La Villa is a pretty village lying between two national parks that enjoys direct access to the Alta Badia ski area and the Sella Ronda Circuit. Located at the foot of the Gran Risa World Cup piste, La Villa is just a short drive from vibrant Corvara and our sister resort in the region: San Cassiano. You'll find a low-key and relaxed Italian atmosphere matched with stunning vistas and exceptional cuisine.
An incredibly beautiful and compact village complete with stunning mountain views makes La Villa. Being the bridge point between San Cassiano and Corvara means its location is central of the Alta Badia ski region. The road has a plethora of lively bars, restaurants and shops and being able to walk from one end to another in 15 minutes means everything is within arms reach.
The village of La Villa is a sister village to San Cassiano in the beautiful Alta Badia valley. They share the same skiing, accessed by separate gondola stations, and are linked together by gentle blues and reds. La Villa has much to offer for all levels of skier, with vast distances and lovely varied and interesting terrain for intermediates and advanced skiers, as well as gentle blue runs and nursery slopes ideally suited for beginner skiers. Take the Piz La Ila gondola from the village centre and you're transported right in to the heart of the Alta Badia ski region. From here you can ski gently rolling terrain over to San Cassiano and Armentarola, or across to Corvara and the entry point to the extensive Sella Ronda route for those looking for more of a challenge. Take on the technical challenge of the infamous World Cup slalom piste, the Gran Risa, or head across to the 'Hidden Valley' of Lagazuoi, one of the most memorable runs in the region surrounded by frozen waterfalls and soaring rock walls. For an off-piste challenge there is plenty to explore with a mountain guide, including the extensive skiing of Arabba and the Val Mezdi. For those looking to put some miles on the clock, the Sella Ronda, which can be skied in both directions gives you a wonderful introduction to the spectacular mountainscapes of the Dolomites, taking in the famous peaks.
