Stepping out from the fireside lounge with a glass of the finest white wine to enjoy a vista from Villa Honegg’s nest-like comfort of cozy warmth and swiss hospitality, one can look out over a high pastoral landscape as cow bells rhythmically punctuate the still crisp clear air above the quaint chimneys of high mountain villages. Learning about transhumance in the alps, traditional lifestyles of animal husbandry as the cattle are cared for by local farmers, one can almost imagine Heidi’s high pasture grandfather will shortly step outside of his cabin door to glare down at the provincial villagers who so despised him.
Gazing out towards the distant mountains where tomorrow’s trek may reveal a Barbegazi among the nooks and crags, helpful and shy and ready to point the way back to the main path, one can mentally prepare for a grand adventure. With mornings and evenings often obscured within the haze of low-floating clouds a simple hike can be filled with the wonder of a rich imagination’s fantasy.
Step back inside to a delicious feast, this Villa originally built in 1905 but completely refitted in 2011 located on mount Bürgenstock is a haven of peace and privacy. A menu of delectable experiences is awaiting your indecision to make up its mind. From spa treatments to eBikes, steam baths to floating in the indoor and outdoor pools, each option is more appealing than the next. Four days have never passed so quickly.
