Sport, nature and culture

Our residence is located at the foot of the Marmolada, in quiet surroundings where you can enjoy summer and winter holidays made of skiing in the Dolomiti Superski resort, trekking, every kind of sport activities, relaxation, a lot of nature, events and local handicrafts.

Staying at the Sol e Nef residence you will be able to reach quickly all the most important ski areas as well as countless places of cultural and historical interest.

Sottoguda is one of the most beautiful villages in Italy

 

In winter with or without skis

From the residence you can reach in a few minutes the ski runs of the Arabba/Marmolada ski area and dash through slopes and trails practicing the skiing discipline you prefer: downhill skiing, cross country skiing, ski carving, telemark skiing, snowboarding.

If you don’t want to use your car, the ski bus stops just in front of the Sol e Nef residence and takes you to the ski runs of the Marmolada and the Sella Group, included in the Dolomiti Superski resort. And from here you can explore the Sellaronda, the ski route around the Sella Group, or the First World War ski tour. And in the evening you can come back to the hamlet with the skis still at your feet!

If you don’t ski you can choose between snowshoe trails, horse-drawn sleigh rides, snowmobile trails, ice climbing, or ice skating on the Arabba floodlit ice rink, just a few kilometers from the residence.

 

Summer, a color explosion

In summer, from the residence you can quickly reach the starting points for your excursions. In fact this area features many simple and safe trekking, motor biking or mountain biking trails surrounded by a colorful and uncontaminated nature: Fedaia mountain pass, Malga Ciapela, “Serai” of Sottoguda.

Here you can practice many sports: mountaineering, sport fishing in the Pettorina stream, or trekking on the vie ferrate, like the Via Ferrata della Marmolada. The hamlet has also a football field and a tennis court.

 

Something to admire and to taste

This area is rich of natural and cultural attractions, like the “Serai” of Sottoguda, a fascinating natural canyon, about 2 km long, carved out of the rock and enclosed by cliff walls. This is a magic place full of stories and legends, like the one of king Ombro and his daughter Ombretta, turned into a rock by her stepmother.

Other places worth visiting are the many local churches and the First World War Museum in Serauta, rich in relics and stories from the First World War.

After the sport activities and the cultural visits, you can go shopping and have a traditional dinner: turtole, tortei de pom, simple recipes and genuine products.

Then you can finally rest in the warm and soft beds of the Sol e Nef residence.
