La Villa holidays offer spectacular walking and cycling at the heart of the Dolomites.
Set at the foot of the Gardenazza and the Piz La Ila verdant plateau, La Villa borders two National Parks in the heart of the famous Dolomite Mountains, known for their stunning and unique scenery.
Holidays to La Villa offer walkers and activity seekers of all levels an abundance of pathways, with easy trails along the valley bottom and up on the plateau of Col Alt-Pralongià, and more challenging routes in the Puez-Odle Natural Park, easily accessible via the excellent lift links. The villages of Badia, Corvara, Colfosco and San Cassiano are within easy reach and the delightful market town of Brunico is a popular place to visit by local bus.
Learn farming in the traditional way with a local friendly farmer. Churn the milk to make your own butter or cheese and maybe even milk a cow! Merano and La Villa are in the heart of sunny South Tyrol, which is famous for its mild climate high in the Alps, its gardens, meadows and vineyards. The wide range of local farm produced delicacies make for a unique holiday experience.
