About our home

Our medieval house (beginning of the 17th century) lies in between the town walls of of the lovely small town St.Veit in Carinthia, Southern Austria.
It´s thick stonewalls are a natural way of airconditioning in the summertime. There is a large dining and living room as well as a large kitchen surrounded by lovely gardens and the city moat. The first and second floor include five bedroom, one on the very top overviewing the roofs of the medieval town of the duke. Our large and light house leaves enough convenient space for many People and though it´s set right in the middle of town, it´s a very calm and peaceful place to stay. Since we have five children ourselves you can be sure that it is a suitable place for children as well as just to be and relax.

More about us

  1. We are a nature loving nice family with five lovely daughters, aged between 11 and 16. Tara, our eldest daughter already likes to traveller with her friends, so we are looking for places to go with Mona (15), Mira (13) and the twins Rubina and Leila (11). Our working place, which is an institute for psychotherapy as well as life counseling and also offers apprenticeship and workshops in this field, is seated in the main plaza in town. We, Ulrich (49) and Judith (46) are highly interested in other cultures and cultural goods just as theatre, literature, music and dance. Exchanging houses is a new way of traveling for us and seems to be a great opportunity to get new impression of other countries. We are looking forward to meeting you and sharing the beauty of this great place with you!:)
