History & philosophy
An exclusive "island" of peace and absolute relaxation
The history of Villa Eden began in 1982, when Angelika's father, Karl Schmid, had the vision of transforming an elegant private villa in the wonderful setting of Merano into the first Italian "Beauty Farm". The subsequent participation of Henri Chenot in the project confirmed the success of the innovative concept.
Since 1993, Angelika has been carrying out the development of Villa Eden, transforming it into one of the most exclusive Retreat Hotels in the world. Presenting Villa Eden: with the extraordinary charm of a Small Luxury Hotels of the World, the privacy of just 29 suites, innovative culinary artistry, excellent wellness & beauty treatments as well as a medical team always available.
