We stayed in Gran Baita late June/early July, just before the hay meadows were cut and the wild flowers were in full bloom. This holiday ticked every box. The hotel is wonderful, with courteous staff, and fabulous food. The indoor pool opens to an outdoor area, and I enjoyed the poolside steam room. Our room was spacious and comfortable, with a small balcony.The SPA is a hidden world of wonders. Try the salt therapy pool, or treat yourself to a massage with heady scented oils. We borrowed the hotel mountain bikes, and signed up for the historical walks and activities laid on by the local town tourist office. Try the 'easy' mountain bike trip for yourself. It starts with a beautiful if somewhat bumpy ride through the woods to a cable car which whisks you up to heady heights. Our guide asked if any of us were suffering from altitude sickness - I said I thought it was just my age. Any excuse for being last haha. Walking in the mountains was also delightful, with cattle on the slopes wearing collars with bells, and you may spot a marmot on the high slopes. For those who like a little night life the hotel laid on entertainment one evening, there were a couple of events at the town hall. I particularly enjoyed the Tyrolean night. Walking into Selva after dinner for a coffee or hot chocolate at Cafe Mozart is also recommended.
