The ecologie concept


Renewable engergy

for power and heating

from sun and wood



Power autarky

in real time

throughout the year


Self consumption

of solar power produced

in 2022

Power concept

  • 17,11 kWp photovoltaic panels made in Germany
  • 28,4 kWh storage system, LiFePO4 ForteLion technology with unique thermal stability and thus maxiumum safety
  • Split log firewood boiler, firewood from own local resoursces, no purchase necessary
  • 5000l heat accumulator for storage of thermal energy and preparation of hygienic hot water
  • Floor heating throughout the building
  • Central ventilation system
  • Goals: Active energy balance, producing more engery than needed, >90% real time autarky

Principles considering construction

  • Use of an already existant building, thus keeping newly sealed soil minimal
  • Insulation of the outer shell with ecological materials – ground floor: bricks / Minopor, 1st floor: aerated concrete 40cm, 2nd floor: wooden frame structure / wood fibre / rock wool
  • Lime sand bricks for inner walls as thermal buffer and sound insulation
  • No use of OSB-, MDF- or other types of chipboards in the entire building
  • Vapour permeable wall construction, mineral plasters and paints only
  • Furniture wood mainly from recycling the contruction elements of the old barn, generation old own reserves, or own harvest
  • Reuse / recycle – explixitly not using new products for certain purposes
  • Short access routes as key criterium for choice of partners


  • Supersoft bedlinen without need of neither active drying nor ironing
  • Cleaning and towel change during stay only on request
  • Ecological cosmetic products without plastic wrap
  • Hygienic tissues made from 100% recycling fibres
  • Minimum use of chemical detergents, preferring vapour cleaning
  • Running drier and washing machines when enough power surplus is available whenever possible

Food and delight

  • Preferring local products / Austrian organic products / products with certificates for sustainablility
  • Coffee machines with biodegradable pads only
  • No single-use plastic wraps for our breakfast boxes
  • Also other singl-use wrapping is reduced to a minimum

Mobiltiy and further measures

  • Free arrival/departure shuttle for guests traveling with public transport
  • Free mountainbike rent
  • Combined shuttle and shopping rides
  • Charging point for electric vehicles, slow charging with pv surplus energy is free


  • Refrigerators and dishwashers of A+++ energy efficiency category only (B/C according to new certification system)
  • In the appartements the refrigerators have no freezer compartement, there's a central common freezer that can be used
  • Reduce of standby consumption for unused appartements
  • TV only on request
  • Efficient Showerheads that reduce hot water consumption for showers to 50% with similiar comfort
  • Hightec and lowtec are combined, high intergration on the energy management side is combined with reduced entertainment technology / 'gadget' smart1 home functions
  • Interaction of our guest with our concept is wanted and promoted – an infopanel in each appartement shows the power supply status

and many more details you we hope you discover during your stay!

It's not only energy that counts:

Happy is not he who has much, but he who needs little
