Masterminds: Martina, Priska and Anna Ganthaler from Hotel Muchele

The Muchele, it's cute and fine, a summer living room in the heart of South Tyrol. The host family Ganthaler developed the loving design hotel with a lot of heart and female power for it to become a true island of well-being.

The Muchele is refreshingly traditional and unaffectedly design-loving. What began in 1952 with grandpa Johann Ganthaler as the Innermaierhof has developed over the years into a casual, colorful living room for individualists. Already in the third generation, the Ganthaler family runs the house with a lot of love and charm.

Fortunately, there are only 42 suites, and that's a good thing. As a result, it's cozy and especially personal. All rooms and suites make the hearts of design lovers beat faster. The hosts Martina and Priska live and love the Muchele - clearly it's their secret of success. As trained sommeliers, they place great emphasis on enjoyment for all the senses.

At the exclusive Kuchltisch, which is located in the middle of the kitchen, guests are treated to a seven-course surprise menu by chef Patrick Holzner. And because everything beautiful takes place outdoors, there's a garden kitchen and cozy niches to sit in. Epicureans may dine al fresco in the summer living room, on the tastefully planted garden terrace.

If you want to take the pleasure home with you, you'll find delicacies and the finest wines in the in-house delicatessen Cuvée - some of which come from their own winery Tenuta di Fra', which mother Franziska has been running since 2017 in the Marche, next to the Suites & Breakfast Poggio Antico.

The secret is to focus on class instead of mass. This has always been of great importance for the Ganthalers. Thus, even more space for feel-good moments was created during the latest qualitative renovation. The Anna Spa with its green palm garden bears the signature of star designer Patricia Urquiola. A highlight is the porphyry brine infinity pool with an enchanting mountain view. Saunas, a light-flooded relaxation room and a fitness orangery as well as new signature treatments invite you to relax.

From the interior to the sustainably produced clothes of the own label Anna Teresa, you can find extraordinary style everywhere in the house, of course 100 percent made in Italy. The fashion label is the heart project of the youngest sister Anna, just like the Anna Spa with its own beauty thermal line Anna Care.

It's the skilful mix of tradition, lived hospitality and a lot of courage that guests love so much; just as much as the loving feeling of familarity and the consistent architecture, which is broken again and again by colorful, valuable design highlights. Here, you find your second home for a while - here, you are part of the Muchele summer fairy tale.
