CHALET ZOILA: ADMIRE THE HORIZON, LOOK UP, GAZE INTO THE DEEP
A house with a long and exciting history, which we brought with care and great respect into the 21st century. You can notice that farmers, artisans and a couple of artists have lived here and all have left their mark. The facade of the house faces towards the sun: with a terrace, a balcony and many windows to the south that look into the depths of the valleys and the mountains. 170 square meters can accommodate eight to 12 people, with five bedrooms, three bathrooms, kitchen, large living room, plus a “Stube” (lounge) with table and bench for lying down in front of the wood-burning stove. The garden is a gentle slope and just behind the three larch trees, is our Chalet Leckplått.

The original and well-preserved “Stube”, the typical Tyrolean living room (with its old pendulum wallclock), is the heart of the house. We don’t only meet at mealtimes, but at any time of the day around the big table or better, for those who can’t find space on the bench in front of the stove. Eating with a breathtaking view, admiring the horizon designed by the mountains.
The kitchen is spacious with plenty of space for cooks, both large and small, with cutting-edge cooking equipment and a wood-burning stove with a historic forged iron flap. Next to the “stube” is the living room, with access to the balcony, another favourite environment: a custom-made sofa with plenty of space for lounging during the holiday.
Four bedrooms are located on the first floor and one on the ground floor. Two rooms are equipped with new Box-spring beds, in the other rooms the bed frames have been restored and combined with new shelves and wardrobes in fine wood. Curtain rods have been designed together with an interior designer, along with carefully selected fabrics.
Three bathrooms: one with a shower and sink, one with a bathtub and shower, toilet, bidet and sink and the third, with a large shower, toilet and sink. Everyone happy: no morning queues. Only enjoyable chit-chats in the evening.
Sauna with a View
A sauna just for Chalet Zoila! A tour around the house and Voila! You find yourself in the relaxation room, complete with shower, sink and gloriously….a lot of space!
And then, upon entering the sauna, a delightful smell of pine, the crackling fire and the glow of hot coals. The water spits, hisses and dampens. There’s a stained glass window between you and the world. And you think to yourself – are we inside or out? You’re inside, looking out at nature’s spectacle – and her protagonists are the surrounding mountains – Laugen, Kornigl, Vigiljoch, Hochwart. Not forgetting the sun, the clouds, the moon and stars.
Feeling warm, you bravely step out into the garden to reach the outdoor shower or to experience the tingling sensation of snowflakes on your skin. A blissful moment after a day on skis, after a hike, or a lovely lazy day in the Chalet garden or simply on the sofa!
The garden around the house slopes to one side and is flanked by ancient shrubs and trees. The three larch trees stand guard at the Leckplått. In front of the house, facing south, you can find a large flat terrace – the best place to spend the holiday afternoons daydreaming. And for the children? There’s a wooden playhouse. In the storage room offer space for all types of games and sport equipment
New times call for a new name. “Weberhäusl” (the weaver’s house) had been the name of our Chalet Zoila for a long time. During the XVII and XVIII centuries, the house was a small farm with a stable, a barn and a residential building. In the 1920s, Franz Fromm, a wine merchant from Barcelona, travelled the world with his family and his servants, and in 1922 he bought a villa in Merano. It is assumed that his work had been very profitable: in 1924 Franz Fromm bought the two houses on the Leckplått, which at that time, were connected. Zoila, one of his daughters, married Georg Greeve Lindau – the actual painter who created the Santa Notburga fresco on the south wall of our Leckplått Chalet. Some of his paintings can also be found outside and inside the Zoila Chalet, including the fresco near the entrance. Even Zoila was an artist and had an eye for beauty and art. The two lived an isolated life up here on the mountain. The “Weberhäusl”, as the Chalet was called at the time, offered them the privacy they sought.
