A strange object has landed next to an old farmhouse in the East Tyrolian village Nussdorf. Floating on stilts over the hill the exceptional holiday house looks like a blend of a UFO and a bird. Therefore its name Ufogel (a combination of the words UFO and Vogel which means bird in German). Inside the wooden body – that is covered with traditional shingles – feels like a cosy nest and offers both security and a sense of openness. The scent of wood flows through the room and the panoramic window makes you feel being outside. The building with a floor area of 45 sqm proves to be a real space saver: On the ground floor is the kitchen with large dining area for up to 8 people. In the half-floor you find a lounging area overlooking the East Tyrolean mountains. A few steps higher under the domed roof is the sleeping area that can accommodate up to four people and a bathroom where you can shower with views of the mountains.
