The Faaker Lake close to Villach is the perfect place for beach and active holidays. In summer, the light blue coloured lake at the foot of the Mittagskogel warms up to 28 degrees. The beach area at Faak is a 2-3 minutes ride away from our house and it is free of charge for our guests. You can swim in the lake or rent stand-up paddle boards. There are many different hiking trails for beginners and advanced hikers all along the lake . The Kanziani mountain, one of the most spectacular climbing mountains of carintia, with over an 300 different tours and up to 400 rope length, can be reached within 10 minutes. Our house is located next to a beautiful forrest and a lot of mountainbike trails pass by it.

The region Villach is also wonderful to visit in the winter months. A 15 km drive from our house away are two great skiing areas to choose from: the Gerlitzen Alpe and the Dreiländereck. Non-skiers can cross-country ski, ice-skate, or do curling. Several cross-country slopes pass directly by Faak, and some of the lakes around Faak freeze in the winter and thus allow activities mentioned above on the ice.

The big garden surrounding our house has sun chairs and hammocks for our guests and has a view over the mountains. For our little guests we have a playground. Badminton rackets, a table tennis court , and other type of sports equipment guarantee that it will never be boring for you at the Karawanken lodge.

Every apartment has either one or two bed rooms each with a 180cm x 200 cm bed and a living room with a sleeper sofa (140x200 cm), as well as a bathroom and a fully furnished kitchen. Every apartment has either a big balcony with view over the forrest or a terrace facing the garden with view towards the mountains.

There is also a restaurant on site where you can enjoy either half pension or order a la carte. A bar with sky TV offering drinks and cocktails is open in the evening.
