Gardening Team

We from the gardening team look after 85´000 m2 Paladina terrain.
Together with our two donkeys Biancaneve and Isaac who help us with the lawn mowing and our bees which are working hard to multiply our wonderfully smelling flowers.

Should you meet in somewhere in the park or garden, you may ask us if you could dig out a young palm tree shoot as a souvenir …?!

We look forward to meeting you!

We take care of different areas…

  • The swimming pool and whirlpool … to ensure that the water´s quality is always perfect
  • The playing barn and our donkeys
  • The palms, the parsimmone and the pomegranate trees as well as our olive trees and many Mediterranean plants and herbs
  • The reparation and maintenance of our entire infrastructure to ensure relaxing holidays
  • And much more …

Guests staying overnight do have access to our cafeteria 24hrs to serve themselves with cold and hot drinks, with snacks, pastries, home-made cakes, ice-cream etc.

When everybody else is sleeping, you may still enjoy a fine glass of wine or a bed time snack on our terrace under the open Mediterranean sky of Southern Switzerland!

In our dining hall a wonderful, healthy and varied buffet awaits you each morning for breakfast. For late risers we offer a smaller breakfast in our cafeteria on request.
