Nestled within the hills of the Alta Badia region, Chalet Sotciastel is a beautifully renovated farmhouse accommodating up to 11 guests who are looking to escape to a completely magical and natural setting for their luxury summer holiday in Italy. Offering stunning scenery of the surrounding Dolomites in summer as well as complete peace and tranquillity, the property still oozes the original historical charm. This unique building, situated above St. Leonard, dates back to 1296, encompassing history and elegance.
A spacious hallway gives a sense of the authentic feeling of the whole property, making you feel instantly welcomed. On the left, guests will find a spacious open-plan living area, where a comfortable sofa and a traditional log burner creates a cosy atmosphere where to relax or socialise with your group. Indulge on your evening delicacies around the large wooden table, or sit by the large windows and enjoy an apéritif on the small table and banquette seating area. For idyllic alfresco lunches, the terrace, and long table will provide the perfect spot.
Outside, there is ample space to enjoy the beautiful mountain sunshine. Surrounded by luscious meadows and rich evergreen forests, this setting is truly special for a summer alpine retreat in the Dolomites. We are sure any guest here, won't tire of the great views of the Marmolada glacier and Gardenaccia Massif, which Chalet Sotciastel benefits from, thanks to its elevated position.
Being on an active farm means that there is always something fun for families with children to do. The kids can enjoy having wide open grassy areas to run and play, and a visit to the cows on the farm would be essential for anyone who may not have experienced true country living previously. Surrounding the property, guests can pick their own berries or enjoy a horse trek.
At the end of a long day of hiking in the Dolomites, you can look forward to Chalet Sotciastel's charming relaxation area, which is found on the lower level of the property with exposed old stonework and wooden beams. The sauna will ease any weary legs and allow you to pamper yourself. Alternatively, immerse yourself in the bubbles of the outdoor hot tub or ask your dedicated concierge to arrange a spa treatment to ensure the ultimate relaxation.
The traditional and authentic design of the property is also recalled in the six bedrooms, all carefully decorated with Loden and linen fabrics - typical materials of the historical style and time of the original building. On the second floor, guests will find three en-suite double bedrooms, and a single bedroom which shares a 'Jack and Jill' en-suite with one of the doubles. Two of those privilege of spacious balconies, being ideal for an alfresco coffee in the morning while appreciating the beauty of the mountain views. The remaining two double bedrooms, including a stunning master bedroom, are located on the third floor.
Chalet Sotciastel blends together traditional and new style, making it a one-of-a kind property to fully experience an authentic Italian holiday in the heart of the Dolomites.
