Your 4-star hotel in Caines near Merano – Hotel Sonnenhof

The place in the sun
for your dream holiday

Take a deep breath, holidays at last. Can you feel the corners of your mouth lifting as if by magic? It’s time for a smile.

Welcome to the sun-kissed village of Caines. Here, where the Passiria Valley begins right next to Merano, enthroned on top of the “panorama terrace” is the Hotel Sonnenhof, a friendly establishment that more than lives up to its name. A holiday retreat with plenty of character. A place of empowerment with a sense of tradition and a panorama like something out of a South Tyrolean picture book. And an open and friendly host family with warm, sunny smiles.

Can you also feel the special sense of ease around the place?

It’s good to have you here!
