    Far from all the hustle and bustle, our farm with our newly and comfortably renovated holiday home is nestled in the peaceful and idyllic mountain landscape of Grossarltal.

    The town centre of Grossarl is only 5 minutes away by car.

    The Hotel-restaurant Schiederhof is just 2km away and is perfect for a leisurely dinner. Take care of the shopping at the butcher's and grocery shop, just 1km away.

    The Marachhof's 4 generations are delighted to welcome you and your family and to make your holiday here unforgettable.

    Whether it's an impressive mountain tour, exhilarating bike tour or simply a romantic walk through the nearby woods, our farm is the perfect starting point for all these activities and more.

    In summer, you are welcome to enjoy our beautiful garden, with large sunbathing lawn. Allow your body and mind to relax whilst the children tire themselves out playing in our own play area or discovering nature's hidden adventures.
