Ahhh Austria... Sublime country in the heart of the Alps, captivating by its mountains, country of mother nature, solo trip, with friends, family or romantic getaway Austria is the ideal place, summer or winter, for escape. So, I decided to show you the most beautiful hotels in Austria, and I start this series with the hotel Haus Hirt, in Bad Gastein, a famous spa and winter sports resort.
Haust Hirt ****
Before leaving for South Africa, we put our suitcases on the 3rd floor of this lovely spa hotel, in a room with a view on the mountains. And inevitably, we love it... A nice way to say goodbye to Europe that we will not see for our next three months. We spent our afternoon at the spa, evening at the restaurant and bar at the hotel which I highly recommend.
The next morning, we enjoyed the view when we wake up, but also during our breakfast.
I love my stay at this hotel, which is PET FRIENDLY if I have to really pick a negative point, I would say the indoor pool does not allow us to admire Mother Nature.
It cost between €170 and €300 for a double room depending on the season.
This includes access to the SPA and breakfast.
The price of dinner is €33, starters, main courses and desserts.

The gardens of the hotel, spread over 2 hectares, offer a showcase for over 60 works of art created by world-famous artists carefully selected by the hotel owner.
Monsieur Chapoutot - the hotel owner - is passionate about contemporary art. In partnership with famous art critic Gérard Xuriguera, this passion has given rise to a hotel in its own class at Marrakech, ranking among the most beautiful houses in the world.

Immense sculptures sit enthroned there, among them those of A SUN WY, Guy de Rougemont and Léopold Maler, and large frescos of ERRO are hidden in the garden, giving it colour and imagination.

After Milan, Mallorca, Seychelles we head for a new country that we have both discovered a few years ago: "Marrakech".
We stay at Lodge K during our 03 days of research for our photo production for a clothing brand.
Going back to Marrakech after 10 years for an autumn production in August?
Why not, the customer is the king after all XD.
My father being a big fan of Marrakech for more than 20 years (he also has an apartment for more than 10 years) I was very happy to come back to this country with this time, a woman's eye (going at 17 with my family and this time with my boyfriend is a totally different experience).
Welcome to the riad: Lodge K
This jewelry is located in the luxurious area of “la palmeraie” that included no less than 5 riads with different universe and decoration.
We stayed in the sublime lodge: "Egyptian".
Pool time at Lodge K
One of the favorite things is the hotel's huge pool
A stay in Morocco without going through the hammam? no way ... Do not misunderstand the Moroccan hammam is very different from the one that you know in Europe!
#BESTMOMENTEVER with my sweetheart we offered ourselves a royal hammam Moroccan (I dream about it only to think of it) followed by a relaxing massage.
What about the food ...
A typical Moroccan breakfast delicious and impeccable however for lunch and dinner the food was simple I recommend eating out.
