Just an introduction we are Dawn & Jeff Wilks.

We have 2 grown up children ,Chris 36 and Zoe 33. We come from a small town in the east of England called Lowestoft. I suppose it all started about 25 years ago when sadly Dawn's Mother Passed away at the time we needed a break so we had said to our children you have a choice of two holiday destination, America, or Skiing,

so there choice was to go Skiing, so from that year on we tried to take them every year money allowing.

So the years went past and about 15 years ago after visiting Austria not just for the Skiing but for summer holiday too,

wondered if it would be possible to move there, so we spent some time researching and found that it was infact possible and started work for the move . I had been working for a joinery factory for 27 years and needed a change of job so leaving there went back to work for a Honda Motorcycle dealership in Lowestoft, Motorcycles being a passion of mine since i was a child.Dawn also being a qualified hairdresser for over 25 years also felt she needed a change of direction.

The Next step was to sell our house and in the meantime to learn German, easier said than done and in the 3 years that followed kept going to Austria sometimes 5-6 times a year to find the perfect B&B in the ideal location. so in September 2008 after 3 years of searching we found THE FARBERHAUS B&B IN LOFER in need of renovation and T.L.C and in June 29 2009 we loaded a 9 ton truck said goodbye to England and started the journey. So after a year getting the B&B ready and the major building work finished  we now think we have also put the love back into The FARBERHOUSE  for you our Guests to enjoy the perfect stay.

So why not come and spend a holiday here with us in Summer or Winter and you will be guaranted a warm welcome.


P.S and don't forget in Summer its not cold, temperatures can reach between 22-24 in March 36-39 in June, July August, time and from September till end October can still be very pleasant and very colourful.
