Ansitz Hohenegg

At Ansitz Hohenegg you can leave everyday life behind you. This former farmstead on a mountain ridge in the Allgäu is surrounded by high spruces on a sunny clearing and promises pure relaxation, thanks simply its solitary location amidst nature. You reach the property on a path that leads uphill through the forest. In snowy winters, the car stays in the valley and you walk the last part (the luggage is transported for you).

The renovated and rebuilt farmstead houses four holiday apartments, which are characterized by spacious rooms, a harmonious balance of historical and modern elements and natural materials such as wood from the region, loden, leather and stone. Details with an alpine character such as antlers on the wall, chequered bed linen or traditional corner benches and chairs provide a local flavour without appearing kitschy.

The shingle house dating to approx. 1740 – the oldest part of the farmhouse – offers space for 8 people across almost 300m2. Especially the kitchen with its low ceiling and the original preserved knitted wooden wall boasts a lot of historical flair. In contrast, the living room on the first floor is characterised by its high, exposed roof truss, a large window front and an open fireplace. The shingle house has its own garden.

The three other apartments are located in the shed: The Stube Heuboden and the Stube Waldblick offer space for 5 and 6 people respectively and have a terrace or a spacious loggia. The Stube Wipfelglück in the converted roof truss is a loft-style retreat for two. The views over the clearing towards Lake Constance can even be enjoyed from the bathtub.

Between the Schindelhaus and the remise there is a small wellness area with a sauna and rest area, which is available to all guests.

What to do

Relax, sauna, experience and discover nature (beautiful landscape around the residence, e.g. the "Eistobel", a gorge from the ice age). In summer: hiking, cycling, art & culture in the historic towns of the surrounding area (Bregenzerwald / Lake Constance). In winter: winter hiking, snowshoe hiking, cross-country skiing, alpine skiing (ski in and ski out from the house to the Iberg lifts, a small, relaxed family ski area).

  1. Wir waren für 3 Tage hier – in der Stube Wipfelglück. Ein Traum – nicht nur aufgrund der schneereichen, autofreien Tage. Die Wohnung ist nicht zu übertreffen. Design, Ausstattung, Größe… wir sind alle drei Abende zu Hause geblieben, um jede Minute dort genießen zu können. Sauna und ‘Naschkastl’ haben wir auch fleißig genutzt – klasse! Die Abgeschiedenheit war für uns genau das, was wir gesucht hatten. Vielleicht kommen wir das nächste Mal im Sommer – sicherlich auch wunderschön!
    Die Vorabplanung, der Austausch und Kontakt waren außerordentlich zuvorkommend und freundlich. Danke für alles!

  2. Es waren 3 wunderbare Tage auf dem Ansitz. Mitten in der Natur, zum Entschleunigen einfach perfekt. Die Einrichtung eine Mischung aus modern und Hüttencharme. Besser könnte es nicht sein. Auch die Ausstattung der Küche und des Naschkasterl, perfekt. Die Gastgeber sehr nett und zuvorkommend. Es lief alles reibungslos. Wir kommen auf alle Fälle wieder, diesmal im Sommer zum Wandern.

    Wir sind verzaubert von diesem wunderbaren, liebvoll eingerichteten Anwesen! Besondere Lage, die eine Auszeit garantiert. Auto stehen lassen, loswandern und danach in der Sauna entspannen…wohlfühlen. Familiäre Atmosphäre, zuvorkommende Gastgeber und hilfsbereite, freundliche Mitarbeiter. Da stimmt alles! Danke, für das großzügige Naschkastl ;-) Wir freuen uns auf den nächsten Urlaub im Ansitz!
