Chalet Verena, Corvara
A popular hosted chalet in the centre of Corvara
- Warm hospitality, fantastic views from a tranquil location, excellent food and good company
- Attractive en suite bedrooms, sociable dinners
- Rely on the local knowledge of our Ski hosts and organisers
Chalet Verena provides modern and comfortable accommodation with eleven delightful en suite double bedrooms. It is just yards from a wooden bridge that crosses the river to the ski lifts and a stone’s throw away from the village centre with its cafes, bars, shops, ice rink and more. Nestled spectacularly under the vast and dramatic walls of the Sella massif, Corvara is a beautiful alpine resort for skiers, snowshoers and winter walkers. Chalet Verena has a prime location just a few yards away from the village centre.
Centrally located in Corvara, Chalet Verena is 350 metres from the pistes and lifts and is also directly on the Sella Ronda. You can take the Col Alt 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 down to Corvara, the largest and most vibrant resort in the Alta Badia and a superb launchpad for the many jewels of Dolomiti Superski. Chalet Verena is suitable for Skiers, Snowshoers and Self Guided Winter Walking.

Chalet Verena – Corvara
Perfect Village Location
We run Chalet Verena ourselves, so you can be sure of the highest levels of hospitality in a home from home atmosphere. Each evening (except Thursdays) our chalet hosts serve an appetising 3 course dinner with wine. After dinner guests linger around the dining table, enjoying the company of like-minded people, or drift over to the comfortable lounge area to play a game or read a book.
Bedrooms here are large and comfortable and all have en suite bathrooms. Each of the beds are ‘Austrian Twins’ (two single beds in a double frame) and all have a pull out single bed perfect for a third person.
Evenings in Chalet Verena – Office Hour & Dinner
We hold Office Hour in the dining room at Chalet Verena, every evening (not Thursday) between 6 and 7pm. Here you can chat with our hosts about organised ski and snowshoeing itineraries for the following day, or pore over piste maps to create your own self guided itineraries… or simply enjoy a sociable drink in the company of other like-minded guests.
At dinner, 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 Verena on a halfboard basis with airport transfers from Venice Marco Polo or Venice Treviso Airports included (or book a transfer from Innsbruck at £45 return).

Guests staying at Chalet Verena can use the wellness facilities at Hotel Arkadia for €20 pp from 6pm – 9pm. The wellness suite includes a Jacuzzi, several different saunas and steam rooms and a relaxation rooms. Massages and other treatments are also available at an additional cost.
Customer Reviews & Testimonials
An exceptionally interesting and enjoyable holiday with the benefit of some individual skiing tuition as well. The Dolomites are incredibly beautiful and this multi resort tour is a great way to see and ski as much as possible.
I am giving my recent ski holiday with Collett's a 5 star review. As a solo traveller all the staff and guests at the resort made me feel very welcome and the ski groups were all very friendly.
The ski itineraries were well planned and knowing that I would spend the whole day in the company of others and being lead around the mountains by c (...)
Fantastic holiday and credit to Collett's. The team looking after us were all lovely. Friendly and efficient, fun and helpful.
we have already re-booked !
My only tiny tip would be to tell everyone to take something to drink/small snack on trips out if there is no break before lunch. We had a wonderful guided trip but we were all hungry an (...)
Hi, just a word to say how fantastic the boys in Arabba were last week. Cam, Sam, Giles and Adam were all great guys, great skiers and great company. To say they couldn't do enough for us would be an understatement. Five stars for the boys. Just a small point, we drove to Arabba, and turned up at the appointed meeting place, the El Tabia rest (...)
Fantastic! We were so spoilt. The team at Chalet Angelo were fantastic & I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Colletts. I hope to be back for a walking holiday in the summer!
Fourteen members of the Plymouth Ramblers just returned from staying in Badia and Corvara over a 2-week holiday. We went out for walking and snowshoeing and had a wonderful time. Everything that was arranged and prepared for us by Collett's was of the highest standard. Nothing was left to chance as Collett's and their Italy-based staff were t (...)
Colletts have a magical ability to recruit the most outstanding staff to man their catered chalets and carrying out their ski hosting duties. Always polite, good natured and nothing is too much trouble. Just awesome.
The young people looking after us at Haus Valentin were fantastic. Their kindness, people skills, consideration and knowledge of the area were all outstanding. We were very, very impressed with them. It's a small point really but tea and coffee facilities in the room would have been nice.
I recommend Colletts for a skiing holiday. Excellent service by staff, in the chalet and on the slopes. Badia Dolomites offers very extensive skiing in a beautiful mountain environment. Its standard of service raises the bar of ski chalet holidays.
A lovely brochure and the way you advertised appealed to us. WE like the small scale " family" run business and the areas .Also, your priorities, walking, flowers, natural beauty, ski, snow shoe walking.. all appeals to us. No unnecessary frills.
You choose your staff very well; all friendly, communicative, responsible, efficient useful sk (...)
