Gasthaus Reichhalter 1477 Lana, South Tyrol - new design hotel guesthouse Italy

Imperfect Beauty

The boutique guesthouse 1477 Reichhalter has been a feature of village life for centuries and was a building crying out for someone to give it love without painting over its wonderful charisma of Alpine heritage and aged presence.

Today, 1477 Reichhalter is a shabby chic Gasthaus of salvaged originality created by local architect Zeno Bampi and designer Christina von Berg. An unassuming beauty whereby imperfection narrates the interior design of raw simplicity framed in a restful palette of chalked whites, copper green and soft greys from the milky to leaded pencil. Reichhalter embraces the cornerstones of its former life and the history pleasingly commands attention: the feel is utterly authentic without trying too hard – this is not an engineered refurb, it is crafted and palpable. Treasured furnishings, salvaged pieces, ceramics in cereal tones, muted linens in putty colours and a small library of well-turned books were all deliberately hand-picked for this house, and no other. Despite being a small guesthouse, this B&B is rounded off perfectly with sink-into-luxurious bedding and organic skincare from guru Susanne Kaufmann: adding a touch of indulgence to the clean puritan edit.
