Boutique hotel Weisses Kreuz & Mansion zum Löwen is a design and Spa hotel in Burgeis (Burgusio), situated in the Venosta Valley (Vinschgau), South Tyrol, Italy.

The Ancestral Patron

An architectural smörgåsbord of modern design and history, the boutique hotels Weisses Kreuz and sibling Mansion zum Löwen span the centuries being at home at the heart of the ancient commune of Burgeis (Burgusio). With parts dating back to 13th Century and a family tree of pedlars on this spot back to 1871 – no wonder then, that sweet heritage anchors within these renovated walls. Timbers of every ilk sweep through the three distinctive faces of the Weisses Kreuz Hotel with the oldest wing being in the Mansion zum Löwen. Walnut, Birch and smoked Oak host the thick bucolic walls and capture the dna of former farmhouse barns, resplendent Renaissance home to the Bishop and lodgings for the merchant traders heading along the Romanesque Via Claudia Augusta. The trio of interiors within each building speaks of their provenance: contemporary design flourishes permeating the aged heritage quarters, modern crisp accents fuse a palette of traditional materials and layered textiles usher smooth, subtle accents of easy luxury. Peeled back history slips seamlessly into the era of the 21st century with confidence. Freestanding bathtubs underneath twisted rafters or soak against walls dating back to the 13th Century. Spoilt for choice connoisseurs of interior design will face the quandary – just which house will be your ‘home” in South Tyrol.
