Hotel Pralong is a real gem. It's located opposite the slopes at the top of Selva with spectacular views over the mountains and forests. What sets it apart from others is its owners, the Denicolo family. Not only do they provide a high standard of service and create a warm and friendly atmosphere, they have a real passion for the mountains and skiing. One of the family has even competed in the Ski World Championships. Be sure to ask for their recommendations of the best slopes in the Dolomites.

Alpine style

The family have put a lot of effort into the attention to detail, design and decorations of the hotel. Nature plays a part in all of this, which can be seen throughout the property with candles surrounded by fur cones in the bar area, beautiful embroidered cushions in the dining room and flowers in reception.

The hotel offers a cosy retreat for your next Italian ski holiday - each of the rooms are furnished in a Tyrolean style with wood and cosy furnishings, plus they are equipped with everything needed for a comfortable week in the Dolomites including internet access and a TV. 

Relax and unwind

The centre of town is roughly 800 metres away but you can catch the local bus - the nearest bus stop is just a short walk from the hotel. The hotel benefits from being close to the slopes so you can easily get on and off the renowned Sellaronda ski circuit each day.  When you return for the day, you can relax in the small wellness area and enjoy the Finnish sauna and Turkish bath.

Each evening a warming four course meal is served in the cosy restaurant, with the menu featuring Ladin specialities. The bar area is the ideal spot to catch up with friends and family, have an aperitif before dinner or a nightcap before heading to bed - be sure to try the local grappa. 


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.
