The Residence zum Steinbock is located in the center of Villandro, in the Isarco Valley, near Chiusa in a quiet position, gently situated on the eastern side of the Sarentino Alps.
Ansitz zum Steinbock History
Villandro extends from the Isarco riverbed to the heights of the spacious Alpe di Villandro, one of the largest and most beautiful Alpine pastures in the Alps. Rich in history and traces left by the inhabitants of the past, the excavations conducted in the center have brought to light findings from the Neolithic, Bronze Age and Iron Age, from the Roman and medieval periods. These details, combined with the memories of the old Fundres silver mine, exploited in the late Middle Ages, testify to the importance of this location and therefore the Hotel Steinbock Castle in Villandro will fascinate you with its evocative atmosphere of the past.
Whether for summer or winter holidays, La Residenza zum Steinbock will immerse guests in a relaxing atmosphere, with all the air-conditioned guest rooms equipped with wooden furnishings, flat-screen satellite TV, and mountain or village views. The private bathroom comes with a hairdryer, bathrobes, slippers and free toiletries. In the morning, a sweet and savory buffet breakfast is served, including eggs, cold cuts and croissants and homemade bread.
The gastronomic offer of the Steinbock Gourmet Restaurant in Villandro, Val d'Isarco, will accompany you through 250 years of South Tyrolean culinary tradition: chef Hannes Pignater and his collaborators will prepare for you exquisite appetizers and enticing creations of their cuisine, rewarded by the 'Espresso and Gault Millau and particularly appreciated by connoisseurs of all nationalities, such as roasted pigeon breast with crispy legs and mustard plums, accompanied by a fine Blauburgunder from South Tyrol and served in a romantic setting with a romantic aura, will transport guests in another era, when in the vineyards of Villandro and Val d'Isarco many splendid parades of ladies and knights in medieval clothes were spent.
On warm evenings in the early summer there is nothing more pleasant than a romantic gourmet dinner in pairs or a nice toast with friends or family, for weddings, baptisms or other celebrations. At the Zum Steinbock Residence every party becomes a special event.
