About Paul Warren Wilson
Paul and Kathy Warren Wilson are English, but have been living in Klagenfurt, Austria since 2006, together with their 4 children. Paul is a pilot flying the Boeing 747 for Cathay Pacific and Kathy is a qualified teacher - teaching primary classes and also teaching English as a foreign language. It was time for a change from England - and Carinthia provides a wonderful outdoor life, as well as the chance for our children to become fluent in a second language. It's not really enough just to speak English nowadays...
Paul Warren Wilson purchased this Chalet in 2007

Wonderful place and people!
Highly recommended!! The chalet is located on the top of a mountain, with an amazing view to the nature around. The house is fully equipped, very clean and cozy. Paul and his family were very helpful whenever we had any questions or needs. Thank you again for a true feeling of hospitality, even though we didn't get the chance to meet face to face.
Buggl in Bach
Beautiful well appointed spotless chalet in an amazing location. Absolute peace and relaxation. Perfect for swimming, hiking, eating and drinking
Superb retreat in the hills
Perfect holiday Accomodation for those wanting relaxation in the countryside away from the hustle of urban life. Lovely spacious house, friendly owners who are easy to contact and surrounded by wildlife with the local farm animals. The house is equipped with everything you could possibly need!
Loved our stay! Thank you so much!
Thanks for the kind words... so glad you enjoyed your stay!
This lovely and comfortable house is beautifully situated and has fantastic views. It is strategically located, with many attractions nearby (e.g. cycling around Wörther See, hiking around Turracher höhe). An idyllic lake is down the road for a swim on hot days. Great hiking can start at the back of the house. Owners are very friendly and welcoming. Excellent bbq. Definitely a place to come back to! A week was too short to explore the area. For some people it might be good to know that a (or, in our experience two) cat(s) call this house home and are very present a lot of the time.
Many thanks for your thoughts and it's great to know that you found the location so good. For sure, the opportunities to enjoy nature are plentiful! We'll have a word with the cats, which belong to the farm - they know when they have found nice people and food, but maybe it's time to offer them a bit less hospitality!
Beautiful house and surroundings :-)
Just returned from a weeks stay at this beautiful home, was greeted with a few welcome gifts left by the owners.
Although it is high in the mountains, which is why we booked it, it also also only a short drive from local shops and restaurants (20mins) and from Klagenfurt (40mins),which offers plenty of activities.
Great sitting area outside and plenty of room inside of the property.
If we decide to come back to this area I would definitely stay here :-)
Thank you Paul and Kathy
So glad you enjoyed it! You're right, it's wonderful to sit or eat outside and see the view right down into the valleys and across got the Karawanken mountains...
Wij (man-vrouw 72-80 jaar) hebben in juni twee weken doorgebracht in Buggl in Bach, een gehucht in Karinthië. Een fantastische locatie. Voor ons gold: alles 'klopt'. Het huis voelde goed, uit alles blijkt dat het huis ten dienste staat van de gast. (De cake, het fruit, de wijn en ander lekkers was een leuke binnenkomer) Er is veel leefruimte. Maar waar we als een baksteen voor vielen was het prachtige terras met het uitzicht en de overweldigende stilte. Ongeëvenaard.
Naar onze mening: werkelijk een oord om tot rust te komen!
We're so happy you enjoyed your time at our house!
Buggl in Bach is a hamlet of 8 houses clustered around the original farmhouse, belonging to the Stubinger family (now in their 4th generation here), who are famous for their Austrian musical evenings on Thursdays in July and August.
The house nestles in a curve on the hillside, with forests and pastures ('alms') all around. There are wide-ranging views across the countryside, looking 2,000 ft down into the valley near Feldkirchen, or around 100 km across to the Karawanken mountains bordering Slovenia and Italy. In winter the area is snow-covered; in spring, the fields come to life again with a myriad of wild flowers of all colours; and in summer, the cattle enjoy the lush grass which in late spring takes on a real emerald colour.
Right out of the front door, you can walk in almost any direction from the house, either along the many paths and tracks, or indeed freely across the fields. Friendly, local guest houses make for an easy and tasty stopping point during a day or half day walk. The Goggausee, a small lake with quiet swimming opportunities, is within walking distance - although it's downhill, so save some energy for the walk back home! Within easy driving distance are many more of Carinthias wonderful lakes - noted for their beautifully clear water and their warmth (up to 27 deg C in summer). The nearest is the family-friendly St Urbaner See, which has pleasant grassy areas for sitting in the shade or sun when not swimming.
Just over 30 mins drive brings you to the county capital of Klagenfurt, which lies adjacent to the Wörthersee lake, a delightful place for swimmers and sunbathers. The city itself has a charming old centre and offers all the usual facilities, including numerous coffee shops (for example in the Alter Platz) where one can sit outside and enjoy a coffee or a beer. Of special note is the Christkindlmarkt, a Christmas market full of character with unusual and good quality gifts for sale - as well as Glühwein and various local delicacies for those with an appetite - which runs from 24 Nov to 24 Dec each year.
This location in southern Austria also allows for an easy visit to Slovenia or Italy (although, as someone said to us... 'If you live here, why would you want to go anywhere else?!'). Tarvisio, just across the border into Italy, is 1 hr away, as also are Bled and Ljubljana in Slovenia. Salzburg is around 2 hr 30 min drive, and both Vienna and Venice are approx 3 hr 30 min. The Austrian trains also provide an excellent means of travel.
For skiers, the nearest area is Simonhöhe (approx 15 mins by car) - a relatively small area, ideal for beginners and lower intermediates. Simonhöhe is particularly popular with families, due to the nature of its slopes and facilities, and the fact that it tends not to have many crazies skiing wildly out of control down the slopes! Ski school and ski rental are available. For those looking for more challenging skiing, several areas lie within approx 1 hr drive away, including Bad Kleinkirchheim, Turracherhöhe and Nassfeld.
