Where we are
In the heart of the Eastern Dolomites in a fascinating border area which is reflected in the culture and appearance of the towns and villages and the languages – Italian, Ladin and German – spoken in them, we are based in and around the following towns. Your choice of town and hotel will depend on what you are looking for in a holiday and we will be more than happy to advise you.
Stylish and upmarket, Cortina’s elite reputation and uniquely panoramic position can make it more expensive than the other towns in the area but it has a huge range of hotels including everything from small family run establishments to top-end hotels. A great range of restaurants to suit all tastes and many shops, bars and cafés and a few nightclubs make Cortina a fun place to stay in season and its summer cable cars and chair lifts make getting up to high altitudes for its huge range of panoramic walks an easy proposition from mid-June to mid-September.
Auronzo di Cadore
Its peaceful, lakeside position, chairlift and fun bob makes Auronzo a perfect place for a family walking holiday. Its chairlift and proximity to the hamlet of Misurina and the world-famous Tre Cime mountains makes it a popular spot for walking tourism as does its considerable range of affordable, middle range hotels and restaurants and its attractive lake.
Pieve di Cadore
Titian’s birthplace, Pieve is a historic town with a pretty old centre and a couple of interesting museums. Relatively untouristy, it is rarely crowded and a great place for a quiet walking holiday with a few good hotels, restaurants and bars frequented mainly by local people and Italian tourists.
An attractive German speaking Tyrolean town beautifully positioned in the open, green Pusteria valley, San Candido is a busy walking destination in the summer with a wide range of hotels, restaurants, bars and shops of every sort as well as a chair lift in town and another in the village of Misurina which makes high altitude walking more accessible as well as a fun bob for children.
