About us

I, Martin Pillon, come from a farming family, am an enthusiastic fruit and wine producer and have been letting holiday apartments since 2004. My parents, Hildegard and Wilhelm are still actively engaged in the business.

I, Kathrin Pillon, have been living on the farm since 2008. I designed the farm portfolio and together with Martin, look after the guests and from time to time produce many traditional sweet delicacies on the farm.

Together with our son Elias we take renewed pleasure each day in our little paradise and enjoy the life on our Bruggnhof. In the midst of greenery and yet very accessibly located, we live a happy life, balanced between relaxing peace and quiet, opportunities for active leisure activities and daily work.
So that you know that you are in good hands, when you stay with us, we are delighted to give you a glimpse into life on the farm, to tell you about natural surroundings and our culture and to give you personal tips to plan the best days of the year.
We are proud of our farm portfolio, which puts all the information our guests need about our Bruggnhof, our village of Kaltern, the Eschtal valley and the whole of South Tyrol at their fingertips at any time.

Weekly tour guide around our farm

We explain and show you how we work and how proceed our work activity in the course of the year. A visit to the orchards and wine-growing estates as well as a short detour to the rustic wine house cellar should not be missed.

Weekly guided tour of the orchards

A special holiday experience at the Bruggnhof is the weekly guided tour of the orchards in the months of April to October (Friday afternoon 4 pm), in association with Kaltern Tourist Association (6,00 € p.p). On a walk through fruit orchards and vineyards you will learn interesting details on the topic of 'Integrated Apple-growing in South Tyrol'. The tour is rounded off with a tasting of different types of apples.

I should be delighted to spend a Friday afternoon with you and to tell you all about this interesting topic!

Farm Shop and hour of bake – special offers at the farm

Our farm shop is something special for our guest and a challenging task form e: depending on the seasonal products, I look forward to preparing fruit spreads, fruit juices, chutneys, dried fruit, pickled vegetables and other culinary delights for our guests.

A great passion of mine is baking. Cakes, strudels and other tasty desserts regularly leave my kitchen to sweeten the day of our Bruggnhof guests.  A special part has graced our garden since 2024: a pizza oven. And when very special scents hit our noses, one thing is certain: Kathrin has baked bread for the guests, or it's pizza evening at the Bruggnhof! Our guests are welcome to help!
