My house is in an estate 4 km Southwest of the outskirts of Vienna from where you can go for lovely walks. There is a big and quiet annex room with 2 double beds. If needed one more room can be used. Enchanting garden and swimming pool. Free parking.
Staying in my house is especially suitable for people who love nature und want to relax after a lot of sightseeing especially in Vienna. There are wonderful walks in the Vienna Woods nearby. A visit to a Heurigen in picturesque Perchtoldsdorf (15 minutes by car) is almost a must. There are 40 wine farmers who sell their own wine and their wives and mothers make delicious local food. I would also recommend driving the "Weinstraße" to the spa Baden. passing the famous wine village Gumpoldskirchen. Burgenland which is Austria's Eastern province is famous for its nature park "Seewinkel" , the big lake Neusiedlersee (2 thirds Austria, one third Hungary) where bicycles can be rented. Another option is driving to Sopron in Hungary (one hour) where you feel the atmosphere of the ancient Austrian-Hungarian Empire. Many Austrian ladies go there to either have their hair done or for a cosmetic treatment or even to consult a dentist. If you like hiking you go South and in about an hour you get to Puchberg or Reichenau from where you can do wonderful hikes on Lower Austrian highest mountains Schneeberg and Rax. You can go up by cable car or special train.
As parking in Vienna is difficult or expensive I would recommend driving to Liesing (8km) or taking the bus and leave the car in an inexpensive P&R place. By train you can easily reach the city of Vienna in 25 minutes.
Toegang voor gasten
The kitchen can be used if wanted, there are two bathrooms and wifi in the main house, 3 guests can be accommodated. Regarding the annex where you will be staying you should know that you have to step out a few meters outside into the garden in order to get to the bathroom which is in the main house. Most guests don't mind at all, but for elderly people especially in winter it might be a feature to consider. The advantage of this situation is that you enjoy complete privacy in your annex which is furnished in vintage style.
Interactie met gasten
If wanted I can give a lot of Information to my guests about Vienna and its surroundings, It is completely up to my guests if they want more or less interaction. If wanted I can give them a tour in Vienna or along the wineroad which leads through picturesque villages till the spa Baden for 50€. Another possibility would be to go to our biggest lake in Burgenland (70€) or even to the historical town of Sopron in Hungary for the same price.
Andere dingen waar je op moet letten
When at home II can offer my guests a varied and substantial breakfast according to their wishes.
I expect tht guests are friendly and natural. I accept Dogs in the annex, but not in the main house as I have an Indian student staying with me who has a dog phobia.
When my daughter is here wanting to relax in the garden after her strenuous work as a tour guide in Vienna please don't use the garden. This will happen about twice a week in the warm season. At other times you are welcome to enjoy my garden too.
I am a mother of 5 and have 9 grandchildren and 3 greatgrandchildren.. I used to be an English and French teacher. After my retirement in 2000 I worked for 15 years as an activity organiser in Marbella, Spain during the winter. I am also president of a charity in Kerala-Souh India. Among other projects we support girls from poor families in their studies so that they will gain self-confidence and one day have proper work. I am also involved in helping refugees in my village. I love meeting people, gardening, dancing, singing, walking, travelling, nature, museums, architecture. That I love children goes without saying. I love having my family around, but now I live with one Indian student. My family is spread all over the world. I love Vienna and its environment which is very beautiful and I like having guests and giving them advice what to do and where to go.
