Lake, woods and mountains... the perfect Holyday

Guest Review Award 2017 - Ferienhaus Bella Vista

                                         Enjoy a carefree holiday in a relaxation area

Thanks for showing interest in our apartments. We are Ank and Rob, your Dutch hosts during your stay in holiday house Bella Vista.

You reach the apartments via a dead end road, and our large garden of 2,000 sqm borders on a natural area. Early in the morning and at the end of the day you can see and hear deer, woodpeckers, owls, and cuckoos. Thanks to the sunny position there is a great diversity of flowers and plants. In the basement of our house we have a sauna with a relaxation area.

          You'll find all the ingredients to relax and gain new energy in this beautiful part of Carinthia.

Im Souterrain des Hauses befindet sich eine Sauna mit Entspannungsraum.

With the Nassfeld Card holiday you'll have free access in the summer season to the beach of lake Pressegger See, the cable cars in Nassfeld, and many other attractions!

                                         Winter offer: ski excursion in the skiing area of Nassfeld.

Our ski guide Bob offers our guests an excursion of two hours.

The lake with the most clear water and high temperature

Within a radius of one kilometre you'll reach lake Presseggersee and an Amusement park. With the "Nassfeld +Card Premium" you'll have free access to the beach of lake Pressegger See which is one of the warmest lakes in Europe where you can swim, sail and windsurf.

The area around the lake offers plenty of sporting opportunities like long hikes through the mountains, cycling along the river Gail, and mountain biking on mountain trails full of challenges! The unspoiled nature of the surrounding mountains are of breathtaking beauty.

Cable car Milennium Express effortlessly takes you to the summit at nearly 2,000 metres. For children (and their parents) the summer toboggan run, the Aqua Trail, and the NTC Outdoor Park are real favorites.

An absolute highlight is a walk through the canyon Garnitzenklamm. With good, sturdy walking shoes, bad weather equipment, and a map you'll start an unforgettable journey of 2½ hours, with a length of about 4 kilometres across 9 bridges!

Skiing in Nassfeld


Who are Ank and Rob?

We knew Austria from years of skiing holidays and hiking in the summer. We're both sporty, energetic, and love a challenge. In 2014 this brought us to Hermagor at lake Pressegger See in Austria. We sold our home in Harderwijk (the Netherlands) to start a new adventure together with our dog Bonnie: to hire out holiday apartments.

Who is Rob Marcelis?

"I am optimistic by nature, sporty, and patient. With my electronics education I have been particularly active in the sale of microelectronics. This brought me to continents like Asia and America. I also love skiing and DIY. During a burnout I started earning qualifications to become a ski instructor. Back in my old job, I came to the conclusion that I wanted a different approach. I did quit my job and moved to Austria in 2014".

Who is Ank Schutz?

"I am creative, energetic, and love the country life. I have followed a college education social work service and worked as a supervisor in child care. In recent years, before our departure, I worked in communications. I also gave yoga and pilates classes. In 2013 I spent a month in Thailand and have been trained Traditional Thai Yoga Massage in Chang Mai.

The idea to settle in Carinthia grew during one of our holidays. It appeals to us because of the many hours of sun in summer and winter". .
