At the bottom of the Monte Luco (Laugenspitze) lies our same-named B&B with Café, Pastry Shop & Pizzeria. Here, on the high plateau of Alta Val di Non (Deutschnonsberg), amid thick woods and lush green meadows, we are exactly at the “hidden” frontier between the German-speaking South Tyrol and the Italian-speaking Trentino.
We’ve been running our small B&B for three generations now.
Whether passionate motorcyclists, eager hikers or enthusiastic bikers - our B&B is the ideal starting point for many outdoor activities & the perfect place to rest and relax for everyone who’s travelling through! Who wants to unwind can also enjoy some peace and tranquility on our large sun terrace.
Are you ready for your next holiday? We are happy to welcome you!

Tasty. Fresh. Regional.
Have a powerful start to the day! – According to this motto, every morning we welcome you with a delicious breakfast. Whether hearty, sweet or both – what matters is that your palate is happy and your body full of energy!
After exciting adventures in the midst of nature, our pastry chef Marlene will pamper your palate with her yummy cakes, pies & apple strudel in the afternoon… a paradise for sweet tooth lovers!
Fancy some sweet refreshment? Then you have to try our homemade ice cream & our mouth-watering ice-cream sundaes!
At lunchtime and in the evening we’ll spoil you with our crispy, freshly baked Pizza from the wood oven. And to drink we recommend a fresh craft beer from Trentino.
We highly value fresh, regional products. That's why we get most of our ingredients from the farmers "next door".
