When you stay at the Sport Hotel Barisetti, you’ll understand why so many people go back year after year. It’s incredibly welcoming and you’re instantly made to feel at home. The location’s fantastic with some of the best mountain views in town. The main shopping centre of Cortina is 700 metres away and the Freccia nel Cielo cable car is just 50 metres from the hotel door. Jump on and spend the day on the Tofanes ski area, where the Ski World Cup usually takes place. You can pretty much ski back to the door. If you want to explore more ski areas, there’s a handy shuttle bus that’ll take you.
There’s plenty going on in the evenings in Cortina if you fancy venturing out. The walk will take about 15 minutes. We love spending time in the hotel’s own bar though, chatting about our day with the friendly staff and ordering another Aperol. If you get back in time, head for the sauna and steam bath to ease the ski legs before dinner.
Transfer time: approx. 3 hours from Innsbruck airport.
