Intro

Niedermairhof is no ordinary bed and breakfast; it is a wonderfully restored nest egg vision, with a combo of traditional heritage and classic designer pieces – complete with all the creature comforts of a dinky boutique hotel.

The project was in the hands of locally-based en.ar[tec].  Headed by lead architect, artist and skilled restorer Andreas Vallazza, Enartec is a multi-disciplinary design and planning studio. 

This 13th-century former farmhouse is today a bright and joyful affair, with lovely twisted wooden beams stealing the show as they pitch into the lofty suites. The surrounding beauty of Brunico (Bruneck) is pictured perfectly from the reinstated balconies where light floods in through the modern architecture that cleverly clings to the old chunky walls, framing the peaks of South Tyrol out yonder. 

Lime-washed white walls and polished parquet flooring create a canvas of nurtured neutrality – perfect for the staging of antiques paired with modern designer furnishings and salvaged objects. A den streaming with natural fun, joie-de-vivre and consummate style surrounded by the lush Italian meadows, snow-capped peaks of Alto Adige and of course the quaint little town of Brunico - this is Alpine living of impeccable taste.

Exposed beams, mid-century chairs, antiques and some with free-standing bathtubs, bring an air of designer luxe to a stay in the countryside

Rooms

Niedermairhof’s eight spacious loft suites and luxe boutique rooms are individually decorated and were designed with different parts of the former farmhouse, and elements of nature, in mind. Exposed beams, mid-century chairs, antiques and some with free-standing bathtubs, bring an air of designer luxe to a stay in the countryside.  

While views of the cornfield inspired the rustic earth colours in the Kühtrote suite, the vibrant tiles and flowery upholstery in In der Kehr were inspired by it being the first room in the morning to be lit by the sun.

The bounty of the lush South Tyrolean pastures makes an organic farm-to-table jump to the breakfast tables of the Niedermairhof. 

Naturally wholesome, flavour-packed simple food is prepared here with Alpine heart – wake up to eggs from happy hens, yoghurts and cheeses that taste of the Alps and of course freshly-baked loaves of bread.

Spa
