What's the Story
- For many years Brigitte and her husband had the desire to bring an old farmhouse back to life. It should become their home and at the same time a place to welcome guests. It should have a mountain view and a beautiful location. In 2018, a coincidence lead them to Geitau. To their great surprise, the Nagelschmiedhof in the middle of the village was actually for sale. For the 'Schmieds' it was a clear sign of fate! And so began their wonderful love story. In just 24 months, and with the support of family, friends and local craftsmen's businesses, they remodelled and lovingly restored the building to a beautiful property with eleven apartment-style suites.
