10 things that make VillaVerde so special
This is the VillaVerde
We have put a lot of effort into creating a unique retreat for YOU with the VillaVerde, very close to the Kurstadt of Merano! In addition to all the new things, the loving character of the villa was to be preserved, but above all it was our wish to continue it in the modern new building. Architect Christina Biasi von Berg has given her best in all areas with a great sense of aesthetics with regard to the combination of old and new. We ourselves have visited flea markets and antique fairs throughout northern Italy and in other European countries as far as Paris. With the found objects purchased there, we want to create that feeling of living and vacation where nothing at all comes off the peg. It doesn't matter whether it's the individual furnishings, our friendly service or the perfect breakfast in the coffee house!
1: Location and concept
The VillaVerde is located right on the border between the garden village of Algund and the Kurstadt of Merano. The best of both worlds is practically at your feet. While the village centre of Algund, but also the Algunder Waalweg and the Tappeinerweg (both belong to the most renowned representatives of their kind) are only a short walk away, you can reach the Merano city centre in a few minutes by bus, which stops directly in front of the hotel. We are an apartment hotel. This means for you that you can take care of yourself in your apartment as you wish, but also that you can get to know and experience the varied delights and tastes of the region in the numerous restaurants in the immediate and wider surroundings.

2: The Lobby
Here we get to know each other personally for the first time, here we are always there for your wishes, here it smells of coffee. And here we will (unfortunately) say goodbye to you, hoping to see you again. Our light-flooded lobby faces south and functions as the pulsating centre of our house. All roads in the villa lead here somehow.
3: The fireplace room
The most chilly place in the VillaVerde. Already with the entry one speaks automatically quieter. Everything here is dignified, you can breathe in the elegant atmosphere between old desk lamps, magnificent armchairs, old and new books and selected vintage furniture. Get a glass of wine at the bar, settle down. When the weather is uncomfortable, we light the candles and when it gets cold, a cosy fire crackles for you.
4: Villa & Veranda
For us a tribute to the history of our house, for you the perfect place for breakfast, coffee and cake, for your aperitif. Warm light, the piano and a fine selection of newspapers, along with a canapé, await you in the back part. A wonderful floor of cement tiles, heavy marble tables, Thonet chairs and comfortable upholstered furniture awaits you in the front bright area of our veranda, which is kept in the classic Viennese coffee house style.
5: Terrace & Herb Garden
In the south (of course!) in front of the villa is your place in the sun. Choose your favourite place on the terrace at the fountain between the lemon trees. Here our guests, but also locals, meet for a chat with (depending on the time of day) coffee and cake specialities or for an aperitif. The herb garden is a bit more intimate. Small, pleasant sitting and chilling possibilities are here between fragrant herb islands, which emit a wonderful smell of lemon balm, lavender and rosemary. Here and there our breakfast chefs picks thyme, rosemary and Thai basil.
6: Pool & natural swimming pond
The VillaVerde offers 2 possibilities for the swimming pleasure: the 25-meter-long pool with a generous interior entrance and the natural bathing pond.
Both are loacted in the park, both offer views of the mountains, both are fundamentally different! The pool is equipped with the latest swimming pool technology and uses salt water treatment and is heated to a pleasant 28 degrees all year round. The natural pool, on the other hand, consists of a large wooden pool IN a natural pond with many plants. So you can enjoy perfectly clean water prepared by nature without coming into contact with stones, slippery ground or the like.
7: Salone & Spa
As one of the very few aparthotels, VillaVerde has its own Wellness & SPA. And what a one! You can relax in the "Salone", in 3 different relaxation rooms and treat yourself to a massage. Here our experienced and competent staff will spoil you with the real Aloe Vera fresh plant leaf for the necessary freshness and relaxation kick. Next door is the large biosauna and a steam bath, in the park you will find the Finnish outdoor sauna with cold water diving pool.
8: The park
The entire Villaverde embraces our large park, which not only with the two pools, but also with many cosy places invites you to sunbathe and relax. The park is still new, but we care for our plants and trees with a lot of care and love, in order to be able to offer you more unique places in the future. Who knows when we can put the first hammock between the deciduous trees?
9: Your Apartment
Fresh. New. Charming. Different. Our apartments were created for guests who like to go their own way. Just like you. Every apartment in VillaVerde has a garden or terrace, a fully equipped kitchenette and spacious rooms for two or four guests. Clear shapes and soft colours ensure a sense of security and well-being - right from the start.
10: The Breakfast
We serve you the best of the region for breakfast. Freshly prepared and as much homemade as possible. After all, you should have breakfast like an emperor on holiday, shouldn't you? Look forward to fresh croissants and rolls, homemade jams on delicious pancakes and egg dishes prepared for you with love. More about breakfast in the villa.
