History and philosophy

When taking over the formerly classical hotel with the wonderful extensive park the available basic structures were kept. With this basis the complete hotel was refurbished and modernized and converted into the first 100% vegan hotel in South Tyrol.

When rebuilding the house the owners paid attention to sustainability and ecology (examples: solid wood in the rooms, regional materials,  local businesses). In 2016 the LA VIMEA was opened as the first purely vegan hotel in Italy.
