Come up to slow down

Up here, where the Culinaria in the Farmer’s Cross used to stand, culinary enjoyment and stylish living enter into a new liaison – passionate, adventurous, pure. Elisabeth and Manfred Kofler invite you to two Appartements with mountain views and Private Dining. For living. To feel good. To dream. Just be in the moment, relax and let yourself go. Two apartments with a view of Merano and the surrounding mountains invite you to rediscover happiness. Lively and light. Determined by the clear and modern design, which encourages you to linger through the light-flooded rooms. This is how a vacation in Dorf Tirol goes.

The Sky Suite – Simple elegance combined with a breathtaking view

A bathtub overlooking the orchards and a panoramic terrace that almost touches the sky. High above Merano, in a vacation apartment perfect for unwinding – for a week or even longer. There are no limits to the time.

The Dining Suite – Culinary experience, enjoy and relax

Experience the culinary diversity of South Tyrol in a living room atmosphere. Give free rein to your own creativity in a fully equipped premium kitchen or enjoy the panoramic view while dining in the spacious dining area – every moment tells its own story that will be remembered.

Private Dining

It is cooked up – very exclusively in a small circle. The finest delicacies are prepared fresh on site. It sizzles. Corks pop. Dinner is served, cheers! A moment that invites you to join in, watch or simply enjoy.


Manfred Kofler was born in the village of Tyrol and is a passionate cook. He learned his craft in international restaurants. Back in South Tyrol, traditional and Mediterranean influences in particular shaped his cuisine at Culinaria im Farmerkreuz. In 2017, he earned a Guide Michelin star for it. Now a new adventure begins – quality, creativity and passion remain.

SPA & Wellness

Dive into nature and look inward. Enveloped by Mother Earth, the Brunnenhaus.Spa is carefully embedded in nature. A green mound that surrenders itself to the landscape. The old wooden doorway at the entrance is evidence of permanence and allows a view through to the interior. A stone fountain out of which the farm’s own source water flows, clay walls, a crackling fire and plenty of places to retreat to have a cosy effect. Bright, open rooms draw the gaze towards the green surroundings. Inside or outside – nature is always within reach.


The perfect blend of cuisine and nature, taking time to eat good food. The Apfelhotel Torgglerhof offers unique gastronomic experiences prepared using traditional methods. Fresh regional produce and innovative recipes make every visit an unforgettable moment in time.

Fresh vegetables from the garden, sweet fruits from the trees, fine wines from our own vineyard. Junior chef Christian is proud of the fact that he only cooks using what’s fresh and seasonal. Christian’s ingredients are simple, but it’s how they’re prepared that makes them special.

Simply romantic

In the south of Italy in the Sassi of Matera, UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1993, the Sextantio Le Grotte della Civita was constructed as a cultural project of restoration of ancient caves. With the project, the Sextantio Group and the Cathedral Society want to honor the historical heritage. The buildings and caves now serve as spacious, romantic boutique rooms and suites and impress with authentic romance. The suites and common room in the Cripta della Civita, an ancient rock church, offer breathtaking views of the Gravina stream against the backdrop of Murgia Park.

Classic & traditional

Culinary wishes remain unfulfilled at Sextantio Le Grotte della Civita. The day starts with a hearty breakfast on the terrace overlooking the dramatic landscape. The famous bread of Matera, freshly baked focaccia, homemade sweets, fresh seasonal fruit, mozzarella, ricotta, natural yogurt and delicious jams are supplied by the organic farmer in the area.

At the exclusive dinner, by candlelight, flickering fireplace and classical music, local wines and traditional dishes of Matera are served in the rock church. Under the guidance of a talented cook from Matera, you can learn the ancient art of making homemade pasta according to authentic recipes. The deconsecrated 13th century church can also be booked for a private dinner for 2 – a suggestive and distinctly romantic experience in a mystical setting.

The cave 13 or better known as the honeymoon suite, it is the only cave that extends over several levels: about 80 square meters, divided between a gallery sleeping area with large window and balcony with panoramic views of Murgia Park, living room and bath in a romantic exclusive cave with fireplace.

The soul of the village

Sextantio Albergo Diffuso is a fortified medieval village in the mountains of Abruzzo in the National Park Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga. The hotel breathes life back into the historic castle village. With the help of the Museum “Genti d’Abruzzo” over 10 years has been tried to remain faithful to the ancient traditions and customs and to give the hotel as best as possible the original identity stamp of a medieval village. Travel through time, into another world and let yourself be enchanted.

Authenticity & tradition

The interior design of the rooms is inspired by pictures taken by the Swiss guide Paul Scheuermeier in Abruzzo in the 1920s. In order to preserve the unity of the aesthetic-affective interior design and avoid the excessive use of contemporary elements, native objects, as well as ancient and traditional local materials are used. The search for the archaic soul of these spaces has led to the preservation of the small windows, the subdued light, the uneven floors. Handmade soaps from olive oil and other products made strictly according to traditional methods are part of the thoughtful decoration of the rooms. In the rustic restaurant “LOCANDA SOTTO GLI ARCHI” local ingredients are prepared into traditional dishes according to the original recipe and, of course, is eaten from handmade kermaik plates and pottery.

Best Room – Suite Loggette

On the second floor of the suite Loggette there is a small library with a fireplace where you can linger to enjoy a glass of liqueur while you browse a good book on the sofa. Upstairs there is a large double bedroom with fireplace in front of the bed, with a hand-woven woolen blanket in antique Abruzzo design, separate bathroom with bathtub. Balcony with external loggia overlooking the alleys of the village, while from the opposite window you can enjoy the view of the pine forest.

Surrounded by Nature

ZASH Country Boutique Hotel is a boutique hotel where guests rediscover a time where they live in another dimension, made of slow gestures, new visions and mysterious voices: zash, splash, cucù, crag, ciuf, druum, pluf – the instinctive and hidden sounds of nature. To be surrounded by the volcano stones and scents of orange blossom, then all is quiet. It is the pleasure of life.

Elegant, slow and silent

The aim of the design concept of the architect Antonio Iraci and Carla Maugeri was that elegant historical fragments meet the contemporary. The 17 rooms which include 8 suites, bring out the physicality of nature respecting the traces of the past. The majesty of Mount Etna and the transparency of the sea are the two strong contrasts that join together in the micro territories of this splendid side of Sicily.

This concept is carried through to the culinary experiences of the hotel. The Zash Restaurant is located where time has stopped: a special cozy intimate space. Where wine was fermenting in the old days, guests can experience the slow dimension of tastes, space and times. The Chef Giuseppe Raciti and his team mix creativity, tradition and territory to create the one star Michelin cuisine.

Inside the Nature at Zash there is the Zash’s nature: a retreat for contemporary wellbeing. Experience the outdoor pool with Etna view or the silent lemon garden. The pool is made of Etna lava stone, strong and powerful. Bare feet touch the water and feel the wood, while the warmth of intimate spaces meets the local aromas. At the Zash’s Spa area guests can immerse themselves in the nature with a yoga class at the orange garden or have a massage, nothing is left to chance.

In this intimate and private retreat, the combination of Mediterranean and volcanic influences will make the relaxing experience unique.

Best Room – Pool Villa Spa

The Pool Villa Spa express the concept of the Country Boutique Hotel at the fullest. The 40m2 suite is separated from the main building and offers absolute privacy with a terrace with private bath and an exclusive view of the Etna and the sea.
