Chalet is ideally located to axcess the local walks and an easy walk to the shops and bus stop to get to supplies and travel further afield. The advantage in getting a lift and bus pass as a combined ticket was fantastic but be aware that all the lifts generally stop for the summer on the last Sunday in September. Well recommended and would stay again if doing the same trip.

The flat is in a house in the middle of one of the prettiest suburbs of Merano. You can walk to the centre in half an hour on a path running among apple orchards and vineyards, or take the regular and frequent buses. There i everything you need in the suburb, from a couple of grocery shops to nice restaurants to ATMs. The flat is furnished in a fresh and practical way, with really nice touches like painted wooden furniture. It feels cosy and clean. The appliances are new and from really good brands. It is very well stocked in terms of dishes pans etc. You feel like you are staying in your own house rather than a holiday flat. The bed deserves a special mention, I struggle to sleep and slept like a baby there. It was incredibly comfortable! The owners also have a hotel 10 minutes down the road, where you can use the pool and spa for free. Although we never used them because we only stayed for days and our schedule was packed, they looked great. The view of the Merano valley from the pool was breathtaking. Staff at the hotel and the flat owners were extremely kind and pleasant to deal with. We felt lucky to have come across this flat. We hope to stay again int he future.
