You will receive all the necessary information in German, English, French, and Italian throughout your relationship with us.
 
Contact with Guests
Would you like to make a decision about all bookings and inquiries? With us, it is possible. Guests can contact you by telephone, in writing via e-mail or through a booking inquiry. You alone decide which bookings you want to accept.

Each BnB will receive a separate page on our website which includes a promotional text (in 4 languages), 30 photos, precise room details, and accommodation details using pictograms.
 
Classification Stars and Inspectors
The BnB classification stars have been used since 2003! The classification, which must be completed by all hosts, is revised every 4-5 years to meet changing needs and requirements.

Our inspectors are experienced, well-trained, and are happy to advise you.
