Do you have a car or are you going by rail? I would think something right on the Woerthersee would be better.

I'm a bit familiar with the area. My grandfather lived in a village along the Wörthersee and we visited him there a few times.
What type of info are you looking for?

We have spent a week in an appartment on the shore of the Millstättersee and drove throughout the area visiting most of the lakes, Biosphärenpark Nockberge, Villach, mountain Alm etc. Was a good time and good fresh water fish. Check on local events as there was a huge motorcycle gathering at the Faakersee when we were there. Traffic can also get heavy around the lakes on weekends and holidays. I agree staying on one of the lakes is the way to go.

Actually visiting friends family.whom we have not met. We have told them we would love their company but that we are fine on our own..so we don't impose. Soo.. that being said..short hikes..lake visits..a castle here and there. Sounds like if we take train from Vienna that we would be better renting a car.

Yes..renting a car in the area is proving to be difficult. It looks lovely and would love to just wander the lakes. Thank you all.
