Let go & feel good...

according to this motto we went to South Tyrol for the weekend.

There is hardly a better place to collect good memories than at the JOAS hotel**** in the tranquil San Candido, surrounded by the magnificent mountain scenery of the 3 Peaks in the Dolomite region. 

By the way San Candido is a small municipality with only 3367 inhabitants in the South Tyrolean Pustertal Valley. The municipality borders on Austria to the east and north. Because of that fact it is just a 2 hours drive from my home town Zell am See and is therefore perfectly suited for a short trip

The location of the JOAS makes sports enthusiasts happy all year round (in winter even ski in & ski out) and serves as an ideal starting point for all adventurers or those who just want to wake up with a gorgeous mountain view and admire the panorama.

On the top floor there is a small, lovely wellness area with an imposing view of the Dolomites.

The best way to start the day is on the wonderful sun terrace with a delicious organic breakfast that really leaves nothing to be desired.

The charm of the small and very familiar hotel convinced us completely. Really a very harmonious concept of modernity & tradition. Definitely an insider tip in the Dolomites region and worth checking out! For more information about this awesome carbon-neutral hotel check their website:

By invitation of JOAS - my opinion remains unaffected by that.

Row Row Row your boat....

A visit to the 30 minutes drive away Lago di Braies was of course a must!

A really impressive mountain lake in the Braies valley that captivates with its wonderful green colour. It is part of the Fanes-Sennes-Braies Nature Park and rightly a protected natural monument.

What is the best way to explore

the Lago di Braies?

Right, by rowing boat of course.

A little tip on the side, best to visit it very early in the morning, otherwise you have to expect long waiting times and you won't get a parking place anymore!

It's a really hyped lake and it's getting very crowded the later you will arrive.
