Time out – regeneration – Nature

A holiday at the Obergluniger is a holiday in a panoramic location, in aesthetic residential units, a holiday with all the quality expected from an organic farm, close to Nature, close to your inner being.

Beautiful holiday apartments on the organic farm

On the sunny side of the mountain the Obergluniger Farm nestles among the extensive orchards and vineyards of the Lebenberg mountain above the small village of Cermes not far from Merano. The views from here go on forever across to the imposing mountains of the Gruppo Tessa mountain group, over the spa town of Merano and across the Val d’Adige to Bolzano and the Dolomites.

And people's hearts are expansive too.

The Platter family have created an idyll on the Obergluniger Farm in South Tyrol, the like of which it would be difficult to find, with holiday apartments and rooms, which in every respect meet the highest expectations of a designer hotel, where the service is restrained and unobtrusive. You are bound to fall in love with this idyll.

Historical walls meet modern architecture

Surrounded by attractive castles and historical manor houses dating from earlier centuries the organic farm also boasts more than 450 years of history. The lovingly maintained rustic walls of the Haus am Hof house five holiday apartments and are redolent of past ages.

The adjacent Haus am Lebenberg with holiday apartments and double rooms was constructed in 2018 in a modern architectural style. Both buildings offer the highest degree of aesthetics and quality and the warm atmosphere created by natural materials.

South Tyrolean hosts with passion

What your heart desires - and then a little more. Any guest of the Platter family at the Oberglunigerhof in Cermes realises that hospitality here goes a long way beyond the conventional.

With her thoughtful urge for perfection the enthusiastic hostess, Marlene, wants nothing less than that everyone around here should be contented. This starts with the wonderful organic breakfast with home-made delicacies and quality products from the local area offered every day. It shows in her informative chat about excursion destinations, restaurants and cultural attractions in the area.

It shows in her respectful manner with her guests, which is always restrained and unobtrusive. Marlene's husband Heinrich is passionate about organic farming. In all seasons you can find him in his apple orchards and vineyards on the farm. If he stops work for a moment, it may simply be to enthuse about new and old varieties of fruit, methods of cultivation, wine and much more.

First impression counts

On the farm

Holiday on the organic farm in South Tyrol. With the Roter Hahn quality symbol with its four proud flowers Heinrich and Marlene Platter live out their promise to Nature and to people with all their heart and soul. On their farm the passionate hosts cultivate apples and wine grapes for the most part.

If you take a look around the farm you will find hidden corners, where you can enjoy blessed peace and quiet and in the vegetable garden you will find an amazing range of fruits and vegetable varieties which thrive in sun-drenched Cermes in an almost exotic location. The southerners, persimmon and figs, ripen well here, side by side with juicy local fruit and vegetable varieties, which find their way, crisp and fresh, on to your breakfast table.

And after a relaxed start to the day you can take your book to the private terrace for a leisurely read or go to the pool with a wonderful view over the whole area around Merano and the Val d'Adige right to Bolzano and the Dolomites beyond.


Rustic walls provide the last word in comfort.

Life is better when it's organic. When the walls "breathe", because the natural materials create an optimal room climate, when revitalised water flows through the pipes and when the most select fabrics, mattresses and coverings also ensure the best in sleeping comfort, you simply feel at home.

Marlene Platter's perfectionist touch, which sees to and monitors every tiny detail in the holiday apartments and rooms, delights the holiday guest's soul. Live comfortably, live better and simply be happy, for everything around you is just right.

You can also purchase wonderful products, such as delicious jams, apple juice, wines and seasonal products, to take home with you to make the holiday mood last a little longer.

The quiet, dreamy inner courtyard and the special flair of the breakfast room with its old vaulting is something many of you would love to take home.
