Travel and weather: when to book a holiday apartment in Carinthia
Carinthia's natural beauty will endure no matter what time of year you decide to go. If you're looking for a ski chalet holiday home in the Carinthian mountains, then winter is the obvious time to come, with December and January bringing the most consistent snow conditions. High summer season in July and August is the best time for warm temperatures and swimming, so it's ideal for lakeside holiday rentals. The shoulder seasons from May to June, and September to October, are also pleasant in Carinthia. During these periods, you can enjoy hiking, exploring the forest, and visiting the historical attractions of Carinthia's cities without the high-season crowds or prices.
