Summer Holidays 2015
Summer holidays 2015. When we had to decide what kind of holidays we wanted to do this year, we chose without a doubt that holiday package that I call “Spa&trekking”. By now you should know that in summer I love nature and wellness: all year long I have to “be perfect” (makeup, hair, clothes…) in my urban background so spending holidays surrounded by nature is a perfect way to run away from my routine, relax and take care of my body… on the inside and on the outside. Forgetting of hairstyling and makeup (hair and skin have the right to breath and relax a bit), a total immersion into the slower and peaceful rhythm of nature, a good amount of exercise and delicious food. Again, we chose Austria for our holiday. It’s very close to Italy, and they’re particularly good in term of hospitality and tourism management. And let’s talk about luxuriant nature and the landscapes so different on hills and higher peaks. Besides, in case you miss “civilization” you can visit and discover some wonderful cities like Vienna, Innsbruck, Salzburg, Graz… Needless to say, I’m deeply in love with Austria! :)
Summer Holidays 2015: the Diary of My 3 Weeks of SPA and Trekking (Part 1 of 3)
Our SPA & Trekking tour of Austria started from Stegersbach, in in the East of Austria, in southern Burgenland, few kilometers from Hungary and the city of Graz (a place where sun shines 300 days a year). Here landscapes are amazing: gentle hills, endless fields, fruit trees and cute little houses just like those in children’s drawings: pointy roofs, squared shapes and white fences.

In this thermal area you can find Allegria Resort, where we stayed for 4 days. Once inside, we immediately perceived the warmth and the intimacy: the staff is incredibly careful to all the needs of costumers and the facility is beautiful! A pinch of the Italian warmth in Austria :) Prices are moderate and the facility is very refined: according to Vogue Bambini that’s the perfect resort for families (children have special SPA treatments, lots of daily activities, huge waterslides to dive into thermal pools and girls can swim with mermaid tails WOW!). The wonderful SPA and the thermal pools are the main reasons why we chose this resort: outdoor and indoor pools with warm thermal water, jacuzzis, geyser, slides for grownups, streams, caverns. 2.200 sq mt wide sauna area with every kind of steam bath, an ice waterfall, infrared barrel sauna, outdoor hot and cold tubs… and the list goes on. Of course the food is delicious: generous buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner with local produce. And if you’re tired of relaxing at the SPA… 50 holes Golf course, trekking paths, bicycles, horses… there’re so many activities you can do!
From Burgenland hills we went in the Austrian green valleys, surrounded by the highest peaks, in the hotel of our dreams, for some more wellness and a lot of trekking! The first region I’d like to tell you about is Leogang Saalfelden, near Salzburg, where we stay for some days. We heard many good thing about this area so we had to explore it!!
We stayed at Mama Thresl Hotel in Leogang. Its funny slogan says: “Urban soul meets the Alps”. The interior design of this guest house is incredible, the attention to details is amazing. Everything around me made my jaw drop! For instance you can climb on the front wall (Seriously! It’s true!), every room has a terrace with a hammock (and we chose one with an outdoor hot tub too… to take a warm bath under the starry sky!), on the roof there’s a solarium with pouffes and hammocks, guests eat at tables made out of gigantic stone pieces or huge tree logs combined with the coolest design furniture. In the room the TV and the table are hidden behind wood panels… rooms, corridors, the whole facility is covered in wood. Just add some cool music, DJ sets with and Alpine twist and you get a super stylish place, for young people right in the middle of the Alps! I particularly liked: the excellent breakfast (have a look at the photos… it was so tasty!) and all the daily activities organized by the hotel: such as open-air yoga class , bicycle rental service, barbecue and night shows.
Here, we practiced a lot of trekking (You can find all the info about the best excursions at the front desk of the hotel or in Leogang city center). I personally suggest: itinerary number 14, 15 and 10. We took these pics during these excursions. Enjoy! :) :)
I tried to get our amazing experience across and I hope you liked this juicy post! I’m waiting for your comments, my beautiful friends. See you tomorrow with the second post from my holidays :)
