What better place to dive into the latest swimming trend than from your private lakeside chalet? Proved to lower blood pressure, spark up your metabolism, boost immunity, aid sleep and increase endorphins, wild swimming is the perfect addition to a spa weekend in the Italian mountain hills.

San Luis is an oasis of calm found hidden on the Avelengo plateau in South Tyrol. The 22 lakeside chalets and 17 single or double-storey treehouses are set around a natural lake, each with their own sauna and many with private hot tubs.

The slick modern interiors have been designed using local wood, black slate, raw linen and handmade furniture. The glass walls and high ceilings create a feeling of complete immersion in the surrounding nature.

Even the spa at San Luis blends perfectly into the landscape, with open fireplaces, an inside-outside pool, hot-tubs sunk into the lake and natural therapies using local herbs and oils.

San Luis offers Treehouses or Chalets from €300 per person per night on half board basis. Minimum 3-night stay. For further information visit sanluis-hotel.com.
