Holidays in the South
A relaxing family holiday all year round
A holiday on the farm in southern South Tyrol is an excellent opportunity to fashion your own individual family holiday whilst experiencing everything that the magnificent natural surroundings of the Etsch Valley have to offer. The Schmalzerhof is in a perfect spot – surrounded by colourful orchards and alpine nature, yet close to the villages of the lowlands and the city of Bolzano.
Each season has its own special features: landscapes filled with blossom in spring, enjoyable hikes during the brightly-coloured autumn, the chance for a refreshing dip in the nearby lakes in summer, and snowshoeing in winter.

Added to this there is plenty of peace and quiet and a unique panoramic view.
An exciting farm holiday in South Tyrol
Swimming pool with lovingly tended garden
Around the farm, our lovingly tended garden and a sunbathing area with sun loungers, parasols and table tennis are available for you to enjoy. In summer we offer a convivial barbecue evening, whilst the children can let off steam safely and to their hearts’ content on the farm and in the surrounding orchards. A kids’ slide, swings and a sandpit round off the offering for our younger guests. If required, we have children's cots, and a pushchair is also available to hire.
Our farmer’s breakfast
An indulgent start to the day
A good breakfast with fresh farm produce is the best way to start the day. In our cosy breakfast room we serve delicious home-made, sweet and savoury treats and typical South Tyrolean produce that will give you all the energy you need for exciting days out.
Good things from the farm
Enjoy the tasty farm produce that your hostess, Hildegard, prepares with lots of love from healthy, natural ingredients, fresh fruit and herbs from her garden. Included in our range are fruity jams, herb salt, tea blends, syrups, home-made apple juice, and red and white wine. They are available to eat at once on holiday or to take away with you to enjoy back home.
Out and about by e-bike
If you would like to explore the amazing mountain scenery around the Schmalzerhof on two wheels, we will be happy to make our e-bikes available to you. We have two, which can be hired by the day. We charge €15 per bike.
Apart from this, we are pleased to be able to offer bike trailers for up to 2 children free of charge.
Varied vacation days at the hiking farm
South of South Tyrol
Around the Schmalzerhof there is a wealth of attractions for nature-lovers and hikers. After all, it is not by chance that our Schmalzerhof is also known as a hiking farm. There is plenty to explore in the immediate vicinity of the farm: bountiful vineyards, historic residences, unique lakes for swimming in, and imposing mountains. Just a few kilometres away there are picturesque villages and towns, such as Eppan an der Weinstraße, Kaltern, Bolzano. Hiking in this uniquely lovely landscape is a boon for body and soul.
