If you're looking for an authentic mountain retreat, Pension Angelo's a great choice. It's a family-run guest house just outside the centre of Corvara. It's location at the top of the hill means you get some great views. If you don't fancy the steep walk into town, hop on the free public bus to get to the centre (normally runs from mid June to 10 Sep) or the lifts that'll take you to the mountain trails. The décor here is a simple alpine style - it's a cosy place to come back to after a busy day and the staff are very friendly. The four star Sporthotel Panorama next door is the sister hotel and you can use some of their fantastic facilities.
If it's your first time in Corvara, we recommend joining one of the guided excursions that the staff run. It's a great way to get to know the area. If you get some time before dinner, head to the small wellness area to chill out in the steam room or sauna. If you fancy a swim, you can use the pool at the Sporthotel Panorama (payable locally).
