From a farm to a 4-star family paradise:
The history of the Hotel Sonnwies
The Familyhotel Sonnwies still shows the roots it has grown from. On the one hand, the traditional South Tyrolean farm Sorgenhof still holds a very important place. On the other, our offer includes all that mountain freedom we love so much ourselves. And last but not least, the Hotel Sonnwies is the realization of all the dreams a small farmer's family in the little village of Luson/Lüson can only dream of.
1983: an old part of Luson/Lüsen is auctioned of
The old and very pious farmer's wife from the old farm Sorgenhof had bequeathed the farm to the church. As the latter auctioned it off in 1983, the Hinterggers bought it and so son Hans, the present farmer, inherited it.
1986-2002: Years of development characterized by industriousness
After three years Hans already began to build the new farm. In 1990 he reconstructed the barn. In 1991 he married Angelika, the present boss of the house with whom he has four children. At that time they made their living from farming and renting flats for vacation. In 1998 the young couple made their dream come true: they built a 3-star guest house with 25 rooms. Angelika cooked, Hans waited on the guests.
2002-2010: Specialization on families
In 2002 the family guesthouse joined the organization of the family hotels and so the first step for the tailoring of the offer was made. The rooms were combined to 17 units, 6 employees were taken on. In 2006 the big risk was taken: the house was rebuilt, the rooms, the dining hall and the play rooms were increased in size and 35 suites were added. Indoor swimming pool and sauna followed. The leap in quality to a 4-star family hotel had been successful. In 2010 the new wellness area Salientes Runcada was opened.
Today: The Hintereggers have not stopped dreaming...
Today 25 employees are working in the feel-good hotel and the Hintereggers are still strictly following their quality-based strategy. As as example, there is a zone in the wellness area that is exclusively reserved for parents; in 2011 all rooms were newly furnished and equipped; in spring 2012 the entrance hall and the bar were rebuilt resulting in a cozy lounge. Playground and petting zoo also kept growing, the animals have a wonderful pen and the riding arena is huge.
