Welcome to our beautiful Austrian home which comfortably sleeps 10-15 people and is located in the pretty village of Steirisch-Lassnitz, Austria. The Old Vicarage is a listed building dating from 1745 and was lovingly restored in 2008 by its British owners. It is a spacious home and full of rustic charm.
Next door to the house is the Wallner Pension Gasthoff offering additional accommodation, a bar serving excellent fresh coffee and the wonderful locally brewed Murauer beer and good food!
The Old Vicarage is located in the Murtal Valley in central Austria. This Alpine area remains a well guarded secret offering numerous ski resorts and picturesque scenery, ancient history and unique culture.
There are 8 Murtal ski mountains - Turracher Höhe, Kreischberg, Lachtal, Grebenzen, Hohentauern, Frauenalpe, Präbichl and Gaal. Kreischberg offers 29km of sunny slopes reaching altitude of 2118m, and is home to Europe's largest half pipe and features a tubing arena and 1.2km sledge/taboggan run. Families flock to the resort for the Yabba-Dabba-Doo-Land, Alice In The Winterland and much more! Lachtal's 48km of slopes for all levels reach an altitude of 2200m. Snowboarders will enjoy the snowboard park with two kickers of different sizes, one corner jump and two rails.
The medieval town of Murau is 10km away with it's pretty streets and town square and offering a small mix of cafes, bars and restaurants. It also has a good selection of supermarkets. Murau was chosen to host "Regional 12", a festival of art and culture, in 2012. In the summer there are Shakespeare productions in the park.
The region is known as Styria, and its capital is Graz, rich in history and with a picturesque medieval centre. Graz was crowned Cultural Capital in Europe in 2003.
Although Austria is known for its fantastic ski resorts, there are plenty of spring and summer activities to enjoy in the area including horse riding, cycling, trekking and rafting.

There is a fishing lake just 300 metres from the house and a wonderful picturesque swimming lake a 5 minute drive away.
