Both born and having lived in the UK until May 2016, Angela and Mark have been together since 1999. We are primarily English speaking, with a smattering of German, We would appreciate your patience, understanding and most importantly your help to improve our language skills.
The name for our new home is not a conventional Austrian or Germanic name. It has evolved out of the great sense of family that the Austrian people have, and is derived from a joint interest that our mothers had, Tapestry! Samples of their work will be on display throughout the house, so that we can share their talent with our guests. Their passing in recent years has provided us with this unique opportunity to provide you, our guests, with the homely welcome and hospitality that our mothers have instilled in us when visitors came to our respective family homes in the past.
As well as the comforts that our home from home may deliver, we aim to provide a varied breakfast, using locally sourced, quality ingredients. Should you have any special dietary requirements, let us know at the time of booking and we will aim to provide this.
Our philosophy is that of “our home is your home”. So if there is anything that you would not be accepting of in your own home, then please let us know immediately, so that we may have the chance to rectify things and make your stay as complete and flawless as possible.
