About the property

Heinke's Haus

Two apartments in St Oswald (1300 m) in the same chalet . The ski lift (also open for much of the summer ) is 600+ m away. The apartments are separate but connected by an in house stairway. They work well together and are ideal for those wishing to holiday together with the option of 'own time'. BKK is a ski resort 20+ lifts, 90 km of runs and so much more including Spa Baths July 2017 we are looking forward to sampling the new facilities in the refurbished St Kathrein Baths . Summer in St Oswald can also be a wonderful experience - mountain walks or biking, summer flowers, golf, tennis, lakes ,spas and touring all make for relaxation and enjoyment.

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.

A Place in the Mountains

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from our 4th consecutive stay and enjoyed every minute.

The property is so convenient for a walking holiday. A short stride to the cable car and local Restaurants with great hospitality. We particularly enjoy our meals at the Sportalm and every one should walk along side stream down to Hutters for Coffee & Cakes.

A visit to the Larchenhutte is also a must!

The apartments are always clean and well maintained and great personal service always.

We have already booked for next year. Can't wait.

Goßzügige Wohnung in toller Lage

  • 5 of 5

Von Weihnachten über Silvester 2013/14 haben wir (6 Personen) unsere Skiferien in diesem Appartement verbracht. Heinke und John Felton haben eine sehr schöne und große Wohnung, die zudem super geschnitten und ausgestattet ist.

Die Lage ist 1a: ruhig und 5 Min. Fußweg (eben!) zur Seilbahn – mit Skidepot im am Lift der glatte Luxus!

Wenn es uns mal wieder nach Kärnten zum Skifahren verschlägt, kommen wir gerne wieder.

Über Silvester 2010/11haben wir mit unserer großen Familie ( 8 Personen ) den Winterurlaub in dem großzügigen, freundlichen und hellen, durch und durch komfortablen Appartement von Heinke und John Felton voll genossen. Es liegt schön ruhig, der nahe Wasserfall rauscht beruhigend im Hintergrund. Zu Fuß sind es nur 5 min. bis zur Seilbahn. Leider verfügt der kleine Ort über keine Einkaufsmöglichkeit abgesehen von dem guten Service der beiden Sportgeschäfte. Dafür sind gute

Supermärkte in BKK. - Wir kommen gerne wieder!

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.
