We recently traveled to Sexten, Italy for a week of skiing. While my tireless husband woke (me) up every day at 7 am to go skiing, fearing there could be someone before him on the slopes, I on the other hand decided to start my days very relaxed, going on lots of walks and enjoying the wellness program the hotel had to offer to the fullest. I also went a little bit skiing and even went cross country skiing for the first time.
We were very lucky with the weather and as you can see from the pictures we had lots of snow!
I enjoyed taking walks through the Fischleintal all the way to the very picturesque Talschlusshütte, where the best Buchteln (sweet yeast dumplings) with vanilla sauce were waiting for me almost every day ;-)
A SYMBIOSIS OF WELLNESS, DESIGN AND CULINARY HIGHLIGHTS
We stayed at the Hotel Monika, where we have been before. It is a true wellness oasis in the midst of the beautiful winter landscape. The hotel offers a breathtaking view of the Sextener Dolomites and the rooms are furnished with lots of wood, in a refined and modern style and a lot of attention to detail.
South Tyrol is known for its unbeatable hospitality and this can be experienced in the hotel’s illustrious culinary offer. In addition to the 5 course menu every evening, the hotel serves a lavish breakfast buffet, lunch with daily changing hot dishes and a “snack buffet” in the afternoon with local ham and cheese platters and delicious homemade cakes. This culinary experience, that leaves nothing to be desired, is all included in the room price!
In addition to the gourmet feasts, comprehensive sport activities are offered, including Aqua gym, yoga, back fitness, and guided hikes. There is also a luxurious spa area, an indoor and outdoor pool on the roof of the hotel. I loved swimming my laps in the glistening sun, admiring the panoramic view surrounding me.
Since last year the travel category on my blog has been neglected, but I’m planning to post more about the wonderful trips I took and hopefully will take this year!
