What's behind heavenly holiday

Do you know the feeling when holiday means relaxed existence? When holiday stands for lightness of being? With us you will experience heavenly holiday: in silence, when silence is needed. In work-outs when the body longs for it. When everyday's life's pulse rate becomes silent, individual hours and days take over. 

heavenly holiday, that is modern apartments characterised by natural materials in historic buildings that have advisedly been renovated and adapted to all holiday wishes. 

Living at the vicarage 

The building is still used as a vicarage. Despite being centrally located, the buildings are peaceful accommodations and places of retreat and reflection. Each ground-floor is still characterised by clerical activities of your hosts, the upper floors are available to guests. 

The buildings are all located in selected rural regions and come with only a couple of apartments. Here you can spend individual hours in a special atmosphere and not feel like one of many guests in a huge hotel. 

The lightness of being 

Without realising it, the individual composes his life according to the laws of beauty even in times of greatest distress. It is wrong, then, to chide the novel for being fascinated by mysterious coincidences […] But it is right to chide man for being blind to such coincidences in his daily life. For he thereby deprives his life of a dimension of beauty.

(Milan Kundera: The Unbearable Lightness of Being) 

Not only bearable, but extremely pleasant is the time of silence with heavenly holiday: compose your holiday according to the laws of beauty and give every day a new face: from an absolute retreat to the discovery of clerical power places and spirituality. Here you will find time for things that go short in your day-to-day life. 

Regionality & sustainability 

Regionality plays an important role. Already during the renovation work it was crucial that the regional economy benefits from heavenly holiday. The apartments' furnishing relates to regional traditions, handicrafts and materials. With cooperations with local food service companies the creation of value is even more enhanced.

Sustainability is also a topic that we engage in. In addition to our sensible re-use of the mostly hardly used vicarages, we also emphasize on eco-friendly measures when it comes to adapting the buildings.

When selecting our partners we also look into their sustainability strategies. Our first apartments at the Pichl vicarage were furnished by Team7, which has been awarded with numerous sustainability certificates. 

Your time out from your everyday life 

Our guests recharge their batteries during guided hikes, on local discovery tours with the bicycle or during a silent hour at the vicarage, which is temporarily yours.
