Maierà is located directly on the Mediterranean, surrounded by Italy's largest natural park, the Parco Nazionale del Pollino. Due to its exceptional location and architectural peculiarity, the picturesque village in Calabria has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Claudia Kuse was in Maierà for the first time in 2010 with her husband and son Konstantin. They told their friend Simona Ceccarelli about this unique area and the authentic, lovely villagers. The village also became a place of longing for Simona. They often spent happy holidays here with their families. In 2021, the women decided to awaken the Hotel La Pastorella from its slumber in Maierà. “The property was forgotten after the owner died. It was a matter close to our hearts to create a place for guests here again. This is how the idea matured and emerged,” says Claudia Kuse. With great commitment and great attention to detail, La Pastorella was extensively renovated and reopened in 2022. The result is a wonderfully small but extremely fine retreat for individualists. From the terrace you have a direct view of the sea glittering in the sunlight. The enchanting rooms and suites bear the names of Italian islands, and the breakfast spoils you with regional delicacies as well as home-baked bread and jams from your own fruit and vegetable garden. There are also themed evenings with regional culinary specialties from the region. Fantastic beaches can be reached on foot in just a few minutes.
In the heart of Tuscany, just a few kilometres from the rolling hills of Chianti, Italy's legendary shoe designer Salvatore Ferragmo and his wife Wanda discovered a property in the 1950s that captured their hearts - VIESCA Toscana. They bought it with the intention of turning it into a private residence and spent unforgettable holidays there with the whole family. In the meantime, their grandson Salvadore has followed in his grandparents' footsteps. The entrepreneur had the 16th century manor house, the suites and the elegant villas belonging to it renovated once again and created a unique hideaway for people who have succumbed to the charm of beautiful Tuscany.

True luxury lies in the purity of the nature of the Tyrolean Alps and in the time you spend here.” The Wellness Hotel Arpuria of the host family Fahrner truly lives up to this credo as a “hidden luxury mountain home”.

On the outskirts of the 600-strong community - surrounded by a magnificent natural backdrop - the internationally successful skiers (the hostess was a two-time world champion in powder skiing) opened their luxurious Engadin Chalet on 8 December 2022 after a two-year construction period. Up to six guests can experience unforgettable holidays in this hideaway at 1717 metres above sea level.

They want to switch off the fast life for a while, enjoy a comfortable, beautiful ambience. We want to fulfil these wishes for them. Among other things, we offer a chalet bread service, massages, skiing lessons in our in-house ski school, give tips on restaurants and excursions," explains hotel manager Fabian Erny, who completed his training at the renowned César Ritz Colleges, Lake Geneva.
