Your holiday village at Lake Faaker See


Incredible variety, thanks to three countries and three cultures

Your holiday village at Lake Faaker See

The Dorf SCHÖNLEITN awaits with outdoor adventures. The charm of village life, combined with comfortable, serviced apartments and a love of nature. Whether you are looking for alpine adventures or some quiet time à deux, this is the place for you. There is hiking galore, from family walks up the Gerlitzen to ambitious tours in the Dobratsch Nature Park. Just arrive, settle down and feel cared about – exactly my vacation.

The mountain peaks around the holiday region of Villach offer incredible views across the magnificent mountain ranges of the Alpine-Adriatic region, the three-country triangle in the Province of Carinthia, and will make you want to explore them all. The Karawanken mountain range with the distinctive Mittagskogel forms a natural border and is Austria’s southernmost mountain range, a largely undiscovered natural space along the open border to Slovenia and Italy. Embedded between the Dobratsch Nature Park in the west and sunny Gerlitzenalpe in the north, near the Alpine city of Villach, lies turquoise-blue Lake Faakersee with its hidden, meandering reeds and secluded beaches. The outstanding location of the Hoteldorf Schönleitn, at the interface of three Alpine cultures, ensures unbeatable variety for your family holiday. The options for hiking and mountaineering in Carinthia’s southernmost corner are as multi-faceted as the landscape.
