All the rooms have an en suite bathroom/shower/WC, a telephone, a kitchenette, a refridgerator.



The Zirbenhof offers the homely atmosphere of a typical Defereggen farmhouse.
The cozy wooden structure is ideal for groups up to 27 people. Self caterers, but also families feel comfortable in the rustic apartments.
