Design aparthotel with swimming pools, spa, and coffee house in the mountains of South Tyrol
Aparthotel VillaVerde is your first choice if you're looking for a special place in the Italian mountains. It is beautifully situated in the midst of nature, with a range of fine amenities, the comfort of an apartment and the luxury of a hotel. During a holiday here, you will lack nothing. Whether you wish to travel as a couple or with your family, everything and everyone has been considered.
The oh-so-fine design apartments of VillaVerde are excellent for unwinding. They are spacious, fresh, bright, new, and provided with comfortable furniture and fine amenities, such as a dreamy bed and a large rain shower. The interior is tastefully chosen, and from the terrace, you can enjoy the breathtaking view of the mountains you wake up to and go to bed with every day. That truly gives you a feeling of peace, pure peace!
Explore Merano and South Tyrol
Thanks to its ideal location and the many walking and cycling paths around the property, Aparthotel VillaVerde is the perfect starting point for exploring South Tyrol. Lace up your hiking boots tightly and take the cable car in Merano, where you can take beautiful hikes high up in the mountains or go out with a sturdy mountain bike. Spectacular trails have been laid out throughout the surrounding area, taking you to the most beautiful places. In winter, you can strap on your skis, as there are plenty of skiing opportunities. Traveling with children? The 'Witch's Spring Path', just under an hour's drive, is highly recommended. It's an adventurous barefoot path that combines myths and nature, and sharpens all senses!
After some strenuous activities in the mountains, it's nice to relax in Aparthotel VillaVerde. Grab a blanket and settle down in the park surrounding this House of Hideaways accommodation, enjoy a cup of coffee and a piece of homemade cake in the characteristic villa from 1908, take a few laps in the natural swimming pool, or drift off to the modern spa. It has exactly the pampering atmosphere your body and mind need after an active day outdoors. In addition, you will find several saunas, a steam bath, a relaxation room, a beauty salon, and a saltwater pool. Plus, various soothing treatments are offered. Try a wonderful massage with fresh aloe vera, and have any muscle pain massaged away in no time.
Old & New
VillaVerde is a unique refuge where old and new are beautifully intertwined. On one hand, you have the old characteristic building from 1908 and on the other hand, the brand-new building that opened its doors at the beginning of 2019. Old and new also seamlessly blend together in the interior. For instance, you can find a number of original features in the old villa, which now houses the coffee shop, and throughout the entire aparthotel, there are unique second-hand finds and modern pieces of furniture with a vintage twist.
Family-Friendly Apartments for a Mountain Holiday
The spacious apartments of VillaVerde are suitable for 2 to 4 people and have a maximum size of 80m². Perfect for couples or families to completely unwind during your vacation, thanks to the beautiful mountain views and serene silence. And then there are also comfortable vintage furniture pieces with which the apartments are equipped, a bathroom with a large rain shower and wonderfully fragrant organic soaps. And oh yes, there is also that pleasant terrace with sunbeds and chairs where you can enjoy a cup of coffee and bask in the sun.
A good start to the day!
One of the highlights during your stay at VillaVerde, is the fantastic breakfast that is served every morning from 07.30 to 11.00 am. Chef Hannelore and her team really make it a party! Enjoy homemade jams, croissants, pancakes, organic coffee, sandwiches, local cheeses, cold cuts and honey and an egg just the way you like it. What better way to start your day?!
Delightful outdoor living
Both active people and those seeking peace will have a wonderful holiday at VillaVerde; in the spectacular mountain landscape, numerous outdoor activities are organized, and in the surrounding park, you can enjoy sunbathing, settling down with a good book, and enjoying beautiful views.
VillaVerde is located in the picturesque Algund. A village surrounded by vineyards and orchards and also called the 'garden village' of South Tyrol. Algund is located close to the spa town of Merano and is fun to visit in both summer and winter.
The nearest airport is Innsbruck Airport, which is located approximately 156 km away. From there, you can take a taxi or rent a car to the accommodation.
From Amsterdam, it takes approximately 11.5 hours to drive to Algund. Parking at the accommodation is possible. There are no additional costs associated with this.
