Unwind at Mair am Ort living Hotel
Mair am Ort living Hotel is a sanctuary set in the small village of Partschins in the heart of the South Tyrol. Designed with luxury, elegance, peace and tranquillity at the forefront, the attention to detail is outstanding as are both the external and internal designs and the views.
Mair am Ort living Hotel has been lovingly restored by Martin and Doris Schiefer who inherited the family farm from Martin’s parents. A farm since the 15th century and latterly run as a guest house by Martin’s parents, the Mair am Ort and the Schiefer family have been welcoming guests to this beautiful area of the South Tyrol for many years.
Doris grew up as a hotelier’s daughter and spent 20 years in the fashion industry. Her background has helped her breathe new life into the walls of this lovely building and she has done so with a flair and elegance that is breathtaking. The general vibe of Mair am Ort living Hotel is relaxation and there are many corners of the hotel where one can sit and enjoy the peace, sip a coffee or aperol spritz (a Veneziano to the locals) while enjoying the view over distant Merano. Or simply swing on a sun lounger with a book.
Start the day in style in the sumptuous and modern breakfast area, where floor to ceiling windows offer views over the valley.
In the summer months enjoy breakfast on the extensive terrace that overlooks the large meadow garden which has 2 heated swimming pools, one for relaxing and the other for exercising.
Tranquillity is assured in the Zen-like surroundings of the wellness area with Finnish sauna, bio sauna and steam bath. Let your thoughts wander in the quiet room with its huge panoramic windows looking onto the pools and grounds, which have been arranged with an artist’s eye.
The rock gardens and meadow feature Mediterranean flora such as olive trees and cypresses. White butterflies float among the long grasses and honeybees busy themselves in the lavender and rosemary. There is ample space on the manicured lawns for sun loungers, chairs and day beds in which to unwind.
The Mair am Ort is clearly more than just a commercial business; there is a real family feel running through the hotel. Martin and Doris’s son Andreas is a graduate of the hotel school and he runs the restaurant “Buss’l & more” (Kisses & more in the German dialect) with his father, and together they have developed a mouth-watering menu and extensive wine list in a superb setting. Martin and Doris’s daughter Claudia also work at the hotel. Having left a fashion career to actively support the family business, Claudia works in the office with her mother, greets the guests and makes sure visitors have everything they need at breakfast.
There is a seam of pride running through the Schiefer Family when they talk about what they have achieved together, but most importantly what comes across resoundingly is that they are all extremely happy to welcome you to share and enjoy the superb and elegant sanctuary that they have created.
