Peter and Lisi Robatscher and daughters
Combining tradition with modern comforts, being genuine and yet serving the modern trends and expectations of our guests. That's the special flair at the Thalerhof! As passionate climbers, mountaineers, adventurers and nature lovers, we know many summit tours and hiking trails and appreciate the miracles of the countryside. Only those who live what they offer their guests, can be good holiday and leisure consultants.
We draw the power from the mountains and we want to convey this feeling of life in the Dolomites to our guests.
Live, be free, adventure. "Feel free in the Dolomites".
We are very proud that our parents were awarded the South Tyrolean Mountain Farmers Award for special merit a few years ago. The award is a symbolic sign of public gratitude for the commitment to the farm-life, the care of the South Tyrolean landscape and the estimable dedication to the voluntary work in associations. It’s a sign that recognizes our attitude to the preservation of traditions and our sense for continuous development and sustainability.

Forest hiking & jogging
Sporty, romantic, nice
Holidays should be fun. If, instead of being a late riser, you prefer to go jogging in the early morning, you best can do it in the forest in front of our house, according to the motto "be free and enjoy nature". By the way, the running track of the Siusi Alp runs directly above our house.
Kneippism by the brook
Strengthen the circulation
Kneippism is hydrotherapy according to Sebastian Kneipp, a Bavarian priest born 1821 and one of the pioneers of the naturopathic medicine movement. It stimulates arterial circulation and perfusion. At the Thalerhof you can experience this treatment in the countryside in the nearby brook.
The barefoot path
Free your feet
Our barefoot path offers you special sensory impressions. A relaxing experience of a special kind. Walking on different materials is a pleasant foot massage.
Walking on the dew
Strengthening effect for young and old
The Kneipp therapy attributes the walk on the dew-soaked lawn a particularly healing effect against circulatory disorders in the initial stage, varicose veins and morning tiredness.
Start with warm feet running or walking for about 3-5 minutes in the dewy grass. Then put on warm socks and walk a while to warm your feet again. Walking on the dew in the morning is good for spirit and soul!
A unique location
Wonderful, relaxing, quiet
The Thalerhof is located at 1,130 m a.s.l. above the village of Tires at the Catinaccio. You can easily reach us by car via St. Zyprian. Our location is unique: not far from the village (10 minutes walk), with a view at the sunny valley of Tires and the mountain Monte Cavone or Tschafon, we offer you a quiet and relaxing holiday.
If you feel like having some time, you can assure yourself of the steepness of our meadows while making hay. Try it, but do not forget the good footwear. We are grateful for any help.
On our farm, we grow cows, calves, cats, rabbits and chickens. Please understand that for safety reasons, the access to agricultural buildings is allowed only in our presence.
Maybe the property owner will do a tour of the farm when he's not busy working on the farm. Just ask him!
The name "Thalerhof" has its origin from the near small valley (“Tal” in German).
We own the farm since over 230 years. At that time, in the far 1786, Josef Robatscher had acquired the small farm Thalerhof from Josef Knollseisen.
Originally, the family lived in the small mill below the old farmhouse. The mill is still fully functional. Until the late sixties, the grain grown directly on the farm, was ground there regularly.
Incidentally, the 230 years are only a small part of our history. The hill called “Thalerbühl” was already inhabited in the Iron Age (circa 950 to 15 BC) by the Rhaetians. Finds prove this colonization history. Working on this steep hill with the scythe and then with the rake to make hay, you surely would curse it, because the work there has little to do with the love of nature. On the other hand, you feel the spirituality that radiates from this place, and remember that people have been comfortable at the Thalerhof for more than 3,000 years now.
Let this story affect you, or even better, become a part of it, we look forward to it.
