Infectious joie de vivre

Infectious joie de vivre

A big heart. An infectious smile. Powerful joie de vivre. Your host uses her passion and dedication to ensure that your stay is unforgettable.

You will be welcomed with a warm smile.

As the daughter of the operators of the Quelle 5-star hotel, Sarah Steinmair has grown up in the family business. A passion for and dedication to the business were instilled in her at an early age. After completing her training in confectionery and pastry, she supported the Quelle kitchen team as Chef de Patisserie from 2006 to 2013. You can therefore particularly look forward to the daily sweet surprises in your chalet in Santa Maddalena. From 2013 to 2018, Sarah ran Uwald Alm. She was well known there for her warm demeanour, charm and radiant smile.
“Because it comes from my heart.”

Welcome. You are in good hands here.

I love where I’m from, the people and the strong connection we have with nature. I also fully enjoy the pleasant and beautiful aspects of life. Therefore, the beauty of our surroundings is also reflected in the furnishing of your chalet... paired with luxury and a private ambience. I really enjoy ensuring that you have a dream stay in the Gsies Valley and treating you to new surprises every day.
