Sonnwies is the perfect destination for families looking for an activity fueled mountain holiday with a touch of skiing.
Founded by the Hinteregger family in 1999, Sonnwies has grown organically from a small guesthouse on the ownerâ€™s farm to a modern familyâ€™s paradise. All meals are included as well as 70 hours of free childcare and access to the 1km beginnerâ€™s ski slope which lies adjacent the hotel.
Outdoor activities include snowshoeing, snowman building, ice-skating, tobogganing, pony riding and skiing. A weekly programme includes activities such as cooking classes, arts and craft, tending to the farm animals, pool parties, zip wiring.
One of the three childrenâ€™s swimming pools is outdoors and heated year-round. Two separate pools and a relaxation spa is reserved for adults and a family spa with a low temperature sauna is available for children.
Children can visit the hotelâ€™s original farm where they can feed the animals and collect their morning eggs from the henhouse. The Hinteregger grandmother teaches guests the art of butter churning and cheese-making in a hands-on class.
Sonnwies (www.sonnwies.com, T. +39 0472 413 533) offers rooms from €380 per night based on 2 adults and 2 children sharing on an all-inclusive meal basis. Ski hire and lessons from the on-site instructors are available at an extra cost.
Just 50 minutes from Innsbruck Airport by car, 15 minutes from Brixen with its well-connected train station and 5 minutes to the idyllic village of LÃ¼sen.
