The Experience

All around are the soaring, craggy Dolomites – feel soothed on arrival. Manfred and Sonja will be delighted to see you and eager to do all they can to please.

Though the building is young, it is a faithful reproduction of a 16th-century manor and blends in beautifully with the pretty village of Cortaccia (known as ‘Kurtatsch’ by the locals). Light roomy bedrooms, alpine-cosy with lots of pine have blissful views to vineyards, orchards and mountains; each has a loggia, a balcony or access to the garden.

This was Austria – the area turned Italian in 1919 – and the family restaurant opposite is a fascinating example of German Renaissance architecture. Gather there after a day hiking to enjoy the Italian and South Tyrolean dishes and a well-stocked bar.

Take a trip to Bolzano or Merano, sup your way around a wine tour, rent bikes, play golf – there are three courses nearby. Return to the sauna, steam room and lovely pool.

The Pomella family will spoil you in their cosy hotel not only with their delicious food and excellent wines but also with their insider knowledge of the area because it literally has everything; mountains, lakes, vineyards, castles, museums, bike trails and culture cities. And with the WinePass travel/discount card no need for the car either.

We stayed here in September, driving through France and Italy. This family run hotel was excellent. The rooms are spacious and very well appointed. Excellent shower with plenty of hot water. Excellent buffet breakfast, and inclusive terms give you a lovely 5 course dinner in the hotel. (You can opt in or out on a daily basis; there is a separate restaurant across the road if you want to eat a la carte.) Nothing is too much trouble for Sonia and Manfred, who made every effort to make our stay enjoyable. NB Mostly German is spoken in this part of Italy, but staff have decent English!

The neighbourhood

The village is as quiet and peaceful as you expect and the rarely spotted tourist doesn’t pop up too much. All essentials can be grabbed in the village alongside a pizza, haircut and a slice of history in the museum if you’re so inclined. Use your free Wine Pass - you get one when you arrive - and take a bus to Bolzano, Merano and Trento for the sights.

Expect good humour from Sonia and Manfred - they’re a jovial pair and it is infectious. Happiest talking to guests about the area, ask them where to find the best hikes, which Tyrolean swimming lake is perfect for laps and which spot is a paragliders heaven. They’ve lived here for years and still do upstairs, so they’re well placed to curate your ideal holiday.
