Villa Alvarium

Villa Alvarium

Villa Alvarium – located in a panoramic position on a sunny slope above Merano in South Tyrol – offers the most beautiful views of nature. This modernist style building features an apartment for 6 people on the garden level and a smaller apartment for 4 persons above. The living rooms of both apartments are fully glazed on two sides – blurring the boundaries between inside and out. The large glass surfaces have been framed with floors of walnut parquet and ceilings of exposed concrete. On the large sun terraces you can enjoy the mild climate and the panoramic views of the Meran valley – in the upper apartment even from the jacuzzi.

What to do

Hiking, playing golf in Lana (10 km) or in Passeier (15 km), visit towns of Merano and Bolzano. The most beautiful botanic garden in Italy (5 km). Spa in Merano, summer music festival in Merano and a wine festival in late autumn.

Why we like this house

Modern architecture that maximizes views of the natural surroundings. A harmonious combination of materials such as glass, wood and concrete.

This house is great for

Couples, families, holidays with friends

Sabine und Manfred sagt:
Die Wohnung besticht durch den tollen Blick durch die riesige Fensterfront über Weinberge in die weite Südtiroler Landschaft! Die Kücheneinrichtung bzw. -ausstattung ist sehr gut. Ansonsten ist die Wohnung eher funktional eingerichtet. Die Bäder sind ohne Fenster und sehr eng. "Sonnenanbeter" werden die beiden großen Terrassen genießen. Wir fanden es sehr bequem, dass die Anfahrt zu vielen Touristenziele sehr kurz ist; zum Trauttmansdorff Garten, in die Innenstadt von Meran, zur Gondel nach Meran 2000 usw.

Wir haben einen wunderbaren Urlaub in der Wohnung der Villa Alvarium verbracht. Die ganze Ausstattung ist auf Luxusniveau: von Küchengeräten über Möbel und Geschirr bis Matratzen. Der Blick ist umwerfend, die Lage ideal und zentral. Jos ist ein wunderbarer Gastgeber, der seinen Gästen jeden Wunsch erfüllt. Man ist völlig privat und es ist nicht ein Laut aus der darunter - oder darüber liegenden Ferienwohnung zu hören. Urlaubsentspannung pur. Wir kommen nächstes Jahr wieder!

Die perfekte Kombination zwischen einer tollen Wohnung in einer aussichtsreichen Lage, super Ausstattung (es ist einfach an alles gedacht) und einem - so noch nie erlebten - perfekten Gastgeber. Vielen Dank, Jos!

Ein ganz besonderes Refugium. Jos als"Hausherr" ist ein hervorragender Gastgeber, der unseren Urlaub völlig stimmig gemacht hat. Alles was unter "Warum wir dieses Haus mögen" zu lesen ist, trifft 100%ig zu. Wir kommen wieder.
