What an incredible location! The castle enjoyes an eagle's nest position second to none which redefines the meaning of the word "panoramic". We absolutely love this superior 4* Tyrolean castle nestled among the beautiful Northern Italian Alps! Couples in search of the extraordinary will experience here the setting of their dreams.
Imagine a location in which quality is not luxury, it is simply how things are done and have been done for over 50 years of family run hospitality!
We discovered this Fairytale Castle while driving along the beautiful alpine scenery around Bolzano and Merano; famous for its vineyards and fruit orchards built up into the walls of the mountains. Suddenly, the castle appears, dominating the entire valley from the top of a cliff overlooking the charming small Tyrolean village below. It feels as if you just stepped inside a postcard. The historic hotel is the perfect starting point for every possible excursion: from touring Alpine castles to mountaineering, paragliding, fishing, cycling, mountain-biking and visiting the bucolic Monticolo and Caldaro lakes.
Imagine castle walls bordered by countless roses. In the middle, a wrought-iron gate. Just one small step and you feel like you are in a different world. Inside the castle, you sense a truly special magic in the air. The sweeping terrace with spectacular views over the Tyrolean landscape is the perfect setting from which to enjoy outstanding cuisine.
We still remember the thrill of relaxing on the panoramic terrace restaurant sipping on a glass of Prosecco...
