Family is the home ot the heart

Your hosts Martin, Sabine, Maria, Teresa and Clara Gschliesser, and also Cecilia Irschara

Martin Gschliesser


I'm Martin, the boss of the house, so to speak. But I'm also responsible for everything and everyone. As a career changer, I learned a lot and whether it was reception, service, caretaker or dad; We always have something going on…

Sabine Irschara


I am Sabine. As a full-time mother of our three girls Maria, Teresa and Clara, the balancing act between family and business is a nice challenge.

Cecilia Irschara

senior owner

I'm Zilli, or Cecilia. They call me the good soul of the house. I am Sabine's mother and am happy about my three granddaughters. I take care of the flowers in the house, the garden and help where I am needed. I am also happy to make cakes and sweet pastries for our guests.



I am Maria, the eldest of the Falken girls. I'm 14 years old and go to the language high school in Brunico. I like reading, skiing and hanging out with friends. I can take care of my little sisters quite well and sometimes help my mum a bit. When I grow up, I don't know exactly what I want to be yet.



I'm Teresa, I'm 10 years old now and I'm in fifth grade at primary school in Pfalzen. I don't always like it there. I don't really like school! I'm a rascal, says Mommy, because I often take things out and then just leave them, but that's the way it is. Oh yes, and I'm a great swimmer and I take care of our cat Mimi.



I'm Clara, the smallest. It's my birthday in the summer and I'm already 7. I'm already aware of a lot of what's going on in the house. I don't like it when my sisters argue and are loud. I often tease my sisters, but I also want to be big.

Dinner was exceptional every day

We had one week there and every single dinner was delicious! Some of the days the dinner is themed. Nice pool, good distance to the sky slopes. Free parking, easy walking distance to the village centre.


Very clean and comfortable

Very clean and comfortable - with great food - The dinners were varied and we particularly enjoyed the home made soups! Delicious! Surprisingly good facilities such as the spa with sauna and pool.


We were warmly greeted by the owner

We were warmly greeted by the owner who escorted us to our room. The room was large with a balcony and a mountain view, it had a flat screen TV, in room safe for passports etc. and plenty of stroage space for clothes, it also had a sofa sleeper if needed. The bathroom was large and the thing I liked best was the heated floor in the morning when you step out of the shower. The food was good, breakfast was the usual European style with cold meat and cheeses, cereal, & yogurt.
