Ciasa Salares is a rare find and it's thanks to two extraordinary grandmothers that this beautiful boutique hotel in the Italian Dolomites is still family-run. Back in the 1930's Grandmother Emma ran cookery courses and Grandmother Teresa ran two hotels.
Their passion for hospitality, flavours and colours has been passed down through the generations. Now Stefan, his wife Wilm and their son Jan Clemens are the 4th generation to continue the family tradition taking over from parents Hilda and Paoli who built the hotel from scratch in the 1960s.
Alta Badia is skiers heaven during the winter with big blue skies contrasting against the glistening snow and a nature-lovers delight in the summer with plenty of activities in both seasons to choose from. The nearest ski lifts to the hotel are located just 100 metres away.
The design of the hotel has been inspired by local materials and artisans incorporating the indigenous woods including pine, larch, and fir.
Alta Badia is also known as 'the gourmet valley' due to its many food events throughout the year and gourmand dishes 'sciare
con gusto' from some of the best restaurants in the area are now available in the mountain huts on the slopes.
La Siriola restaurant is all about freshness and passion with an innovative food and aperitif menu. The chef suggests four or five courses but every dish can be ordered à la carte.
The grand menu is a total taste experience with eight courses and a visit to the magical kitchen of La Siriola. Then you'll have a visit to the Cheese Room, a miniature paradise for cheese lovers, followed by the famous Chocolate Room. This experience is an absolute must for gourmandises
. La Siriola is not open on Mondays.
Nicola Zanetti, the chef of Restaurant Salares, spent hours in the kitchen with his mother up to his elbows making pasta. He produces simple, mouth-watering dishes some of which have been handed down through generations.
Each product at breakfast and dinner, has been carefully selected for exceptional quality from the buffet of vegetables harvested from Grandma Hilde’s garden and freshly laid eggs to the lovingly prepared puddings. Breakfast from 07:30 to 10:30. Dinner from 19:15 to 21:30.
Alta Badia is known to be one of the best ski areas in the world with over 450 km of snow-covered slopes in the winter. With plenty of lifts, ski schools and a snowpark from freestylers it's a great place to come for all levels of skiers. Some members of your party may not ski and may prefer to soak up the breathtaking views from sun-kissed terraces snuggled under a cashmere blanket. Ice skating on the natural lakes or sledding down the slopes will keep children amused for hours.
Summer is awash with colours and the mountain meadows and scenery are the perfect backdrops for bikers and hikers.
The nearest ski lifts to the hotel are located just 100 metres away and shuttles run to the Lagazuoi cable car just in front of the hotel; on the way back jump onto a horse-drawn carriage.
There's a free shuttle service to San Cassiano (village and main lift) as well as the Capanna Alpina restaurant.
Beauty SPA Vives is a place where you can relax and regenerate at the end of an active day. All areas of the spa have been carefully designed with steel inox sculptures in the relaxation area, bespoke furniture and only pure paint pigments.
Beauty treatments include face and body therapies and the spa features an outdoor sauna, hot tub, steam room, sauna, infrared cabin and solarium. The indoor pool and fitness centre are part of the spa, ideal for those who prefer not to head to the slopes.
