3 Eco-Hotels in nature
Meisters Hotel Irma
Located in the residential area of Merano and yet an oasis of calm. The family-run four-star superior retreat “Meisters Hotel Irma” is located in a huge park. Besides the main house, the Villa Amore and the residence, it is mainly a very special spot, that interests me: the suite in the tree.
The suite in the tree is a is a luxuriously appointed treehouse, which was built in the mighty pines in the park. Wonderfully hidden, a little walk from the main house, perched this fantastically airy loft above the already lush green park of the hotel. Merry birdsongs in the morning, romantic crickets chirping in the evening – and in between a lot of fresh air to breathe. Thanks to the large glass fronts, you have even to stay in bed to feel immersed in nature. My highlight: the 65 square meter terrace where you can have breakfast or enjoy extensively at dusk a glass of red wine. During the day you can be explore Meran, you remain lazy by the pool or contracts for silent reading hours in the shady oasis on the private treehouse terace. From 210 € per person incl. Gourmet half-board. For more information’s click here
