Green Pearls welcomes two new members: the Locanda Mistral in the Maira Valley in the Italian Piedmont and the ROMANTIC Boutique Hotel & Spa in the Lithuanian city of Panevezys.
Relaxation and sport in unspoiled nature: Locanda Mistral
The Locanda Mistral is located on 1,400 meters in the small village Ponte Maira, at the end of the Maira Valley in Piedmont. The dale still is an insider tip for active vacationers wanting to explore the mountains in summer by hiking, climbing, and mountain biking and in winter with their snowshoes or touring skis. Some years ago, the owners Renato and Manuela Botte transformed two former farmhouses into a cozy hotel with 14 rooms in traditional style.
The Locanda Mistral is the perfect place for a vacation dedicated to sports and culinary delights. Owner Renato is a mountain guide for twenty years: He accompanies tours in the whole world – and the Maira Valley! Besides, participants benefit particularly from his comprehensive knowledge about the local flora, fauna, and history. Tired from the hike, Manuela provides the guests with her tasty and fresh Piedmontese and Occitan kitchen. She puts special focus on regional and high-quality ingredients which are partly sourced from the own organic garden.
Historical charm in Lithuania: ROMANTIC Boutique Hotel & Spa
The first Green Pearls partner hotel in Lithuania is situated in the city of Panevezys, the "town at the river Nevezis" in the north-east of Lithuania. In 2001 the owners of the ROMANTIC Boutique Hotel & Spa have bought a historical mill from the 19th century which they transformed with love to the detail to a sustainable boutique hotel. Whether a city trip or conference, desire for walks in the park or wellness – every guest will find something to his taste. Guests can lend bicycles or electric scooters free of charge at the hotel. In the evening the hotel restaurant Deja vu invites to enjoy modern, West-European culinary specialties.
The in-house ETNO SPA is unique in Lithuania offering traditional applications according to Baltic remedial methods, only regional and ecologically certified products are used. Besides, for the bath amber, loam, milk, and beer are used. In addition, an indoor swimming pool with jacuzzi, a steam bath, and a Swedish sauna awaits the guests.
