We both grew up in Styria and lived in Germany, England, and the USA for many years before returning to Graz. We now live in a stately old listed Wilhelminian style villa called "Markhof" directly opposite the university. Your apartment is in the adjoining outbuilding called "Stöckl", which is also a listed building and has been beautifully renovated. We are happy about every guest with whom we can share our unique home.
We will try to make your stay as comfortable and positive as possible and ask you to please treat your entrusted apartment and other guests with respect. Have fun!
History of the Markhof Villa
The land where the Markhof Villa is now located was was bought by an industrialist in 1843 and construction work began a year later, but it took over 10 years to complete due to constant changes of ownership. The name “Markhof” comes from one of the owners of the building, in 1919 the estate was bought by the ancestors of the present owners.
