It is hardly surprising that the Hugo drink was invented here in Naturns in Italy: the large number of sunny days literally calls for a refreshing summer drink. However, Naturns has much more to offer, thus making people want to stay ever since the Middle Stone Ages more than 10,000 years ago. The oldest relics of the region have, in fact, been found right here. Naturns was also a part of the Roman Empire before being incorporated into the Merano region. Since the end of World War Two, Naturns has been part of the Burggrafenamt, a district in the western part of the Italian province of South Tyrol, though geographically belonging to the Venosta Valley. Today, our visitors particularly appreciate unspoilt nature, while at the same time benefitting from over 60 shops and traditional weekend markets and fairs. The nearby town of Merano attracts visitors with its excellent range of culinary and cultural offers, inviting you to indulge and relax.
Holidays in Naturns in Italy
Here, at our hotel, the most important meal of the day is particularly flavoursome. This is because we use the freshest ingredients from suppliers we can trust and rely on: from farms and pastures of the region. Tasty spreads, crusty breads, cheese and cold meat specialities as well as fresh fruit and vegetables for your morning glory juice await you each morning, as do exquisite coffee and a delicious assortment of teas. We prepare your breakfast with love and serve it with a smile – what a way to start your day! Enjoy!
We believe that relaxation is as much a part of a successful holiday experience as is adventure. We want you to put your feet up, close your eyes, and simply let loose. As much as you want to. Why not just do nothing for an entire day? Cats do too. And here in Italy, we also have a phrase for this: dolce far niente, or the pleasure of doing nothing. This can be enjoyed in our Mediterranean hotel garden, our Finnish sauna, infrared cabin, or one of our pools.
Did you know? The famous and popular Hugo drink – made of Prosecco, sweet balm syrup and lemon – was created in Naturns in beautiful South Tyrol. We have enjoyed its refreshing effect for many years, especially on sunny days. Light, delicious, and cooling, it sweetens up your life – just like the Levita Hotel at the heart of Naturns. If you want to learn more about the inventor of the Hugo and know what is behind the name, read on. Enjoy the original during your holidays at our hotel in Naturns.
315 days of sunshine per year also have an impact on the delicious wines produced in Naturns and environs. They lighten up the mood and make you want to enjoy life to the fullest. This makes Naturns a true feel-good place, unique in South Tyrol. Maybe this is also why our picturesque village has been inhabited ever since the Middle Stone Ages. Stone artefacts from several thousand years ago were found in-between Naturns and the Ulten village in 1984. Be that as it may: we hope that Naturns will remain the unique gem it is also 10,000 years to come, and allow many more guests to revel in what life has to offer here.
Naturns is an attraction itself. The Monte Sole mountain proudly sits there watching over the village. The fascinating Juval Castle towers 1,000 metres above Naturns. Countless fruit trees and grape vines as well as traditional alpine huts and farms create a unique flair. If you want to delve into the history of the region, you should pay a visit to the archeoParc in Schnals, where you can experience what life was like over 5,000 years ago. The Gardens of Trauttmansdorff Castle provide the perfect venue for a romantic walk. Naturns is also not far from Merano, luring the visitors with its colourful culture and culinary offers.
