The summer sun

Up on the saddle

... feet on the pedals and off you go; you can access all the cycle routes for your mountain bike straight from our farm! Our tips? The Drava cycle path to Lienz is perfect for families, and the Stoneman Trail through the Dolomites is ideal for those seeking adventure. On the other hand, the spa park at Villabassa with its Kneipp path is just the ticket if you need a break.

Lace up your hiking boots

… follow directions for the “Balance” theme trail and prepare to be amazed. Want to know more about this route? Stop and enjoy the view from Mount Eggerberg, then continue hiking to Monguelfo; take the train back to Villabassa – if you want a break – and end your day with a pleasant twenty-minute walk back to the farm.

Children’s eyes light up with joy

The ski lifts take you up Mount Elmo, the Croda Rossa or Mount Baranci; explore wonderful worlds full of adventures for the whole family.

Winter magic

Sledging fun

You don’t have to go far to enjoy some sledging. As soon as there’s a new fall, head out into the fresh snow! What, no toboggan? No problem, we’ll rent you a toboggan or a saucer sled.

Classic cross-country skiing

... or do you prefer skating? How lucky, you’re spoiled for choice! The nearest cross-country trail is at Villabassa, just 2.5 km from the farm. There are other trails within easy reach: the Nordic Arena cross-country ski stadium in Dobbiaco, and sunny trails in the Anterselva and Casies valleys. 

Whizz down the slopes

… leaving behind hundreds of kilometres of other options! The 3 Cime Dolomiti ski area is just a 15-minute drive away, with 110 km of slopes and links to 5 different mountains. Or there’s the Plan de Corones ski area, with 119 kilometres of slopes, 5 black runs, and links to the famous Sellaronda ski circuit.

Escape the hustle and bustle of the city

… with a ski mountaineering trip and a snowshoe hike at Prato Piazza, on Mount Specie or on the Corno Fana.
