How does it work here

The owner Martina inherited the broken-down house from her grandparents and fell in love with the spot as a child. She decided along with her husband to completely reconstruct it, which took them in the end five years, but it was well worth it. The cottage looks as if taken out of fairy tale and each part of it has its story. The owners often stay here with their four children, so it is equipped for families to have everything they need here. 

Where will you sleep

When you enter, there is a hallway from which you get to the kitchen and then a common room with a large corner couch. Light kitchen with dominant red fridge is custom made and equipped with everything you need. The kitchen table and a corner bench are original restored pieces and a definite focal point is a unique furnace, which gives the room a very nontraditional feel. The attic has a bathroom and three romantic bedrooms with gorgeous view of the mountains.  

What can you do there

The cottage is very traditional yet has all modern pleasantries, such as floor heating, dishwasher, satellite or Wi-Fi. Kids will fall in love with a nook on the furnace with lots of pillows, blankets and stuffed animals. In summer, there is a trampoline in the garden and a seating with a grill. The surrounding area is great for bike trips, hiking as well as winter sports or horse riding.
