WHERE WE ARE.
VILLAKRAFT is located in Bad Gastein in Salzburgerland. The house is located at the foot of Bad Gastein’s historic city center in the quiet neighborhood Badbruck. The power of the water is all around the house. On the one side there is the river coming out of the idyllic 'Kotschachtal', a beautiful area for walking and entry point to the Hohe Tauern National Park 'kernzone' with the famous Reedsee lake. Opposite the house is one of the oldest water therapy houses (Kurbadehaus) where hot thermal water runs. From the house it is a few minutes walk to the foot of the Bad Gastein waterfall. Follow a beautiful walking path along the waterfall and you are in the heart of Bad Gastein in 20 minutes. Following the river further into the valley towards Bad Hofgastein you will discover the swimming lake Gasteiner Badesee in 30 minutes walk. The Badesee is a terrific place for relaxing and bathing in a beachclub style setting.
The (ski) bus stops right in front of the house. Busses take you in less than ten minutes to the ski lifts of Gastein: Bad Gastein (Stubnerkogelbahn) or Bad Hofgastein (Schlossalmbahn). Both stations are open in summer as well to bring you to hiking and playing areas on the tops of the mountains. In the Gastein valley there are three more ski areas: Graukogel - go back in time on this idyllic slope, Sportgastein - freeride heaven and Dorfgastein - family ski area.
For trailrunning lovers: VILLAKRAFT is right on one of the tracks of the annual 'Infinitetrail' worldcup trailrunning event.
The unique "Gasteiner Heilstollen" with their healing power of radon are located at the end of the valley and can be reached by car in 15 minutes.
