NORTH ITALY


The world has long since been fond of Italy as a holiday destination, and for good reason. Few other countries can live up to the reputably enjoyable experience of Italian culture, whether it’s the delicious food, serene Mediterranean views, or urban landscapes that are infinitely rich in art, literature, and history. On that note, we’ve researched and catalogued the best mountainous retreats to help you relax to the fullest in Italy’s astounding natural scenes and make the most of your time off work.

1) Alpin Panorama Hotel Hubertus 


First on the list is family-run and pet-friendly resort Alpin Panorama Hotel Hubertus. Comfortably situated in Olang opposite the sublime Dolomite Mountain range, it becomes clear why this hotel is described as “close to heaven”. Featuring a spa, sauna, gym, its own kitchen, and an impressive total of 5 heated swimming pools, with one floating above the entrance, this destination is nothing short of luxury.


Another winning feature of Hotel Hubertus is its seasonal flexibility; whether you desire a snowy retreat into the refreshing air of Italy’s winter or a summery escape to the sun-kissed Dolomite terrain, this hotel can make both of your dreams come true. Activities can vary depending on the season, with the winter months being predominantly occupied with ski school and winter trips to nature parks, whilst summer terms consist of e-bike tours, ziplining, farm visits, and rafting. With stays ranging in price from 500 to 600 euros a night, Hubertus’s elaborate itineraries, dreamy mountain views, and minimalist cosy-cabin ambiance more than make up for its hefty price tag.
