La Dolce Vita sums up this hotel. Set in the pretty village of Madonna di Campiglio in the stunning Dolomites, the DV Chalet is a beautifully designed and furnished property, with wonderful Italian hospitality, and delicious food. The shuttle bus gets you on the slopes prontissimo, giving you instant access to the entire ski area from the Spinale lift just 300m away if you prefer to walk. And the village centre is a mere 400m away, so an easy stroll if you prefer to eat out in the evenings.
The DV Chalet only has 20 rooms and suites, allowing it to offer a level of service that is second to none. It is cosy and welcoming with décor in natural wood, warm fabrics and animal hides with a contemporary finish. The hotel has a very good reputation for its food, with a daily changing menu. Traditional cuisine from the Dolomite region, including delicious homemade breads and pasta, is mixed with fine international dishes.
The Panta Rei Spa is worth booking a treatment in. It specialises in thalassotherapy (the healing use of sea water), and has a herbal Turkish bath, ice waterfall and salt cave with water beds, an indoor pool and a hot tub.
