Truly an amazing experience for me and my family in this hotel in the Ridanna valley of Italy's South Tyrol. I spent one week with a group of 8 eight people and we all had an incredible experience. The hotel is in one of the northernmost valleys of Italy's Alto Adige, just below Austria. It is a solitary location, but the beauty of the valley and the many activities will leave you with very little time.
The rooms are excellent, we noticed that our room was in a newer part of the hotel with some additional amenities such as rolling shutters and a bigger bathroom, but we were able to see 2 other rooms from our group and they were just as excellent.
The hotel provides half board, with an all-encompassing breakfast buffet and amazing gourmet dinners with a selection of main course you will choose in the morning.
The fitness, spa and pool facilities are in great shape and can be used with a very wide program of free activities. Every day hikes are organized by the hotel, they can be pretty difficult, so be ready for good physical exercise.
Do not miss their organized Tuesday's excursion to their mountain refuge, where they will prepare free grilled food after a 2 hour walk in a magnificent environment. We did have a minor problem with this excursion since we lost our way and the guide gave us wrong direction, but we talked to the hotel people and they are going to make maps in the future for slower hikers.
Overall one of the best vacation we have ever had, truly a fantastic family operation in this hotel, where each of the 8 children of the owner Paula helps in creating an unforgettable experience. Would return in a heartbeat!
