Fodor's Review

Experience mountain views—even from the showers—at this terrific lodge with an artsy interior design. You'll notice handcrafted touches like textured fabrics, unusual artworks, quirky colors. Stay in the alpine villa with its private spa pool or in the lodge. The three-course breakfast is delicious, with 10 meal choices, homemade Swiss miniloaves, fresh Italian coffee, and the Albergo Egg Nests (a secret recipe). You can arrange spa treatments, yoga, and activity packages.
