Priesteregg, Leogang / Salzburger Land
At 1’100 metres altitude in the heart of Salzburg’s mountain landscape lies the small mountain village of Priesteregg. From its idyllic situation on a high plateau, a fantastic panorama of the surrounding mountains unfolds. It is a place of solitude, as there are no streets and no noise in this car-free village – instead you can find a village square with a swimming pond, nature in abundance and countless sport possibilities. In the summer months, Leogang is transformed into a paradise for mountain bike enthusiasts and hikers. Six mountains over 3000 metres and 400 kilometres of hiking paths speak for themselves.
Your unobstructed view wanders over the fragrant meadows from the Alpine patio of a cosy chalet. Take a deep breath and extend your horizon from the comfort of your tub. Because bathtubs are, of course, situated unpretentiously outdoors in the summer months. The culinary offer is just as down-to-earth. In Huwi’s Alpine hut you can savour homemade bread; the milk and cheese come from the farmer. And if you are partial to Galloway beef, it is from the hut’s own organic produce.
On request, you can also eat in your chalet – garnished with authentic charm and warm hospitality. The rustic appeal of the high-end Alpine hideaway only reveals its luxury factor at second glance – the warmth from the wood on an open fire, handwoven linen and bedrooms in aromatic mountain pine. The true luxury however is the silence. This is a place where you experience not only tranquillity, but also inner peace.
