The owners of the newly crowned 4* superior Biohotel Hermitage, the Maffei family, like to treat everyone as guests in their own home. Consequently, the warmth of the hospitality, the attention to detail and overall comfort here, really is wonderful. And coupled with its secluded location and uninterrupted views of the Dolomites through vast glass windows, it is little wonder that guests return again and again.
Another reason could be the Stube Hermitage Restaurant with its Michelin star. Nicola Laera's individual style of cooking uses local herbs from the pastures and the woodlands. The quality and variety of the food is amazing and should definitely be tried one evening, especially with something from the extensive cellar. The day starts with a hearty breakfast which will set you up for your time on the slopes, and as all the food comes from the same kitchen as the Stube, you are sure to enjoy every meal.
The hotel is set slightly away from the village center, in a quiet and peaceful spot with a shuttle service to take guests to the slopes or into the village. Enzo, the driver, is incredibly helpful and kind and nothing is too much trouble. From the bottom station you have access to 150 km of slopes, serviced by 57 lift systems.
The Spa and pool also have magnificent views of the mountains, and offer a peaceful retreat after a day on the mountains. There are steam, sauna and therapy rooms and it is well equipped to offer a good range of treatments.
