Mühlbach am Hochkönig, Austria
The holiday region at the foot of the Hochkönig mountain is known as 'Hochkönigs Bergreich'. The majestic limestone massif is a real challenge for passionate climbers. There is no convenient cable railway leading up or down the mountain. Below the mountain nestles the romantic village of Mühlbach am Hochkönig, the perfect place to forget the hectic pace of everyday life in idyllic and inviting surroundings. The Deutinger family running the hotel decided to turn this haven into something special: Proneben Gut.
Proneben Gut is no ordinary hotel complex, no holiday home in the common sense and it's also not a 'farm holiday' location. The unusual concept combines luxurious living with a working farm. A mix that inspired the complex's 'Kuschelhütten' (snuggle chalets), where holidaymakers can find peace and relaxation. Guests were so taken by these cosy lodgings that the Deutinger family decided to build an additional five chalets.
Each chalet has its own special name: 'Oma Gretl', 'Die Salzburgerin', 'Zirberl', 'Wiesenblume' and 'Schmuckstück'. And each also has its own unique charm. 'Oma Gretl' evokes the magic of days gone by, 'Die Salzburgerin' is stylish, 'Zirberl' pays tribute to the local stone pine tree, and 'Schmuckstück' is the very embodiment of elegance.
The Gira E2 design line was selected for the chalets' interiors. Its pared-down design, clear form, and minimal lines make this switch series an excellent choice. The Gira TX_44 design line was installed in the outdoor areas. It is protected against splash water and weather-resistant. A switch series that suits every architectural style.
All the chalets have large windows, providing guests with clear views of the surrounding nature. The rooms also have high ceilings, which help impart a sense of peace and tranquillity as soon as you enter. And superb furnishings add to the wonderful atmosphere. As befits the alpine location, generous use is made of pine, oak and larch wood. Each chalet has its own kitchen and sauna. During the colder months, guests can cosy up in front of an open fireplace, whilst in the warmer months they can sit out and relax on a balcony or terrace.
Farmlife and animals are fun - and not just for kids. Dogs, cats and cows make for memorable days spent in the Salzburger Land region. Ducks, geese, rabbits and goats are also part of the farm population. Riding lessons are available for beginners as well as advanced learners. Guests are even allowed to bring their own dog.
Thanks to its streamlined minimalist design, the timeless and original Gira E2 design line is the perfect complement to a range of interior styles. Choose between the shatter-proof UV-resistant plastic versions in pure white matt, pure white glossy, black matt, aluminium (varnished) and anthracite, or stainless steel.
