Summer bliss, winter magic and the charm of old traditions

Built with natural materials and designed to provide an exclusive holiday experience in the Italian Dolomites, our lodges feature all mod cons and some luxury extras, like a private sauna.

From panoramic hiking trails to spectacular ski slopes, the Dolomites are a natural paradise offering endless leisure opportunities all year round. We will be delighted to share some insider tips to help you discover the many treasures hidden all around our chalets.

Summer holidays in the Val Badia valley

Sports and leisure on the Dolomites

Immerse yourself in the fairy-tale atmosphere of a valley embraced by the world’s most beautiful mountains!
The Val Badia/Gadertal is a valley steeped in legend and plated with the golden charm of ancient history and traditions. Surrounded by mountains and woodland at 1,100 metres of altitude, in the heart of the valley, the village of San Martino in Badia retains a strong farming vocation along with its obvious touristic flair. The village is conveniently close to the Sellaronda circuit, making it an ideal starting point for trekking in the UNESCO World Heritage Dolomites as well as for skiing and ski touring in the Dolomiti Superski area.

Visiting our alpine farm

Unique experiences, traditional recipes and delicious home-made products

Our estate comprises an original alpine farm, located a short walk away from the Pradel Dolomites chalets, which is open for visits on demand. If you visit in the early evening, you will have the chance to see the milking and feeding of animals – a nice family experience! Children can have fun looking for the eggs produced by our forty hens, making friends with the piglets, donkeys and bunnies in our petting zoo, and of course playing in the play area on the grounds. Guests looking to zest up the experience with a palatable twist are welcome to taste the traditional Ladin recipes from our kitchen, like balotes, tutres and cajincí, as well as our home-made products like speck and sausages.

Ski holidays in the Dolomites

Alpine skiing, snowboard and more in the Dolomiti Superski area

If you stay at the Pradel chalets during the cold season, you will find yourself immersed in a winter paradise with the finest pistes of the Alta Badia valley and the Dolomiti Superski – the world's largest ski circuit – just a stone's throw from your doorstep. If you like skiing, snowboarding, sledding or winter trekking, this is the place to be... and the panorama is simply breath-taking!
The slopes of Alta Badia, which are part of the Dolomiti Superski circuit, attract throngs of visitors with two special highlights: the Sellaronda circular tour and the First World War ski tour, both negotiable either clockwise or anticlockwise. Expect cutting-edge lift facilities, groomed pistes, huts and restaurants serving traditional cuisine and lots of fun and adrenalin.
The Pradel chalets and the idyllic landscapes of San Martino in Badia are also the perfect setting to enjoy the pleasures of an Alpine Christmas. Curl up in front of the fireplace with a steaming mug of mulled wine, relish the tranquillity of a winter night in good company and soak up the magical atmosphere of the Christmas markets in San Vigilio/St. Vigil di Marebbe, Corvara, San Cassiano/St. Kassian, Brunico/Bruneck, Bressanone/Brixen or Bolzano/Bozen.
