During your farm holidays in Val Pusteria you can open the door and take a step towards nature – our farm is the ideal starting point for all kinds of sport activities, for walks through the nearby meadows and woods, for excursions to traditional alpine huts, for the adventure “Kneipp” in crystal clear mountain water and for challenging hikes in the mountains of Tesido and Val Casies. You can make a comfortable ride or a demanding tour along the cycling paths, breathe in the fresh mountain air and just feel at home during the most beautiful time of the year.

Experience the sound of the creaking of the snow during the sun rise with your cross-country skis on the slopes directly on our farm’s doorsteps. Discover the ski resorts Plan de Corones/Kronplatz (10 minutes away) and Monte Elmo/Helm in Alta Pusteria/Hochpustertal valley (20 minutes away), crest the lonely mountain peaks with your skis or make a funny run with the sledge with your children – the Marenklhof farm offers everything, from active to relaxing holidays with your family, to ensure you have amazing farm holidays in Tesido/Taisten.

We are looking forward to welcoming you!

Children’s paradise or active holidays

On our spacious land around the farm children can romp around, feed the cows in the stable, stroke the cat and become a real animal lover. Watch the old farmer Peter during milking or go for a spin in the big tractor with the farmer Egon. Your children become small explorers: they enjoy a lot of adventures while sliding, swinging and building sandcastles in the children’s playground and learn to ski with a professional ski instructor on the local ski run “Guggenberg” in Tesido/Val Pusteria.

Enjoy your farm holidays on our large lawn for sunbathing and relax in the shadow on the sun protected terrace. At the end of the evening under the starry sky you can have a comfortable barbecue with the woman farmer Martina and enjoy the homemade delicacies as well as herbs from our herb garden.

Remain active and experience the diversity of sport activities of our alpine living environment.

During a relaxing walk through the village you will discover a lot of different cultural sights such as the 800-year-old Church St. George, the parish church of Tesido, the relic shrine, Ruin Thurn and Castel Welsperg, an old seat of the counts with an amazing view towards the Vallandro/Dürrenstein peak in the Dolomites of Braies/Prags.

Everything is nearby:

The bus station to go to the village of Monguelfo/Welsberg and the stop for the ski bus are nearby. The bank and a small supermarket for daily purchases can be reached within a few minutes of walk.
