When it comes to mountain views, there’s no better place to find them than in Italy’s South Tyrol region. The landscape is straight out of a fairytale, with lush greenery, sprawling valleys, and a pristine blanket of white snow in the winter. Nestled within these picturesque surroundings, is a spa oasis beckoning visitors to spend the night.
The Apfelhotel Torgglerhof, German for Apple Hotel, is an idyllic mountain retreat open to anyone looking for a relaxing escape from the hustle and bustle of their everyday life. The hotel prides itself on not only being a vacation destination, but also a working farm with apple orchards throughout the property. Locally sourced and homegrown food is always a part of the menu and is a big draw for many visitors to the hotel. Additionally, loyalty members receive a dedicated apple tree in their honor, and the hotel owners have created a sparkling apple wine from their yearly harvest.
Meanwhile, the hotel’s spa will excite many fantasy lovers as it’s reminiscent of a hobbit-hole of Lord of the Rings fame. The entrance is tucked into the hillside with a carpet of green obstructing the hidden magic on the other side. The interior opens up into the valley, providing guests with stunning nature views as well as access to the hotel’s indoor-outdoor infinity pool.
After a day of pampering, patrons can retire to one of the 18 new suites added this past year. Some of the best rooms happen to be on the ground floor, which connects to a front terrace and features hanging outdoor beds for guests to enjoy. Of course, the upper floors are nothing to scoff at either as they boast some of the best views of the surrounding mountain range.
Each area of this hotel has been meticulously designed with comfort and sustainability always in mind. This extraordinary location will immerse you in the natural wonders of the surrounding valley as you sink into the lap of luxury.
