Familiar – Exciting – Simply wonderful
Our guesthouse Graf-Messnerhof is located in the sunny and quiet village of Elvas, 824m above sea level. Elvas is nestled on the southern slopes of the Natz-plateau, only 3 kilometres to the north-east of Brixen/Bressanone. Situated in the heart of South Tyrol, at the intersection point of three valleys, our farm is a great starting point to visit the most beautiful spots in the South Tyrol.
The “Widemhof-Messnerhof“ farm used to make part of the possessions of the Novacella monastery until the 19th century. Then, farmers still had to turn in part of their crop as leasehold rent. In the year 1848, following a new Austrian law, all leaseholders were given ownership after paying a transfer fee to their lord of the manor. The Messnerhof farm has been in the hands of the Graf family since 1926. Although apples and grapes are our mainstay, we also farm apricots and peaches – as well as a variety of vegetables. In 2022, our long-standing Graf-Messnerhof B&B was expanded to include five brand-new holiday flats.
All members of our family play a role in running the Graf-Messnerhof, which is something we do with pride and enthusiasm. Whether it’s preparing your farm-fresh breakfasts, working in the orchards or in our vineyards ... we are a family concern in which everyone takes part. Each of us takes care to ensure that our idyllic holiday retreat offers our guests a real home away from home!
See you soon at Graf-Messnerhof!
