So that a normal vacation becomes a dreamlike experience, the people behind it always take care. On the one hand, this is our family with its 100-year, unique history and, on the other hand, our team. A well-rehearsed team whose goal is to give our guests an unforgettable time. We thank you every day for that too.

"It is not too little time that we have, rather it is too much time that we do not use."
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
