Hotel La Stua 4* (Cavalese)
The Hotel la Stua lies in the very centre of Cavalese at the corner with the Piazza dei Francescani, right at the beginning of the village. Despite it’s centrality, the hotel is quiet and peaceful, a calm corner with a well equipped garden where you can enjoy the view on the tower of San Sebastiano and the Lagorai Group while being enlighted by candles made of pure wax. Enjoy delicate meat and venison until late… with superfine local Grappas.
Ask for the rooms with views to the Piazza and avoid the ones with rooms to the side of the building, so you have more light!
The restaurant is very nice, breakfast is very good, and the attention is great. There is a small spa downstairs with a sauna, steam bath, hot tub and a small area for relaxing with some lounge chairs. You can reserve a massage in advance as well. http://www.hotellastua.com/en/1/2853/hotel-la-stua.htm
