Our family had a wonderful time in this historic farmhouse. We arrived by way of Innsbruck and the drive and scenery along the way was certainly breathtaking. We chose this house because of it's charm. It is not your typical VRBO house. The best way I can describe it is that it is an experience. Reclaimed wood was used during the renovation to preserve the character of the space. There are ample beds for a large party. The bathrooms are beautifully remodeled with all modern conveniences. Look for the trap door to the cellar for another adventure. We enjoyed the upper living room with the fireplace. One evening we lit a fire in the fire place and shut off all the lights to get a feel for what it may have been like for residents of past years. It was nice to just sit and talk on such a quiet evening. There is a washing machine and grill on the premises. The neighbors are super friendly and you can get fresh eggs and milk each evening. The upper loft was just beautifully renovated. There is a nice porch to relax and enjoy dawn or dusk. There is a restaurant two houses up the hill that has AMAZING food and wonderful hospitality. I shouldn't forget the friendly cat that greets you when you go outside of the house. My kids loved that. Journey farther up the pass and you will find a little ski town with a gondola and many paths to walk on. This is a different kind of place. A place to relax, unplug and melt away into nature. I highly recommend it. Much thanks to Eva for being so helpful in accommodating us.
We loved our stay in Hafling in this chalet. We stayed here in June for a short hiking vacation in South Tyrol. We were two families with 3 teenagers. The house is very nicely furnished and appointed with high end utensils, furniture, and dish ware. It does not feel like a rental, but like an upscale mountain home. The owner put a lot of effort into keeping the authenticity of rural Tyrolean life in the home, which really is reflected in the thoughtful design of the home. We had access to wine, apple juice, jam and bakery products produced locally and delivered to the home, which was really nice. We ate too many of the jams and drank too many of the juices to deplete the reserves for this year. The hikes around this area were absolutely breathtaking. We also enjoyed visiting Merano and going to the thermal baths (twice!). Of course, we went to see Oetzy in Bolzano (a must, if you visit this region).
Coming from Chicago, Hafling is kind of out of the way, but nevertheless, we will try to come again and we highly recommend it to others. We truly enjoyed the hospitality of the hosts and of the people in this autonomous region. They value what is best in the Austrian and in the Italian culture.
