Feldthurns, South Tyrol, Italy

In the middle of the Dolomites in beautiful South Tyrol, on a sunny hill, surrounded by lush greenery, lies a very special place.

The Dietrichhof - a bsunders Platzl - is an idyllic refuge that authentically combines tradition and sustainability. Szilvia and Reinhard Rauter took over the farm from Reinhard's parents in 2010 and have been running it in an ecological way ever since. Since 2019, it has been possible to stay overnight in the four newly built guest pavilions, which are made from local and natural materials such as wood, straw, lime and clay.

The accommodations, named after the elements earth, fire, water and air, are minimalist and cozy at the same time. The pavilions have their own kitchens and offer a quiet retreat. The round shape of the pavilions and the materials used make you feel like you are in a cocoon. The large windows let in a lot of light and at the same time offer a breathtaking view of the surrounding nature.

Every morning at the Dietrichhof begins with a view of the majestic Geisler peaks of the Dolomites. Guests can also look forward to a breakfast every morning with mainly home-made products, including freshly fragrant bread from the village bakery. The large panoramic terrace is the meeting point for all guests. Here you can simply marvel and enjoy at any time of the day.

For those seeking relaxation, the farm offers a variety of relaxation methods such as massages, sauna and Qigong, while adventurous guests can set off on hikes or bike tours directly from the farm. The pleasant peace, the warm hospitality and the exceptional proximity to nature make this place a special place.

FoodThe majority of the food is produced on the farm or sourced from regional suppliers. This supports the local economy and reduces the carbon footprint associated with transporting food.
