San Cassiano, nestled at the foot of the majestic walls of the Conturines, La Varella, and Lagazuoi, at over fifteen hundred meters above sea level, is a village with the typical charm of mountain locations where nothing seems to disturb the atmosphere of peace, tranquility, well-being, and charm.
Strolls along the Armentarola valley floor, through the meadows of Störes, are enchanting. Equally wonderful are the routes along the Larici paths or those dedicated to meditation, such as the popular “Klaus and Dorothea von der Flühe,” which offer breathtaking and spectacular sunset views, with the Dolomites bathed in pink hues.
Among the highlights are the Sciarè-Armentarola Cross-Country Center, the “Foram” toboggan run at Piz Sorega, and the 7.2-kilometer descent from Lagazuoi, which concludes with skiers being towed by a pair of horses.
Corvara, located in the heart of Alta Badia, is considered a cradle of elite tourism at the foot of the Sassongher massif.
The village, situated at over 1550 meters above sea level, is nestled in a wide basin.
The landscape is truly magnificent, with the Marmolada and the Austrian peaks seeming to be within arm’s reach.
Over 130 kilometers of perfectly snowy slopes are always the ideal routes for skiing, snowshoeing, and winter walks.
On the red and blue slopes, skiing with family is a pleasure, while for the more experienced skiers, there are the more challenging ones in Vallon-Boè and Col Alt.
From Corvara, still with skis on, you can then immerse yourself in the enchantment of two historic winter excursions: the “Sellaronda” and the “Great War Ski Tour.”

Hotel Ciasa Salares
Respect for the environment and the structure, as well as attention to local resources, inspire the hotel’s design using precious local woods such as untreated spruce, Swiss stone pine, and larch.
La selezione dei tessuti prodotti in Valle, oltre che dall’amore per la propria terra, nasce dalla continuità con il passato; troviamo il rosso del fuoco del camino, il verde dei prati e il blu del cielo.
I “nonni Ilda e Paolo“ sono le colonne di questo hotel, dal nulla negli anni sessanta hanno costruito la loro piccola realtà ricettiva chiamandola “Ciasa Salares”.
“Salares” derives from Val Salares, where wooden containers containing salt for animals were placed. “Ciasa” in Ladino means “home” and refers to the warmth of family.
You can discover the great properties of salt and pepper in the Conturines Suite.
The Lavarella Suite is a journey into the scent, aroma, and coffee experience.
The Salares Suite is the new harmony of chocolate, to discover the “food of the gods.”
It’s called Coccun (“cork” in Ladin) and it immediately reveals its soul as a prestigious restaurant born in a cellar. And what a cellar it is, with 1900 labels, 24,000 bottles of wine from all over the world, and an annual turnover achieved through the continuous search for beauty and excellence.
Surrounded by the fabulous landscape of the Dolomites, Hotel Ciasa Salares offers a wellness center with a fitness room, indoor pool, and sun terrace.
A real discovery is vinotherapy, which is a treatment aimed at the health and well-being of the person through the use of specific cosmetic properties that detoxify and tone the skin, contained in grapes.
Historically, grape-based treatments were practiced by ancient Arab populations, ancient Romans, and in Greece.
The wonderful terrace overlooks the breathtaking landscape of Alta Badia.
The hotel, located in the heart of Corvara, offers a family-friendly atmosphere, warm and cozy rooms, a well-structured wellness center with the possibility to book massages and beauty treatments, a gym to stay in shape, high-quality cuisine, and excellent wines.
The use of wood and local fabrics with neutral colors make the rooms at Hotel Marmolada a welcoming place to spend your holidays in complete relaxation, feeling right at home.

Located in the center of Corvara with the stunning backdrop of the Dolomites, the Spa offers two spacious relaxation areas, a Finnish sauna, a bio-sauna, a Turkish bath, a calidarium (ancient Roman sauna), and an outdoor hot tub for multiple people.
Hotel La Perla
From the Hotel’s homopage: “The charm of La Perla is not in what it has, but in what it lacks. We don’t have a 5,000-square-meter spa. If we did, we would serve Ladino wines, and we wouldn’t even open Australian ones. We leave precious wood for pipes, and we’ve left marble in Carrara. There are no precious Indian woods in the rooms, and there’s no minibar. We embrace the Economy of the Common Good and don’t use glossy paper for our brochures”.
The Stüa de Michil is a small wooden Wunderkammer where objects fix themselves as if by enchantment in two 17th-century stuben, faithfully and skillfully reinstalled.
In the kitchen, under the guidance of chef Simone Cantafio, East and West come together in a profusion of colors, and within the span of two seasons, a Michelin star has returned to shine in Corvara.
Two menus are offered, both bearing a strong imprint dictated by Mother Nature. They are the result of evolving experiences and emotions that condense into a dimension suspended between perception and transformation.
In Stüa de Michil, food is an alphabet made of matter, nature, and memory that evolves into a language of taste in balance between beauty, goodness, and seduction.
The wellness center is in close connection with nature: its energy, aromas, and active principles are encompassed in all the treatments.
Whether they have a view of the Dolomites or shine with welcoming light, the rooms are in perfect balance between peace and serenity.
The rooms are partly furnished with unique pieces belonging to the Costa family, such as the collection of beer steins, ceramic cups, bed headboards, typewriters, paintings, clocks, vases, and sculptures.
Among the many trees that adorn the forests of the Dolomites, there is one that is very special. It is located in the hotel’s garden and hosts a little cabin where you can enjoy an aperitif with champagne, gourmet snacks, and a spectacular view of the mountains.
