10 things to fall in Love with Val Gardena in Winter time

Hello my Dear,

how are you?? As you can see I’ m still travelling and today I want to give you some suggestions and show you some pictures of my amazing week in Val Gardena. I love, love, love this place!!

I hope you enjoy them and that one day you can fall in Love too with Grodental!!!




1. Skiing

Thanks of DolomitiSuperSki you can enjoy 1200 km of slopes with just one skipass.

You can’t miss Saslong ski word cup slope, the largest slope from Seceda to Ortisei with a stop at Val d’ Anna Restaurant, Cir slope at Dantercepies and Piz Sella area with the beautiful view of Sassolungo mountain.



2. The Dolomites

Dolomites are Unesco World Heritage since 2009. Even if you don’t ski you will feel the powerful energy of these incredible mountains. In particular in Val Gardena the view of Sassolungo and Sella Mountain is impressive. I am totally in Love.


 3. Having a walk or cross country skiing in Vallunga

I did it one morning when the weather was not so good for skiing and it was a very nice and meditative experience in contact with silence and nature. You can rent all the equipment in a little house nearby.


4.  Tasting traditional Food and Drinks

You must try typical food and drinks like Bombardino, Strudel and Canederli..:)



4. Aperitive and Food at Rifugio Comici

I suggest you to spend a nice time at Rifugio Comici with music, the best wines and champagne, and a great gourmet menu. Check the website for all their events.



5. Shopping time in Ortisei

Ortisei is the main village f the Valley and it’s beutiful with its wooden decorated and painted houses. If you like shopping as I think you will love the quality of the different shops.

This time I bought a nice red hat 🙂




After a long day of skiing it’s time to relax and I suggest you the Adler Spa Resort in the center of Ortisei and Hotel Gran Baita in Selva.



 7. Villa Frainela

If you like exotic teas and handmade food, you can’t miss a lunch at Villa Frainela. Try different cakes because are unique.

8. Gourmet Kitchen at SooChic Restaurant & Lounge Bar

This is the best place to be. I love to go there in the morning for a tea or a lunch at the Sun but also to spend a beautiful and tasty night with friends. The design furniture makes this place unique in the Valley.

  9. A night at Luis Keller

If you want to go out at night you have to go to Luis keller, one of the oldest Apres Ski in Selva with typical wood furniture. You have to try the little apple shots. Let’s have fun!!!


10. Driving at night to Passo Sella

This is my favourite place when I go to Selva.  In the night with the silence I love driving to Passo Sella to enjoy the view of Sassolungo and Sella.

For me It’ s a very strong sensation of Love and Peace.



My accomodation:

Residence la Selva

It was my sweet home during my staying and It’s perfect for skiing as it is nearby Saslong red slope.
