Prepare to be wowed by the Art Deco Hotel Montana in Lucerne - a luxurious oasis perched in a prime spot overlooking Lake Lucerne. It’s a spectacular example of what hotels are all about- a little slice of luxury away from home in an outstanding location with exquisite views.

Echoing the peak of 1920s tourism, this hotel boasts lavish style and charm. Its prime highlight, aside from its excellent location and view, is the Scala Restaurant. 

Inspired by tastes from southern Switzerland, Italy, France, and Greece, the menu is carefully created by skilled chefs and changes seasonally to highlight local and seasonal ingredients for innovative dishes. There's also a wide selection of wines for every taste and a great new vegan menu.

And let’s not forget the pièce de résistance, the Scala Terrace. With a panoramic view of Lake Lucerne and its charming town, this is where you’ll want to savour every last bite and sip.

Peak Views at Hotel Alpbacherhof

Alpach, Austria

Despite being only a two minutes’ stroll from the centre of Alpbach, you would be forgiven for mistaking this spa resort hotel for a wilderness retreat. Celebrating uninterrupted panoramic mountain views from the back terrace of the stunning Tyrolean landscape, the hotel is immensely proud of its luxurious ¾ board menu, offering a sumptuous feast of contemporary Austrian Tyrolean cuisine in a traditional Alpine bar and restaurant. 

Hotel guests are offered three choices of main course in the evening, and an in-house sommelier will advise you on a huge selection of local wines so you can sit back and savour the food and drink as the sun slips beneath the tips of the mountains. 

But one of the best things about the Spa Resort Alpbacherhof is its absolutely outstanding spa facilities. Breath-taking, undisturbed panoramic views across the Alpbach mountains and meadows will completely sweep you off your feet.

The outdoor swimming pool is heated all year around, and guests are allowed to wander around the beautiful gardens throughout the summer, discovering shady spots to enjoy with a book and cup of tea.


Castle Height Bites in Lake Bled

Lake Bled, Slovenia

While many people would relish a table overlooking the iconic Lake Bled castle, having a delicious dinner or lunch from inside the castle is even better.

Built in 1011, Bled Castle has been lovingly restored and holds a museum of Slavic history, exploring the tumultuous story that the castle holds over the course of 1,000 years.

With its vantage point from the top of the precarious cliff overlooking Bled, the lake and the mountains beyond, it’s understandable why anyone would want to build their castle in such a beautiful location. Even more understandable why anyone would want to establish a delicious restaurant on the site too!

Rated again and again as an outstanding restaurant with attentive staff, delicious food, and of course that stunning view across Lake Bled and the Julian Alps towards Bohinj, guests just keep on returning. The perfect location for a special birthday, anniversary, and the castle even lends itself as a wedding venue as well.


Trattoria Loncrino

Lake Garda, Italy

Situated in an elevated position above Torri del Benaco on Lake Garda, this small, family-run and unassuming restaurant is a hidden gem. 

An outdoor terrace that overlooks Lake Garda and towards Pulciano comes to life with lively locals who love their food genuine, hearty, home cooked, and filled with love and made with the finest locally sourced ingredients. Getting to the restaurant is a leisurely stroll into the hills above Torri del Benaco, and you are rewarded with the food and wine upon your arrival. 

The food is no-frills attached down-to-earth Italian goodness, enhanced by the surrounding beauty of Lake Garda. This restaurants great reputation has spread through the word of mouth and no wonder our guests keep and on returning to it year after year.
