Weekend Getaway at Bachmair Weissach

We visit Germany quite often, but we usually go to Munich or Berlin. This time we decided to explore one of the most beautiful regions in Germany and visit the beautiful Rottach-Egern, which is next to the famous Lake Tegernsee.

It is close to Munich and we heard that many Munich residents go there during the weekend to relax in beautiful surroundings. The beauty of the lake and the majestic Alpine landscape make Tegernsee a year-round destination. The scenery is truly gorgeous as the surrounding mountains and the lake are breathtaking.

There are many activities available in the area – mountain hiking, skiinig, sleding, paragliding, touring the region’s many castles and palaces, experiencing the traditional forest festivals, riding, sailing, jogging, golf, tennis, mountain biking and skiing to name but a few. So we were excited for an active weekend. 

Amongst other activities, our plan was to take a lift to a nearby mountain, that is the 5650-ft high Walberg.  Unfortunately the weather was not the best, but thankfully we were staying at the amazing Bachmair Weissach hotel, which has every amenity you could imagine. From an amazing luxury spa with outdoor and indoor pool, fitness, pool and ping pong tables, 2 restaurants, a bar, fireside lounge…we weren’t bored for a second 🙂

As you can see the decor is luxurious and cosy, but still very modern. Every piece of furniture has been custom-made exclusively for the hotel and every detail has been carefully thought out.

Our room was spectacular, we had a separate living and sleeping area, walk-in wardrobe and a big bathroom and a kitchenette, but one of our favourite parts was a huge balcony with gorgeous views over the surrounding mountainside, with a river rushing under our terrace – we felt like we were in a fairytale 🙂 The stream is actually a part of the spa, so you can get your feet wet on warmer days.

The wardrobe had bathrobes and matching flip flops and also a bag with towels witch was really handy since we went to the spa both days.

One of our favourite parts of the hotel was the pool and the luxurious 1000m2 Bachmair Spa, which includes a Finnish sauna, heated indoor pool, steam room, tepidarium, ice grotto, Alpine hay bath and an oriental steam bath. The spa is spectacular, but they are actually opening a new, even bigger spa in the summer, which should be amazing.

With such good restaurants in the hotel, we were pretty sure that breakfast is going to  be amazing too – and we were not disappointed. The buffet was amazing – We could choose from every possible breakfast dish you could think of.

We were especially impressed with the selection of non-dairy milk, as there was a selection of 6 different ones you could choose from, which was definitely a nice surprise. We really loved the green smoothies as well as a large selection of teas we could choose from.

Wi-fi is complimentary for all guests and it works excellent, but we truly recommend you try to stay away from working and try to relax 🙂 Have a glass of wine at the bar, visit a spa or go for a walk in the nature…this hotel is perfect for a long weekend getaway.

The hotel is also very family-friendly, so we recommend you take the kids with you. It has a huge playroom area, with qualified staff that looks after the children, there is a separate kids pool in the spa area. In the huge, 2.700 sqm space of the Bachmair Weissach Arena the kids can enjoy some real action, with the huge inflatable crocodile, trampoline, badminton, basketball, play parkour and much more. On the weekends and during the Bavarian holidays they offer extended, fun activities for kids. They also offer child care free of charge – how amazing is that?

One of our favourite thing about the hotel is the attention to detail, that you can spot throughout the architecture, interior design & service. That is one of the things that really makes staying at the hotel an outstanding luxurious experience. The staff of the hotel definitely added to the amazing experience as they were super nice and helpful.

The vibe of the hotel is really relaxing and peaceful, but at the same time the hotel has lots of life – the bar and the restaurants were full in the evening, there was live music playing, people were friendly, cheerful and having fun.

We had such an amazing and relaxing weekend and we truly recommend Bachmair Weissach to anyone that would like to unwind and be treated like royalty.

Villa Serbelloni

Nestled in the heart of the Lake Como area is what is regarded as one of the most luxurious hotels in Italy.

It is located right by the lake, so most of the rooms have a breathtaking view of the lake and the mountains.  There are four different room types in the hotel. Of course, all of them boast their own uniqueness, both in terms of style and overall comfort (although all rooms are ridiculously comfortable). They do, however, all have similar ‘features’. This includes televisions, telephone, WiFi, private bathrooms, bath tubs, shower, minibar etc. Basically, anything that you could expect from a hotel where the focus is on comfort.

In terms of amenities, there are plenty for hotel guests to enjoy. You will have accesses to a steam bath, sauna, gym, garages, private beach facilities, swimming pools and a whole lot more. Again, these have all been designed to ensure that you enjoy your vacation. Since this is a small hotel, having a little over 90 rooms, these amenities boast a great deal of privacy too. You can really kick back and relax with them. This is very rare for hotels in the region. The smaller hotels tend not to have a plethora of amenities, and the larger hotels have a lot of overcrowding. Villa Serbelloni seems to have managed to get things right.

Italian cuisine is known to be among the best in the world. Thankfully, you are not going to have to venture far to sink your teeth into some of the best that Italy has to offer.

There are two restaurants at the hotel, both of which offer slightly different dishes. Having tried out both of them, they are impeccable. Not the cheapest places around, but worth each and every penny that you spend on them. They will make the perfect location for a romantic date, or maybe perfect to have a great meal with your family!

In terms of what it is like saying at the Villa Serbelloni, then you can expect high levels of comfort. There is a concierge service at the disposal of all guests. We truly felt like royalty the whole time we were there:)

They are very knowledgeable about the area too! If you have a question, they will be more than happy to point you in the right direction. They will even be able to book things for you. It does take a lot of stress away from the whole vacation! Every question we ever had (and we never had a complaint about the hotel) was answered with a great deal of professionalism.

The staff put a lot of effort into ensuring that this hotel remains looking fabulous. It is one of the cleanest hotels we have ever stayed in, and the grandiose décor is something to behold. We seriously doubt that anybody who stays here will be disappointed with their trip.

In summary; if you are looking for a gorgeous hotel to visit where you can just kick back and relax, you are going to be hard-pressed to find any hotel better than the Villa Serbelloni. Just make sure you book early, this is a hotel which seems to fill up rather quickly!
