Alpenloge is the story of Anja and Michael, who share their eternal dream of being aware of the good life, its impact on health, and passion for an environment that offers the comfort of living at a pace that we create ourselves.
They left city life and their jobs and dedicated themselves to a new project, which carries in its heart the message of a "slowdown" life, which they discovered themselves through their travels and want to offer it to others as well. For a weekend break, for a one-week break from the city, or for a longer detox & deep relaxation and enjoying the summer in the countryside and on the shores of Lake Constance next to the artistically and culturally inspired Bregenz.
"A boutique break in the countryside that inspires with its culinary story and head chef Mark Beastall, who has exchanged Michelin awarded restaurant in Great Britain to create a unique culinary story in the countryside with Anja and Michael." SLOWDOWN HOTELS
Slowdown value: Quiet place surrounded by meadows
Just 20 minutes from Lake Constance/Bodensee by Bregenz, the road winds its way up through rural meadows, and right next to the Austrian-German border lies the town of Scheffau. In an idyllic hamlet with typical German rural architecture, where the facades of the houses are covered with shingles and the windows are decorated with colored shutters. Right next to the church is a boutique new house built according to the traditional method and invites you to the world of "slowdown" - Alpenloge.
Slowdown value: It's all set up to calm you down

Colors, motifs, and patterns intertwine in such a way that you will feel their cosmopolitan story, which they weaved through their travels, where they looked for inspiration, how to transfer the good feelings of the places they enjoyed to their home environment and create a unique stay.

Slowdown value: Slowdown with an Artful culinary journey
Alpenloge culinary journey begins with a sketch of the dishes even before they are made. Head chef Mark Beastall loves art and beautiful things and in his unique way, he brings his inspirations to the plate. He learned the interweaving of flavors and ingredients in Michelin restaurants in Great Britain, and now he is creating a new story in the countryside.
His dishes are a feast for the eyes and the soul, as his creative mind thinks about the visual appearance of the food much in advance. He loves art and beautiful things so he gets inspired by everyday things and carefully sketches his dishes before they are made. We got a sneak peek at his "Mile-en-Doodle" journal, where he plans and puts down his recipes for gourmet dishes.
