Farm holidays in winter
The fire is blazing in the grate, on the bench around the stove in the rustic living room it is pleasantly warm and the snack with hot tea, baked apples and rural specialties is very good…
Farm holidays in winter – why not? Also during the cold season a farm holiday at one of the 1,470 farms of "Red Rooster" is a recommendable alternative to a stay in a hotel. For this you can find many good reasons.
For instance, scarcely something is more romantic and sleepy than a snow-covered old farmhouse: The chimney smokes, in the wood-paneled snuggery with the big stove it is very warm, in front of the window you can see the snowflakes whirling around and the country folk have much time, in order to sit together with their guests and to tell exciting stories.
Family holidays in the snow
Especially for those who would like to spend a carefree winter holiday in the bosom of the family a farm is always a good choice, because the snow-covered nature all around is a perfect playground for the kids. They like to have snowball fights, to build snowmen, to pick up trails in the snow and to make a ride with a horse-drawn sleigh or to do handicrafts and bake Christmas biscuits.
Moreover, hardly elsewhere the advent and Christmas are celebrated in such a quiet and leisurely way, accompanied by many old traditions and sweet delicacies prepared with loving care by the farmer’s wife. Also for the New Year’s Eve a farm offers an original atmosphere, far away from the hustle and bustle.
If you spend your holiday in South Tyrol, because you love skiing, you will profit from the proximity of many big and small skiing areas of the region. Often you can leave the warm snuggery and start immediately into the skiing fun. In between there are frequently only a few minutes of walk or a short journey with the free ski bus.
Of course there are offered also other sporting possibilities, for example ski tours, toboggan runs for the whole family, tours with horse-drawn sleighs, ice-skating rinks or paths for winter hikes. And after some funny hours in the open countryside you’ll go back to the pleasantly warm living room. Winter and farm holidays: We like this combination!
