A Casa de Aldán & Apartamentos Ardora

Overlooking the harbour, the A Casa de Aldán Hotel is situated in the fishing village of Aldán on the west coast of Galicia. Architect Alfonso Penela has created a building from the ruins of an old salting factory, which preserves the history of the place and at the same time radiates modernity. The reduction to a few materials—raw stone is combined with smooth cedar wood, glass and zinc—creates a calm, timeless ambience. Those who prefer to stay in an apartment will love the zinc-covered Ardora Apartments close to a beach that can be reached via private stairs.

Hotel Gasthof Krone

The traditional Hotel Gasthof Krone is centrally located at the village square of von Hiltisau in the Bregenzerwald. The typical log building from 1838 was originally a courthouse, but has been used as an inn for 170 years. At the beginning of the 2000s, architect Bernardo Bader carefully renovated the building with great respect for its old structure and extendet it with six rooms. What has been added in a modern way is clearly recognisable, but does not form a contrast, but a harmonious addition to the old. The finesse of the local craftsmen can be seen in every detail in the dining rooms and hotel rooms.
