This year I have stayed in June/July at Haus Valentin then four days in Ehrwald at Hotel Sonnenspitz and in September at Hotel Hinterlager in Matrei. They were all excellent. Haus Valentin is the most homely and knowing Monika, Christina and Rheiner well helps and I love his cooking. Sonnenspitz is the grandest and probably best for the older and richer customer. Hotel Hinterlager is very stylish with a lot of thought going into making it special. eg The night time fairy story on my pillow, the saying of the day at our table with daily advice on different walks and the natural swimming pool. It all reflects the personality and tireless dedication of Katharina. The choice of walks is certainly best from your Sud Tyrol bases, especially for those without a car. The vital factor common to all three areas the very high quality of the Collett's staff. They obviously enjoy what they do and are always prepared to give time to people who must seem mostly elderly to them. They also set a very high standard of fitness an d knowledge of the area. Well done Phil!
