur of the Austrian Hungarian Empire.

The winters can be very cold with high snowfall ; so skiing ,toboganning , and skating on the lakes all form a regular part of winter life .

The summers in these southern latitudes close to Italy are very hot - often 30 degrees centigrade.Carinthia is dotted with beautiful lakes ideal for swimming , sailing and waterskiing .

Silence and relaxation: Relax in idyllic unspoilt countryside at the foot of the Magdalensberg with stunning views over the mountains bordering Slovenia and Italy.

Enjoy Carinthia, enjoy its food!: Enjoy excellent food.

Good food is a part of any proper holiday and the family owned and run gasthauses of the neighbourhood are excellent. Their inspiration comes from the myriad influences of the great central european Habsburg empire : Goulasch from Hungary, cakes and pastries from Vienna, knoedels, schnitzels, a great baking tradition, trout and crayfish from the freshwater lakes and streams, and pasta and salads influenced by nearby Italy.

Stunning location and great accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Great support and one of the best places we have stayed. Lots of space and stunning gardens and pool. Far enough out of Klagenfurt to have the peace and quiet but still very clear close. Day trips to Bled and Ljubljana easy to manage. Definitely will go back again!

Traumhafte Ferien auf dem Gut

  • 5 of 5

Große Ferienwohnung, ideal für größere Familien, im ehemaligen Gesindehaus eines barocken Schlosses. Da der Besitzer nicht anwesend war, konnten wir den gesamten Park inkl. großem, stets sauberen Pool und privatem Tennisplatz nutzen! Alle Mitarbeiter des Gutes waren unglaublich freundlich und zuvorkommend, es war ein traumhafter Aufenthalt.

Zwembad dat niet gebruikt mag worden!

  • 2 of 5

Het huis voldoet aan de omschrijving, het is wel spartaans en vochtig. Het internet funktioneert niet of nauwelijks en moet gedeeld worden met de andere huurders. Het huis was niet goed schoon gemaakt. Na onze eerste verblijfdag is ons medegedeeld dat het zwembad tijdens ons hele verblijf niet gebruikt mocht worden. Dit was op de internetsite niet vermeld. Onze keuze was primair een huis met zwembad. Wij raden deze woning niet aan wanneer u gebruik wilt maken van het zwembad.

Owner's Response: Wir möchten uns sehr herzlich bei unseren Feriengästen für die Unannehmlichkeiten vor Ort entschuldigen. In dieser Ferienwoche war die Familie vor Ort. Nach einem Todesfall wollte die Familie/Eigentümer sehr privat im Poolbereich sein und daher war die Benützung des Pools nicht möglich. Wir haben den Feriengästen angeboten, das 5 Autominuten entfernte Gemeindebad zu besuchen - natürlich hätten wir die Kosten dafür übernommen. Außerdem haben wir den Gästen 20% vom Reisepreis in Bar vor Ort zurückerstattet. Für die entgangenen Urlaubsfreuden haben wir uns entschuldigt und wirklich versucht, das Beste aus dieser Situation zu machen. Leider haben es die Gäste abgelehnt, das Gemeindebad zu besuchen. Dazugekommen ist auch, dass das Wetter nicht sehr schön war und nicht wirklich zum Baden eingeladen hat.

Carinthia's historical heritage is hard to miss and a source of endless expeditions and wonder.Here are but a few of the most notable examples :

Maria Saal - one of the most beautiful Romanesque cathedrals in this part of Europe .

Hochosterwitz- one of the greatest Citadels in Central Europe that kept the invading turks at bay and was the model for the Snow White and Seven Dwarfs Disney film .

The Carinthian Summer - a world famous programme of opera, theatre and music that takes places around the Ossiacher See .

The Magdalensberg Roman remains - above Ottmanach on top of the Magdalensberg lies the former capital of the Roman province of Noricum.

Klagenfurt-Carinthia's lovely capital.
