With great attention to detail, a 200-year-old hay barn was revitalized here. All beams, floorboards and paneling were removed, repaired and rebuilt completely true to the original. The interior is a mix of modern design and antique furniture. The larch wood terrace features a heated pool and a panoramic sauna with views of the surrounding mountains. The large windows give the house something airy, a fireplace provides a cozy atmosphere in winter - and on sunny days nothing stands in the way of an outdoor breakfast under the old wooden gable. The "Stadl Wuggitz", which is part of the premium vacation homes "Pures Leben", is a romantic retreat for two people, breakfast included.
