 The Dolomites are considered by many Italy’s best kept secret and a true paradise for outdoors lovers

The French Architect le Corbusier described them as 'the most beautiful natural architecture in the World'. Since 2009 they have been added to the Unesco Heritage

list recognized as one of the most imposing mountain landscapes on the planet: here you can enjoy a general well-being feeling of body and mind. Relax yourself while taking in the breathtaking views of peaks and valleys, breathe in the crystal clear alpine air, bask in the warm sunshine next to turquoise lakes at the foot of inspiring mountains.
