San Luis Retreat

Looking for a special place to unwind, disconnect and immerse yourself in nature?  This super stylish, tranquil mountain retreat surrounded by swaying forests and majestic peaks in South Tyrol, Italy, is for you. The San Luis Retreat is composed of several wooden chalets and treehouses set around a glacier mint-clear lake. All have terraces, large windows and most chalets have their own hot tubs and saunas. Some chalets teeter on the edge of the lake, others have views of the forest and mountains, while the treehouses poke up through the branches. Wood, natural fabrics and stone abound inside and there are crackling log fires and lots of space for relaxing. The main attraction however, is  the double height, barn-style pool area with floor-to-ceiling windows decked out with wood, stone and roaring fires.

MIDNIGHT SCOOP

Designed by an aerospace engineer, the ingenious Midnight Scoop is a clever solution to an annoying problem - scooping rock hard ice cream. The idea comes from the simple realization that a scoop should function like a shovel, with a more effective pushing motion powered by the user´s arm and chest muscles, instead of the weaker ones in your wrist. Hot-forged from solid aerospace grade aluminum the elegant utensil features both an ergonomic handle and pointed blade,...
