2nd consecutive holiday in Posada la Plaza and it didn’t disappoint. In fact it was even better with so much banter and laughter, such a great group.
This was the 2nd trip with Colletts to Corvara this year, the first for via ferratta and this one for cycling. Again it is difficult to fault the service provided. The accommodation in Chalet Tino was outstanding, all the reps were exceptional helpful and friendly and as ever, the dolomites did not disappoint. For cyclists, this area is a paradise on a par with any other alpine region. The 4 x passes of the Sella Ronda plus the Falzarego, Gaia, Valparola, Fedaia were all ridden. The scenery is jaw dropping. We had a couple of days riding with Ben, one of Colletts cycling guides who was great company and he and George provided lots of recommendations for the other days. Office hour each evening was again a great chance to share stories with fellow guests and the Colletts reps. I look forward to another Colletts trip in the near future
This year I have stayed in June/July at Haus Valentin then four days in Ehrwald at Hotel Sonnenspitz and in September at Hotel Hinterlager in Matrei. They were all excellent. Haus Valentin is the most homely and knowing Monika, Christina and Rheiner well helps and I love his cooking. Sonnenspitz is the grandest and probably best for the older and richer customer. Hotel Hinterlager is very stylish with a lot of thought going into making it special. eg The night time fairy story on my pillow, the saying of the day at our table with daily advice on different walks and the natural swimming pool. It all reflects the personality and tireless dedication of Katharina.
The choice of walks is certainly best from your Sud Tyrol bases, especially for those without a car.
The vital factor common to all three areas the very high quality of the Collett's staff. They obviously enjoy what they do and are always prepared to give time to people who must seem mostly elderly to them. They also set a very high standard of fitness an d knowledge of the area. Well done Phil!
Great accommodation. The team of guides were excellent. They provided details clearly and were very cooperative, pleasant and encouraging. Though only two of us were there for two days but they went with us on hikes and maintained the pace. Ride to the local train station was also very much appreciated!
My husband and I recently did the Northern Dolomites hut to hut self guided trip. We had no issues for any logistics during our vacation. The staff at Collett's was super responsive and well organized. We provided feedback on some “finer points” that we felt could be improved but they are minor and only icing on the cake...we would definitely consider another trip using Collett's!
