Besides many castles and mansions, the component localities of Appiano feature also several venerable residences.

The residences and manor houses of Appiano (Eppan), usually built in the typical Oltradige Style, decorate the countryside along the Wine Road. It is a rather Mediterranean construction style of the 16th and 17th century, characterised by mullioned windows, oriels and outside staircases. One of these venerable buildings is the Hungerhausen Residence in Riva di Sotto (Unterrain), named after a small nobility from Vipiteno, the Hungerhauser.
The stunning Marklhof Residence is owned by the Augustinian Monastery of Novacella, which produces high-quality wines and the Breitenberg Residence is an old estate. Both are located in Cornaiano (Girlan). The Prielhof Estate with its crenellations and the coat of the arms of the Lords of Ciampi, however, rises in Appiano Monte (Eppan Berg), whereas the Lanserhaus Residence in San Michele Appiano (Sankt Michael) serves as a cultural centre. On a hill near San Michele, the Kreit Estate, or Kreithof, greets the passing cyclists and hikers from afar (in the picture).
Several residences in Appiano were converted into a farm in the course of time, including the Turmbach Residence, others accommodate a restaurant, a wine house or a hotel today, such as the Pillhof, Angerburg and Tschindlhof Residences. The Zinnenberg Estate in Appiano Monte, however, is a popular location for weddings and parties.
