Welcome to our feel-good oasis

“B&B Unterhabsbergerhof” at Lake Monticolo near Appiano
Are you looking for a regenerating time out, a hidden idyll far away from the hustle of everyday life?
You feel the need to escape into nature? Then the B&B Unterhabsbergerhof
is the right place for you - a calming, soothing natural environment that grounds you and
gives you new inner strength!

Peaceful, forgotten, almost sentimental, our small B&B is nestled admits vineyards near
the Monticolo Lakes in Appiano. The nature reserve “Montiggl forest” invites you to take
long, revitalizing forest hikes and to explore the surroundings by bike.
Put on your swimsuit and explore the Monticolo Lakes…Dive into the fresh lake water and swim a lap!
Or would you prefer to read and relax in the garden?
Explore, discover, linger, talk, live...

The Unterhabsbergerhof is an inn full of history and time. It has been carefully and
elegantly renovated into eight spacious and unique suites and rooms, where modern
design meets rural old buildings.
A restful night is followed by a joyful awakening – just be curious! Enjoy my breakfast prepared with love
and creativity, full of little surprises, just for you, never perfect, but always heartfelt. Take your seat outdoors,
in the sun or under the parasol - wherever you want to enjoy it!
The evening has a lot in store…A visit to a fine restaurant? A delicious pizza?
Or just a refreshing aperitivo? At the lake, in Appiano, Caldaro, Termeno or even in Bolzano?
You are free to wander wherever your heart takes you!

From our childhood we remember less the presents, but more the experiences.
Take time for yourself to create new, unique and unforgettable moments.
I can’t wait to have you as my guest!


My breakfast...prepared with love!

Every morning the fresh smell of breakfast will magically wake you up. Before you indulge in the morning delicacies of the Unterhabsbergerhof, take a revitalizing run in the nearby jogging trails or enjoy a refreshing swim in the Montiggl Lakes to regenerate your body and soul! As we all know, the idea of waiting for something makes it even more exciting! If you are used to a cosy and relaxed start into the day, you will appreciate the peace and quiet that simply puts you in a good mood! Find your own, comfortable place in the Mediterranean garden, in the meantime I will spoil you with my homemade, seasonal and regional delights. Do you prefer crunchy, fruity or savoury treats? Various cakes, omelettes and egg dishes, a good cup of coffee or a regenerating South Tyrolean herbal tea are just waiting to be tasted. All this and much more awaits you at the B&B Unterhabsbergerhof!
