As architects, it took us quite a while to find the perfect place to create our home. Lots of light, space, a terrace off the living room, and a quick...
Where is it?
We're living in a small village about 20 km from Vienna. There are two city train stops in our village, and it takes about 30-40 min to get to downtown Vienna or any other place in Vienna (train tickets, which can be used in all of Vienna; are comparatively cheap).
As we have a very nice neighborhood, help is always available when needed. It's a two minutes walk to the next local pub, where you can get local wine & food.
The area doesn't look exactly very "Austrian", as the next mountains are about one hour drive away on either side (Lower Carpathians in Slovakia, the lower Alps on the other side of Vienna). But we are right in the middle of Austria's vineyard, the so called "Weinviertel". For people, who love bicycling, the area is just perfect (and you can use our bikes as well).
Vienna is, of course, the music capital of the world. Besides you'll find museums, galleries, about two dozen different theaters (some of them using English), and lots and lots of history at every street corner.
Bratislava is about 30km away (we have a train connection), Budapest and Prague about 3 - 4 hrs. drive by car.
