Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Aaritz has an unbeatable location right in the centre of Selva directly opposite the Ciampinoi gondola. We love the elegance of this hotel - a grand staircase leads down to the lounge with a log-burning fireplace and comfy sofas. The rooms are beautifully decorated and they all come with a balcony and views over the valley or the village. You'll get all your home comforts too with bathrobes, slippers and free toiletries.

If you want to take relaxation to the next level, we recommend a trip to the hotel's wellness area. It's got a lovely pool, sauna and Turkish bath. We love the relaxation area where you can sit back and enjoy the mountain views.

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

Selva

Set in the Südtirol’s charming Gardena valley, Selva is a gateway to the famous Sellaronda skiing circuit, where you can ski around the gigantic limestone monoliths of the Gruppo Sella. This delightful and not particularly challenging 25 mile tour can be achieved fairly easily in a day. Selva, part of Dolomiti Superski, the largest lift system in Europe, combines the best of Italian and South Tyrolean traditions for a unique ski holiday experience. It offers unbeatable quantity and variety of skiing right on its doorstep, a paradise for dedicated skiers of all levels. The picturesque old town of Ortisei, the principal community and cultural centre of Val Gardena, with its own small ski area, is both chic and traditional, with a picturesque town centre. Ortisei links easily with Selva’s pistes whilst its local Alpe di Siusi ski area is also well-known for its cross-country trails and a thrilling six kilometre toboggan run. Val Gardena is the venue for one of the early World Cup meetings each season. The Saslong downhill run to Santa Cristina - with its famous "camel bumps" - is the scene of the men's downhill on Mount Ciampinoi.
