Hotel GsoihofThe farm hotel in Villnöss / Dolomites – South Tyrol
Spend your holidays in South Tyrol in a rustic farm hotel on the sun-drenched southern slope of the Villnöss valley. Our Hotel Gsoihof is located outside the village of St. Peter / Villnöss in a very quiet, traffic-free landscape with a fantastic view of the Geisler peaks and into the valley. Already at first glance you will notice the striking historical references that characterize our hotel in Villnöss. It has evolved from a 13th-century mansion, whose typical architecture today is just as unmistakable as the traditional furnishing of the rooms with their traditional wood paneling. There are even a few rooms which, despite modern reconstructions, are directly attributable to the medieval building. Your accommodation in Villnöss not only gives you direct access to the Dolomites, which you can see almost at your doorstep – it also brings you into contact with our beautiful country, its traditions and its past.

A house with a long history
and artistic furniture
The history of our house is by the way no less interesting than our beautiful location and our service. Our farm hotel was formerly one of the largest farms in the Villnöss valley. And with the founding year 1268 also one of the oldest.1929, as more and more holidaymakers arrived in our region, this was turned into a pension. Here, too, we were a pioneer in the tourism of Villnöss, when tourism was formerly called “Fremdenverkehr” in German. In addition to many other dear guests, the artist Hans Luthmann (1888 to 1945) sticks in our memory. The famous landscape painter in the 1940s was guest of the Hotel Gsoihof for months and painted during this time some pictures, which today hang throughout the hotel and also in the rooms. This artistic touch gives our house a unique atmosphere.
