We are a family who run a little farm in South Tyrol.
The farm is located in Pfalzen, 3.5 km outside the village centre at an altitude of 1.200 m. The senior farmers live at farm, they take care of 2 cows with their calves and maintain the farm. Also 3 cats and some chicken are part of it.
We, the younger son (Reinhard, 35) and his companion (Christa, 36) live with their two boys (2,5 and 5.5 years old) in a row house in the village centre. We are responsible for the raspberry field at the farm, which isn’t big, but needs a lot of care.
You can stay with us in the village centre. Help me with the kids or in the household. In summer and autumn there is also help needed at the farm. The connection in the village is good. A bus goes every half an hour to Bruneck. And I would also like to show you around or make little excursions, which are possible with the kids too.
Our mother tongue is German, but we are also capable of Italian and English.
If you are interested in staying with us, giving us a helping hand and to enjoy our beautiful surrounding, contuct us. We look forward to hearing from you!
PS: We would need a workawayer LAST MINUTE between the 14th and 26th of May for about a week. Just write if you are interested.

We are pleased to show you our little world.
If its not your mother tongue, you can learn German, get to know our surrounding...
Usually it’s quiet, but in summer when the raspberry harvest starts, also we become busy and are happy about any help. The main harvest starts in July till the mid of August. After the harvest, we have also to cut the plants.
In this period we have different tasks to perform: to pick the raspberries, taking care of the kids, to cook or help a bit in the household and depending on the weather, it can happen, that the hay harvest is due too.
But there are also raspberries to pick in autumn in the months of September and October. Then its not so busy but its also nice, if someone comes to visit and helps us.
German, English (Reinhard and Christa), Italian (everyone, but not perfectly)
We have two possibilities:
One possibility is to stay with us in the village center. There you have one room by your own. The bathroom needs to be shared. But there are two bathrooms. Especially if you like to take care of children its probably better to stay in our house. Here we don't have pets.
The second possibility is to stay at the farm. There is also a room for guests. In both houses you live with the family and you are part of it. We are no vegetarians, but we don't eat much meat. In general our meals are a mixture of Austrian, Tyrolean and Italian kitchen and we like get to know new recipes.
In spare time there are many activities to do in nature: per example hiking, biking, collecting mushrooms, climbing ... also Bruneck, a nice old town, is close to our house and we are pleased to give you a ride there.
In Pfalzen there is also a bus, which goes half-hourly to Bruneck.
Especially in summer I spend with the kids a lot of time at the close playgrounds. But we like also to do excursions.
