San Luis Italy

You and Your Wedding - - Snowy Retreats -

LO­CA­TION

Set around a glacier lake in an un­spoilt alpine park in the South Ty­rol re­gion, San Luis is a clus­ter of dreamy wooden chalets and tree­houses. It’s a two-hour drive from Verona air­port, but you can spend that time ad­mir­ing the stun­ning back­drop of the moun­tains and JHWWLQJ \RXU ÀOO RI SLQH IUHVK DLU

HO­TEL HIGH­LIGHTS

There are 16 tree­houses and 22 chalet rooms, with ev­ery­thing from sin­gle stu­dios to two-storey spa­ces. Many come with their own hot tubs and saunas. The re­sort’s show­stop­per has to be the un­be­liev­able spa area in the main club­house, where you can sink into the most com­fort­able sun­loungers and re­lax E\ WKH ÀUH RU WUHDW \RXU VNLQ LQ the sauna and steam room. The cen­tral pool is both indoor and out­door, with a por­tion ex­tend­ing all the way to the mid­dle of the lake out­side. Must-try treat­ments in­clude an anti-age­ing fa­cial and the mir­a­cle-work­ing physio mas­sage.

GET­TING AC­TIVE

The re­gion’s end­less hik­ing trails are on your doorstep. It’s worth the trek to Wurzer-alm 1707, a restau­rant lo­cated at 1,707 me­tres, where you can treat your­self to a hearty por­tion of dumplings. If you’re af­ter ad­ven­ture, book in for an ice-climb­ing ses­sion and then re­ward your ef­forts with an ice cream back at the re­sort.

DE­LI­CIOUS DIN­ING

An ex­ten­sive break­fast buf­fet, based on South Ty­rolean food, is de­liv­ered to you each morn­ing. When you wake up, you are greeted by a won­der­ful ar­ray of fruits, pas­tries, breads and fresh eggs for you to pre­pare in your own kitchen. In the evening, you can choose to dine wher­ever you like – in the in­ti­mate restau­rant area, on the ter­race, or in the com­fort of your own chalet. The menu changes nightly, but you can al­ways ex­pect the most ex­quis­ite Ital­ian cheeses and meats to ap­pear. Ev­ery­thing is fo­cused on lo­cal in­gre­di­ents, bring­ing to­gether tastes from the Mediter­ranean and the Alps, to stun­ning ef­fect.
