Catered Chalets Dolomites - Italy
Spectacular scenery, unique mountains, superb skiing
For more than a hundred years the Dolomites have been one of the best developed and significant winter sports centres in the world. The gigantic and spectacularly unique mountain range, recently declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is located in the north-eastern part of Italy. A tourist mecca, the Dolomites are famous for superb skiing in the winter months, with hundreds of perfect runs to suit all levels of skiing and all manner of activities that involve moving over the snow with grace and speed and fun. The Dolomites are enchantingly beautiful: lush forests, 3000m high mountain peaks, magically colourful rock faces and crystalline snow on the slopes provide an unforgettable backdrop for luxury winter holidays. Leo Trippi offers luxury apartments and luxury ski chalets for rent, some fully catered and some self-catered.
The Dolomite area, including one national park and many regional parks, forms part of the Southern Limestone Alps and extends from the River Adige in the west to the Piave Valley (Pieve di Cadore) in the east. Winter activities, including downhill skiing, ski-mountaineering, cross-country, snowshoeing, off-piste skiing, telemark, ice skating and sledging, make catered chalet holidays unforgettable. Summer, late spring/early autumn activities include mountain climbing, hiking, free climbing and base jumping, as well as paragliding and hang-gliding. The Dolomites are well-known for the “vie ferrate” or “iron ways”, a series of artificial rungs, metal ropes and iron ladders for rock climbing, that date back to World War I and were recently restored. In the first week in July, the popular and challenging Maratona des Dolomites, an annual single-day road biking race covering seven mountain passes of the Dolomites, is staged.
