When our friends asked us to go to a spa/wine resort for a lazy Sunday, we couldn’t resist. Who would? They picked us up early on Sunday morning and we headed to a town called Langenlois. It’s about an hour outside of Vienna and is home to the smaller of two properties of the LOISUM chain hotels in Austria. It was nice to get away and see the countryside of Austria. We’ve seen other towns and tourist attractions in Salzburg, Hallstatt and Linz, but haven’t quite ventured into the rural areas.
The hotel itself is small and modern. It has its own vineyard, a spa featuring Aveda products, and a heated pool. Since we didn’t book the spa in time, we lost out on the chance of getting treatments. We did have full access to the sauna, lounge and pool areas- which Hubs took advantage of. We had a leisurely brunch with our friends, took a nap, read, had afternoon coffee with cake, and met back with our friends for dinner. It was truly a lazy Sunday, spent with great company. I’d highly recommend taking a day (spa) trip there if you have the possibility.
