Villa Honegg – A Stunning Boutique Hotel In The Swiss Alps

Villa Honegg is a special hotel with a rich story. It was originally constructed in 1905 by Emil Durrer-Traxler who managed to build his own hotel without even using an architect. It opened in 1906 and back then it had 72 beds which guests could rent for weeks at a time. It had tennis, boules, croquet and billiards. In 1997 the hotel was sold and then in 2007 it got a new owner once again. After years of renovations, in 2011, the hotel opened its doors once again.
