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.
