Natural ambience and sustainability
During your farm holiday you can enjoy unexpected amenities: Your accommodation is furnished with stone pine from South Tyrolean forests. This type of wood not only features a particularly aesthetic look. By quietly releasing the essential oils contained in the wood, you gently promote your well-being. Every night that you spend in your room is pure wellness pleasure. Furthermore, naturalness and sustainability are particularly important to us at the farm. For example, we heat with wood chips as a renewable raw material from the farm’s own forest. The holiday apartments were built using resource-saving timber construction. We pay great attention to strict waste separation. Our home-made and regional products are served according to the season – and the wonderful spring water from Mount Sciliar flows as drinking water.
Thank you very much for the opportunity to spend our vacation in a beautiful, unique and idyllic place. The view from the balcony was wonderful. Very clean apartments with 100% everything you need.
Very tasty, fresh and natural products left at the door of the room. Delicious home-made preserves, juices, yoghurts and ciders, milk straight from the cow, eggs and vegetables and fruit picked from the garden are better than the all inclusive hotel. Very nice and helpful owners….
