Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Continental is on a hill above Selva so it gets the best panoramic views. It couldn't be easier to get on the mountain each day with the Dantercepies gondola just outside. The centre of town is short, downhill ski away or a 15-minute walk. The nursery slopes and ski school meeting points are nearby, too.

The hotel's public areas are decorated in a traditional style with hints of modern touches. The bar is a lovely place to unwind by the fireplace and enjoy a few drinks, or you could just chill out in the wellness area. Rooms are comfy and each one comes with a balcony so you can carry on enjoying the 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 main 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 where the men's downhill event on Mount Ciampinoi takes place.
