Our Meringerhof farm at Lagundo

Home cooking is the best

„I’m going to be a farmer when I grow up”, said Markus as a child.
He was completely fascinated by farming, and everything that went with it. He kept his dream alive over the years, and never became discouraged - quite the contrary! The Meringerhof farm at Lagundo/Rablà was purchased in 2001, and Markus built it up all by himself, transforming it into a splendid apple-growing concern. But that’s not the end of the story …

When love bears fruit …

Markus met Sieglinde and fell madly in love with her. And Sieglinde also fell in love with Markus and the farming life. They made the joint decision to diversify at the Meringerhof and make it a truly special place. They planted more fruit varieties, brought in some animals, and then their son Lukas was born.

A lot has happened in the meantime. Pigs, calves, chickens, ducks, rabbits, cats and Gina the dog have all come to live at the Meringerhof. The farm has its own butcher’s shop with a butcher: the speck, smoked salami and country-style salami are all home-made.

But there’s more. A whole variety of other things are produced at the Meringerhof:

  • Eggs
  • Alpine cheese
  • Jams (strawberry, apricot, blueberry, raspberry)
  • Syrups (raspberry, blackcurrant, elderberry)
  • Juices (apple juice, pear juice)
  • Vinegar (apple cider vinegar, balsamic apple cider vinegar)
  • Honey (apple honey, mountain honey)
  • Wine (Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet)
  • Grappa
  • Apple chips
  • Olive oil
Vegetables

Like father, like son

Lukas also intends to follow in his father’s footsteps by becoming a farmer, and is already providing valuable help. Every two weeks, the farm organises a guided tour with tastings (free for guests at the Lisetta). Markus and Lukas show guests around the farm, the orchard and the small collection of livestock. After their visit, guests can indulge in some of Sieglinde’s delicious treats.

Perfect for us!

A very nice hotel, we felt thoroughly pampered. We went there with the whole family, and we had a great time with the children too. This is our third visit - and it certainly won’t be the last.

Luxury in harmony with nature

The Lisetta exceeds all expectations. The professional welcome and attractive hotel décor are matched by the great friendliness, which we encountered everywhere. It’s exactly what we hoped for! There was also the “green” aspect, with honey produced on-site by their own bees, eggs from free-range hens and herbs from their own vegetable plot! It’s right in line with current trends, a successful compromise between luxury and sustainability. So, an ideal holiday for body and spirit, which also helps appease one’s conscience! :)
