Welcome to the Gruber farm

The farmhouse Gruber lies in a narrow green scenery between Bolzano and S. Genesio in a mediterranean warm climate. Here grow grapes, apples, chest-nuts, nuts.

S. Genesio is the village you can see from Bolzano high above the town to the north – west on the Salten high plateau of rolling hills and is served by a cable car. The Salten is the only european high plateau with such an expanse of sunny larch forest, it is a paradise for bikers, riders and provides grazing for the famous Haflinger horses which derive their name from the near village of Hafling.

The Gruberhof was built as a guesthouse 400 years ago, it is situated on an old road/ path connecting Bolzano to Sarentino valley for centuries. On their steep and tiring way to and from Bolzano people used to have a rest or to stay overnight here .. The guest-house lost it’s importance when 1853 the new road to the Sarentino valley was built along the river Talvera, Gruberhof-people lived on agriculture only.

In our small restaurant and agritourism we offer traditional cuisine with tipical dishes and drinks, in our comfortable rooms we wish you a quiet and pleasant stay in familiar atmosphere.

Our farm lies below the Salten, from here you can go for long walks or bike-tours. Children can enjoy themselves on our playground or in the woods around the house.

We look forward to meet you and wish you a pleasant stay!
