Casa Alfredino offers self catering accommodation in the form of 3 apartments with lovely mountain and forest views, situated in the heart of the Dolomite Mountains in Italy. All 3 apartments offer 1- 2 separate bedrooms, modern bathroom with shower and living area including kitchen diner and comfortable lounge area with satellite TV and Wifi facilities.
Casa Alfredino is the perfect base whether you are planing mountain- based activity holiday or simply want to explore the sights of these spectacular mountains (a UNESCO world heritage site) which must be seen to be believed.
There is a ski bus stop across the road from the house enabling visitors to access the largest ski area in the world in only 10 minutes.
Choose to ski on the Marmolada glacier or simply catch the cable car to enjoy some of the best views in the area at the summit of 'The Queen of the Dolomites'. Alternatively just a few lifts/runs away is the resort of Arabba where you can ski the 'Sellaronda' -the most famous ski route of the Dolomites. For a truly outstanding day for more experienced skiers (suitable for intermediates) this loop takes you on a tour of the Sella Massif in 26km of piste runs over 4 mountain passes, through 4 Ladin valleys in 3 provinces. The Sellaronda can be completed either in a clockwise or counter clockwise direction- for variety! For more information please visit our website.
The Serrai (Gorge) di Sottoguda, only a 5 minute drive/ bus ride up the valley is probably the most famous iceclimbing venue in Italy outside of Colne, with many spectacular icefalls cascading down the walls of the steep- sided gorge, it's an amazing sight to behold even for those who don't wish to climb them!
