Farm Holidays Experience country life - experience carefree life
Live the country life in Burgenland with 155 farming families, who look forward to being your host. Experience carefree and simple holidays. The loveliest holiday farms offer the whole family a very special holiday, from lake Neusiedl to the most southerly corner of Burgenland.
A welcome drink helps you forget the stresses of the journey and take the first step on the way to unwinding. The children make short work of the savoury nibbles, mum and dad prefer the spicy, bacon-flavoured pastries. You will learn what is actually in them when the farmer’s wife presses the recipe into your hand so you can make them at home. The farmer’s children will immediately take the new little guests away to the barn to see the animals, or to look round the farm yard, as though they had known each other for ages. All the discussions during the long car journey about what to do in the evening are forgotten. Before you know it you are standing in a wine grower’s cellar and experiencing your first taste of Burgenland wine.
Quality tested by Nature Regular quality checks and constant expansion of the list of farm holiday providers ensures that this is what guests really experience. The loveliest farms are very carefully selected. You are going back to nature, and you take your time during farm holidays.
The 2-, 3- or 4-flower rating makes it easy for guests to select the level of accommodation that bests meets their requirements in terms of comfort, etc. Confidence in the host farms is not merely a promise made by the brand; hospitality is key to successful farm holidays and is in Burgenlanders’ blood.
Expect lots of adventures
Back to our holiday families. After a drink in the wine cellar it’s hard to carry the suitcases up to your room, and even harder to persuade the children to sleep in their room and not in with the farmer’s children. The question of what the weather will be like tomorrow has not arisen on the first evening, because there is so much to do it doesn’t matter about the weather. Bake a strudel with the farmer’s wife, bake bread, harvest fruit and vegetables or hunt for eggs in the poultry shed. Everyone can do as they like. Many a friendship has been established this way, families keep in touch during the year, the children look forward to seeing each other, the new vintage is in the cellar, ready for tasting - can’t wait until next year’s farm holiday.
