Your friendly hosts – the Santer family – welcome you to the medieval estate Ansitz Helmsdorf, and invite you and your family to enjoy memorable holidays high above the cultural city of Merano. Formerly built as a medieval residential castle, the estate close to Lana not only offers you a fantastic view over the Adige Valley, but also a very special living ambiance. Where once chivalrous knights and noble ladies lived, today in the two holiday apartments you can enjoy meter-thick castle walls, creaky wood floors and ornate furniture made of solid wood, and yet benefit from modern comforts. It is the perfect blend of tradition and modernity that gives the estate its special fascination and provides unique scenery for your farm holidays in Lana.
