Families, nature lovers, anglers or wine drinkers: they will all find a country paradise Gut Hornegg. The idyllic estate with a historic castle and a manor is located in the Styrian hills at the base of two vineyard regions. In addition to biological fish farming, the family business (that is in its 4th generation) also operates two apartments in the old orangery. Instead of plants, the two greenhouses now house large eat-in kitchens with a fireplace. The bedrooms for up to six or ten people are in the adjacent parts of the building. On the roof of the house is a small sauna which can be used by the guests of both apartments. Each apartment has a terrace and the orchard in front of the door offers plenty of space for children to play outdoors.
What to do
The ponds Großer Spiegelteich and Haselgrabenteich with bathing jetty, sunbathing lawn, canoe and a small island landscape are exclusively available to holiday guests. Mini wellness house with Finnish sauna and a hot stone couch.
Holiday guests have the possibility to eat a special menu in the castle kitchen. The author of the cookery book Christiane Kada will prepare a fish menu on request. Holidaymakers can fish on the estate.
Styria is known for its culinary delights and lively cultural life. Possible activities: Visit to the Lipizzaner Stud, excursions to Riegersburg, open-air museum Stübing, Scholadenmanufaktur. Near the Hornegg estate: nature trail at Lake Spiegelsee, organic farm Kappl, Pramergraben, bicycle tours.
Why we like this house
The apartments are simple, but have a lot of charm and a special flair due to the 100 year old steel construction of the glass house.
This house is great for
Families, wine lovers, anglers, nature lovers.
