    Autumn Escape at The Capra

    Autumn Escape at The Capra

    Today we’re heading over to Saas Fee which is known as the Pearl of The Alps, to join Florian Leven who is the General Manager of The Capra Hotel.
    The Capra is a luxury boutique wellness hotel which combines five star luxury with the warm cosiness of an alpine swiss chalet.  A favourite with ski connoisseurs every winter, Saas Fee is known as one of the most charming and beautiful regions in the Swiss Alps and has the advantage of being a perfect low season escape during the fall months of September through November when the plethoroa of 4,000 metre peaks surrounding the resort, explode with colour as the browns, reds, and yellows of the autumn appear.
    Join us as we hear from Florian, why The Capra makes a perfect low season, luxury break.
