A COMFORTABLE STAY

Sun or snow, winter or summer… right here, it’s always bright, clean, soft and comfy. 

NATURAL MATERIALS & COMFORT

Modern elegance and a centuries-old alpine heritage.

The residence and its apartments are designed exclusively with high-quality European natural materials. Hand-made wooden furniture by local craftsmen with designer elements, high-quality lighting, hand-woven textiles, and premium mattresses and pillows.

 

From the moment you arrive, you will feel our commitment to natural materials as you are greeted by the facade of the residence made of 2,000 square metres of massive Siberian larch wood. The apartment kitchens are equipped with the most modern appliances. The perfect morning starts with a Nespresso coffee machine and a selection of unlimited coffee capsules or hand-picked herbal teas from the meadows.

 

There is also an outdoor kitchen with a view of the nearby mountains and an outdoor fireplace, where you can prepare your favourite dishes or organize a picnic with a view of the Julian Alps.

Upon entering the apartment, in addition to a welcome gift, you will be greeted with a chilled bottle of the exceptional Grof wine; just raise your glass and relax.

The outdoor kitchen offers a Kamado Pro 15″ Diamond ceramic grill – grill, smoker and oven in one, ready for use in just 15 minutes. Its 3 cm thick robust ceramic perfectly regulates and maintains the heat of the grill and allows you to bake at both low and extremely high temperatures (82 to 400 and more degrees Celsius). The exceptional porosity of the ceramic perfectly maintains the moisture of the meat, so the food you cook is incredibly juicy and enriched with the real aroma of the grill.

 

*The outdoor kitchen is not open during the winter months.

AROMATHERAPY

Relaxation or revitalisation upon arrival

Upon entering your apartment, you will be welcomed by a pre-selected scent that will transport you to a world of relaxation or invigoration. There is a selection of 10 different 100% organic essential oils that will envelop you from the diffuser in your living room. Our assortment includes essential oils that are very useful for relaxing after hiking, that take care of your mind and body, as well as for disinfecting and calming down.

 

 By purchasing new oils at our reception, you can change the scent of your stay daily. Our staff will be happy to advise you and help you choose the right oil based on your symptoms or preferences. 

Hand-made Italian Prija cosmetics with the highest quality ingredients awaits you by the sinks and in the shower. It contains 100% organic essential oils, minerals, antioxidants. Warm scents, natural colours and sensual textures for skin and hair represent the perfect luxury for your body care. These cosmetic products have the VeganOk certificate and are free of ingredients of animal origin.

Aromatherapy is effective in restoring psychophysical balance and it strengthens the immune system with the help of plant essences. The chemical compounds of essential oils act on tissues, organs, and the hormonal and nervous systems, whereby the synergy between them is of key importance.

 

The scent of essential oils also affects us. Due to their small molecular structure, they are quickly absorbed through the skin and respiratory tract and enter the bloodstream more easily. Massage can speed up absorption, while a greater proportion of the oil is absorbed through the respiratory tract. Due to the diverse range of chemical compounds, they have different purposes and uses, so carefully consider the choice that suits you.

 

*Before using essential oils, read the instructions and follow the safety recommendations that come with the product. Do not ingest and keep out of the reach of children.
