Hotel Oswald is one of Selva's most historic hotels. Once considered the best hotel in Dolomites, you can expect a grand place with elegant interiors. Rooms have a traditional, mountain style and the gourmet restaurant is a great place to unwind at the end of the day. They serve up local produce so you can try lots of regional dishes - don't miss the weekly Tyrolean theme night. 

The location of the hotel couldn't be better. It's in the centre of Selva so everything's within walking distance. The Ciampinoi gondola is only 350 metres from the door and there's a free shuttle to get you there in the morning. When you get back, try and get some time in the spa - there's nothing better than soothing tired legs in the whirlpool or steam room.

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.
