Eco-consciousness runs through the fabric of the renovated Pfösl, a historic family-operated inn placed in the abundant hills and lush forests of the Dolomites. Furniture and fittings in the accommodation – its dark-pine chalets a classy addition – are carved from Alpine solid wood sourced from the surrounding valley; the hotel’s energy is generated by a biomass heating system. That left-field mantra extends to the food offerings, evidenced by nourishment including gluten-free muesli and lactose-free diary items.
When guests are not arrested by panoramic views of Rosengarten and beyond, it’s fair to say wellness-based alternatives to sight-seeing abound. From the mountain-herb sauna to an outdoor Jacuzzi to the infinity pool, this is an invigorating ride, before we even get to the bountiful South Tyrolean activity options, hiking, mountain biking and playing golf among them.
