Villa Mayr

Villa Mayr in Vahrn near Brixen, South Tyrol is a house steeped in history. The building, which is more than 400 years old, used to be the summer residence of the Hotel Elephant in Brixen and was converted into a boarding house in 1878. One of the most famous guests was the composer Gustav Mahler, who is today commemorated by a suite bearing his name. The architecture and design firm bergmeisterwolf has transferred the building into the present and created a symbiosis of old and new.

Iselhof

Mountain world and city life, tradition and modernity—a holiday at Iselhof in Lienz in East Tyrol has many facets. You live in the midst of greenery, but it only takes a few minutes to walk to the centre of the small town. The listed ensemble consisting of a 13th century manor house, a historical Stadl (the former farmhouse) and the contemporary Villa Notsch is situated on a huge plot of land directly adjacent to the glacial river Isel. The historical Stadl was refurbished and converted into residential units. It gives now home to two holiday flats.

Sankt Unterholz

Plenty of nature, few people: In the Uckermark region in north-eastern Germany, you can easily leave everyday life behind.

Both are possible at Haus Sankt Unterholz in the village of Kraatz, which is situated in the Uckermark Lakes Nature Park. The former stable on the site of a typical settlement cottage from the 1930s was renovated according to ecological standards and converted into a holiday and seminar house. On 150 square metres and distributed over two levels, the house offers room for 8 to 12 people…

ilse. dein landloft

Staying in the ilse.dein landloft apartment feels like living in the countryside—but with an urban touch! On the island of Rügen, Maike and Ralf Haug converted a historical farmhouse located near the residential town of Putbus and now live in part of the building themselves. They have converted the former stable into a 120-square-metre holiday apartment. Its name reminds of the owner, Ilse, who lived in the farmhouse all her life. Today, Ilse would barely recognise her old barn. Where chickens, pigs and a cow used to be stabled, rooms have been created which are furnished with great attention to detail, creativity and a sense of humour…
