About the neighbourhood
Dobriach and the surrounding area has much to offer, including walking, hiking and cycling in the beautiful Nockberg National Park and Millstatt mountain ranges, or around the many local lakes. Lake Millstatt itself is the deepest and warmest of Carinthia's bathing lakes, and offers holiday-makers the choice of many watersports, including boat hire, kayaking, swimming, diving, fishing and water-skiing. A pleasure boat/ferry service runs through the high season, stopping at several points around the lake. There are many cafes and restaurants in the area, offering a wide variety of delicious food and refreshments.
The picturesque local towns of Spittal and Villach are also well worth a visit, as is the spa town of Bad Kleinkirchheim.
Getting around
A car is recommended for making the most of the many sights in the region. There are many walking routes that can be joined direct from the house, and the village of Dobriach is a 15 minute walk, although this is down a steep hill for the most part.
There is a bus route that serves the region, the closest stop being 10 minutes walk (down the hill). Between December and April there is a skibus that goes to the Bad Kleinkirchheim resort - this is free to those holding a ski pass.
Train services run from nearby Spittal (20km away) and Feistritz Paternion (17km).
