This idyllic alpine lake region is the perfect setting for this vacation home rental in Austria. Featuring the modern Alpine aesthetics that draw from the rustic mountain chalets of the past, we love the expansive spaces, warm wood and the sharp contemporary take on country living.
Situated along the picturesque shores of Lake Weissensee in Carinthia, this vacation home rental in Austria is part of a former sawmill that was transformed into a chic contemporary compound. Simple, pristine and modern, the structure is positioned to take advantage of the gorgeous lake and mountain views. Completed in 2012 by Austrian architect Peter Jungmann, the property was designed as an all season recreational retreat that shares the space with three other apartments within the complex. A striking “Badehütte Weissensee” (bath-house) was added along the shoreline as a companion structure to the property and is the recipient of the 2007 Carinthian Timber Construction Prize and the 2008 Building Prize of the Province of Carinthia.
Composed almost entirely of wood inside and out, much of the timber is locally sourced, some from the weathered wooden docks along the shore. Featuring soaring open interior spaces with bright natural light supplemented with large skylights, the house is immaculately and sparingly laid out with a mixture of rustic-contemporary style and warm elegance. The sleek linear lines and dominant use of wood are contrasted with metal elements such as the fireplace facades and purlins and each level offers multiple views over the picturesque landscape.
With a fully equipped state of the art kitchen, two bedrooms and two additional sleeping areas, the apartment sleeps up to seven and comes equipped with a sauna.
Projecting out over the Mühlbach stream from the living room, the deck is the place to dine in warm months immersed in this idyllic alpine setting. Or, head down to the bath house to enjoy the property’s private shoreline and lakeside beach which is one of the largest in the area with a playground, sun loungers and lovely shade trees included in the price.
WLAN-Hotspot, Satellite/LCD flat screen TV. Housekeeping and state of the art kitchen and amenities. Housekeeping and laundry facilities.
The Weissensee lake region in the Gailtal Alps of Carinthia is the largest natural ice surface in Europe. Frozen solid from mid-December to early March, it’s a massive wonderland for winter sports. In warmer climes, you can go boating on the shores of nearby Mühlbach brook or enjoy the many mountain trails and woods right on your doorstep.
