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.
