There are also cooking classes available for those who like to endeavour in gastronomy in their travels.
This house was transformed into a power centre, where everything is possible. It’s a wellbeing hub for overworked city dwellers and country folk, a place that brings flow and focus and a return to the essentials. People can only develop their potential by treating each other with dignity and the hosts take that into account, by providing a meeting point for workers and creatives that share the same values and ethos, searching for a change in their professional and personal lives.

Flora and fauna
Known for its awe-inspiring scenery and landscapes, hosts a variety of nature and wildlife, including endemic species that are under preservation. It has a predominantly Central European fauna and is one of Europe's most heavily wooded countries. In total, the country is home to six national parks, nearly sixty nature reserves and parks and twenty alpine gardens. These parks and preserves span the country, incorporating various ecosystems and biodiversity.
The diversity of topographical and climatic conditions accounts for the country's species-rich flora. Austria is one of Europe's most heavily wooded countries. Characteristic are the deciduous forest (oak, beech) and the mixed forest (beech, fir) and in the higher altitude regions fir, larch and pines.
Especially diverse and colorful is the alpine flora which includes the edelweiss, gentian, alpine carnation, arnica, alpine rose, heather and much more.
There is a predominantly Central European fauna in Austria with species that include deer, stag, rabbit, pheasant, fox, badger, marten and partridge. Native to the alpine regions are the chamois, groundhog, eagle and mountain jackdaw. Characteristic of the Pannonian fauna is the vast bird population in the reed beds of the Neusiedler See such as heron, spoonbill, scooper, wild goose and many more.
In recent years, Austria has become home again to a small bear population, which can mainly be found in the heavily wooded southern and central mountainous regions.
EXPERIENCE THE LOCAL LIFE
In the mountains, far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, you can spend a special kind of workation in St. Koloman. With a slow and stress-free energy, but full of special moments filled with enjoyment, this small village, at over 800 meters above sea level, offers a range of fun activities, whether you’re staying in the cold or warm months of the year.
In the summer, the best way to be in touch with the green landscapes and dense forests is to go on one of the extensive hikes in the region, that will lead you past almost untouched natural sites. To find peace and relaxation with a nice and cold swim, go to the moor lake of Seewaldsee which is located in the landscape protection area. A trip up the Trattberg offers great panoramic views of the surrounding mountain peaks. In lofty heights there are numerous signposted hiking trails with a breathtaking panorama. For those who want to conquer the mountains on two wheels, St. Koloman is an ideal starting point. Trattberg and Bergalm await you with countless mountain bike routes, just a half hour drive away.
When the first snows of the season arrive, guests in St. Koloman are also drawn into nature to explore the winter landscape and special tranquility, participating in cross-country skiing and sledging.

Frequently asked questions for this offer
What happens after I make a reservation?
Once you send a reservation request, the landlord is notified that you are interested in their offer. From that moment, they have 24 hours to approve or reject your reservation.
Landlords are mainly interested in the profile of their tenant. Do not forget to fill in all necessary information, add your profile picture, or even make a short video about yourself. Doing that will make you more attractive for the owner and your reservation will more likely get approved.
What is the standard furnishing of flats?
All the apartments on offer on Flatio must meet certain standards. We require fully furnished and equipped ones, dishes, cutlery and internet connection included.
What is a medium-term rent?
The duration of a medium-term rent is usually 1 to 12 months. Most of the landlords offer long-term rents or rents for just a few days, therefore getting a medium-term rent without Flatio is not that easy.
Can I go through the contract before I make a reservation of the housing?
You can take a look at the contract in advance and online with every offer. After you sign it, you will find it in the application My Housing.
While arranging a contract on Flatio, you do not have to worry that it could be disadvantageous for you. Our contracts are made so that we avoid all problems! All of them are the same, used by all the landlords on Flatio.
Can I see my chosen accommodation in person before I sign the lease agreement?
Your time is precious. That's why we've added a virtual tour option to our platform so you can see some of the rentals listed on Flatio from the comfort of your own home.
If a virtual tour isn't available for the accommodation you've chosen, you can contact the landlord and ask them if they're willing to give you a personal tour of the rental unit.
If you move in and find that the rented accommodation doesn't match the information on Flatio at the time the reservation request was sent to the landlord, you can withdraw from the lease agreement under certain circumstances explained in this article in our help center.
Also, under our "secure move-in" policy, we'll assist you with moving to an alternative accommodation if you report within a certain period of time that the rental unit doesn't match the ad and the landlord doesn't fix the problem immediately. You can read the details in our help center.
How can I pay?
On Flatio, you have a variety of payment methods to choose from. You can use your card, payment gateway or bank transfer. Just pick the one which suits you the most.
How can I cancel my reservation?
How you can cancel a reservation varies depending on what stage the reservation is in.
Is your reservation request still waiting for landlord approval? Then you can simply cancel it directly from your My Housing web app!
However, suppose the owner has already approved your reservation request, and you are no longer interested in it. In that case, you can still cancel the reservation before you sign the lease agreement. Just consider that you should do this only in essential cases. Because when the landlord accepts your reservation, their property is stopped being advertised, and they can lose the chance to rent their property to someone else.
Do you have an approved reservation and also a valid agreement? In order to cancel your reservation, contact Flatio customer support well in advance of your contract beginning (the specific time and amount of refund depends on the type of cancelation policy).
