Holidays at Tirol’s most beautiful mountain farms

For city dwellers more familiar with billowing fumes and thick smog, the smell of fresh cow dung and hay drying conjures up associations with nature, country living and total relaxation. There is no better place to experience nature at first hand than on a Farmstead Holiday in Tirol.

The cry of the cockerel at sunrise, the sound of cowbells jangling on the mountain pastures, the aroma of freshly baked bread emerging from the oven – holidays in the countryside are the best way to escape the hectic schedule of daily life and get back to nature. That is why we have put together a selection of farms in Tirol which offer visitors a chance enjoy peace and quiet in stunning natural surroundings far from civilisation.

Each farmstead is unique in its own way. For example, the Tassenbacherhof has a huge modern holiday apartment the size of three large flats. At the Kräuterbauernhof Sagenschneider’s, guests can explore the enchanting world of herbs in the company of a trained herb expert. Many of the farms presented – such as the Tiefhof, which lies on an ancient smugglers’ trail – enjoy isolated locations high up in the mountains. And what you do on holiday is, of course, entirely up to you. Whether you decide to sleep in or rise early to help the farmer milk the cows, a farmstead holiday will leave you refreshed and revitalised.

Farmstay holiday

With fresh air and fine views, local attractions and great fresh food, farmstays provide Tirol country living at its best. You will find Farmstay Tirol signs outside 400 working farms all across the country. Farm holidays are fun for the whole family, especially when the children can get involved with various activities. Child-friendly farmstays provide lots of hands on experiences for children. Kids get to hunt for eggs for breakfast, feed the goats and watch the cows being milked - and that's before lunch! It's a relaxing and fun-filled family holiday.

19 of the 400 Tirol farmstay farms take pride in offering child friendly holidays with little ones free to run around in safe child-friendliness: In peaceful locations, off the main roads and surrounded by lovingly tended gardens, wonderful playground facilities and a host of friendly farm animals, they are brimming with everyday necessities for little ones. Education is the main advantage of a farmstay experience, although your kids won’t think of it as learning because they’ll be having too much fun. The farmers lead mini-guests on their morning rounds hand feeding the animals and collecting the eggs – the highlight of many a junior guest’s stay!
