The two villas are located on the edge of the historic center of the wine village of Kaltern am See. Stores, restaurants, bars, ice cream parlors, bakeries, butchers, pharmacies, wine shops and a public bus stop are all within a 2-3 minute walk. Nevertheless, you live in absolute privacy. 

Kaltern am See is located in South Tyrol, a land at the crossroads of German and Italian culture.
It is also a land of scenic extremes. Rugged and barren, with the Dolomites (UNESCO natural heritage), where the mountaineering legend Reinhold Messner earned his first spurs, and the eternal ice, where the 5000-year-old glacier mummy “Ötzi” was found. 

The landscape in the south is characterized by picturesque wine villages, imposing castles and numerous historic residences. If you didn't see the Schlern, the Rosengarten and a corner of the Marmolada in the distance and hear most people speaking German, you would think you were in Tuscany.

Kaltern's local mountain is the Mendel, accessible by funicular and an ideal starting point for numerous hikes. Just 2 km to the south is Lake Kaltern, the warmest bathing lake in the Alps.

In and around Kaltern there are many of the best wineries and wine producers in South Tyrol.

From a culinary point of view, you are spoiled for choice: from rustic, rural pubs to typical Italian pizzerias and Michelin-starred restaurants, everything is within easy reach.

South Tyrol's winemakers and chefs have been among the most award-winning in Italy for years.

Highlights are offered throughout the year: from concerts and music festivals to village festivals and culinary weeks to living traditions and challenging sporting events.

Detailed information is available from the local tourist office.
