Unbelievable Stay in a 700 year old Castle!
It would be hard to describe how wonderful this property is, not to mention how exceptional the hosts truly are! As we have trekked across Europe for the last two weeks - our stay at Schloss Glopper was absolutely the highlight -- and that says a lot because we have stayed in some pretty terrific places. In addition to the advertised amenities, the hosts also treated us to over the top hospitality. The owners have lovingly restored this 700 year old property, adding modern amenities in the bathrooms and kitchens, while meticulously maintaining the historical charm of the property (our daughter has coined a new term for the decor - medieval chic!) . We were thrilled to be the first to use the newly restored chapel as our family enjoyed the most relaxing day on our entire trip. Our kids enjoyed the castle while we hiked to a neighboring mountain to explore the ruins of the original castle in Hohenems -Alt-Ems Castle, which has also been in the owner's family for hundreds of years. You could literally hike this area for weeks and never run out of new territory to explore. Our only word of caution is that is it a steep drive in (but certainly doable) and there are lots of stairs... uneven, the way you would expect in a 700 year old castle! Don't let either of these cautions dissuade you - you simply have to book this retreat! Hohenems is such a quaint town, and I should mention that you really should try the restaurant at the Palast Hohenems!
Our only regret is not booking this treasure for longer! It was truly amazing... we will be back!
