Piste-side ski chalet in Corvara, the Alta Badia
Stunning views from a spectacular location,
attractive en suite bedrooms, excellent food over sociable dinners,
the outstanding local knowledge of hospitable and welcoming hosts
Chalet Angelo is in a magnificent piste-side location perched just above Corvara in a tranquil hamlet, yet just 10 or 15 minutes from the village by foot, 30 seconds by ski – or 2 minutes by car.
You can ski from the door down into Corvara and directly onto the Sella Ronda or take the Alara chairlift up onto the Pralongià Plateau where intermediate skiers will thrive. The Pralongià Plateau is a labyrinth of gentle pistes interspersed with quaint and hospitable mountain huts, each with sensational views and excellent food which is refreshingly cheaply priced. Certain runs on this plateau snake back to Chalet Angelo on their way down to Corvara, the largest and most vibrant resort in the Alta Badia and a superb launchpad for the many jewels of Dolomiti Superski.
The views from the chalet in winter are breathtaking. You have a bird’s eye view over the villages of Corvara and Colfosco right up to the Gardena Pass with the vast flanks of the Sella Massif to the left (south) and the equally impressive Puez-Odle Group to the right (north). The south eastern turret of the latter is Corvara’s signature peak and it dominates the village in a sensational way. Few properties in Corvara allow you to enjoy this spectacular panorama in a better way than Chalet Angelo.
Bedrooms here are comfortable and all have en suite bathrooms. Each afternoon (not Thursday) you can make use of the sauna and steam room to help rest weary muscles after a day in the mountains. Or you might simply relax in the chalet’s bar and sitting room with a cup of tea and a piece of cake, or something stronger from the bar.
We hold Office Hour in the bar at Chalet Angelo, every evening (not Thursday) between 6and 7pm. Here you can chat with our staff about your ski itineraries for the following day, pour over piste maps and enjoy a sociable drink in the company of like-minded people.
The atmosphere around the table is informal and it is easy to unwind: people with largely common interests (and inspired by a beautiful day in the mountains) talk and laugh over good food and drink until well after coffee has been served. Over the years we have regularly been overwhelmed by the heartwarming and friendly atmosphere that prevails in our chalets. Frankly, it is a delight to witness the friendships that are built on these chalet holidays. Goodbyes amongst guests and hosts are often quite emotional!
You can stay in Chalet Angelo on a halfboard basis with airport transfers from Venice Marco Polo or Venice Treviso Airports included. Our chalets either have a traditional bar or a casual honesty bar. Also, there is wifi available on request. Towels and bed linen are provided by us.
