The Niedermairhof in the Puster Valley of South Tyrol was an old farmhouse that had been converted into an inn many years ago. Now, following a fifteen year hiatus, it has reopened its doors as a bed and breakfast. This historic building, the foundations of which date to the 14th century, has been renovated with great attention to detail. The house has been almost completely gutted within the upper floors. The collar beam roof truss, the façade, windows and the porch have all been restored or reconstructed. A modern annex and new windows in the attic rooms are proof that the house has very much arrived in the 21st century. The combination of old and modern is also evident in the eight individually designed suites. Here antique furniture is combined with contemporary design. Historic murals are featured, old roof beams are used as room dividers, and the historic tiled stoves have been converted into radiators. Each room is decorated with a different theme and has its own personal touch, for example a large aquarium built into the room divider between the bathroom and living area in the “Weiher-Zimmer” (pond-room), a table made of rock in the “Alm-Suite Coldeboi”, and floral elements in the meadow rooms “In der Kehr”.
A wellness area has been created in the old barn. A large glass front allows a view of the rustic wooden beams; the former silo walls are staged like a work of art. A sauna with a view, an extra-large shower, a private terrace and a relaxation area with a seating unit by the fireplace invite guests to relax. The barn offers complete privacy. It can be booked in addition to the rooms (for a maximum of six guests).
