The Villa Honegg was a wonderful week long holiday for our young family as part of a visit to Switzerland this summer. Initially I was worried as there does not seem to be so much for children to do. I needn't have worried at all, we have never had so much fun! We soon relaxed, the mountain air is beautiful and clean and it quickly helped us to feel really healthy and well. We enjoyed the spectacular views and scenery with panoramic views from every angle.
Our children were made to feel extremely welcome ~ they enjoyed playing in the playroom ~ loved hiking around the cloud covered mountains 'eating cloud' and swimming in the pools, catching grasshoppers. They were very comfortable in our suite which had the most heavenly bed to sink into. The free films were extremely welcome after a long day walking, and it was the little touches that truly separates this hotel from the rest. The mini bar is complimentary and you feel very cared for as a guest because their first thought is your comfort. Fruit bowls, nuts and drinks were left on a little tray every day to welcome us home from our adventures. The children liked their little arrival gift and were touched every day that housekeeping would sit their teddies so nicely on their beds. Every little thing seems to have been thought about carefully. We had great fun on the buggies discovering the region, and enjoyed the mountain closest to us (The lift to the top is not for the faint hearted ~ but truly amazing!! You must do it) As well as the larger mountains which we enjoyed so much.
Every day the lake glittering in the sunshine, and the soft green hills and snow capped mountains were so breathtaking ~ the beauty is very difficult to describe in words. It is just simply heaven to sit there and watch it change all day.
Everyone made us feel very much at home and could not do anything more to help us enjoy this experience, the restaurant staff and everyone else were simply wonderful. The dinners were delicious every evening, and the chef happily fulfilled a few requests we made out of the blue ~ no small achievement with a busy restaurant and a wedding! Nothing was too much trouble for anyone. The breakfast was something to look forward to every day ~ it was such a relaxing and enjoyable stay. The housekeeping was like everything else, perfect, spotlessly clean ~ with limitless fluffy towels and such soft, comfortable beds we could not wait to slip into as night fell around us literally.
I will sincerely miss this hotel with its warm, wonderful staff, the beauty of the area and the warm spa pools. We enjoyed the massages so much and met a fantastic therapist who put me back together!! And could fix my health problems as if by magic by a touch of the foot!
If you need to revitalise your soul, explore the most beautiful parts of Switzerland and wish to be cared for properly and with the uttermost care, then you simply must stay here. We are already planning our trip back!
