Located in one of Val di Fassa's most tranquil villages, Penia, the Hotel Villa Rosella offers a warm Italian welcome and easy access to the slopes.

Close to the lifts

Hotel Villa Rosella is just a five minute walk from the Alba Ciampac gondola which gives you access to skiing on the Colac mountain.

Accessing the Sellaronda circuit is easy too, with a bus stop just outside the hotel with a regular service into Canazei. From here you can hop on the Belvedere gondola and experience some of the most incredible Dolomite mountain views.

Penia is a small peaceful town with a couple of great local restaurants and cafes to try. If you are looking for more hustle and bustle, catch the bus into Canazei which has bars and shops a-plenty.

Italian dishes

Val di Fassa cuisine is the perfect mix of Austrian and Italian food. You can expect classic Italian pizza and pasta dishes with a Tyrolean twist. On Wednesdays the hotel hosts Tyrolean evening, where you can try some of the region's best dishes including a grappa tasting.

The local wine here is excellent too and is a great addition to your four course evening meal.

Relaxation

An Italian ski holiday wouldn't be complete without some pampering. The hotel has you covered with a sauna, Turkish bath, hot tub and sensory shower. Access to the spa is €15 per visit and includes slippers, bathrobes and towel.

Val di Fassa (Canazei, Campitello, Alba & Penia)

Situated in the heart of the Dolomiti Superski area you will find the vibrant area of Val di Fassa. The valley stretches 9km of which there are a number of incredible villages to choose as the location for your next Inghams holiday. Campitello, Canazei, Alba and Penia each offer their own unique allure and access to unparalleled mountain experiences.

Skiing and snowboarding in Val di Fassa

Skiers and boarders can take to the mountains and explore the vast 1220km of piste all under one lift pass. The local ski area is predominately a haven for intermediate snow sports fans and offers 200km of piste on your doorstep. Take to the Sellaronda circuit with easy access to the sun kissed Val Gardena area to the North or head East towards Arabba, the gateway to the Marmolada glacier.

Outside of skiing you can look forward to valley walks and cross-country trails.

Where to stay in Val di Fassa

Canazei

As one of the largest villages in the Fassa valley, you won't be short of accommodation to choose from in Canazei. Val di Fassa is famous for Italian hospitality. Delicious restaurants serving local, home-cooked cuisine are in abundance. You can expect a lively après ski scene in and around resort, plus plenty of traditional culture and history in the area. The location couldn't be more perfect as the village is situated just below a forest of snow-covered trees and above that is the towering peaks of the almighty Dolomites. In the centre of the village, the Belvedere gondola is the gateway to the famous Sella circuit.

The closest hamlet just down the road is Alba, sat at the foot of the Marmolada and Sella. Here you will find the Col dei Rossi cable car which links directly onto the Sellaronda, so very convenient for the diehard skier.

Slightly further along the valley is Penia, a small but stunning area which is a suntrap on those longed for bluebird days. Between the two areas is the Ciampac 10-seater cable car which at the top has some of the most spectacular views of the entire area. While this is not linked with the superski area, it is a quiet paradise for intermediate and advanced skiers with runs heading out towards the village of Pozza where you can access the quiet slopes of Rosengarten.

The last village to mention is nestled in the middle of the valley, Campitello, sitting to the west of Canazei, is perfect for those looking for a traditional and more relaxed location with direct access onto the mountain via the Col Rodella cable car.

Bars and restaurants in Val di Fassa

Canazei’s centre has shops, terrace cafes, and a unique indoor water park and spa centre, Dòlaondes. Everyone can enjoy the facilities here with six pools, one of which is outdoors and has breath-taking views of the surrounding mountains. You will also find a water slide, fitness area and bar serving food and drink.
