The last Christmas cookies have been eaten, the empty champagne bottles disposed of in the glass recycling bin, and the relatives are back where you wish them to be. When the festive Christmas days and the New Year’s celebration are in the past, it’s time to withdraw and recharge for the new year. The desire for a place to organize thoughts and fully enjoy winter arises. And this place, which is imbued with magical coziness especially in the cold season, is still a true insider tip: the Chaletdorf Valsegg.
Not far from the Brenner Pass
Just before the village of Vals at the entrance of the Puster Valley, between the edge of the forest and a large meadow, there is a small village with recently 17 lovingly designed and furnished nature chalets with up to 150 m2 of living space. Eight new buildings were added just this summer. It is a piece of paradise at 1,300 meters above sea level, a unique cosmos with natural luxury and country life that envelops its guests like a cocoon, transferring its natural forces, essences, and above all, tranquility to every visitor. “Only with peace” is not without reason the motto of the chalet village, which has been welcoming guests since 2017. The thick blanket of snow that covers the landscape acts like a muffler. The noise of the world becomes quieter, and the carousel of thoughts spins more slowly. From Valsegg, guests can roam endlessly through the forest and meadow, following the traces of animals. Those who wish can grab a pair of snowshoes or a sled, turning a winter walk into a real micro-adventure. Even the more adventurous spirit of ski tourers and skiers finds fulfillment here.

A cozy cocoon
Nothing makes endorphins bubble up as much as returning to the cozy warmth after a few hours in the fresh winter air. In their chalet, guests are allowed to feel like they are in a fortress against haste and stress, and in a personal haven of security. For this, Valsegg has ensured a lot of solid wood from its own forest, precious loden fabrics, fine wool, and natural stone. And since most guests don’t want to leave their chalet because of the coziness, they also find their own private spa with a Finnish sauna, hot tub, freestanding bathtub, and experience shower. But also, the forest bath opened two years ago, the chalet village’s own bathing house, invites relaxation with its quiet zones, the large well-tempered natural stone infinity pool, treatment rooms, and a movement room for yoga and sound bowl sessions.

At the entrance of the South Tyrolean Puster Valley, a small village extends with 17 lovingly designed and furnished nature chalets ranging from 78 to 150 m2 of living space. It is a piece of paradise at an altitude of 1,300 meters, a unique cosmos with natural luxury and country life. Those who want to withdraw from the outside world can spread out in the spacious chalets, be pampered by the spa team of the forest bath, the spa temple with treatment rooms, quiet zones, a yoga room, and an infinity pool. For those who need tranquility, the multi-course dinner can be brought directly to their chalet. The dishes meet the highest culinary standards and place great emphasis on fresh, regional, and locally grown produce. Those who want to dine with others are welcome at Valsegg Eggile, the new restaurant of the chalet village. In the morning, there is a delightful mountain breakfast with various treats. But Valsegg also offers a home for all active individuals who see their chalet as a base for various excursions: walks, hikes, bike tours, alpine hopping, fishing, trips to lakes, or in winter skiing, sledding, snowshoeing, and much more. Shopping trips to Brixen or Bruneck are also just a short drive away. Valsegg is unpretentious diversity for travelers with children and dogs, couples and solo travelers, for the young and young at heart, for athletes and those seeking peace, for connoisseurs and nature lovers – and all of this in every season.
