— How would you describe Villa Kaltern Grande in a nutshell?

Florian: “Villa Kaltern Grande is one of two luxurious villa rentals in Kaltern, a beautiful Alpine village in South Tyrol. Formerly the garden house of a noble palace, architect Prof. Walter Angonese transformed it into a first-class architectural sensation that can host up to 10 guests. The villa rental caters to a variety of guests and there have been wedding celebrations, family gatherings with small children or pets, and larger families.”

— Please tell us about the villa rental and the rooms.

Florian: “Villa Kaltern Grande is the bigger of the two villas and set into a soothing Mediterranean garden with sunbeds, a BBQ station, and an herb garden. The calming view southward overlooks the surrounding vineyards and rolling hills, while set right behind the villa is the big palace, which has also been restored back to its former glory. The spacious living and dining area make up the heart of the villa, right next to the fully equipped kitchen. There is one bedroom located on the ground floor that comes with a private bathroom. The other bedrooms are on the upper floor. For a full booking, the extra sitting room on the upper floor can be converted into a fifth bedroom, sharing a bathroom with one of the connecting bedrooms.

The villa has a beautiful shaded terrace as well as two balconies, one sun-kissed as it faces the south and the other on the much cooler north side of the house. From the terrace you’ll overlook the market square and the church in Kaltern’s town centre.”

— Please tell us about the facilities and services offered at the villa.

Florian: “There is our environmentally friendly electrolysis swimming poo and a sauna. The garden is big and full of Mediterranean plants such as olive trees and cypress. There is the big wine cellar with a variety of local fine red and white wines where we offer wine tastings. Villa Kaltern Grande is fully equipped, guests have access to a washing machine and there is Wi-Fi and air conditioning in the house, as well as a TV and three parking spots in the underground garage. Also, for those who want to bring their dogs, they are more than welcome to do so.

We can also take care of our guests’ grocery shopping and cooking. For example, when we had some guests staying with us who were celebrating their 50th anniversary, we organized dinner and breakfast for them. Whatever is needed, we try to help by providing a cook for an evening, or helping with recommendations on restaurants and things to do in the area.”

— Please tell us about the interior design and general atmosphere.

Florian: “Our ideal was for the two villas to be turned into luxury rentals that exude a cosy atmosphere, with warm colours, lots of Italian influences, and a mixture of Mediterranean and Gothic Renaissance styles. That is exactly the kind of environment one will find in Kaltern and the south of South Tyrol as well. The architect we worked with put great emphasis on the villas’ interior designs as well as bringing in custom-made furniture, either local or from Italy. We had also consulted an artist in regards to colours. Both of them had worked together before and did a wonderful job.”

— To you personally, what do you think is so special about the villa?

Florian: “The location of the villa is one of the things that make it so special. The view is amazing and even though we are centrally located, it still feels away from any town hustle and bustle. For those guests who enjoy preparing their own meals, they can easily walk to town and buy the best local produce without having to go far. The Mediterranean garden with its beautiful, quiet and private atmosphere is also wonderful.”

— What is your background and what was your inspiration to rent out both the villas?

Florian: “We have always loved special places and beautiful furniture and therefore wanted to create something uniquely charming. When we had the opportunity to buy this property, we realized that we liked the city centre, but with a quiet atmosphere. Together we decided to give it a try for the next 10 to 15 years and see how guests receive the villas.”
