Bella Vista Hotel

Truly a beautiful view

The journey to Trafoi from the Venosta/Vinschgau Valley is awe-inspiring in and of itself. Spectacular glaciers shimmer against a blue sky. You can almost reach out and touch the rocky panorama, an Alpine film to be enjoyed free of charge. Mother Nature is still the leading lady here in this lovely little corner of the earth, nestled between rugged mountain peaks. As soon as you arrive at the Bella Vista Hotel, you’ll want to relax and stay awhile – here, at the foot of Mount Ortler, the highest peak in South Tyrol.

Alpine luxury and comfortable elegance permeate the rooms of this Alpine boutique hotel in Trafoi. Lovingly renovated in a rustic style, the hotel follows the signs of the times – but steps gingerly along the way. The hoteliers are deeply rooted in South Tyrolean traditions at heart yet always remain open to new ideas. The Gustav Thöni family manages the Bella Vista Hotel in South Tyrol with a great deal of dedication and with warm hearts. This is the type of honest, genuine hospitality that one can feel in a palpable way.

A stone’s throw from the Hotel: hiking, biking and skiing

6) A stone’s throw from the Hotel: hiking, biking and skiing

In summer, the most beautiful hiking and cycling trails lead directly from the Bella Vista Hotel out into the stunning scenery around Mount Ortler. There is a comprehensive range of hiking options, as well as varied cycling trails for all levels of skill – all located right on the front doorstep.

In winter, all you have to do is go outside of the hotel and you’re right on the slopes: the Gustav Thöni Lift gives children and beginners a chance to practice their first turns and refine their technique. The family ski area at Trafoi, meanwhile, is situated just 200 meters away. Short on distance but long on fun – guaranteed!

Guided tours

Winter Hiking: weekly guided snowshoe tours into the wintry forest, running directly from the hotel

Alpine Wellness

8) Alpine Wellness

Nothing caps off a long hike or intense day of skiing better than a great massage. Relax in the sauna and enjoy herbal steam vaporization in the indoor or outdoor sauna, just next to the refreshing lake. Savor the Alpine landscape as you soak in the outdoor Jacuzzi, which is heated to 33 degrees Celsius; then cool off in the invigorating lake, fed by pure spring water.

Pristine nature: Stelvio National Park

9) Pristine nature: Stelvio National Park

Nature as far as the eye can see. Trafoi looks like it jumped right out of a nature book: beautiful scenery, sparkling streams, plunging waterfalls, shady forests, blissful tranquility, rolling Alpine meadows and precipitous rocks covered by eternal ice.

The park’s plant life will amaze you. The biodiversity of the flowers, plants and herbs is as spectacular as it is rare: those who look closely will find Turk's cap lilies, fragrant orchids, lady’s slipper orchids and wild tiger lilies as well as arnica, gentian and edelweiss.

In addition you’ll find wildlife that has nearly been lost: this is the natural habitat of deer, Roe deer, eagles, bearded vultures, ibex, chamois, foxes and hares. At Bella Vista, in fact, we always say a symbolic “Good Night” to the foxes and rabbits in front of the hotel.
