Sparkx Concierge loved it! Good   –  In the city's neighborhood du jour this is the new day-night hangout. The casual restaurant is the place to be seen and the hotel has 113 rooms all decorated by a different designer.

Meisters Hotel Irma, Hotels
Via Belvedere Merano, Italy · I've been here · Add to wishlist · Share
Sparkx Concierge added this to her wishlist   –  The spa town of Merano, in northern Italy's South Tyrol, ticks all the boxes for a relaxing Alpine escape. And if romance tops your wish list you won't be disappointed by Villa Amore, a grand three-suite house in the stunning grounds of the self-contained resort of Meisters Hotel Irma.

Villa Amore overlooks a tranquil lake (hop on a rowing boat and glide around the swans) ensconced by a blanket of parkland home to fragrant herb and rose gardens, a pool, sun terrace and flower meadows. Your cares instantly float away in this peaceful place where an emphasis on good food is paramount. Opt for half-board (check out the snack buffet each afternoon) to fully enjoy the inventive Mediterranean dishes and excellent South Tyrolean wines.

There's oodles of opportunity to realise those cheffy aspirations too, with gourmet events and cooking classes regularly on offer. Learn to make everything from fresh pasta to local specialities and take culinary tours and trips to wineries and farmers' markets. However, R&R is also high on the agenda with a host of spa treatments, beauty boosting therapies, saunas, baths and pools.

At 12oC, the aptly named "killer pool" is not for the faint hearted! Back at Villa Amore where vast windows and sweeping balconies look out across the gardens, kick back in the penthouse suite, which spans no less than 80m2, and admire the lake views from the huge roof terrace.

Feldmilla Designhotel, Hotels
Via al Castello, 9 Campo Tures Sand in Taufers, Italy · I've been here · Add to wishlist · Share
Sparkx Concierge added this to her wishlist   –  The hospitality of feldmilla. designhotel, South Tyrol, is like no other. A unique climate-neutral property, each guest room and the apartment is an extraordinary haven of design with polished wood and crisp white beds enlivened with striking art and blasts of colour.

For an utterly refreshing stay book the one-of-a-kind "clean air room" where environmental goodness (it's free of any volatile organic compounds) fuses with tasteful décor without compromising complete comfort. Restaurant toccorosso's gourmet menu sources locally grown produce and uses the wealth of Italian history to create simple, flavourful dishes. And a chic wood-burning fire adds an intimate glow to the lounge bar.

However, the ultimate chill-out area is the spa's relax zone. Unwind here after a spa and/or beauty treatment (try an indoor and outdoor water therapy) but if an adrenaline rush is your desire the South Tyrolese mountains are for you. A host of year-round seasonal sports, feldmilla. designhotel is the ultimate base for outdoor pursuits such as mountain biking, trekking, paragliding, ice climbing, skiing, snowshoeing and golf. The little ones are encouraged to get involved too. (Source: Johansens, Conde Nast 2014)

Castel Fragsburg, Restaurants
Via Fragsburg 3 Merano, Italy · I've been here · Add to wishlist · Share
Sparkx Concierge added this to her wishlist   –  If Heidi dreamed up a five-star boutique hotel in the South Tyrolean mountains it might come close to the alpine splendour of Castel Fragsburg. On the cliffside overlooking the unspoilt Dolomite Mountains and the vineyard-filled Murano Valley, the 17th-century former hunting lodge has all the (von) trappings of luxury any self-respecting baroness could wish for. Castel Fragsburg's Dirndl and ledehosen-clad staff welcome you to your elegant Tyrolean suite complete with panoramic views of the mountains.
Hungry after your trip up the winding mountain road? Castel Fragsburg's delicious food is famous for local specialities with a Mediterranean twist. Mr Michelin agrees and they are rightly proud of their 1 Star. Somehow food eaten at 700 metres in clean mountain air simply tastes better! Days may be spent enjoying an open-air concert at a nearby Schloss, sampling the local world-class tipple at the VinoCulti wine festival or relaxing in the sumptuous spa.
Luxuriate in style with an alpine treatment or alfresco massage overlooking the stunning Dolomites. Then come the evening, head for the glassed veranda and test your vertigo while you enjoy a glass of the local vino straight from the vineyards below.
