The family run Hotel Somont benefits from having a great location, snap on your skis and cruise down the short blue run into Selva which gives you access to the wider Dolomites Ski Area, alternatively it is just a 300 metre walk to the centre where you can find a range of shops, bars and cafes.

The hotel also benefits from having a lovely spa area with an indoor pool and range of saunas.

Homely hotel

Loving run by the Rudiferia family, you'll be sure to receive a warm welcome - be sure to ask the team their recommendations of the best places to ski and have lunch on the slopes. Each room in the Somont is unique, furnished in a modern Alpine style with homely touches and cosy decor throughout.

Many of the rooms feature a balcony with a mountain view, so you can enjoy fabulous views of the Sassolungo and the nearby slopes. 

The food is something to look forward to, too. Fuel up for a day on the mountain at the varied breakfast buffet, and enjoy a delicious evening meal when you return. Each evening you can enjoy a three-course menu featuring fresh ingredients from the South Tyrol. To go with your meal, enjoy a bottle of local wine - the staff will be happy to make recommendations.

Ski in, ski out

The charming hotel benefits from having a piste side location, start your day by heading down the short Freina piste down into the center of Selva and take your pick between heading up the Costabella chairlift for access to Alta Badia including Covara & Colfosco, and La Villa and or head up the Ciampinoi gondola for access to Ortisei, Alpe d'Suisi and Val di Fassa.

You are also just a short walk from the center of Selva Val Gardena, where you can find plenty of lively bars, a range of shops and the ice rink. 

Soothing spa and relaxation

After a day of alpine adventures, return back to the hotel and enjoy a moment of peace in the spa area. Featuring an indoor pool heated to a lovely 31 degrees, a jacuzzi, and a variety of different saunas - relax in the Finnish sauna, soothe any aches in the infrared sauna or unwind in the Turkish steam bath. There is also a range of relaxation areas throughout the wellness area too. 

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.
