With the family to the mountains, to the sea or rather on the farm – within Europe you have numerous opportunities for quality time with your loved ones. Today we present you four socialbnbs for your perfect family vacation in Europe, which will not only give you an unforgettable overnight experience, but also activities for young and old in nature. Let’s go on a family vacation!
Surrounded by animals in Tiny House in Austria
Are you looking for a varied vacation for you and your family? Then the Esperanza farm in Oberndorf an der Melk is the right place for you! Spending the night with your family in a cozy Tiny House with outdoor terrace in the countryside between Vienna and Linz is really something special. But don’t worry: the cute caravan is not as small as it sounds at first.
There are sleeping facilities for two adults and two children. In addition, the house is equipped with a kitchenette with cooking facilities and its own shower and toilet – so everything needed for a few nights. The highlight of this socialbnbs are, of course, the approximately 70 animals that live on the farm and that can be fed or taken for a walk on request. The animals include donkeys, horses, sheep, alpacas, mules, pigs, chickens, ducks, budgies, guinea pigs, cats, dogs and a turtle.
The nearby surroundings also offer excellent conditions for hiking, walking and cycling in the midst of a pre-alpine landscape in the heart of the Lower Austrian Mostviertel and surrounded by meadows, fields and forests. Among other things, the Erlaufschlucht in Purgstall, seven kilometers from the farm, is considered a popular excursion and hiking destination in the region. The Melktal cycle route and the Erlauftal cycle path are easily accessible for cyclists from Esperanza.
Lunz am See or Lackenhof am Ötscher are considered exciting excursion destinations and can be reached by car in about 45 minutes. Stift Melk, as a baroque world heritage site in the Wachau, as well as the renaissance castle Schallaburg offer regular exhibitions and are considered nationally known cultural centers in the region.
Hiking in Germany
In the Wampendobler Paradies you have the choice between the vacation apartments “Wolke 1” and “Wolke 2” for you and your family. The apartments are cozy and light-flooded rooms in country house style. Everything you and your family need for a perfect vacation is available.
We would like to address all people to raise awareness for life itself: e.g. for nature, animals, fellow human beings as well as the environment!
In this socialbnb children experience that the sheep on the premises come to them quite voluntarily when they themselves are “quiet”. Not only can you relax your body, mind and soul with the animals, but also in the wellness area. In addition, felting provides a meditative way to relax.
Around the accommodation you can enjoy a variety of excursions: Biking and hiking trails, four different thermal spas, golf courses, various museums (open-air museum Massing, brewery museum, glass museum, tractor museum…), various amusement parks, game park and bird park, western town, tree trail, glass blowing, castles and monasteries, churches as well as cultural and architectural monuments, recreation areas, European nature reserve, nature reserves, national parks (Bavarian Forest, Berchtesgaden) and much more!
Family vacation in ecovillage in Italy
The cozy organic farm Borgo Basino Folk School was built on the foundations of an old castle and is located in a panoramic position in the beautiful foothills of the Apennines in Val Bidente. The four apartments in the stone house are furnished with rustic and antique furniture from Romagna, giving the space a warm and familiar atmosphere. The apartments are fully furnished and equipped with private kitchen, bathroom and bedroom – so perfect for you!
The socialbnb offers fresh vegetables and fruits that you can harvest yourself in season if you are interested.
