Driving through the Fedaia Pass you will reach the Marmolada,the famous glacier also known as “The Queen of the Dolomites”.During the First World War on the Marmolada there was the battle front between the Austro -Hungarian Empire and the Kingdom of Italy.It is now the preferred destination for mountaineering.
Feeling at home....Val de Costa is a little, charming garni’with only 9 rooms!
They are all comfortable but different, with details and materials which have been selected and carefully combined in a refined way.....some of them are romantic!
“.....a very long time ago there lived, East of Canazei, in a small lake surrounded by Mount Vernel…one would often see gnomes climbing on the banks or swimming in the lake…
...but every once in awhile a young lady, dressed in white would climb onto the old boat and would go around rowing along the lake...she would say that she was the sun’s daughter, that she really loved the white lake…”
We dedicated our lovely wellness area to “Elba”the sun’s daughter in the “Dolomites Legend”. With sauna, turkish bath, jacuzzi/whirlpools, kneipp, tropical showers and a tea corner...it provides just the perfect ambience for relaxing and revitalizing!
During the Summer season the choice of outdoor activities in Val di Fassa is so wide that you have only to choose!
From easy and relaxed walking in the valley,alongside the river Avisio or through the woods, to more difficult paths,high altitude hiking and via ferrata…..maybe stopping along the way in one of the many mountain hut refuges for a tasty and traditional alpine meal!
