“This hotel has not yet been inspected and reviewed by the Hotel Guru but has been recommended by other guides that we respect.
The Vigilius Mountain Resort hotel in the South Tyrol is totally tuned-in. It has not been plonked onto the landscape; it nestles there. In fact, Vigilius fits in better than most of the traditional dwellings scattered about these parts. Sleek wooden beams two storeys high stretch horizontally for several hundred metres. At one end, the structure encloses a hillock from which sprouts a cluster of firs, giving the impression of a green monument. The other end is stopped by 'culinariums' (that's 'restaurant areas' to us). Plenty more gorgeous wood forms an almost traditional chalet, topped off by a glass treehouse.
