HOLIDAYS AT A MOUNTAIN HUT
The green is greener, the blue bluer. And everything seems so very lush, fresh and glorious.
Here there is everything for everyone wanting to reach for new heights: crystal-clear mountain waters, clean air, peace and power, and an ineffable stillness, interrupted only by a cowbell heralding the new day. Add to that the fragrance of wood, the seclusion and breadth of the mountains and forests.
Mountain huts, hill farms, alpine inns, cottages and ski lodges generally lie at high elevations and are romantically secluded, rustically idyllic and appropriately furnished, always reflecting an honest simplicity. Whether with family, friends or as a couple, at 900 to 2200 meters above sea level, a whole new world between heaven and earth, hot tub and pit toilet, reveals itself before you.
You will have to fire up the wood stove in the living area for yourself. There’s a trough of fresh spring water outside to wash in. You will make your way to bed by candlelight. The night is full of stars, the meadows are radiant in every color imaginable, or they are covered in snow, not a footprint to be seen. You go hiking, skiing or stare towards the sun, with the smells of flavorful hill-country cheese and tasty bread still tantalizing your nose.
