Perched above a staggered plateau on the edge of Austria’s UNESCO protected Nock Mountains, this quaint chalet village is surrounded by natural splendour. Most guests come to ski the resorts of Bad Kleinkirchheim, Turracher Höhe, Hochrindl and Falkert, which lie just minutes away.
During the warmer months, however, rest and relaxation are the names of the game. But if it’s activity or adventure you crave, then rest assured there are ample nearby hiking and biking trails to explore.
Guests can transfer to the Klagenfurt Airport in around 50 minutes.
Rooms & Suites
Perhaps the Almdorf’s greatest appeal is its sheer versatility. With 51 detached chalets spread throughout the village, guests are spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting a lodging to suit their budget and taste.
Accommodations are spacious, as even the smaller two-person chalets cover a generous 45m2 of floor space. Bigger offerings like the six person Farmhouse Chalet and spa are as big as 250m2.
Other options include cosy rustic chalets for couples, grandiose multistorey chalets for groups, spa chalets for wellness aficionados, and even a secluded treehouse chalet for lovers. The pièce de résistance, however, would have to be the enormous 180m2 Pool Alp Chalet Deluxe that comes with its own heated infinity pool.
Private hot tubs, wine cellars, infrared saunas, and open fireplaces are also available, depending on the chalet in question.
Regardless of which you choose, you’ll get an array of complimentary luxury amenities such as a fluffy bathrobe, a buffet breakfast delivered to your door, a pillow menu, and unlimited use of the communal village facilities.
Spa & Wellness
Health and wellness fanatics will want to rent a specialist spa chalet that comes equipped with relaxation installations such as saunas, Jacuzzis, and rain showers.
Nevertheless, there are a number of communal spa facilities as well, such as a Bioenergy flower stamp lifting massage and an outdoor hot tub. Some of the steam rooms on offer include a panorama, a Finnish, and a mountain herb sauna, each of which is guaranteed to soothe those aching muscles after a long day at the slopes.
For the ultimate state of zen-like relaxation, why not indulge in a spot of yoga after your sauna? Overlooking a beautiful natural pond, the village meditation space is about as calming as a place can get.
Food & Drink
Four separate restaurants comprise the culinary proposal of this luxurious alpine village.
From the Alps to the Mediterranean, the Wirtshaus Seinerzeit serves up a variety of hearty European fare, much of which has been sourced from regional farmers.
The Wine Cellar, on the other hand, is more about pairing dishes like salmon, tender veal, and strawberry sorbet with the finest regional wines.
Then there’s the Holzknechthütte, a delightful chalet diner that the BBC and the New York Times have declared to be “the world’s smallest restaurant”. It does only have a single table for four, after all.
Finally, the rustic Gasthaus Fellacher serves traditional Austrian cuisine on a spacious and sunny terrace.
All of the above can be delivered straight to your chalet door by one of the village’s dedicated butlers.
All the chalets have been constructed with renewable local wood and feature an eco-friendly design.
