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
We've been to Corvara for about 20 years, but last year we made a mistake with booking again. So in December we had to find a place to stay in March. We walked passed by Verena and saw a nice young man and asked him whether there were 2 rooms available. We've seen the rooms and at home we made further enquiries and decided to book.
I enjo (...)
We enjoyed the safari so much, in spite of having snow and sometimes white out conditions for half of the week. Having to keep to our itinerary helped us to deal with these conditions better. The guides Diego and Petro were superb and managed to deal with closed lifts and a closed pass which meant one of our overnight stops had to be changed. (...)
We have just returned from a fabulous week's stay in Chalet Verena, Covara. All the Chalet hosts were very welcoming - nothing was too much trouble (a special mention here to Dan and Flee)! The food was excellent and plentiful - the wine flowed and the social atmosphere was relaxed and fun. We would definitely recommend a Collett's skiing hol (...)
Overall, we had a really wonderful holiday. Your staff are extremely personable and conscientious and able to relate to a wide range of guests who are sometimes idiosyncratic! Yours is a very well conceived and executed holiday concept, that really suites us! Thank you so much.
One thing forgot to mention - although some of the snow shoe gro (...)
We had skied with you before and also had a Walking holiday with you in Corvara which were both very good.
The service is fantastic and the guided skiing makes for great value.
It is good to see a company that has such a great relationship with it's staff, all the staff i talked to think Colletts is a good company to work for and feel w (...)
The staff were a delight to talk to whether to find out about the days activities or just general conversation. It seemed to offer the kind of holiday I wanted - the ability to dip in and out of different activities and mix with like minded people.
Back home from an excellent week skiing in Arabba with good friends. The Collett's staff are fantastic (Giles, Cam, Adam and Sam) and all great company at dinner time.
Looking at dates for a return trip next year.
Colletts are great to ski with.
We only had a short time available to us and we packed in 106 km of skiing in three days (double that if you add in the chairlifts and cable cars). The ski guide's knowledge of the area meant that we took the best routes. With expert guides you never have the post-lunch worry of "can we go further?" "will w (...)
