Above Merano, in Avelengo, the Josef Mountain Resort welcomes, as in the best South Tyrolean tradition, with the relaxing and therapeutic proposals of the spa, the forest inside the “Forest spa”. The intent is to bring guests as close as possible to nature to let them enjoy its precious, enveloping and soothing benefits.
