If you're looking to explore the local eateries as well as the incredible 1200km+ Dolomites ski area, this residence is for you. It's just a few minute's walk to the resort centre where you'll find a foodies playground of small family-run cafés and restaurants.
The building is traditionally alpine with warm wood tones and plenty of comfortable furnishing to make for a great holiday. The large hot tub, steam room and sauna are a particular treat to rejuvenate tired muscles at the end of the day.
Each apartment is a nice size with under floor heating, large balconies and free Wi-Fi. You also have all the facilities to cook up your own Italian delights if you don't fancy venturing out in to town. Once finished, you can always head downstairs the residence's own bar and 'stube' where to enjoy a well-earned aperitif.

Set right at the heart of the stunning Dolomites mountains, Arabba provides some of the best skiing and accommodation in all of Europe. It's incredibly picturesque and provides easy access to 1220km of glorious piste. It's perfect for both intermediate and advanced levels of skiers and boarders, and you'll never have the chance to get bored due to the sheer number of pistes you'll have access to.
There's a fair amount on offer off mountain as well. There's a handful of Michelin-starred restaurants and extensive wine cantinas in the area to keep all the foodies happy. For low key nightlife with traditional Italian hospitality, this is the place. If you're looking for a relaxing ski holiday with Italian flair, you'll be happy in Arabba.
There's not as much on offer for those who aren't in it for the skiing and are hoping for some shopping - you'll just have to enjoy the sunshine and the espressos instead!
It's a very chilled out place. However, to mix it up a little bit, sign up for a helicopter ride up to the Dolomites' highest peak, or take a few relaxed spins around the outdoor skating rink. Otherwise, it's back to the hotel, most of which have spa facilities to keep things interesting.
