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.

Walking through the Val Gardena

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!
