Outstanding contributions

The Blasla Hof offers apartments and chalets, a cave swimming pool, sauna and hay bath, with a central stube providing a buffet breakfast and some evening meals.  There are opportunities for communal cooking and learning with the hosts to make local specialities such as knödel dumplings.  The Bio Hotels certification requires comprehensive management of resources and CO2. The business is climate neutral, with 100% green electricity. Products used are organic and locally sourced.

The enterprise has tried to maintain traditional practices in construction and furnishings. Natural materials are used, such as wooden floors and furniture, walls of stone and fragrant Zirmholz wood, and the use of sheep wool and hay in insulation, fabrics, beds and pillows.  Items are handmade and based on genuine South Tyrolean craftwork.   The purchasing of produce (eggs, milk, cereals, bread, honey, bacon, sausage, vegetables, cheese, herbs, juice and wine) from a wide range of local farmers, strengthens the regional economy.
