Wishes to the guest


We are a family that attaches great importance to the highest quality.

In order to be able to guarantee this quality in the long term, careful handling of the facility and our house is required. We therefore kindly ask you to treat all furnishings as if they were your own. If something breaks, please let us know so that we can get a replacement for the following holiday guests in good time.


The provision of resources such as water and energy is very costly for our environment. Please handle it carefully.


The Alpinence and all its associated apartments are non-smoking apartments! You are welcome to smoke in the "open air", ashtrays are available there.


We do not want drones. This drives away wild animals such as roe deer and deer. We also want to preserve the privacy of all guests and neighbors.


Many Thanks!



Living in the climate house

For the new building, which was completed in March 2019, we placed great emphasis on natural materials such as larch, spruce, pine, oak, stone and glass. The entire facility was specially made to measure by local craftsmen.






A - Z



= Short for Alpen Residence

The Alpinence consisting of two holiday apartments (Residence Vita and Residence Alpin) and a holiday home (Chalet Ulten) opened in 2019. All the furnishings were made to measure by local craftsmen. While the chalet has its charm in the rustic and typical Tyrolean style, the two newly built holiday apartments focus on modern, high-quality furnishings.



Even the best vacation comes to an end. On the day of departure, please remember to leave the key on the dining table. We ask you to vacate the apartment by 10:00 a.m. Deviating arrangements are of course possible after free availability of the apartments. The apartment is checked for completeness again after each departure.
