Perks for the Parents

Retreat to this family-friendly, historic farmhouse in the beautiful Seewinkel area of Burgenland, 10 minutes from Lake Neusiedl and less than an hour from Vienna. It sleeps 8. Large groups will enjoy the cozy living room, with its robust antique furniture and fireplace - the perfect place to gather after a day spent outdoor swimming or cycling. Parents will appreciate the child-friendly layout (with space for 2 families to share or multi-generational trips) and the fully stocked kitchen which makes family meals easy.

Why Kids Love it

The house has wooden toys, English and German children’s books and games for kids of all ages. Children of all ages will love the 'monkey tree' with climbing and tree fort, metal jungle gym and trampoline (with net) as well as the 6 meters of organic raspberries for picking! Tweens will enjoy lounging in the hammock or in one of the garden lounge chairs. Many young children list the 'child-size' sink in the guest bathroom as their favorite feature, and parents will love the independence their children feel here.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 1 week in Summer and during Austrian school holidays or long weekends; 3 nights over holiday weekends; 2 nights throughout the rest of the year. There is a tax charged additionally of €2.50 per adult per day, €1.50 per child per day. Safety notes: the house is all set on 1 level except for the living/dining area, which includes 2 stairs up to the living area. By design, the house is fenced in on 3 sides, and the hosts have added a back gate to ensure a worry-free experience. There is dedicated parking in front of the building and additional parking across the street. While a car is helpful for visiting neighboring attractions, the area is flat and is known for easy biking. Smart features in the house include a Smart TV and charging pads in the living room, parents' room and guest room.

About the Location

This residence is located 55 minutes from Vienna in Frauenkirchen, Austria. Nestled in the northern tip of the province of Burgenland, it sits across from the town's Basilica, and is less than 2 blocks from dining, wineries, playgrounds and the lavender fields of local business Steppendurft. Extensive bike trails connect Frauenkirchen with neighboring towns. It’s a 20-minute cycle (or 5-minute drive) to St. Martin's thermal baths, which has an extensive children's area and nature club including 4 indoor and 7 outdoor pools and an outdoor summer Island from May - September. Families will also love Podo Beach, a multimillion euro pay-to-play playground at the bank of Lake Neusiedl, in nearby Podersdorf (10 minutes drive or 20 minutes by bike), where attractions include a climbing area, sand pit, water playground, swings, and a 40 meter ball track. It’s 40 minutes from Vienna's international airport and around 15 minutes’ walk to Frauenkirchen train station (where you can take a train into the capital in 1.5 hours).

Accommodation Details

The property has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, set on 1 floor. Outside, there’s an extensive garden play area with a Weber grill and views of the town's Basilica from the fenced-in garden. You’ll find an open plan kitchen/living room, with a large island and a dining table for 6. The primary bedroom has a queensize bed and ensuite bathroom with a steam shower; the guest bedroom has 2 single beds and a garden view; the children’s bedroom has 2 sets of bunk beds and an extensive toy closet. The guest bathroom has 2 sinks, with one at 'child’ height, as well as a tub and toilet seat with integrated child seat. A crib, high chair and baby changing mat can be provided upon request.

Style Notes

Rustic farmhouse. This 150-year-old home was fully renovated in 2016. A tasteful mix of rustic Austrian antiques and robust fabrics makes the home especially child-friendly and relaxed. Owned by an American/Austrian family of 5, it's ideal for international visitors who will love touches like a large refrigerator with an ice dispenser, and thick farmhouse walls that keep the home cool in summer and cozy in winter. We love the light and neutral color palette, the stylish contemporary tiling in the bathrooms and the traditional built-in fireplace.

I'm an American from the South who has lived in Austria for more than 20 years. I love to visit grocery stores in the places I travel, & nothing beats a drink & a meal in the sunshine at my destination. I'm a mother of three bilingual children, and I strive to make our vacation home a welcoming retreat for children of all ages!
