Buehelwirt Ahrntal / South Tyrol


Where are we? 

In Ahrntal, a region that has been kept in its natural state of beauty in the north of South Tyrol. From Bruneck (ski-region Kronplatz) you drive for half an hour in a north-easterly direction – if it wasn’t for the massive Großvenediger, you would end up in Austria. Buehelwirt lies in the hamlet of San Giacomo, directly on an elevation called Buehel, to be precise. 

The new building

Buehelwirt in San Giacomo had been a traditional guesthouse. Before the renovation took place it looked, from the outside, just like any other guesthouse in the area, in which the locals went to drink a coffee after attending mass. When the granddaughter Michaela and her husband Matthias took over, they dreamt of an extension with generous rooms, which would provide a wonderful view to the pristine valley and soaring mountains. They bought the parcel of land below the house and had a friend draw up some blueprints. He is a well-known architect in South Tyrol. 

Bühelwirt vibes: A lot of nature, great biological food from the region, lovely rooms, a family friendly atmosphere and funny times.

Armin Pedevilla and his brother Alex went on to create a spectacular extension with 20 rooms, a very open, but cosy restaurant and a small wellness area with chill-out room and sauna on the ground floor. The new Bushel was opened in June 2017.

The rooms

All the rooms are not only very bright, but also very cosy. This is really quite astounding, when you consider that the rooms are furnished to the minimum and even the bathrooms are only finished in modern grout. It’s certainly a work of art and a great achievement  that although bare, these rooms immediately radiate a certain warmth and cosiness.. We also find the comfortable chairs by Prostoria very positive, which can also easily be turned into a bed within a matter of seconds.

For us it has always been a pleasure to stay in one of these rooms.

The kitchen

Buehelwirt places the emphasis on tradition in its restaurant, but still understands that you might want to have a light meal in the evening. On the whole, a very congenial mixture.

Ideal for

If there was such a thing as a blueprint guest for Bühelwirt: A young family with one or two kids, who don’t want a lot of fuss, but instead want to have a VERY relaxing holiday at the the foot of the mountain in the Alps of South Tyrol.

Pretty Hotels: Buehelwirt (Image 12)
Highly recommended: Due to the location of the hotel, beautiful nature and hikes to the peaks of the South Tyrolean mountains await you at the Bühelwirt.


With two small family friendly ski resorts around the corner, the Bühelwirt is a quite cool alternative to the common ski hotels. To reach the Klausberg Gondola, it’s only 8 – 10 minutes. And the litle bigger Speikboden resort is around 15 minutes by car. Both highly recommended, but of course: this is not the Arlberg.


Pets are generally not allowed at the Bühelwirt.


Double rooms available from 95 euros per person (main house) and 139 euros p.p. (in the new house) with half board. Complete price list with overview available here.
