Nestled within a lily pond-dotted park, ringed by orchards, Villa Eden is the ideal place to find physical and mental balance. State-of-the-art facilities, treatments and wellness programmes are every bit as impressive as the dramatic backdrop — the mountains of Merano. The Northern Italian town offers an enchanting mix of Austro-Italian cultures. Here, locals sip on morning espresso in the shadows of castles. In the summer, visitors can take to the trails for a spot of hiking, or explore Castello Rametz’s wine museum.

An extensive range of activities and treatments awaits at Villa Eden, all designed to boost health and wellbeing. Providing optimum care for the body, a number of medical services are available, including metabolism measurement, skin check-ups and tests for antioxidant activity.

Further treatments include biophysical therapy with lymphatic drainage, shiatsu massage, sleep disorders therapy, and reflexology. All are tailored to guests’ specific needs and conditions. An array of week-long or short programmes include anti-stress, detox and weight-loss. Under professional guidance, bio-revitalisation, cell regeneration and Botox are some of the aesthetic treatments available to target common bugbears such as fine lines and wrinkles, loss of facial volume and dull, lifeless skin. Elsewhere, the innovative Endermologie LPG System blasts cellulite and localised fatty deposits, while deeply relaxing neuromuscular and draining body massage stimulates skin receptors. Daily consultations highlight progress made.
Keeping fit can take many forms, from early-morning yoga to personal trainer-led fitness classes or laps of the olive tree-lined outdoor pool. Guests can then unwind in the Turkish bath or whirlpool bath.

At mealtimes, light, balanced dishes are rustled up using local, fresh produce. A bespoke menu is based on each individual’s programme, such as the detox menu, which is filled with fresh fruit, vegetable juices and green smoothies to stimulate digestion and the immune system. For those who want a treat, a complimentary afternoon tea is on offer every day.
