Feuerstein, the brand new nature family resort in South Tyrol

Imagine a spectacular barn where children can jump free into the soft hay bed. That’s one of the exciting attractions proposed by Feuerstein Hotel, the newborn 5-star mountain resort designed for families, that aims to combine love for the South Tyrolean nature and authentic hospitality with an innovative vision of a holiday with children. Pouring waterfalls, snow-covered pastures, a fairy-tale lake, and all around the quiet peaks of Val di Fleres, a magnificent valley just a few miles from Vipiteno and the Brenner Pass welcomes the guests.

The structure, perfectly integrated with the landscape of Val di Fleres, overlooks a scenic bathing pond. It has 80 rooms, designed with untreated wood of the South Tyrolean valleys and handcrafted furniture. Kids of all ages are entertained with no computer or video game, but a whole program of activities inspired by the Montessori method.

Along with the barn, there’s a painting studio: a protected room where children can connect with their authentic creative expression. And then a wood workshop, where a carpenter is always available to teach kids to sawn, plan, carve, cut and shape sculptures or other wooden objects. A stube with a colorful sea of ​​hats, shoes and clothes for those who love to dress up. There’s also a family spa, a baby pool for babies, a didactic pool for diving or playing with an underwater memory game, and an indoor action pool with a 100 meter slide.

Parents with toddlers are offered a daily support of qualified staff, a baby department (where moms can breastfeed or change diapers) equipped with cushions for nursing, baby heaters and stove, and a kids’ restaurant with freshly made baby food.

Children can learn to move the first steps on the ski with the help the treadmill and lessons, while the nearby Ladurns ski area is ideal for improving the technique. For non-skiers there’s hiking in the alpine and sledging. For parents who want to chill out and detox, genuine products of the valley with home made juices, ice creams, jams, syrups, breads and a panoramic yoga-loft.

If you’re looking for the ultimate spot to spend a relaxing holiday on the snow with the family, Feuerstain is definitely for you!
