Chalets Valsegg

Luca Zuccolo

White mist lies over the heated outdoor infinity pool and mingles with the fresh, clear mountain air. In the background, 17 modern nature chalets rise up against the snow-covered forests and meadows of Val Pusteria. 8 of them were newly built in 2023. It's an enchanting picture, reflecting the traditional character of the Alps so perfectly that mountain lovers never want to leave again. The 78 to 150 square meter houses were built from larch and Swiss stone pine wood. Clear lines, valuable natural materials and stone give the chalets a typical alpine look that is pure and graceful in character. If you long for maximum enjoyment and soothing relaxation you can immerse yourself in the chalet village. Active guests are drawn out into the winter wonderland that unfolds around the resort. You can easily reach the region's ski areas by ski bus. For that special winter feeling, there's a joint mulled wine drink once a week.

The snow crackles softly under your feet as you take in the romantic setting of the adults-only mountain resort LaPosch against the massive backdrop of the Mieminger mountains. 16 individual huts have been built here from local wood; each of them has a warm fire crackling in the fireplace at this time of year. Guests can choose their personal favorite from cosy alpine chalets, luxurious lodges and villas. For the ultimate luxury factor, some villas have been equipped with a private warm water pool. Here, completely undisturbed, you can watch the snow drift as well as the starry sky. The lake view from the LakeSide villas is almost magical; thanks to direct access, ice bathing has been possible since 2023 - it's a mega trend! For ceremonial rituals and treatments, you can enjoy the secluded Massagestadl. And those who love winter with its active possibilities will find happiness on their doorstep: 130 kilometers of cross-country ski trails and hiking trails lead right past the chalet village.
