My little heaven

Honestly: Being woken by the sound of cowbells flattered my soul. This soundscape was the first thing I heard in the morning. I do not want to miss this ever again: Relaxation at the highest level.

The view from my outside lounger was magical. After a hot sauna session I appreciated the fresh alpine breeze on the terrace even more. Lulled in warm and comfy blankets I could have read a thousand books out here...

The land of milk and honey

Late risers pay attention: Breakfast is served until 2pm! Take it easy and don’t rush, a luscious breakfast will await you on the sun terrace. By the way, the honey comes from the hotel’s own bee colonies.

My personal highlight

The canoe tour on the Lake of Lucerne was a real highlight and complemented my stay perfectly. As I never did something like this before, I was extremely excited about being out there on the water. In my opinion, it doesn’t matter whether I’m talking about the heated infinity pool with its breathtaking views towards the mountains and the lake, my canoe trip on the waters of Lake Lucerne or about the magical atmosphere which is prevailing at the boutique hotel: As a result it’s not easy to leave this paradise again. This place gave me a feeling of privacy and took me far away from my daily routines… I am sure you will understand what I am talking about when visiting Villa Honegg yourself: Don’t hesitate, you surely won’t regret it.

In the middle of Lake Lucerne you are surrounded by snow-capped mountain peaks. Taking a canoe trip in this scenery feels very special.
