What began in 1887 as a ‘thermal guesthouse’ for people passing through Castelrotto on the newly built road quickly developed into a renowned holiday destination. The guesthouse, was developed in 1903 into the then-fashionable villa style, and still combines a breath-taking location with the convenience of being near the centre of charming Castelrotto. It’s also a useful starting point for hikes in the Dolomites and Alpe di Siusi.
The traditional chalet-style building, wooden panels and flower planters on balconies and windowsills, has views over the town to the Dolomites. Both the Finnish sauna and the heated outdoor pool share the views, as does the open, sunny garden. Inside, all 28 bedrooms are bright, different and newly refurbished. They reflect the natural elements of the hotel’s woodland environment and boast impressive storage space. Decoration is attractive but minimal, inviting you to divert your gaze to the mountains.
