Holiday in the quiet, sun-drenched mountain village of Velturno

Our holiday apartments, which are open all year round, are the perfect starting point for a range of activities in the Valle Isarco and the mountains of the Dolomites.

The village of Velturno is known for its diverse vegetation, shaded chestnut groves, orchards, open pastures and meadows that give it a special character. The village’s approximately 3,000 chestnut trees are real landmarks of the community.

4 good reasons why Velturno is the ideal place for a holiday in South Tyrol:

For hikers:

At the gates of Velturno, there is a hiking area that stretches from the Valle Isarco/Eisack Valley vineyards to the 2,500m-high mountain peaks of the Val Sarentino/Sarntal Alps. You can expect breathtaking views of the Dolomite peaks and a welcome break at one of the cosy alpine huts. It’s a real paradise for holidaymakers who enjoy walking, hiking and climbing trails. Adrenaline seekers can become one with nature on high-alpine mountain bike tours. On hot summer days, you can immerse yourself in the refreshing water of the public outdoor swimming pool.
