The house, location, and views exceeded our expectations. The kitchen was superbly equipped and the attached balconies, where we often sat either drinking coffee or wine, offered ever changing views of the valley and mountains depending on the time of day. To fight off the evening chill we availed ourselves of the kachelofen in the living room. A great way to relax before going to bed. The narrow winding roads require caution and a willingness to stop and back up when meeting an oncoming vehicle at one of the blind curves. Not having access to the laundry could be a problem if you are planning to stay for longer than a week or so. We were two couples and, since the house has three floors, there was more than enough room for privacy. Bolzano, Merano, and the wine growing areas are within easy reach as is Trento, a real gem, for day trips. Do not miss Brixen or Neustift, which is located just a few kilometers from Brixen. Could not provide a higher recommendation for a group of people or large family who enjoy nature, do not mind a little driving, and welcome being far from the madding crowd.
