L ‘ Hotel San Luis , with cozy cabins and tree houses , set in a sunny clearing surrounded by 40 private larch and spruce forest hectares. Set in the picturesque scenery of the Avelengo plateau above Merano, the village is a contemporary interpretationof the traditional South Tyrolean “summer shelter”, in magnificent symbiosis with nature, but with all the exclusivity and the environment that only a sophisticated hotel can guarantee. It is easy to explore the surrounding nature: the most exciting hiking trails begin just a few steps from the chalet door. We have used natural materials that create a warm and welcoming environment: for the construction of the chalets we have used the precious Mondholz (moon wood).
Here is the secret of the immediate sense of well – being that you feel in these places: the large panoramic windows, the choice of traditional handmade items, the use of materials such as slate roofs and clay that makes you breathe the walls, the use of natural linen fabrics, everything is selected with great care. Our structure immediately puts the guest in contact with nature. On the lakeside or in the middle of an idyllic pinewood, our chalets have a fireplace and a private sauna and the tree houses are on one or two levels. Whether you opt for a solution or the other, the experience of staying in San Luis will be permeated by a unique atmosphere. The large clubhouse is located in front of the mountain lake which extends over 5,800 m² and is the beating heart of the San Luis resort; here we find rooms dedicated to relaxation and conviviality, such as reception, lobby, bar, restaurants, cinema, wine and cheese cellar. In an area as large as a barn, dedicated to the pool, our guests can immerse themselves in the indoor pool and enjoy the crackling fire of the adjacent fireplace, or prefer the heated pool outside or even the Jacuzzi in the middle of the pond. Also in the kitchen we pay homage to the “return to the roots”, blending traditional South Tyrolean cuisine with southern Mediterranean flavors. This is why at our farm we produce seasonal vegetables directly from old and new varieties. Another special feature – almost a private ritual, one could say – is the typical alpine style breakfast, which is lovingly served to our guests directly in their chalet every morning, at the chosen time.
