by | 14 07 2023 | Hotels, Slow travel, Travel

Surrounded by mountains and right in the heart of South Tyrol, LA VIMEA is the very first fully vegan 4* hotel in Italy. Their philosophy revolves around our connection to nature and a true dedication to sustainability.

The healing ambiance is supported by a natural pond in the middle of the hotel garden, a wooden deck for daily yoga sessions as well as an indoor and outdoor spa area. As an adults-only retreat, this is for those seeking peace, tranquility, wellness, and a very unique 100% plant-based experience. Chef Luca Sordi prepares an exceptional 5-course dinner of organic gourmet cuisine with regional and seasonal ingredients directly from the hotel’s own herb garden or local vegetable farmers.
