With your suitcase packed, this kind of destination awaits you: ‘Südtirol‘, located between Insbruck and Trient (Italy), German-Austrian speaking, picturesque villages with a distinctively Italian flavour and scenery dominated by the Dolomites (UNESCO world inheritage) and a climate with 300 days of sunshine per year! And if you don’t fancy going on your own, you can do this in company.

Imagine: You are lying in a summer meadow amidst wild flowers, basking in glorious sunshine, chewing on a ‘Grasshalm’, looking up into a perfectly blue sky and at snow-capped mountains, bees humming, listening to cowbells ringing and eating a picnic of home-made bread, cheese, ‘roher Schinken’ (smoked ham), with local wine or an ‘Almdudler’ (herb flavoured lemonade). That’s what holidays are all about.
