Ottmanngut has more a dainty blueprint of a bijou residence, than hotel. It is truly a wonderful, stylish little house of gentle nobility and quaintness set to sweet-scented fauna at the foot of the Alps, in the Italian spa town of Merano, South Tyrol.
The lovingly curatorial hand of the owning family have narrated the interiors to weave rich heritage with original features brushed with a poetic softness. Eloquent touches, period antiques and an eclectic array of furniture pay homage to the past, with just a requisite nod of modernity.
Every suite is different with each element chosen specifically, at Ottmanngut, an orchestrated melange of striking boutique luxury and timeless style graces throughout.
Ottmanngut has always been a place of creative solace, with enchanting stories of artists, writers and thinkers who have found tranquillity here, often inspired sitting under the Cypress and Lemon trees in the Mediterranean gardens.
A luscious retreat to idly chill, retune and always return to.

Family Kirchlechner have been rooted in this South Tyrolean house since 1850 and today, brothers Martin and Clemens run this restored family hotel that is as much their home.
Chief of aesthetics is their father, a passionate lover of antiques and someone who also nurtures the lush Mediterranean gardens. Culturalists are heart; Martin embraces local artists, writers and performers and as such Ottmanngut is known as a bit of a secret insider venue – a spirit that makes this house come alive.
The Kirchlechner’s hands-on natural approach makes them unique hosts, as original as the interiors.
Ottmanngut is situated a few minutes walk from the heart of the spa town of Meran (Merano) in the Adige Valley of South Tyrol, northwest of Bolzano in Italy.
Sitting among the vineyards looking up towards the Tessa mountains, next to the meandering Tappeinerweg trail and the St. Nicholas Church, Ottmanngut is close enough to explore the town's Habsburg heritage, the Botanical Gardens of the Trauttmansdorff Castle, the thermal baths, and is a perfect base to explore the Val Passiria, between Avelengo and Tesimo.
To the northwest of Merano are the Val Senales and the mountains that look down over the Ötz valley.
