Enjoy the South Styria
"What kind of beautiful spots are there on this earth?" I have often asked myself this on ours over the past few days Austria Pleasure trip by the Styria. Today we are at the Loisium Wine & Spa Resort in Ehrenhausen, not far from Spielfeld and only a few kilometers away from Slovenia. It hardly gets any further south in Austria. This luxury resort is just a few minutes from the A9 motorway outside the village with a view of Ehrenhausen Castle and the surrounding vineyards in the Mur valley. The view alone triggers a feeling of well-being in me that couldn't be better. And that is enhanced by what this hotel has to offer: bright and tastefully furnished rooms, a friendly and assiduous service staff who speak to us with our name on the first evening, as well as a restaurant that conjures up delicacies that please the palate flatter.
Feel good in southern Styria
The hotel is the younger sister hotel of the Loisium Wine & Spa Resort in the Kamptal and invited us for two days to get to know it and explore its surroundings. As lovers of wine regions, good food and gourmet travel, we do not reject this invitation, and we are thrilled with what we find: with its modern wood-clad façade, whose shape gives the building an almost filigree look, the hotel fits in spite its modern architectural style well into its natural environment. Opened in June, 2012 offers 105 rooms and suites with beautiful views of nature. We particularly like the light-flooded rooms, the open bathroom, which is separated only by a glass wall and a curtain from the bedroom, a very friendly and generous impression. Breathtaking is the view from the balcony to the castle Ehrenhausen and the South Styrian Wine Routewhich runs directly below the hotel. This makes the Loisium Wine & Spa Resort Südsteiermark the perfect starting point for a tour through the wine region.
Wine in the spa and restaurant of the Loisium Wine & Spa Resort
The fact that wine plays a big role in this hotel is already known by its name. Therefore, as in the Loisium Hotel in Kamptal, there is also an excellent selection of local and regional wines, perfectly matched by the sommelier of the hotel restaurant, to the dishes presented by chef Dominik Stolzer to his guests. We enjoy a wonderfully light Sauvignon Blanc from Benner am Rooberg, a winery just a few miles from the hotel, to our duck breast. And for a light dessert - george blood orange on mint salad - there is a superb selection of Skoff, whose winery is closer to the Loisium Hotel. The same applies to food: ingredients from the region and the respective season come to the table. Sustainability and regional authenticity are very important at the Loisium Hotel in Southern Styria.
The wine of the area we find not only in the excellent restaurant of the hotel, but also in his wellness area. The precious and valuable components of the grape are used in the spa of the Loisium Resort for various spa treatments, where they provide beauty, elasticity and radiant appearance. Natural cosmetics play a big role here.
We think that the Loisium Wine & Spa Resort in southern Styria rightly bears its name, as "Loisium" is made up of two words: "Lois", the short form for Langenlois, the place where the first Loisium Resort was built. and "Elysium", which in Greek mythology means paradise. And above all the latter applies to the hotel in Styria, whose offers and surroundings ensure relaxation, peace and a distance from the hectic pace of everyday life. Here guests can relax and unwind. And for a couple of hours we do that too!
