Family holidays in the Val Pusteria – Dolomites

Holiday time is family time 

… and young and old always look forward to it: Together we leave no stone untouched and explore the Dolomites together. Way up high where the birds are singing, the sound of cows bells clearly ringing, the mountains call and off you go, in the summer sun or winter snow. In short: Enjoy time together!

FOUR tips for games, fun & family experiences

Out and about on the farm 
… a good mood guaranteed: watch the cows having their afternoon nap, give the goats a pat, play with the farm dog Maya and cuddle the cats.

Fun in the snow 
… right on our doorstep: rent a sledge and/or bobsleigh from us and whizz down the slope of the hotel’s own snow-covered meadow! What a great rush!

There is plenty of freedom to be a child 
… in the large garden with outdoor playground, on the panoramic terrace and in the hotel’s own meadows and forests. Ever built a den out of branches, pinecones and moss? No? Then it is time that you did!

Should it rain 
… there is fortunately also plenty to do and keep you entertained in our hotel: in our well-equipped playroom you will certainly not get bored. Air hockey and table football are the perfect way to have exciting matches, while painting together you can discover the odd hidden talent and then before you know it the sun is back again.
