Located near Salzburg, the Solarferienhaus S3 blends low-impact technology with high-impact design—and it’s now available to rent.

Glass doors open the home to an expansive wooden deck overlooking gorgeous Alpine views.

If you’ve been itching for an excuse to head to Austria, look no further than the freshly revamped Solarferienhaus S3 (Solar Holiday Home S3). Once an outdated 1970s structure, the A-frame now combines eco-conscious credentials with swoon-worthy design thanks to a thoughtful renovation by architect Thomas Ziesel. Yet, the home’s blackened exterior and timber entryway aren’t even its biggest updates.

The freshly revamped A-frame features a solar-paneled roof and an innovative timber entryway.

As part of a holistic concept that mixes solar living, solar mobility, and solar leisure, the Austrian rental is topped with photovoltaic panels that produce enough energy to not only power the home, but also charge an electric car.
