Holidays in Castelrotto – The popular holiday region in South Tyrol
Covering an area of approximately 11,000 hectares, the community of Castelrotto is located right in the heart of the fabulous alpine landscape of the Dolomites. The scattered and picturesque villages of the municipality are situated in the area around Mount Sciliar, nestled between the Isarco Valley and the Gardena Valley. The enchanting landscape of the Alpe di Siusi – the largest mountain plateau in Europe – covers almost half of this community area. Our idyllic farm Tirlerhof is surrounded by this unique natural scenery, and offers – in summer and in winter – countless ways to spend fantastic and natural farm holidays in South Tyrol.
In order to explore the beautiful postcard scenery of the Alpe di Siusi, you can simply walk to the bus stop in front of our family farm in Castelrotto and reach the cable car Alpe di Siusi by bus. A day full of natural wonders, sunshine and fresh mountain air in the Sciliar area is waiting for you!
Castelrotto – South Tyrolean hospitality wherever you go!
Don’t miss the opportunity to take a walk through this traditional and picturesque mountain village during your farm holidays. The village centre is situated within a 10 minutes’ walk from our farm. A landmark and a feast for the eyes is the 82-meter high baroque church tower in the centre of Castelrotto. The locals will tell you, rightly, that it has by far the most beautiful ringing of bells in the country.
In the village centre you can admire beautiful facades – traditional cafes and restaurants invite you to enjoy a break. The name of the main town of the region probably derives from the castle ruins, which were documented as early as the 10th century. The residents of this idyllic village live the South Tyrolean hospitality with all their heart and are justly proud of their beautiful village Castelrotto.
