A stone pavement leads you in to the garden, to reach the front door of the apartment Trafuei. A receiving hallway brings you in to the exclusively furnished and very well-fitted kitchen, and then goes further in to the comfortable living room with tiled stove, large couch and large dining table. From here you can come straight in to the garden, where there is sufficient space to relax with a book, have breakfast comfortably or simply sit together with your family or friends, and enjoy warm summer nights.
The three bedrooms will provide relaxing sleep with double beds, which are all made out of pine wood and contribute to warm and cozy sheepskin beds for a sound and healthy sleep.
You can relax in the two bathrooms, one with bath and shower, other one with shower
and forget the time.

This is the third time we have stayed with Claudia and her family in Vintlana. The farmhouse is perfect. The interior is beautifully crafted from wood and yet also very modern with all possible luxuries and conveniences. Claudia is very helpful and friendly despite our language barrier. The situation of the farmhouse is excellent being only a 5 min walk from the town and 10 mins from the swimming pool and cable cars. We had a wonderful week of weather this summer and so were able to walk or bike everyday. With the Gardena Active card there are plenty of organised cycling and walking trips at reduced rates or even for free. The tourist information has a leaflet on all this and will book for you the day before. Free entry into the swimming pool is also a great perk. We love ortesei and the Dolomites and also staying at the farmhouse. We look forward to returning in the winter for skiing .
This apartment is absolutely beautiful. It is in a unique and beautiful 400 year old farm house, renovated to the highest standards and reflects St. Ulrich’s woodworking tradition with handcrafted furniture, built-in desks, headboards (custom made- one in the form of the nearby mountain). Down to the embroidered linens, it is exquisite. Spacious bedrooms, ample storage. Quiet and private with solid wood doors and sliding glass door separating the living from the bedroom areas permitting activities in living/dining from disturbing sleepers. Ideally located – a short drive from the highway so it’s easily reached; a short walk to the pedestrian streets and Seceda chairlift (walk, bus or drive and drop or park) so it’s convenient. Nice sized yard so our kids enjoyed sledding right outside the door. St. Ulrich – the largest town of the valley offers a very pretty village with nice shops, restaurants, outdoor skating rink, and pool (apartment comes with pool access – very nice, immaculate). Highly recommend. We’re returning! We thank Claudia and Bruno for sharing their beautiful home.
wir haben eine wunderbare woche in der wohnung trafuei verbracht. im eg gibt es neben der wohnung mit zwei schlafzimmern auch noch ein separates apartment (doppelbett mit bad und einem schönen und praktischen begehbaren schrank). für 6 leute also auch perfekt. auf wunsch gibt es auch ein kinderreisebett. alles sehr liebevoll und mit viel still eingerichtet. fußbodenheizung und lehmputzwände haben uns besonders begeistert. als auch ein kleines kalb, welches an unserem anreisetag geboren wurde :) sehr nett fanden wir auch den kostenlosen zugang zum schwimmbad im dorf.
die kleinigkeiten wie bücher, kinderspiele und seife oder shampoo fehlten in der wohnung. aber mit so netten gastgebern hat uns das nicht zu sehr gestört.
das dorf selbst ist sehr schön, viele restaurants und cafes sind zu fuß schnell zu erreichen. apfelstrudel im cafe corso ist sehr empfehlenswert. auch speck und käse sollte man nicht verpassen.
ski fahren kann man entweder direkt von dorf aus, oder man fährt mit dem auto nach wolkenstein (ca. 8km, parkgebühr 6€/tag oder 1€/std.) und startet von dort aus.
alles in allem ein sehr schöner und interessanter urlaub. sehr empfehlenswert!
