Discounts for children during August at our hosted chalets
in the Dolomites
Unforgettable, affordable and happy family walking holidays in the mountains
Lots to see and do for active and not-so-active families
August is a fantastic month to visit the Dolomites and we are used to hosting families during August. The weather is generally excellent without being too hot. A high season vibrancy prevails and the area has a certain ‘buzz’ characterised by festivals, outdoor concerts, open-air markets and various folkloric events. It is perfect for families, whether they seek all-out activity or are less active and just want to enjoy days out in a magical place. Collett’s has always offered reductions for children staying in our hosted chalets during August and you can see details of these below.
The mountains can be ideal for a family holiday and we feel this is especially true of the Dolomites. The atmosphere in our resorts is vibrant yet relaxing. For example, in Corvara the main street is closed in the late afternoon for ‘passeggiata.’ Everyone takes to the centre of the village just to wander and enjoy each other’s company, maybe stopping on the terrace of a cafe for a drink. It is normal to see families of various nationalities enjoying this Italian tradition after a day out in the mountains.
With Collett’s, families can simply choose day to day how to spend their time. You might stay in the village and soak up the colourful atmosphere; or you might stroll to one of many leisure activities that your children will love. Ice skating, high ropes, tennis, outdoor swimming, the climbing wall, archery, trampolining, an adventure animal park and other play areas (including some delightful meadows) are all within walking distance of the village centre. Families are welcome on our organised walks and watercolour strolls, which are free of charge and optional.
We can also help you partake in Via Ferrata, sport climbing, mountain bike rides, horse riding, tandem paragliding, whitewater rafting, canyoning and more. Some of these pursuits are also within easy walking distance of our chalets in Corvara, whilst others require you to drive. If you choose to bring a car, you can also take short drives to many places of interest, such as Cortina (Pearl of the Dolomites) and Bolzano (home of the Iceman). These are magnificent mountain journeys, which will even captivate the kids.
On our holidays in the Dolomites, we (Tom & Dee Collett) regularly just take our children (10, 8 and 6) on ascents up the mountains in the gondolas, chairlifts or cable cars. That alone is enough of an adventure. They seem so inspired by their surroundings and talk endlessly about this and that with a certain excitement. At the top we potter about or go for a walk. It’s easy to find somewhere idyllic to have a picnic. Or we find a rifugio, some of which have well-equipped play areas laid out in high season. Often the rifugio owner’s goats, sheep or cattle are grazing nearby. These days are easy and cheap. I honestly think the staggering beauty of the mountains makes a really positive impact on the children and they seem to remember aspects of these simple days out for a very long time.
Below you can see the discounts that are available to you when you travel with children under the age of 18. Families thrive in our hosted chalets and it is a pleasure to see the children of like-minded families starting a holiday as strangers and ending it as good friends.
