What's the Story
- The Felderhof has its origins in the 11th century and is located 1,200 meters on a southern slope of the Villanderer Alm. The listed ensemble includes a residential building and a barn. Elements of the main house are more than 500 years old, and a traditional and rare thatched roof characterizes the barn (a total of five such thatched roofs are still in South Tyrol today). After buying the farm, Tom Erlacher lived in the main house for almost ten years without electricity or heating. In 2015 he commissioned the architecture firm Mikolajcak Architects to build a private apartment, which was embedded in the rear part of the property and was mostly built underground. In 2021, the main house, today's Felder Alpin Lodge, was renovated under the direction of the architects' office Perathoner from Selva.
- Rates start at EUR 2700 per night for 6 people + local city tax of EUR 3 per person and night.
- Some of the best restaurants in the world are in South Tyrol. Crowned with stars or awarded with toques. Others are simply the best at what they offer. Alpine cuisine, Törggele dishes, or pizza from the wood-fired oven. Claudia will recommend favorite restaurants within a short drive from the lodge.
- Claudia, your host and responsible for the management of the Felder Alpin Lodge, is there for you even before the trip.
- The staff can organize helicopter transfers with Elikos helicopter service. You can land directly at the lodge.
