Hardly to believe that such a gem is so near!

The space
The ensemble encompasses three buildings whereas only the main house is currently available. The other two houses are vacant, offering a picturesque face. In 2013, the 200m² living area of the old farmers was authentically restored. We call it the „Retro-Chalet“ and it has pretty much about everything a cabin-heart desires:

A well-equipped and extremely comfortable kitchen for co-cooking and connected thereto an eating room for gluttons
A truly original Tiroler Stuben (note: not kitsch) with an splendidly oven (once fired keeps the heat up to 12 hours)
5 cozy, sunny rooms (4 doubles, 1 twin) equipped with old and to some extent also curious furniture
Infrared panels in the rooms provide all around like a fireplace for cozy warmth and healthy
A small wine cellar with beverages (self-recording) and a spacious pantry
Free WiFi, but no TV!
Separate men and ladies toilets and a laundry room with shower including underfloor heating
Firewood is prepared in the threshing floor - who wants feel free to chop wood (at your own risk;-)
A big terrace with a breathtaking view to the mountains for summer breakfasts, barbecues and chilling

Please note! Inspite of renovations we are still talking about a 400y old house. i.e. in order to maintain the authenthic character the walls and floors are still thin. Therefore the Retro-Chalet is for exclusive usage only to one group - you should like each other :-)

No question, this is luxury en different kind! But to give rise to any misunderstanding: we are still talking about a cabin atmosphere with character - the ambience pure and genuine, the furniture squeaks, the woodwork creaks and the views: incredible! A cabin experience in a class.

Cordially welcomes to the Tyrolean mountains!!!

PS: From August 2017 we can offer accomodation for further 27 persons in the same huge building. This 400m² area is in the same budilding (former barn) and is called CAMP

Location

Steinberg am Rofan, Tirol, Austria

As we are located not far from one of the most active touristic regions in Tyrol, there is too less space here to describe all the opportunities - just search for ACHENSEE.

However, the Retro-Chalet is embedded in the tiny village of Steinberg am Rofan, close enough (15 min) to the vital Achensee but distant enough to retreat. In Steinberg all things are more reduced but rich of charm.
The ski facilities are 70s alike. Within walking distance, two bar-lifts and one baby-lift provide nostalgic ski-days, by the way with reasonable prices fro families. A beautiful cross-country trail passes the Chalet, approriate for classic style as well as for sakters. It´s fun for the whole group to sledge down the nice natural toboggan run in the village, also at night.
During the hiking season (any but winter) several trails lead you around the village and upwards the impressing mountain area. Most of those trails are as well suitable for longsome moutainbike tours. For the kids in some 100 meters there is a little playground with football goals and climbing facilities.
Self-catering ist fine but maybe not always. In such a case just visit the inn yard in the neighborhood or the two other ethnic restaurants in Steinberg.

This list should of course to be continued but we guess can stop now as the true highlight is still the stunning Retro-Chalet with it´s cosy surroundings.

It´s my true mission to save a 400y old farmhouse-ensemble in the Tyrolean mountains from unrecoverable ruin. The target is to develop an unique community retreat for both - leisure and work. In 2013 the first part of the three buildings has been carefully and authentically restored. We call it the "Retro-Chalet" and it´s co-living like the old farmers for 10 persons, of course more comfortable. BRANDNEW: in the same building, in 2017 we have developped the 400m² old haystack towards an outstanding "Mountain Retreat" for additionally 27 friends of Alpine lifestyle.***BMWFW + EU: With the support of Republic of Austria and European Union*** Since 2014 I have the honor to be an airbnb Superhost, which of course spurs me also in the future on offering to my guests an unforgettable stay in the breathtaking Austrian Alps. Ich habe es mir zur Aufgabe gemacht, ein 400 Jahre altes Bauernhofensemble in Tirol vor dem Verfall zu retten und es als einzigartigen Rückzugsort für Communities zu entwickeln. 2013 wurde mit dem "Retro-Chalet" der erste Gebäudeteil behutsam und authentisch saniert. 2017 folgte, im demselben Gebäude, die Entwicklung des 400m² großen Heustadls zu einem neuartigen Berg-Retreat für weitere 27 Personen. ***BMWFW + EU: Mit Unterstützung von Bund und Europäischer Union*** Seit 2014 darf ich mich airbnb Superhost nennen, gleichermaßen Verpflichtung und Ansporn meinen Gäste auch in Zukunft einen unvergesslichen Aufenthalt in der atemberaubenden Bergwelt Tirols zu bereiten.
