In 2019 hosts Carmen and Klaus Alber from the renowned Miramonti Boutique Hotel above Merano acquired the villa of Monocle founder Tyler Brulé, which is located in the directly village. A short renovation later they turned it into the perfect vacation home. The great thing about this property is: Brulé not only left them the beautiful house, but also the entire interior including a magnificent art collection. Think staying in a lively Art Gallery. In the middle of the most beautiful area of Merano mind you – Obermais has always served as the playground for the rich & famous. Add to that palm trees and pine groves, a view of the mountains, a large garden and you are in for a treat.
The second highlight of the property: Those who rent Villa Fluggi have access to the huge wellness area at the Miramonti Boutique Hotel (some 12 minutes up the hill by car). At the Miramonti you find a heated outdoor saltwater pool, a Japanese onsen pool, panoramic sauna, steam bath, gym and yoga spaces. Or: never leave the villa and instead book various services of the hotel (e.g. your own chef or breakfast).
The house boasts three floors, with five bedrooms and three bathrooms. Meaning Villa Fluggi can easily accommodate up to 10 people. Since it was formerly used in three different living units, the individual floors are separated from each other by a staircase, which means that grandparents and children also have enough peace and quiet and ample space for me-time. There are also two living rooms, a study and a stylish, beautifully furnished children’s room.
Especially fans of retro design will fall in love with the house. In addition to classics such as the Thonet chairs in the dining room, you will find several mid-century design gems in the Villa.
