Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Fanes is one of the best hotels in the Val Badia area. It's sunny, elevated position means you get fantastic, panoramic views of the Dolomites. The nearest ski lift is 500 metres away and the hotel provides a free shuttle service throughout the day.

We love the warm and spacious rooms here. Most of them have wooden flooring and spectacular mountain views. There's a superb spa too with a 25 metre outdoor infinity pool and an open fireplace and heated waterbeds in the relaxation room. Meals are equally impressive and you won't be stuck for choice. You can look forward to five courses at dinner with local food being the star of the show. Speak to the sommelier for some good wine recommendations to go with it.

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

San Cassiano

San Cassiano is a delightful village on the magnificent Dolomiti Superski area, well positioned between La Villa and Cortina, and close to Armentarola, with its famous horse-drawn ski-lift! A stunning array of dramatic Dolomite peaks provides an unforgettable backdrop to the incredible 1,220km of varied skiing, which is easily accessible from the resort’s main Piz Sorega gondola. San Cassiano is popular with Italian and British skiers alike, so you will find a particularly good selection of gourmet restaurants on the mountain, as well as simpler, traditional pit-stops. Hug’s Bar and Da La Vedla provide some of the best après-ski in the village, with the Las Vegas Lodge on the mountain providing a lively atmosphere for a final stop-off on the last run home. Overall there is a great deal to discover and enjoy in this latest and very welcome addition to our Italian range of resorts.
