Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Monte Sella has to be one of our favourite mountain hotels. It’s in such a beautiful setting in San Vigilio de Merebbe and the historic Art Deco building is stunning. Nothing beats the warm welcome from Norbert and Anna Cristiana, the owners - they’re all about giving personal service and go out of their way to make sure you have a great holiday. It’s just 50 metres from the lifts, so it’s perfect for walkers and cyclists wanting to get up onto the higher trails – the views alone are worth heading up for! Join one of the free guided walks in the Natural Park with Norbert or take a short stroll with Cristina to get to know the local area and the natural produce grown here. It's great to be shown around by people who know Plan de Corones so well - they'll be more than happy to make recommendations on where to head out for the day too.

In the new wing of the hotel there's a large spa with a wonderful indoor pool, with views across the gardens. In the pool there's a whirlpool, where you can lie and be massaged by bubbles after a tough day hiking. There's saunas and a steam room too. You could even treat yourself to the full works and book a massage or treatment (payable locally). Once you've pampered yourself you'll be ready for some food - head to the dining room for tasty culinary creations made using fresh locally sourced ingredients. The rooms are lovely and spacious, with fresh white sheets and wooden furnishings. They all have views of the mountains. If you like the idea of soaking up the views from your own balcony, you can upgrade to a deluxe or superior room.

Transfer time: approx. 3 hours by coach from Verona airport.

Plan de Corones

Summers in the Dolomites are special - take a trip to Plan de Corones, known as Kronplatz, to see for yourself. Our hotels are based in San Vigilio di Merebbe, a small village on the edge of the UNESCO World Heritage Fanes-Sennes-Prags National Park. It's full of well-marked walking and cycling trails and some pretty jaw dropping views. There's plenty of other outdoor activities to give a try too, you'll find everything from paragliding to zip lining. 

There is something for everyone here - it's perfect for a relaxing holiday were you can soak up nature. The lifts run in the summer, so you can reach the high peaks and their spectacular views even if you're not here to hike. Once you're in the mountains you're bound to stumble upon traditional refugio's where they serve some of the tastiest local Ladin and South Tyrolean cuisine. The region is famous for its food with influences from Italy, Austria and Switserland. Canederli - bread dumplings with local speck ham and cheese - are our favourite lunchtime snack in the mountains. 



The indoor pool has panoramic windows that opens out into the hotel's pretty gardens, it also has a whirlpool in the centre. There's sun loungers in the garden too if you fancy a relaxing day topping up your tan. Pool towels are available free of charge. 


The wellness centre is in the newer wing of the building. Here you'll find saunas, steam room, kneipp foot spa, relaxation areas and the lovely heated indoor pool mentioned above. These facilities are all included for you to use during your stay - so you'll have plenty of facilities to aid your relaxation. I you would like any massages or beauty treatments you can book and pay for these locally. 


There's loads to do in and around San Vigilio di Marebbe and here at the Hotel Monte Sella the owners offer a couple of free guided walks every week. Head out to discover the Natural Park with Norbert or take a short walk around the area with Cristina, where she'll show you the local herbs and wild flowers. It's really nice being shown around by true locals who know the region really well. They'll give you tips and ideas about where to spend your days walking or cycling in the Dolomites too.

Breakfast is served each morning in the dining room, where you'll find everything you could want from freshly baked bread to scrambled eggs and the coffee is excellent! With half board you'll have four course evening meals, with choices, served in the beautiful Art Deco dining room.

In the Hotel Monte Sella Restaurant the Chef de cuisine, Cristofoletto Andrea, cooks up a storm - worth working up an appetite for! The menu's based around natural and organic products that are in-season and home-grown where possible. 

They also have a fantastic wine cellar, so don't forget to ask the sommelier for recommendations. The climate and rich soil of the South Tryol are perfect for the cultivation of wine - so you'll find some lovely local varieties to choose from.
