    Ellmau 35, 5611 Großarl · Großarltal Valley · Salzburger Land



    We are organic farmers by conviction! Our animals are fed purely organically and only spend the winter on the farm. During the summer they are on the mountain pastures in the valley.

    Single location

    Our organic farm is situated in a secluded location, embedded in the unspoiled nature of the Grossarl Valley, with over 40 managed alpine pastures.


    In the immediate vicinity there is an illuminated natural toboggan run. You can either hike up on foot with our toboggans, or you can be chauffeured by tractor.


    Each apartment has a cosy wood stove in the kitchen. Our guests not only enjoy the crackling of the fire, but also try to cook one or the other dish.

    About Us

    Far away from noise and stress, our cosy, rustic farmhouse lies embedded in the idyllic landscape of the Ellmautal, a side valley of Grossarl.

    Recover from everyday pressures while your children discover our "natural adventure playground".

    An illuminated toboggan run lies 3 km from our house, and we can provide sleds free of charge.

    Enjoy the outstanding cuisine of the hotel Lammwirt, only a 5 minute walk away.

    The entire house can be rented for large groups of up to 18 people. There is a connection between the two dwellings in the house.

    We look forward to welcoming you as our guest in the Palfenhof  farm!

    Our former farmhouse, which we rent out as a hut, was built entirely in timber construction and radiates a special flair - arrive and immediately feel at home in the Palfenhütte.
