The Giatla house belongs to a mountain farm in Vilgratental in East Tyrol. The over 300-year-old farmhouse has been carefully renovated and large parts of the the house have been maintained in their original character. Set between the traditional front and the back with its old stable door you will see the modern east façade with large windows.
The symbiosis of old and new is also reflected inside the four apartments. In front of the old windows new windows have been installed into the wood panelling of the rooms. The apartments have a modern ambiance with bespoke furniture in linear design and textiles in a single accent color. Only natural materials have been used: wool as insulation and in the mattresses and duvets, walls and floors made of wood, solid wood furniture made of spruce and Swiss pine.
In the attic of the house is a spa with Finnish sauna and infrared cabin. In the “fresh air room” with panoramic views of the mountains you can relax in a wool or hay bed.
