Farm Holidays in Laas

Two things are omnipresent on a Farm Holiday in Laas: marble and 'Marille' apricots.

The municipality of Laas lies in the upper Vinschgau valley and, along with the main village, comprises the villages of Allitz, Eyrs, Tschengls and Tanas as well as Tarnell and Parnetz. The countryside is dominated by alluvial cones, which over the course of centuries came into being thanks to flooding and landslides.

The municipality of Laas lies in the upper Vinschgau valley and, along with the main village, comprises the villages of Allitz, Eyrs, Tschengls and Tanas as well as Tarnell and Parnetz. The countryside is dominated by alluvial cones, which over the course of centuries came into being thanks to flooding and landslides. 

 

Nowadays, apple orchards shape the landscape in this municipality of Vinschgau valley, yet agriculture in Laas is not what you'd call monotonous. The dry climate enables vegetables to thrive, too. Laas is the largest cauliflower-growing area in South Tyrol. Through its slow ripening, this vegetable can develop lots of taste and unfolds its full flavour when cooked.

 

Between a rock and a soft place-apricots 
Laas is mainly famous for its marble and the 'Marille', or apricot. Marble, or 'white gold', from Laas is famous well beyond the country's borders for its unique purity and hardness. Marble from Laas was even used for building Ground Zero underground station in New York. You'll notice on arrival in Laas that this noble white stone is omnipresent.
You'd be well advised not to miss out on the sweet 'Marille' apricot on your Farm Holiday in Laas. It's best to buy the yellowy-orange fruit on site and consume it immediately – it won't taste better anywhere else.


The culture and street festival
Marble and apricots can also be discovered together in Laas: on the first weekend in August every year, the lively 'Marmor und Marille' street festival takes place. Visitors learn about the wide range of marble and apricot products as part of a varied entertainment and culture programme. Artists display their works and you can watch sculptors while fashioning new sculptures from Laas marble. There's no shortage of culinary treats to taste alongside marble guided tours and cultural trails.


Tracing bygone rural life 
You can embark on a tour of discovery on a Farm Holiday in Laas and find traces of farm life of bygone days. Still today, parts of the wooden aquaduct known as 'Kandlwaal', which used to provide irrigation for the fields, may be seen. The 600-metre-long wooden channel crosses the Etsch river on 32- to 15-metre-high stone columns. In 1907, the 'Kandlwaal' was destroyed in a fire, but most columns may still be seen today.

Cyclists looking for a leisurely ride, on the other hand, will appreciate the advantages offered by the Vinschgerbahn train and the bike shuttle, which will conveniently take them to the starting point of gentle tours. The same goes for hiking in Laas: whether mountain tour or short walk along a 'Waalweg', you'll find routes catering for every taste here.
