About This Listing
The apartment is on the ground floor and has two bedrooms, a large living room/kitchen (incl. dishwasher) and a bathroom. Satellite TV (flatscreen) and Internet are available. There is a small pond for swimming next to the apartment.
Our mountainside house is built on a large plot of forest and meadow land (6000 qm / 64,000 sq ft) in Jenesien (San Genesio) at an altitude of 1200m (4,000 ft), about 15 minutes from Bolzano, South Tyrol. The house is set in a peacefully quiet clearing in the forest, right on the European long distance hiking trail E5 that connects Lake Constance (Bodensee) with Venice and Verona. There is a bus stop nearby (2 minutes); the shops and restaurants of San Genesio are about 8 minutes walk away and the cableway to Bolzano takes about 15 minutes. Bolzano's main attraction is Ötzi, the Iceman.
On-site parking is available for our guests. Towels and bed linen are provided, and upon your arrival you will also receive a hiking map of the region. We will also be happy to give you some hiking tips and recommend some good restaurants in Bolzano, San Genesio and the local area. The Langfenn, Lanzenschuster and Tschaufenhaus restaurants/cottages are all within 1.5 to 3 hours hiking distance and offer excellent and varied samples of South Tyrolean cuisine.
The hiking region extends from San Genesio to Hafling and Merano. The Salto plateau, with its sweeping alpine meadows and larch woods, is just a few steps from our house. Hiking over the Salto will afford you panoramic views of the high mountain ridges nearby. During the spring, the crocuses are a sight for sore eyes. They are replaced in the summer by an abundance of mountain flora, and during the autumn the larches turn a riotous red-gold, carpeting the hiking paths with their russet needles. In the winter, of course, the region is ideal for hiking through the snow.
Our house was featured in several German, Austrian and Italian architectural magazines in 2013 because of its self-sustaining energy supply and stunning countryside setting (see photograph in the "greenbuilding" magazine).
Our "neighbours" are five horses and we can arrange riding sessions for you if desired.
On another note, please be aware that everything in South Tyrol is in two languages: Italian and German. Our village is called 'San Genesio' in Italian and 'Jenesien' in German.
Smoking is not permitted in our apartment.
Minimum stay during the high season from June to October and over Christmas and New Year is one week.
Smoking is not allowed in our house.
Was soll man sagen...Erwartung übertroffen. Eine wirklich tolle Wohnung, mit einer wunderbaren Aussicht und zwei Spitzengastgebern. Rundum gelungene Woche in Jenesien. Herzlichen Dank an Bettina und Andreas
P.S. Wir kommen wieder
Es war ein ganz tolles Ferienhaus in genialer Lage ! Mit dem Auto ca. 15 Minuten von Bozen entfernt aber ohne große Problem zum erreichen. Von hier aus kann man perfekt zum wandern starten ! Ideal für Hundebesitzer die ein geeignetes Ferienhaus suchen ! Ganz ganz toll ! Wenn Ihr im Ort direkt essen gehen wollt geht in das Gästehaus zum Hirschen! Hervorragende Küche !!!
The apartment was lovely, exactly as it was shown although the views were even more beautiful, when they emerged from the clouds! Bettina was very welcoming, helpful with directions into town and friendly. As were their two beautiful dogs. We had a lovely few days there, and I would recommend it as lovely peaceful place to stay.
Thank you Andreas + Bettina for waiting for us with a warm and welcoming smile- even when my time of arrival email did not reach you till two days later . . . We loved the peace and quite of this very clean, tidy and spacious apartment with stunning views.
We didn't have the pleasure of meeting Andreas but Bettina was very helpful and they have a beautiful home with the lower level the suite that is rented. It's very bright, very spacious and clean. The area is beautiful though the road is a long/steep climb up from Bolzano :).
I would highly recommend this accommodation if you are looking somewhere out of the hecticness of the city.
