A chic mountain village with numerous leisure activities

Ortisei, the main town in Val Gardena, delights guests with a wide range of sports, gastronomy, art and culture.


Directly from the Villa Stella you can go on various walks. The Val d’Anna, for example, is perfect for an easy hike and if you would like to go a little longer, you can continue through the forest to St. Jacob's Church.
The pleasant Luis Trenker promenade, which starts at the parish church, leads to S. Cristina and Selva Gardena and the “Post Trail” takes you all the way to sunny Laion. Enjoy a magnificent view on all paths!


A variety of art, music and cultural events take place throughout the year in the lively, picturesque centre of Ortisei. The beautiful pedestrian zone with its many shops and boutiques, cosy cafes and first-class restaurants is less than 5 minutes' walk from Villa Stella and is the perfect excuse for a leisurely stroll.


There are numerous shops awaiting you in Ortisei’s pedestrian zone - perfect for a day of window-shopping. From sporting goods, shoes and designer fashion to local quality handicrafts, and from agricultural products to regional delicacies, you’ll find everything your heart could possibly desire. The wood carvings, which are a centuries-old tradition in Val Gardena, are particularly popular.


Ortisei also has a lot to offer for art and culture lovers. Particularly worth seeing is the Gherdëina Museum or the Art52 permanent exhibition of Val Gardena handicrafts in the convention centre. Furthermore, there are various events and traditional parades that provide an insight into the culture and customs of the valley. And during Advent, the traditional Christmas market fills the pedestrian zone with an enchanting Christmas atmosphere.
