Galtiner farm - farm holidays
A warm welcome at the Galtiner farm!
An unforgettable holiday paradise for your family surrounded by the South Tyrolean Dolomites and on the feet of one the most beautiful Alpine pastures of South Tyrol: the Rodengo Alps.
Our friendly and comfortable farm is embedded in the spectacular South Tyrolean Alps. It is situated in a sunny and quiet area and there is a breath taking view over the Isarco Valley and the Dolomites.
Our farm is the ideal starting point for mountain hikes in the untouched nature. Our slogan is: come as a guest - leave as a friend. Relax and enjoy. Forget the stress - recover your energy!
In the summer our young cows enjoy their "holidays" on the Alpine pastures of Rodengo. Our dairyman and maid Karl and Hermine take proper care of our cattle and are of great help with the harvest of the hay. This happens each year in July and maybe you feel like helping us. Depending on the weather conditions in September or October, the "homecoming of the cattle" takes place. At this occasion our animals are led from the mountain pastures and are decorated with prestigious bells. The major cow, decorated with flowers and the most beautiful bell, leads the group. Our dairyman distributes some local snacks, the "Minggelen" and liquor to the spectators. After five hours we await our dairy people and animals at the farm. Maybe once you're lucky enough to take part to this event.
A farm holiday at the Galtiner farm is not only a synonym of farm traditions, attachment to nature and warm hospitality, but it is also an opportunity to get to know our animals and our traditional Tyrolean food. Children can have a lot of fun on our playgrounds while the parents relax on the lawn.
There is also a barbecue possibility where you can enjoy staying together.
Personal care of our guests is very important to us.
Robert and Hildegard with their four children together with grandpa Ernst and grandma Berta manage the farm.
Our own and homemade products will cheer up your holiday:
fresh milk from our barn (also goat milk upon request), fresh eggs from our hen house maybe found by your own children, our farm butter made from the best part of our milk, our typical South Tyrolean "speck" - roasted ham, potatoes, meat, herbs, spices and lettuce from our farm garden.
We have renovated our farmhouse in 2006/2007. Now we are renting 3 new, sunny and large holiday apartments with balcony. We have furnished these apartments with a lot of wood and natural materials as well as with a lot of care for the details. In this way you can enjoy the flair of the countryside without renouncing the maximum comfort.
We are really looking forward to present you our farmhouse and hope you will enjoy reading our website.
We're looking forward to meet you very soon!
Hildegard and Robert
