Boutique accommodations

We focus on boutique accommodations, small family hotels or guesthouses, which offer something more. Emphasis is laid on the coziness and genuineness of this type of accommodation. While some are traditionally furnished, others are modern. Apart from standard accessories (TV, bathrobe, mini bar), there are also high quality beddings, world trade mark cosmetics, and others.

Extraordinary accommodations

This is intended for those who are driven by curiosity and fond of adventure. Apart from that, you have comfort at a high level of quality. You can choose from a tree hut or sleeping on hay ricks, or camp in wooden huts - all with the comforts you are used to (WC, bath, open-air Jacuzzi), or even stay at a manor in the middle of a vineyard with modern and folksy furnishing.

Thermal spas in wine regions

Stronger emphasis has been put on thermal tourism during winter, enabling pampering in saunas, swimming pools, beauty treatments, massages, health tourism, and the like. You will find yourself in complete relaxation with these 4 or 5 star accommodations and spa facilities.
