Haus Hirt Hotel & Aveda Spa was built as an imposing grand, yet elegant, Alpine lodge gracing a fantastic hillside foothold in the Spa town of Bad Gastein. Today, this famed retreat caters firmly towards the utterly modern urbanite and their sophisticated little clan -is an insiders tip as a family affair whereby stylish grandma feels equally at home as do the digital grandkids.
Elements of the arts and crafts movement dance closely to commissioned pieces of the modern age, oversized sofas play host to an eclectic crowd, it is every bit a "Private House", but one where one feels at total ease.
Whilst the interiors could easily be the centre spread in some glossy, it is an urban country pad without the pretence, it is playful with lovely quirky corners that are focal points for pleasant distraction, a rest bite to take in the cinematic views across this truly enchanting landscape.
We just love the relaxed soul of the place, it has a warmth and sense of character that is hard to find, it is both eccentric yet familiar, stylishly actual and cosy – a cross generational hub that inspires, recharges and simply prompts unwinding, with or without the family clan in tow.
From February 1st to 7th 2014, Gastein Valley in Austria will be the venue for a winter art festival of a very special kind. This winter sports destination invites its guests to experience contemporary art at three different elevations. During festival week, spectacular snow and ice sculptures will be created that inspire you to marvel and dream.MORE
