Recently l went to the beautiful Salzbugerland to enjoy Hinterglemm in all its winter glory. Not my first time at this lovely Alpine village, but my first time ever though, visiting the ADLER RESORT. I was there to attend the Grand Opening event and experience the ‘YouareAdler’ way of being a guest at this brand new house.
Just got back from a couple of great days in Saalbach and I’m still thrilled about this positive vibe I’ve experienced over there. Almost 10 years ago I was in Saalbach for the first time, but this time it turned out to be totally different! I had already heard a lot about it. The event was created by the ‘fab 4’ – Wim, Fabian, Anouk & Laura – and rolled out by the professional and dedicated Dutchweek crew. My expectations were high and I was prepared for everything….
There is always much to derive from the check-in experience in a hotel. My expectations were high this time. I had already heard a lot about Das Central and I was wondering how it would be to spend 2 nights in this top notch hotel, the only 5 star house in Sölden.
This summer VALAVIER Aktivresort in Brand, was one of our temporary homes abroad. Staying at the Valavier surprised us in many ways, but there are 3 specific things about this lovely place I like to share. Of course, the rooms are fully equipped and the Wellness & Spa facilities are well taken care of, but that’s what you may expect from a hotel like this. It’s the feeling you get when you stay here, that’s what actually makes the difference.
I am happy to share this last one in the range of beautiful Chalet Villages, at least for now….I’ve discovered many more of these treasures worth sharing, so stay tuned for more in the future. Now…let me show you the Chalet Village Böhmerwald in the beautiful Bohemian Forest; last but definitely not least!
Previously I shared a post about the amazing Chalet Village Bergdorf Priesteregg and I promised that more of these treasures would follow later. Well….here is the next one in the range of Luxury Chalet Villages.
While researching I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that Austria is home to many more of these beautiful mountain villages. Again I’ve picked a traditional one. Wood, pure craftsmanship and lots of luxury extras, it’s all there! Check out the features of Almdorf St. Johann in Sankt Johann im Pongau.
If you yearn to escape from the hustle of daily life, unwind and reload your energy level in a very pleasant way, you might consider a stay here at Bergdorf Priesteregg. It’s the combination that makes this one so very attractive: maximum privacy and the luxury features of a top notch hotel.
You can’t do one without the other, at least that’s what I think. I can’t imagine going back to the hotel for a relaxing evening, after a day on the slopes: No! For me a perfect day in the snow definitely has to end with ‘Fliegender Hirsch’, a fine glass of Grüner Veltliner and singing & dancing to the tunes of the (Schlager) music. I’ve surrounded myself with great people over the years, who enjoy this as much as I do. Lucky me!
Obertauern is one of the hotspots among the major ski resorts in the Alps. It’s known for snow from November to early May, for après-ski and great events. But also for 100 kilometers of slopes and 26 ski lifts. The Ski-Round Super Seven carries skiers to the 7 highest peaks of Obertauern. Knowing this, I wanted to see and experience it myself. You guys know that I am a huge fan of the Serfaus-Fiss-Ladis area, but hey…I am always in for something new! So, last January we went to Obertauern. I was very excited. Would it really be such a hotspot? In terms of ski experience, snow conditions, good cuisine, excellent service and fun in apresski? Expectations were high!
Yess! The first snow has fallen in Austria and that always makes me very happy but also a bit nervous. Which hotel are we going to book this year for our ski trip with the kids? If you guys know that feeling and could use some help to choose the one that will make your stay an unforgettable one, I’ve have handpicked some very fine hotels for you.
