The Pergola Residence apartment hotel near Merano in South Tyrol was designed by Italian architect and designer Matteo Thun. His architecture is defined by the spirit of place. And thus the terraced property nestles harmoniously into the surroundings amidst vines and apple orchards and integrates local architectural elements. The façades are clad with quarry stones (these recall the retaining walls of the vine terraces) and larch wood. Wood is also the defining design element in the 14 suites, where it is found in the flooring, wall panelling and furniture. All suites are south-facing and have large terraces with panoramic views of the Adige Valley and the surrounding mountains. The design is minimalist and functional and reveals artisanal perfection.
Pergola Residence is not a classic hotel, its suites provide plenty of privacy combined with an unobtrusive range of services like the breakfast delivery to your door in the morning. An indoor swimming pool with steam bath and Finnish sauna is available to all guests. In the spacious lounge, guests can serve themselves around the clock at the Honesty Bar and browse through a selection of books. As all around the Pergola, guests are also welcome to walk barefoot. Local products and wine are stored in the wine cellar, whose massive walls date back to the 16th century.
