Location and history of the Pension Lärchenrain

The house of the Pension Lärchenrain was newly built in 1980 – in recent years, its quality has been repeatedly improved through various renovations. At an altitude of 1,100 meters, you will be welcomed with rural tranquillity. The holiday guest house is distinguished by the sunny location on a hill, surrounded by unspoilt nature. There is hardly any traffic, which disturbs the peaceful silence in the mountains. The Pension Lärchenrain is located just four kilometres from the ski lifts of the RacinesGiovoGmbh, and is therefore ideal for winter and summer guests.
