About Cortina

Cortina d'Ampezzo is like Sophia Loren: gorgeous, glamorous and peaky. Icy, beautiful and framed by the magnificent alps, this ski resort is more about the fashionable aprés-ski than the skiing itself.

If you're in love with Cortina and don't need convincing go direct to our guru's list of the best places to stay in Cortina. If not here are some of her charms, and some of the best places to stay in Cortina to enjoy them!

Cortina in Ski Season

With her vast nursery slopes and long cruising runs, Cortina is an excellent ski resort for beginners, so don't worry about feeling shy on the slopes! Just make sure your ski gear is this season. Cortina is known for having a relaxed attitude to skiing, but restaurants and bars are taken very seriously.

Over the last decade the lift system has been upgraded, so skiers looking for more of a challenge are now easily linked with the rest of the Dolomiti Superski area.

  • The Grand Hotel Savoia is one of the best places to stay in Cortina for traditional luxury. She's a sizeable old dame, with 130 rooms and eight suites, and all the mod cons you'd expect, as well as comfortable, and desirable, public areas. She also has a kid's club and a state of the art spa - so you can look after your body to ski another day. And only 100ms from the pedestrianised shopping area she's one of the best places to stay in Cortina if you want to be at the heart of things.
  • For Cortina with ALL the trimmings stay at the Rosa Alpina. Its two Michelin starred restaurant means it's one of the best places to stay in Cortina for foodies. The chalet style building is beautiful and wonderfully appointed for views. The spa is luxurious. Plus there's a ski concierge and a kid's club.

Cortina Out of Season

The boutiques and many of the restaurants remain open, and the beautiful architecture - dominated by the green and white bell tower and the grand 19th Century mansions - looks even more striking against green. 'Cause out of season Cortina's scenery is just as spectacular as in season. And the skiing is replaced by walking, golfing, fishing, climbing and numerous other pursuits. The town still bustles with people and in summer the campsites are all full, so there's still a fun atmosphere.

  • As well as offering a free shuttle to the slopes in season, the Cristallo Hotel Spa and Golf also offers a free shuttle to the golf club out of season. And its gorgeous in both. The views are spectacular. This is Cortina's original luxury hotel and the old fashioned opulence really adds to the feeling of being pampered you get from the state of the art spa.
  • Lagacio Mountain Residence's 24 apartments are perfectly styled in modern woody-fur chic. They've taken ski lodge essentials and then modernised them, creating a comfortable but uber cool setting. A lot of these lodges are great for walkers, but this one is also great for fishing. Surprisingly it's also one of the best places to stay in Contina if you're saving your pennies for the aprés-ski scene.
