with its flower-rich mountain meadows, the wood-fenced cattle pastures and the quaint forests, lies on sun-drenched Kreuznerberg at almost 1400m above sea level in the South Tyrolean community Lüsen. The locals call it gruiba. Because of its wonderful secluded location, far away from the noise of civilization, silence is our greatest asset.

Our new apartment is called refuge. A word that refers to a small, safe place in a troubling and hectic world. Something like an oasis in the desert or an island on a stormy sea.

The special thing about this refuge: you do not share it with any other guest

Luckily, we do not have so-called tourist superlatives such as artificial snow ski-slopes, motorcycle racing circuits on Dolomite passes, alpine roller coasters or similar flavor enhancers in the vicinity, but a nice portfolio which makes SENSE, when it comes to recovering in the mountains.
We have a 180 degree natural cinema for you. It extends from the Lüsener mountains over the Schlern and the Sarntaler Alps to Trentino. Every day a new program. Gaudy sunrises and sunsets, even kitschy rainbows, crystal clear starry sky, bizarre cloud towers, colorful forest and colorful meadows, surreal alpenglow or cozy snowstorm (from inside). The large windows and the unobstructed view bring the mountains to you in the apartment or lure you outside. Pure opinion.
You do not much up here. Or do you? Although no usual everyday noise, but smacking cattle, cackling chickens, purring cats or the spring concert of the birds in our woods. Did we mention the roaring deer in autumn?
If you come from the city, you will have to get used to pure mountain air at just over 1400 meters. Here the air is still clean, which can be guaranteed with the purest conscience. As good as fresh hay, flowering meadows or our mountain forest smell, your nose will not forget soon. Not to mention the sauna infusions and all the wood in the apartment.
Our chickens are happy. You will be sure to confirm this after the first breakfast egg. If there are also happy apples, plums, redcurrants or potatoes, they will certainly hang on our trees and bushes or grow in our cottage garden. If the harvest is as good as last year, Andrea will spoil you with her homemade juices, jams or cakes.
Yes, you will feel comfortable with us.
Once the hunger for a beautiful mountainview is satisfied, you quickly become thirsty for exercise. The gentle alpine walks - summer and winter - right outside the front door or the bike laps - easy or difficult - from our Bikegarage, are worth every drop of sweat. The cross-country ski trail on the Lüsener Alm is one of the most beautiful in the neighborhood. As well as the backcountry skitours in the vicinity. For those who like to leave the ground, it is only a stone's throw to the climbing paradise of the Dolomites or the wild water dream canyon of the Rienz. Not to mention the South Tyrolean paragliding sky. We offer our expert assistance in individual tour planning. Maps and guidebooks can be borrowed.
ebikes - no thanks!
With us there is a lot to discover and observe for children. From the ants in the forest, the butterflies on the flowers to our highland cattle on the pasture, the alpine fauna and flora up here is very rich and interesting. Collecting mushrooms, picking berries, feeding chickens or currying cattle is very popular with us. Too boring ? Then off to the swing, the slackline, the sledge run (if there's enough snow), the climbing wall or the table tennis. And when in the evening, after an exciting day, the big hunger comes, it's time to barbecue at the campfire.
