The Dolomites rise in a phalanx of stone in the northeastern portion of the Italian Alps. Famed around the globe for their vistas of jagged rock and undulating alpine pasture, they’re a land that’s sure to enchant. And that’s without even mentioning the world-class ski resorts, the epic hiking routes, and the luxury chalets that can be found within.
Comprising 18 peaks that soar above 3,000 metres, plus the ice cap of the Marmolada Glacier, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Dolomites features some of Europe’s most beautiful mountain landscapes.
Start at the legendary Tre Cime di Lavaredo, a triple-spired massif you can walk the whole way around. Later, make your way to Seceda Ridge to step on what seems like the edge of the earth along a 2,500-metre-high precipice. Across the way is the imposing outline of Sasso Lungo, towering peaks of rock and stone that have been carved away by the ages.
Luxury chalets in the Dolomites are a gateway to all that and more. By summer, they’ll put you on the doorstep of hiking paths that weave and wind past bubbling highland streams to plateaus that burst with wildflowers. By winter, they offer ski-in, ski-out access to the slopes of the celebrated resorts of the Dolomiti Superski area, including Cortina, Arabba, and Kronplatz.
These mountain resorts centre around pretty towns showcasing charming alpine culture and architecture. Walk beneath onion-domed churches lofted over cobbled squares, taste delicious food following recipes handed down from generation to generation, and hear the folk music of village bands.
The region is steeped in history, too. Immerse yourself by hiking to the Great War trenches of Belluno or up to the medieval Chiesa di San Giacomo in Gardena.
Our carefully curated selection of luxury ski chalets in the Dolomites of Italy offer top facilities, from mountain-view hot tubs and private spas with indoor pools to cosy cinema rooms and fully-stocked bars. They’re the perfect option for all sorts of escapes, whether you’re after a romantic break to the Val Gardena, a ski trip to Cortina, or a bout of hiking and cycling through Italy’s most impressive peaks.
