The only way is up! Follow that “sign” and you will inevitably reach your destination: Der Taxhof, an assortment of charming chalets scattered around a historic farmhouse sitting on a mountain slope at 1000 metres. Feel those holiday vibes kicking in right after your arrival because this place and its 500 year-old history is special. Mix in the fresh mountain breeze and the spectacular view of the opposite Kitzsteinhorn at 3.200 meters and you realize: This is definitely not a hotel. It`s an oasis.
“Unobtrusive. Classy. Contemporary.”
The two sisters Katharina and Elisabeth took over management of the family-owned Taxhof in 2010. A heartfelt meet & greet and a quick tour of the premises later, you move into one of the beautiful chalets or apartments. It is back to the basics … without roughing it. Or: Taking a break from ordinary tourism because while this may be a pretty resort, nothing is staged, everything is authentic.
Just keep in mind: The Taxhof is a real farm. There are cows, sheep, goats, donkeys, ponies, chickens, quails, rabbits and cats among the more permanent residents.
Taxhof offers a total of seven apartments or chalets for their guests. In the historic main house there are the two holiday apartments „Schenkammerl“ (46 sqm) and „Dachboden“ (90 sqm). The special feature of the Dachboden suite: thanks to the glass roof, you lie in bed under a starry sky at night. In the detached apartment house a little above the main house you find the two apartments Toni (84 sqm) for 4-6 people and Nanni (47 sqm) for 2-3 people, they can be connected if need be. The dreamlike „Troadkostn“ (the old wooden chalet) has 35qm, a private terrace and is perfectly suitable for a couple. Then, there is the architecturally elegant triple, the Hoistodl suite for 2-3 people and the spacious, somewhat more modern tree house suite (55 sqm) for 2-3 people.
The historic main house boasts two cozy parlours (and a wonderful sun terrace), where dinner is offered three times a week. The motto of the sisters: Simple, yet healthy and good. Mainly seasonal products are used, a lot, of course, coming from their own gardens.
On the other evenings you are welcome to stay there as well, the sisters have set up an Honesty Bar with drinks and they came up with a service to prepare healthy food for their guests in advance. This is quite special: The dishes are adapted to the number of people, you only have to warm them up for a short time and then you have a wonderful dinner. The matching wine is also available in the main house.
In the Dochbodn Suite, the apartments Toni and Nanni, the Tree House Suite and the Hoistodl Suite there is a private sauna. Otherwise, the 180,000 sqm wellness area of the Pinzgau mountains is free to use every day and highly recommended.
Families with and without children, who appreciate simple life in the mountains, who like to hike during the day and who want to have some peace and quiet in the evening with healthy and good food. Especially the Troadkostn Suite might also be an excellent and affordable refuge for young couples who appreciate holidays on the mountain
The small apartments and Troadkostn-Suite from 150 Euro, all others 225 Euro per night. Small surcharges for short stays or additional persons. Breakfast and dinner is on extra cost.
