What makes Lagació Hotel Mountain Residence views so perfect?

Our Lagació Hotel Mountain Residence is a jewel in the heart of San Cassiano, a small mountain village in the Dolomites. When looking from the balcony of our Suites you can see the Dolomites just in front of you. These imposing and unique mountains have the power to evoke a lot of emotions in you while observing them.

When (season, month, day, night) is this most perfect view best enjoyed?

Every time of the day has its own particularities. But when the day goes towards the end and the sun is just below the horizon you can see the “Enrosadira”. These are the moments when the marvellous Dolomites glow red and for a few minutes you can enjoy the spectacle of nature.

How should one experience Lagació Hotel Mountain Residence vistas in a truly memorable way?

The best way to experience the incredible views from our Lagació Hotel Mountain Residence is while looking through the window at sunrise directly from your comfortable king-sized bed, when a thousand colours light up the sky and the mountains.

Any particular room(s) or hotel division(s) you would like to highlight for its perfect views?

All the Suites have great views, thanks to the large panorama windows they are equipped with. However most of our guests say their favourite view is the panorama from Suite Ammonite and Suite Bellerophon on the 5th and 6th floor of our house.

The Dolomites region has been declared UNESCO World Heritage Site. Judging by the images, it is easy to understand why. Apart from its evident beauty, why is the Dolomites region so special?

This question goes very well along with our philosophy. As in creating the Lagació Hotel Mountain Residence, we have given first priority to values of the region we cherish most. Nature has been generous to us; it inspires us and offers a wealth of resources. The Ladin traditions: We are deeply committed to turning to our roots and are proud of our Ladin cultural heritage. The Dolomites, which take us to the mystical world of legends, rich in prehistoric finds.

Your spa seems the right place to relax after an exciting day in the slopes. What would you suggest as treatment to loosen up tight muscles?

It is right, after an adventurous day on the slopes you need some time to rest. This is the reason why we called our Spa with the Ladin name “La Palsa”, which means relaxation. The best way to unwind is by enjoying a hot herbal stamp massage or by passing some precious moments in our hay bath, where the natural perfumes relax body, mind and soul.

San Cassiano, where Lagació Hotel Mountain Residence is located, is one of the charming villages of Alta Badia. What visitors shouldn't miss in San Cassiano?

The small village of San Cassiano with 896 habitants is the most charming place in Alta Badia. When thinking of San Cassiano, the good selection of restaurants (including two Michelin starred restaurants) is the main thought. The cross-country center Alta Badia in Armentarola is fabulous and from there you can also start for snowshoeing tours. Also the nice delicacies and clothing shops are worth a stop after visiting the Ladin Museum.

What would be the best restaurants in the Dolomites (preferably with a view)?

As our area has a lot to offer when talking about delicious food, the Family Canins decided to create a B&B Hotel Residence, where the guests can enjoy breakfast in style in the beautiful breakfast lounges where we take pride in serving a broad range of home-made jams, all sorts of organic bread and unadulterated South Tyrolean cheeses and cold cuts as well as choice specialties from strictly controlled regional and organic sources. During the day people can have lunch directly on the slopes in the numerous mountain huts and at dinner time we make suggestions and our guests can choose between 3 Michelin Starred Restaurants, many Gourmet Restaurants, Traditional Farms serving local specialties or good Pizzerie.
