Ernas Haus - Student Co-Living at the Winder’s farm

Solid living quality and a sustainably constructed building at a fair price. Erna's house is the right address for students who want to live in their own apartment, but with other students next door.

The 18 apartments are a real highlight at the farm. A special living feeling for all those who appreciate great comfort in a small area. Erna’s house is located close to Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences and only a few steps away from the farm shop. Family connection to the Winder’s included.
