When it comes to gastronomy few hotels can pride themselves on having not only a Michelin star but also 31 Gault Millau points between its 2 main restaurants. 'Luce d'Oro' and 'The Fidelio' will leave your taste buds tingling with their delicacies and renovated Italian recipes. All watered with the fine selection available at the wine & champagne cellar.

The 11st G7 Summit was held at the hotel in 2015 with then U.S. President Barack Obama in attendance.


During summer, the area offers a multitude of hiking, biking trails and golf courses. There are also several golf courses and the nearby lake is a great place to try sailing or swimming! In winter a cross country ski trail runs up to the hotel.
