Planning our trip, some months before, we contaced the Tourist Office of the Werfen Village and took a list of all farms that rent rooms. Top rated "four flowers" was the Rettenbachgut, so we procceed in booking, through the tourist office, as the owner could not be reached by this time.
This farm is outside the village, as you head south for almost 2 km and then turn right and climb the hill for one more kilometer. It's not very easy to be found initially, as nobody could help us find it, but finally we noticed some signs on the side of the road and found it. It;s a beatiful, clean, typical tyrolean farm building with decoration of farming years and some clean, comfortable double rooms,with their iclusive bathroom/wc.
The price was 48 Euros for a double room, (included breakfast, with goods produced from their farm / eggs, ham, cheese, marmelade). We were given a key for the front door and we didn't bother again from anyone there, so we spent our time quietly and nice. The view is very good, as you can see all down the hills, the river flowing and the surrounding mountains. Parking is free of course, and under the roof, protects your car from sun or the winter snow!
As an alternative accomodation (agricultural style) i fully recommend it. It's an unforgettable expirience, even if you are couple, or family with kids, or a group. It;s not luxurious with spa and indoor pool, but it's real and honest hospitality, like going back to your village, visiting grandmom!!! Details for contact can be found in internet sites.
Tip: The lady owner doesn't speak English, but you will manage to communicate using some body language and smile as she is very helpful and kind/smiling person.
