Hotel Portavescovo

  • The Dolomites Ski Area, Italy, Arabba

Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

The Hotel Portavescovo is a great choice if you're looking for easy access to the slopes. It's right in the middle of Arabba, close to the ski lifts and village centre. The Burz chairlift is only a few minutes' walk away and you can ski right back to the hotel's ski room.

The wellness area has all you need with a small pool, sauna, whirlpool and a few bits of gym kit. You can also book and pay for massage treatments locally, if you're looking to relax and limber up after long days out on the mountain. 

Food in the restaurant is good with plenty to enjoy for both breakfast and dinner. There are two bars to choose from too. We love the live music and entertainment in the piano bar each evening, but the smaller Stube bar is also great. It's a bit more lively and serves a good selection of drinks. The reception, bars and other areas have a traditional alpine style and are bright, spacious and comfortable.

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

Arabba

Ski Holidays in Arabba

Of the resorts that make up the celebrated Sellaronda circuit, Arabba has some of the most interesting slopes, and is a real skiers’ holiday base. It boasts excellent, challenging pistes, and the stunning slopes of the mighty Marmolada glacier are within easy reach. The highly recommended Hidden Valley is close by too. Part of the spectacular Dolomiti Superski area, the modern lift system ensures Arabba links easily to the Sella Ronda, with Canazei in the Val di Fassa to the West, and Corvara in the sunny Alta Badia ski area to the North. This compact, friendly village has a natural ice skating rink and a small selection of shops, bars, restaurants and pizzerias. Après-ski is low key and relaxed, the skiing anything but! The fast 'Ornella' run down to Pescoi is one of the big thrills for local skiers – and one of the biggest local challenges.
