This is a nice old farm located in a beautiful mountain valley. Flower boxes filled with overflowing flowers hanging from balconies overlooking scenic farm lands. Cows grazing in the plush green meadows with overhead clouds just skimming the mountain tops. The farm family Gatt was very warm and friendly.
Excellent location from which to visit Innsbruck and Italy. Our first daytrip was south to Vipiteno-Sterzing, Italy and from there we took the Jaufenpass (SS 44) up and over beautiful mountain terrain to Merano, Italy.
Our final daytrip from Vals was an easy drive to Innsbruck. We toured the Altstadt for several hours before heading back south.
An excellent restaurant in this area is the - Trinserhof - A-6152 Trins - where my travel friend Len had a most excellent Frische Forelle mit Petersilkartoffeln.
