The mostly appreciated period at the family hotel

For a summer holiday that accommodates to all members of the family, a stay at the South Tyrol's Sonnwies Family Hotel is just what you need. Mountains, climbing adventure, hiking experiences, a natural bathing lake, tennis courts... in addition to a comprehensive range of services available at the Family Hotel. It is situated close to Brixen (a bishop's seat with a variety of attractions) and has a central location in the heart of South Tyrol, that makes Luson the ideal starting point for excursions to the Garda Lake or to the most famous of South Tyrolean museums. A summer holiday at the Sonnwies Family Hotel certainly ticks all the vacation boxes.
