That’s amore

An Alpine-Mediterranean love story

Passion for our work, our guests, for the small details, for Alpine-Mediterranean cuisine, for nice wine, regionality, profundity, for delight, music, nature, joy of life and honesty. That’s what Vitaurina Royal and its owners stand for. The parents Rosa and Bruno committed themselves to build this business and we, Karin and Klaus, are operating it with our hearts and souls, like they used to.

A touch of Sardinia – in the midst of the mountains! Something you will only find here, in Mühlen in Taufers. Mountains and the sea – the scent of mirto and espresso after a meal will bring you the Italian flair closer. Aside of activity holidays in South Tyrol you may treat yourself also to some dolce far niente all’italiana and try out Alpine wellness in our relaxation area. Enjoy nice Italian wines and celebrate like a real South Tyrolean.

Hearty, authentic, sincere. The perfect premise for an Alpine-Mediterranean holiday in the Ahrntal Valley in charming South Tyrol.

Our unique love story is set amongst green pastures and impressive mountains. A taut South Tyrolean guy falls for the Italian beauty. Will he conquer her heart? Do they fit together? Aren’t they too different?

The host family

That’s ... famiglia!

From the small Villa Budrony to Vitaurina Royal Hotel Superior – a house with a long tradition

The history of Vitaurina Royal begins in 1969, when Bruno and Rosa Budroni opened their guesthouse “Villa Budrony” with just four rooms. Budroni is Sardinian and means grapevine; this “grapevine” grew with great effort and a lot of love for their work. As time went by, more and more guests came to spend their holiday at Villa Budrony and also the guesthouse itself grew constantly. In 1976 it was expanded by 20 new hotel rooms and changed its name in 3*** Hotel Panoramic Speikboden. In 1991, the hotel was further enlarged and got another 10 rooms, becoming the Hotel Royal.
In July 2019 we opened the newly renovated Vitaurina Royal Hotel Superior, which being lead now by the second generation of the Budroni family – daughter Karin and her husband Klaus – for already 16 years.
With a lot of passion and commitment of the Budroni-Mair family at the Tinkhof and Budroni Plaikner family, an authentic and traditional family business has evolved which successfully managed to combine the two Italian regions Sardinia and South Tyrol. The history of the Vitaurina Royal Hotel – a love story with happy end.

The template for our romance – the love story of the parents, Bruno and Rosa.
