Traveling within the borders of your own country is the new normal in 2020. But now there is another trend to spot. Staying in so-called hometels (“home” + “hotels”) is strongly on the rise. These hometels combine the best of both types of accommodation: the designer holiday homes offer the comfort of a classic hotel, but thanks to stylish and above all individual furnishings they look like real homes instead of a 08/15 hotel room. This way guests can be at home and feel like real locals.
Lately I enjoyed taking pictures of a real nice example. The Haidlmadl in the Bavarian forest. It is a design refuge with Bed & Breakfast, right on the “Bohemian” border which is the gateway to the Šumava National Park. Outfitted with three beautifuly furnished holiday apartements surrounded by a magical garden and a warmly welcoming host. An oasis of peace and tranquillity in the middle of an intact nature, away from any large town.
What more can a traveller be looking for in Covid times?
