Haller Suites & Restaurant

Brixen, South Tyrol, Italy

The Haller is located in Italy's northernmost wine-growing region and offers guests a wonderful view of the city of Brixen and the surrounding local mountains and vines.

The house already served the Pichler family as a farm in 1955. In the 90s, the farm was used as a guest house with a restaurant, at that time with 9 rooms. The house is now in the 3rd generation of the family and received a concept change with 18 suites and sustainability as a leitmotif due to the new construction and renovation in 2019. The hostess Teresa Pichler runs the Haller according to the motto: "Less frees you and creates space for the important things in life".

The aim of the hosts is to provide guests with a relaxing holiday as well as an inspiration for new recipes or ways to see life. The interior and design of the suites are modern and at the same time traditional-nostalgic. The fabrics and colors used reflect the closeness to nature and the courage to change.

You can find the hosts' favourite recipe to try in the kitchen whispers.

ArchitectureThe house was integrated into the vineyard behind by a terrace construction. This allows the guests to live in the middle of the vineyard - a special architectural experience. During the construction process, care was taken to ensure that the suites fit perfectly into the landscape. The house is 100% South Tyrolean handicraft, as we only work with regional partners. 70% of those involved even come from a radius of only 20 km. The house is located on the Sonnenberg in Brixen, but even if the sun shines strongly all year round, all suites can enjoy natural shade thanks to the pergola and terrace construction. This meant that there was no need to install air conditioning in the suites. In winter, the special design means that less heating is required. The Haller borders on a landscape protection project, which is why the conditions to be fulfilled for the architects were strict. Accordingly, natural materials such as larch, wood and stone from the South Tyrolean Eisack Valley were used. The house was awarded the “KlimaHaus A” building standard (seal of quality for residential buildings), which requires the use of natural and sustainable materials, such as vine leaves, in the interior. The refurbishment and renovation of the old building went hand in hand so that it could be converted to new heating systems.

FoodIn the kitchen, in particular, attention is paid to short distances and seasonality: many dishes come from the region and the menu changes depending on the season. Meat, fish, dairy products and grain come directly from South Tyrol. When buying vegetables, we also work with passionate farmers who share the same standards and therefore do not use any sprays or fertilizers. Eggs only come from organic free-range farming. Throughout spring, summer and autumn, you can use vegetables from your own garden. Particularly when breakfast is served, care is taken to ensure that there is no rubbish, as each guest is asked about their hunger levels and preferences. In this way, packaging material and 100% freshness and enjoyment can be guaranteed. The cooking style of the South Tyrolean cuisine in the "Restaurant AO" can be described as modern, with the stories of the individual dishes in the foreground. The slow food served has above all to do with the appreciation of the raw materials, whereby the dishes are always served puristically and with a lot of creativity - so there is always healthy, home-made and handmade. The menus contain vegetarian dishes, but vegan dishes are avoided, as this does not fit the Haller's philosophy, as the cuisine of the Alpine region lives on animal products for them and thus also the surrounding farmers who are supported.

The employees at the Haller are seen and treated as part of a large family. They are offered a free place to sleep seven days a week, and food is provided twice a day. Meals are prepared together and taken in peace, which strengthens the relationship and creates a special feel-good atmosphere, which the guests can also feel. As a relatively new house, not too many social projects could be supported, but there are some: For example, a certain amount is donated for each dish to an association that supports people from South Tyrol with severe communication impairments. Schoolchildren from South Tyrol also have the opportunity to complete further education or training in Haller. This is to be expanded in the future and thus, for example, enable cooperation with refugee homes by allowing refugees to work in Haller. In addition, all year round we collaborate with regional craft businesses, artists and associations and organize exhibitions and events together.

EnvironmentSustainability determines pretty much every decision at Haller: It starts with a "healthy house" and continues with the employees who come to work on foot, regional food or specially produced wine, so that the way to the house is as short as possible In addition, guests are recommended to travel by train, whereby they can change to the City Bus free of charge after their arrival in Brixen and ultimately do not need a car to get there. E-bikes are also available to guests free of charge on site. Green Energy is provided for the KlimaHaus by the district heating, which generates electricity and water through regional waterworks. The energy network systems store and generate heat that is generated during power distribution and thus heat the water in the Haller. The waste is consistently separated - all employees are trained to do this.

Well-BeingThe Haller deliberately does not offer a classic indoor spa in order to keep power consumption as low as possible. However, the outside area with a beautiful garden is perfect for relaxing, as it were as "wine wellness in the countryside". Yoga courses and Qi Gong lessons are held in summer. Massages can also be booked on request. E-bikes are available to guests free of charge, which can be used on long bike tours through the vineyards.
