I have been to Carinthia several times. In general the people are nice and friendly. Carinthia is warmer than the rest of Austria, there are several large lakes which are a good place for a summer holiday.
There are several "Spas" in Carinthia with hot springs and nice resort areas.
Some of my favourite places are:
Castle Hochosterwitz
Keutschacher See - it is very warm in summer
Magdalensberg - interestings ruins to visit
National Park "Nockberge"
Castle Landskron
Zoo at Castle Rosegg
Villach
Food is very "hearty" - the most well-known dish is "Kasnockn" which is small dumplings with cheese baked in the oven.
