At 1,500 meters above sea level you will find an idyllic little mountain village. Beside the mountain restaurant Brunellawirt there are about 20 "Maiensäße" and holiday homes here that form this village character. Once used for agricultural purposes, the "Maiensäße", as the little houses are called in the Montafon, remained. In May, cattle used to be herded up for the first time. The farmers stayed on these seats (usually house with stable) until they moved on to the Alps. Today Garfrescha is a popular starting point for numerous hikes and in the evening a wildly romantic place to enjoy the peace and quiet of the mountains. And at the Brunellawirt you will find delicacies for all tastes accompanied by conviviality the Montafon way.
