Alan Rogers Review

This is a delightful site with lovely views, in the beautiful Ötz valley, on the edge of the village of Umhausen. Situated on a gentle slope in an open valley, with a river running along one side, it has an air of peace and tranquillity and makes an excellent base for mountain walking in spring, summer and autumn, skiing in winter or a relaxing holiday. The 98 pitches, some on individual terraces, are all marked and numbered and have 12A electrical connections; charges relate to the area available, long leads may be necessary. The reception building houses an attractive bar/restaurant, a TV room, a new, fully equipped sauna, solarium and gym and a ski drying room.

The enthusiastic family owners speak good English and are very helpful and welcoming. Just above the site is an archaeological open-air park depicting the life and times of Ötzi the Ice Man whose 5,000-year-old remains were found in the mountains beyond the park. The walk up to the Stuibenfall (Tirol’s biggest waterfall) is highly recommended – allow at least one hour.


With underfloor heating, open washbasins and showers on payment, the toilet facilities are of the highest quality. A small toilet/wash block at the far end of the site is used in summer. Baby room. Washing machine and dryer, drying room. Motorhome services. Fridge hire. Bar/restaurant (May-Oct, Dec-March). No shop, but bread can be ordered at reception. Sauna. Solarium. TV room. Ski room.
