In our eyes, Belmonte has always been a special oasis in the mountains: a place to rest, to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and to meet nature.
We wanted to share this beauty and tranquillity with our guests, and for us the most important thing is that our guests who spend their vacations here really feel at home: therefore we would like to give you some information so that you can enjoy Belmonte to the fullest.
Unlimited WiFi is available throughout the house free of charge. Password: belmonte17

After each stay the apartments are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. If you stay at Belmonte for a certain period of time, your apartment will be cleaned weekly and the bed linen will be changed. In this case, please arrange directly with Mrs. Tilli the day for cleaning your apartment. If you want to change the towels more often, just let us know.
Garden and terrace
The garden in front of the house and the large terrace on the first floor are accessible to all guests. You can use the deck chairs, sun loungers, umbrellas, tables and chairs or spread your towel on the lawn or in the shade of the trees - make yourself comfortable!
In the small vegetable garden next to the bocce court we grow lettuce, vegetables and herbs for you: help yourself.
The bocce court has seen many exciting games: try it too!
If you take your dog into the garden, please make sure that he does not disturb or frighten other guests. For the daily needs of your dog, we ask you to leave our park.
On Renon we try to be careful with our resources and therefore we pay special attention to the separate collection of dry, organic, plastic, paper, glass and metal waste.
Please observe the following guidelines during your stay at Belmonte:
Undifferentiated dry waste: everything that is not recycled, including Tetrapak and plastic films
Organic waste: all organic waste except eggshells, bones and shells (use a paper bag: bread bags are also fine. Plastic bags and corn starch bags are not suitable for the fermentation system practiced on the Renon and should be used only for dry waste)
Plastic: only plastic bottles are collected separately. All packaging such as yogurt cups, milk bottles and other beverage bottles, supermarket containers, tubes and miscellaneous packaging, as well as Styrofoam are collected together with undifferentiated dry waste
Paper: only clean paper
Cardboard: only clean heavy cardboard boxes (leave packaging such as pizza boxes - without food scraps - or courier packaging near the paper garbage can)
Glass: there is no distinction between light and dark glass
Metal: cans and tins
The trash cans in your apartment will be emptied weekly by the cleaner. However, if they are full earlier, please empty them into the trash cans outside, near the entrance to the parking lot behind the wooden gate on the left (organic and dry waste) and under the wooden roof (all the rest).
For used batteries you will find a container in the parking lot next to the Rittner Stube, in front of the store Plattner; there are also containers for paper, metal and glass.
Thank you very much for your help!
There is a washing machine and dryer on the first floor for guest use if needed. Please bring your own laundry detergent and use the dryer only when really necessary: in the summer months, laundry dries best in the fresh air, in the sun on your balcony.
500 meters from Belmonte there is the small but well-stocked supermarket Plattner (closed on Saturday afternoons), in the village near the tourist information office there is another larger supermarket, Frilo, open also on Saturday afternoon. For organic food lovers and people with food intolerances, in addition to the supermarkets' offerings (good selection of lactose- and gluten free), there is the Helianthus store in the village centre at Peter-Mayr street 5. Organic products are also offered at some of the stalls at the farmer's market, which is held on Saturdays at the Kaiserau parking lot (bus station).
