Schgaguler Hotel in the Dolomites

Schgaguler Hotel in the Dolomites

After 3 amazing days at San Luis, we thought we had seen “everything” from South Tyrol! But nope! Our chauffer picked us up from San Luis Hotel and brought us to Castelrotto. Three more exciting days were ahead of us!

At the end of May we spent three days at the Schgaguler Hotel in the Dolomites. We absolutely loved it! In this blog post, I am glad to present you my photos from this experience.

I’d like to take a minute to thank Sandra who has been so adorable to us during dinner time. Seriously, it’s not often that you get treated so nicely! I guess she makes everybody’s dinner an unforgettable experience with her smile and friendliness.

I’d like to thank wholeheartedly the Official Tourism board of South Tyrol for inviting me to explore their beautiful region and the family of Schgaguler Hotel for being so great and kind as hosts. It’s a shame that I didn’t know how beautiful this part of the world is. Now I know!

San Luis Retreat Hotel & Lodges left us speechless! From the moment we checked in till the moment we checked out, we were in awe. Even at the moment I was editing those photos, this place was giving me goosebumps. I am not good at finding the right words to describe such an amazing life experience. As usual, I will let the the photos do the talking! Enjoy!

In the midst of private forests and fields, surrounded by wooden chalets and treehouses, I learnt to listen to the silence!

Here it doesn’t feel like you are staying in a hotel. It feels like you stay in a small exclusive village and you are happy to meet your neighbors for lunch and dinner. Breakfast is served in your chalet.

I’d like to thank wholeheartedly San Luis Retreat Hotel & Lodges for the invitation and for all the pampering! Thank you for creating this sanctuary for all of us to enjoy!  It’s literally one of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed. I want to stay positive and believe that it won’t take me long time to return!

When I got the invitation to visit Bad Gastein, I somehow felt like that it was going to be an exciting weekend, and although I had to study for the upcoming exams, I bought a train ticket, packed my luggage with warm clothes and left for the mountains without giving it a second thought. You have probably seen it on my Instagram that I have been to Bad Gastein but on The Viennese Girl blog I publish photos that you cannot find on Instagram.

That weekend in the Alps was extraordinary and magical. As you can tell from the photos, everything was covered by snow and although I was freezing, I was happy to be there, taking pictures of that dreamy landscape! Together with a group of like minded people we roamed around Bad Gastein, took photos, had breakfast at Haus Hirt, dinner at Regina Hotel, took the one-person aerial lift to reach the Bellevue Alm restaurant, rode horse sleigh, and visited the cutest hotel in the world Hansi Hansi. Those were my favourite moments from that weekend in the Alps.

During my return trip to Vienna I was thinking that Bad Gastein must be beautiful throughout the whole year. All green during spring and summer and all white during winter. I was also thinking of that room in the corner, where I spent one night, that had view of the snow covered mountains and the valley….that loft room in “Tessa”…♥
