Chalet Sotciastel

Badia, Dolomites, Italy
Sleeps 11 / 5 bedrooms


Authenticity, history and Ladin tradition meet the natural luxury of Chalet Sotciastel with exclusive rooms, rustic breakfast and private sauna.

Sotciastel: the most magnificent and historic farmhouse in Alta Badia has been brought back to life in 2020! When the first people settled here hundreds of years ago they built a home that would not only keep them safe, but also provide them with plenty of sunlight and breathtaking views of the entire valley. Now 400 years later, you can enjoy the same view as they did of the impressive Marmolada glacier and Gardenaccia massif and discover this magical place once again. The enchanting farmhouse of Sotciastel will provide you and your loved ones with an experience of a lifetime surrounded by history and utter bliss. The best combination.
Hildegard is determined to uphold the Ladin tradition alive within her house, and has therefore preserved and restored every single custom without any trouble. Every piece of design and furnishing of the entire house is touched with the historical style and background. The original furniture and paneling are harmonized with all-natural colors and materials. The traditions are not only upheld by the owner, but also the guests! The guests are also invited to participate in the community on the farm actively. Their day starts early in the morning where they are invited to feed the animals, followed by preparing a lovely breakfast. The owner places excellent value on homemade products such as jams, cakes, bacon, and cheese- all of which can be consumed by the guests. The whole atmosphere is cozy, loving and friendly. Their pursuit of traditions is respected at the highest level.

Traditional style meets luxurious interior. Uniquely sophisticated living comfort, thanks to the careful selection of high-quality natural materials.

The beauty that is Sotciastel can be rented as a chalet for a maximum of 11 people. Another benefit is that it is also possible to rent single rooms.

Interior and equipment of the chalet

An enormous hallway leads you past the checkroom and daytime WC into the living area. In the open kitchen, a delicious breakfast is prepared every morning while hot tea and scrumptious cake are served in the afternoon. For guests who have rented the whole house, the kitchen is, of course, always accessible. The original old parlor across the street has been restored with great attention to detail to its original state. What makes the bedroom warm and inviting are the fluffy pillows and curtains made of linen fabric in combination with an antique credenza and a vintage wedding chest. At Sotciastel, a purely heavenly brew of tea is served along with breakfast, lunch, as well as dinner, which you can always enjoy in this beautiful setting. In the small TV room next door, our guests can relax with their loved ones, drinking their hot cup of tie and watching TV while snuggling in the massive, cozy and comfortable sofa. Free Wi-Fi connection in the entire house. The veranda next to the kitchen is also a special place, which can be used as a small separate room for breakfast or for leisure activities and relaxing together. The view from here to the mountains and the valley below is magnificent in every season.
