Overview

About the property

Near Bolzano - in the heart of the hiking region - breath-taking panoramic view

The apartment is on the ground floor and has two bedrooms, a large living room/kitchen (incl. dishwasher) and a bathroom. Satellite TV (flatscreen) and Internet are available. There is a small pond for swimming next to the apartment.

Our mountainside house is built on a large plot of forest and meadow land (over 5000 qm / 60,000 sq ft) in Jenesien (San Genesio) at an altitude of 1200m (4,000 ft), about 15 minutes from Bolzano, South Tyrol. The house is is set in a peacefully quiet clearing in the forest, right on the European long distance hiking trail E5 that connects Lake Constance (Bodensee) with Venice and Verona. There is a bus stop nearby (2 minutes); the shops and restaurants of San Genesio are about 8 minutes walk away and the cableway to Bolzano takes about 15 minutes. Bolzano's main attraction is Ötzi, the Iceman.

On-site parking is available for our guests. Towels and bed linen are provided, and upon your arrival you will also receive a hiking map of the region. We will also be happy to give you some hiking tips and recommend some good restaurants in Bolzano, San Genesio and the local area. The Langfenn, Lanzenschuster and Tschaufenhaus restaurants/cottages are all within 1.5 to 3 hours hiking distance and offer excellent and varied samples of South Tyrolean cuisine.

The hiking region extends from San Genesio to Hafling and Merano. The Salto plateau, with its sweeping alpine meadows and larch woods, is just a few steps from our house. Hiking over the Salto will afford you panoramic views of the high mountain ridges nearby. During the spring, the crocuses are a sight for sore eyes. They are replaced in the summer by an abundance of mountain flora, and during the autumn the larches turn a riotous red-gold, carpeting the hiking paths with their russet needles. In the winter, of course, the region is ideal for hiking through the snow.

Our house was featured in several German, Austrian and Italian architectural magazines in 2013 because of its self-sustaining energy supply and stunning countryside setting (see photograph in the 'greenbuilding' magazine).

Our 'neighbours' are five horses and we can arrange riding sessions for you if desired.

On another note, please be aware that everything in South Tyrol is in two languages: Italian and German. Our village is called 'San Genesio' in Italian and 'Jenesien' in German.

Smoking is not permitted in our apartment.

Minimum stay during the high season from June to September and over Christmas and New Year is one week.

Wunderschöne Wohnung mit Alpenpanorama und toller Ausstattung

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung der Karwegers ist sehr gut ausgestattet, großzügig geschnitten und hat alles was man benötigt. Hinzu kommt der schöne Garten mit atemberaubender Aussicht auf die Dolomiten auf der anderen Seite des Tals. Mit dem Auto ist man in ca. 20 Minuten in Bozen und wer wandern möchte geht nur außer Haus und kann sich einen der zahlreichen Wanderwege aussuchen. Als Tierfreund habe ich mich natürlich noch über die beiden netten Hunde Shari und Sina gefreut.

Absolut empfehlenswert!
