casual chic meets old timbers

Second life. The art-lodge is the home of art collectors Katrin and Dirk who enjoy hosting in style. The former advertising experts moved here with the intention to actually make the space feel personal, vibrant and welcoming, where whoever arrives is immediately made to feel at home, among friends. So, the old house has been given a new character and his owners became enthusiastic hosts. This is the mood of one of the few reference points in the cultural and social life in the Mountains.

Barefooted or with flipflops? No matter how, within the relaxed atmosphere of the art-lodge, furnished with contemporary pieces and vintage touches of findings, chilling is easy. The public salons and colourful hotel rooms burst with works of art, most permanent and some few on temporary display. The art-lodge consists also of a small exhibition room in the oldest part of the entire property, the "Troadkastn" from 1775, that formerly hosted the crop. The snuggery was  converted into a restaurant designed by Berlin artist Wolfgang Flad - you will be surprised! Speaking of artists, in the small video lounge video art is shown and discussions, lectures and other artistic events fill the summer schedule at the art-lodge.

At last but not least the constantly growing sculpture garden, the terrace, the cosy courtyard with its organic pool and the panoramic views will satisfy all senses. Just feel invited to settle in!

On the way.
The art-lodge is the ideal stopover on the way to or from Croatia. Only 25 minutes from  the A10 highway exit Villach in the mountains. Sea is great, but fresh mountain air and magnificent mountain evenings are not too bad either ;-)

Glamping. Four Tiny Houses invite you to experience "glamping" on a four-star level: the tiny space-wizzards have a stunning panoramic view and are ready for two self catering persons. Nevertheless, the guests of the tiny houses are always invited to use the swimming pool, to visit the restaurant, the Lokal and to book a breakfast. Whatever you like! 

Alone or on your way with your child only. Singles (with or without children) are heartly welcome. Requests for Single plus child or single use of a specific room mail to hallo(at)

With flixbus from Munich or by train you can come easily to Villach and than take the shuttle to the art-lodge.
