With just eight bedrooms, hotel 1477 Reichhalter is a guesthouse for travellers who favour authenticity, tradition and calm. Located in the centre of Lana—an ancient fruit-growing village in South Tyrol, northern Italy—guests can enjoy the countless orchards and vineyards that surround the town, the mountain landscapes close by, as well as the local café culture scene.
Owned by the Dissertori family, who are keen to continue the history of the beautiful house from the present and on into the future, guest rooms have been named after former owners and are designed with restraint and a knowing nod to the past; each offering contemporary amenities including Marshall Bluetooth speakers and Simmons Beautyrest® mattresses.
Simplistic yet elegant and memorable, the bedrooms here at 1477 Reichhalter are a space for tranquility and mindfulness, the hotel’s ethos being “less is more, if the quality is right,” and with local artworks hanging on otherwise bare walls—often bearing patina of more than half a century of history—coupled with crisp white linen and a neutral colour palette, it’s a sentiment you can’t help but get right onboard with.
Guests can dine at the property, the restaurant open from breakfast through dinner and carrying all the hallmarks of eating in a friend’s home; amiable hosts Martina and Andreas Heinisch treating those who eat here as welcomed friends from morning to night. Serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and cake in-between, locally sourced ingredients are used to create a Mediterranean-inspired menu that rotates weekly. Popular with locals who pop-in for an afterwork cocktail or pre-dinner tipple, this is the place to interact with an authentic community of likeminded souls.
Situated at the foot of Braunsberg Castle in timeless Lana, allow 1477 Reichhalter to supply your disconnection from modern life; if only just for a couple of days. A little longer, and you might not want that old life back.
