The farm Aspmayr is located 820m above sea level and you will look directly onto the city of Bozen/Bolzano and the mountainous landscape of Ritten/Renon, Jenesien/San Genesio and Sarnthein/Sarentino. There are no neighbours nearby, and no noise from streets whatsoever, but plenty of diverse gardens, fields, meadows and woods.
The renovated apartement is equipped for all homely pleasures like preparing meals with local food, taking a bath or sitting in front of the wooden oven in a cosy chair and reading a book. You’re welcome to stay on our huge terrace or to take advantage of the two deckchairs in the garden. On a fireplace outside you can grill your dinner in the evenings.
Our farm is geographically located in the middle of South Tyrol, therefore it is a perfect place to go or drive in all directions of the region. There are plenty of hiking, climbing, skiing, swimming and biking possibilities to reach within 20-40min by car. If you feel like easy walking, you can start right from our farmhouse.
Margareth and Simon, both with academic backgrounds, run the farm since a few years with much passion and joy. Both are interested in working along natural cycles, in diversity and permacultural systems. Therefore our farm hosts not only a variety of plants and fruit trees, but also animals like chicken, pigs, sheep and cats.
Since 2012 we’re also running an artist residency and art event program under the name Hotel Amazonas which invites regularly up-and-coming contemporary international artists to come and publicly share their art and practices.
In the weekends in autumn we open the door for hikers and groups to have meals made with our products in our traditional Stube or on the terrace.
In South Tyrol the main population is a German speaking minority, that's why the village is called Wangen (German) and Vanga (Italian). We speak German, Italian, English, and a little French.
You will need a car because of the seclusion of the house. There are many convenient and reasonable car rentals in the city of Bozen/Bolzano, which is only 18km away, where there is also a very well connected train station. The closest bus station is in Wangen (distance from the house: ca. 20 min, steep path in the woods).
