I've been coming to this valley since the beginning of the seventies and in time it has preserved its calm, beauty and charm even though being close to a pretty big town like Bruneck.
it is my third year in a row that I spend two weeks at the Schwartzenstein Hotel. The place is a haven for people seeking quiet and peace, who love hiking but also bathing in the beautiful pool (inside and outside are connected thru a sliding door)) or getting a massage or a sauna.
The hotel is family run: it provides excellent service with a personal touch which usually lacks in anonymous chain hotels. Rooms are very clean, provided with all the amenities, bath robes included, plus a nice basket for the pool area with towels and slippers - The rooms are spacious, with terraces full of flowers (the most beautiful are the ones facing South).
Common areas in the hotel are spacious and elegantly furnished with a nice bar open all day. There is a beautiful terrace overlooking the pool and the mountains where you can have lunch.
They offer, as it is often the case in this area, 3/4 board which means a buffet breakfast, a buffet lunch and a four course dinner (choice of food) usually very good and varied. They have a dinner gala and local music once a week. People are really nice, helpful and provide group gymn, hiking tours, MT trails and Nordic walking during the week at no extra fee.
An additional bonus is the Internet point (three computers) plus all the sitting area is connected wi-fi and everything is free!
The atmosfere and dress code are relaxed although wearing bath robes is not accepted for lunch. All in all a great place to unwind, great for family with kids and couples alike: while girls take care of themselves in the Wellness area, boys can go hiking or MB and everybody is happy!!
A great experience I'll come back next year as well, really worth every cent you pay!
