Each season has its charm, but spring in our country is really something special! While you can explore the last snowfields with skis, it’s already possible to do hiking, mountain biking and road cycling through the valleys.

Southtyrol land of mountains and lakes

Fantastic choice for road bike and Mountain bike. Our "Marica" is situated at 1100m between the vineyards in the valley and the peaks of the Dolomites. Today we went to Bolzano and the lake Caldaro. We enjoyed not only the panorama, but also our ice cream.

"We stayed in a very large room, with very spacious bathroom and separate toilet. The owners are very welcoming and helpful in giving tips for our snowshoe hiking (the area is great for winter and snowshoe hiking). The breakfast was excellent and the dinners were delicious, every course was of a very high quality. We have stayed in many Vitalpina hotels (all very good) but this one stands out for service, hospitality, atmosphere and delicious food!"
