Located on a sunny and quiet plateau, in the middle of apple orchards and fields with a wonderful view on the mountains of the Passeier valley, we present you our chalet.
Our holiday home consists of a spacious living room, two bedrooms, one big sleeping couch and two bathrooms. The chalet can host 4-6 people. All the rooms are at ground level and easily accessible.
In the living space there is a kitchen with a ceramic hob, an oven, a dishwasher, a fridge and freezer, a coffee machine, kettle, cutlery and other cooking utensils.
There is also a table, a sleeping couch for two people, a flat screen TV with a satellite reception and a coat stand. Wi-fi is available in the whole apartment. Then, there are two bedrooms built mainly with our own wood that creates a cosy and comfortable atmosphere.
One room is equipped with a safe and both rooms have got separate bathrooms.
The big patio in front of the house can be used by our guest to unwind on sun loungers. There are also parking spaces right in front of the entrance.
Our farmhouse and entailed estate Ebnerhof is a traditional farm that has been owned by our family, the Schmidhammers, since 1784. In 1986, we were awarded the so-called “Erbhofurkunde”, a document that displays and proves the estate’s status. The premises consist of our meadows, fields, a part of the wood, tool sheds, various stables, a mill and a small chapel. Recently, the newly built chalet has become a part of the estate.
Our new chalet was built in the place of the old shed. The timber for it was taken from our own wood on the premises. Modern comfort and traditional elements have thereby merged into a unique symbiosis, creating a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere.
As sustainability was indeed vital for us, the chalet is heated with help of a wood chip heating system run on logs from our own wood. We built the chalet according to the latest energy standards and it has therefore been assigned a certificate designated for climate houses (Klimahauszertifikat).
Our farm is surrounded by apple orchards that are cultivated all year round. Next to the farm house there is a big meadow used for sheep grazing. On the farm, we keep hens, bees, cats and our farm dog Laika.
The chalet is located above the village Saltaus at the entrance of the Passeier Valley. It is situated in a beautiful paradise for hitchhikers and trekkers, only 5oo metres from the valley station of the Hirzer aerial tram. Within a few minutes, the Hirzer aerial tram takes you 1.500 m higher, right to the heart of one of the most amazing hiking areas in the Merano district.
If you prefer a more relaxing day you can also go on a shopping spree in Meran, the famous health and spa resort that offers some beautiful sights. It is indeed popular due to its spa baths (Thermen) and the famous Gardens of Trauttmannsdorff Castle. Alternatively, you can go for a walk on the promenades next to the Passer or cycling on the various cycle paths.

The small village of Saltaus is a part of the bigger St. Martin at the entrance of the Passeier valley. It is only a twenty minutes-drive away from the spa town of Meran. Due to its aerial tram Hirzer, Saltaus has become a starting point for trekking routes of various grades of difficulty. A few minutes on foot from the village there is the river Passer along which you can easily walk or go by bike to Meran or St. Leonhard.
Meran is located only a 20- minute drive from Saltaus. Due to its mild and Mediterranean climate Meran has been popular for decades. The town is famous for its medieval arcades (the so-called Lauben/ portico) as well as its famous spa bath, the Thermen, and the castle of the gardens of Trauttmansdorff.
This modern museum is dedicated to the South Tyrolean patriot and popular hero Andreas Hofer- indeed, it is located in his birth place. Next to various items and exhibits there are also some interactive approaches that depict the rural side of the Passeier valley. Ideal for a bad weather day, it is a good way to get to know Passeier‘s history and culture.
A one- hour car drive away, the picturesque village Pfelders, a family friendly ski resort, offers an ice rink, a toboggan run, a cross country track and a children’s ski lift. Thanks to an innovative mobility concept, it can be experienced without car traffic, as there are shuttles that take you to its centre. Not only children can enjoy this special place, also adults can experience its idyllic and romantic hiking trails and the steep downhill piste for experienced skiers. The place is also worth visiting during summer time.
