House with swimming pond near Vienna, Austria
Dear Intervac friends,
we are Andreas (45), Angela (44), Samuel (19) and Lukas (16). Andreas is a high school teacher and Angela works for the Archdiocese of Vienna (press relations). Samuel are graduating right now.
We are living on the North end of the city of Mistelbach, north of Vienna. Our house was built in 1955 and is permanently renewed. It has 2 levels plus a cellar (with washing machine and laundry dryer). On the ground floor: office, a second bathroom with toilet and our 40 sqm open living-dining-kitchen-room with Sat TV, books, 400 DVDs, PS3, DVDplayer, Netflix, free Wifi and a fireplace. Our kitchen is fully equipped. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms (1 double bed, 2 with 140x200cm, one of them plus sofabed), a bathroom and a toilet. In the boys´ cellarroom is a PS4 for relaxed videogaming.
A part of our garden is covered with a private swimming pond (natural water and plants), a deck area with pavillion (can be closed) and a table for 8 including a big Weber grill. In summer the garden is full of flowers and provides raspberries, tomatoes and herbs for you everyday. Basketball facilities and adult bikes are here for you.
There is a supermarket with bakery just around the corner and another bakery 300m away. The city center is 5 min away by car or 15 min. walk. All shopping centers, cinema, hospital, train station etc are there. There is also a new big shopping center 20 min. away towards Vienna and a lot more in Vienna.
Our private pond (no fence, 150 cm deep) is the highlight in hot summers, but there is also a public swimming pool in town with beach volleyball, slides etc. In about 20 min. drive you can reach a thermal spa (with outdoor pool) and a golf course. Within 0,5 - 1,5 hours you will find some national parks around with beautiful nature.
The whole region has little villages with wine cellars, to relax, enjoy wine and regional culture or adventure. Hundreds of kilometers of bike and walkings trails are all around, you can also rent bikes and e-bikes.
The famous Lake Neusiedl (surfing, sailing) is 2 hours away, as well as the first Alp mountains. There´s sailing and surfing on the Old Danube in Vienna in the middle of the city.
The Weinviertel region is the warmest in Austria, we have Pannonian climate which lets the wine, crops and sunflowers grow over here. As we have a lot of winemakers and farmers all around, you can buy food directly from the producers if you wish. The summers can be hot with up to 30-35°C, cooling down to 20-25° in the night - perfect for spending long summer evenings outside!
Looking for culture you can visit the Hermann Nitsch Museum (in our street), beautiful Liechtenstein castles, museums for all interests or visit regional festivals. You can find all touristic information in the information piles we provide for you. Our parents live nearby and can also answer your questions.
For more sightseeing, simply take a trip to Vienna! It is 40 min by car or 1 hour by train. It has just been named the most liveable city in the world (for the 7th time), you can find nature, history, culture, action and amusement of every kind. The famous Wachau is 1,5 hours away, Salzburg 3 hours by car (or by train from Vienna).
Don´t forget to try the beautiful ancient Eastern and Northeastern cities like Bratislava, Praha, Brno, Mikulov, Valtice, Lednice, ...
We are open for all exchange offers. Our boys like sports and chilling, everything concerning basketball and we are into all kinds of culture, markets, shopping and nice food. As our kids are very tall (1,90m), we will need 4 adult beds. And we are allergic to cats, sorry.
Be sure that we take good care of your home and belongings. And we expect you to take care of our home, too, and to replace broken items. Thank you.
We are looking forward for your offers.
