When it comes to hidden gems - places so intimate and authentic they ride under the radar of mass tourism - Hoteldorf Grüner Baum is a gleaming example of the best of these such places. With an enduring tradition of hospitality, this family-owned retreat in Austria's Kötschach Valley is set up as a cluster of buildings surrounded by gorgeous mountain scenery. The historic Main House hosts reception, guest rooms, a library, and a number of cozy lounges. The Landhaus, Kösslerhaus, Florihaus, and Jägerhaus are adjacent buildings that also house rooms and suites, in addition to a number of amenities created to make your experience that much more enjoyable. Your room is thoughtfully furnished and set up with care, including en-suite bathrooms, bathrobes, private terraces, satellite televisions, and mini bars - and no two spaces are exactly alike. Luxury touches like spa bath amenities, scenic views, and opulent furnishings create an inviting and special atmosphere, welcoming you to relax and breathe in this incredible destination.
