We'd like you to paint you an evocative picture. Just imagine:
A huge expanse of pink and white blossom in springtime. Intense green in summer. Multi-coloured leaves, rosy apples, and brilliant yellow vineyards in autumn. A magical white landscape in winter.
Although we're at 890 metres, thanks to our very sunny position we can grow a huge range of exotic plants and fruit trees, including cherries, plums, apricots, pears and, of course, apples. And let's not forget the vineyards! And as a final touch: among the apple orchards on the Naz-Sciaves plateau you'll also find oleanders and lavender, adding a Mediterranean flavour to the landscape and blending in with the unique alpine flora.
An apple a day keeps the doctor away!
Try counting all the apple trees around Naz-Sciaves. You'd be wasting your time, it would be a never-ending task. So we'll give you the answer: there are more than 900,000 trees - an infinite apple heaven! It's not surprising: our apples are in great demand, far beyond the borders of our region. Have you ever tried the Naz "Golden Delicious"?
A real gem! Lovely hotel very close to Bressanone, excellent starting point for lots of trips into the surrounding mountains ... family run, very kind staff, excellent cooking, very clean ... far superior quality to its star rating, an ideal choice if you want to get away from it all for a few days ...
