Where to stay in the Dolomites: Olimpionico Hotel for a gold medal holiday

4

In search of where to stay Dolomites? Last January we spent 5 amazing days at the foot of the Italian Dolomites, in a four star hotel that offered us a very quiet, sporty and fun vacation. Actually a gold medal holiday for the three of us!

Thanks to a fab last minute offer we ended up in Castello-Molina di Fiemme, a tiny village in the heart of Fiemme Valley. This is the Dolomites region of Trentino Alto Adige. 70km far from Trento and 140km from Brenner Pass.
Here, nearly 2.000 souls live in front of the beautiful Lagorai Mountains. No rush, no chaos, no stress. Just a slow and relaxed life for its inhabitants and tourists that every year choose to spend their holidays so close to the mountains recognised as World Heritage property by Unesco in 2009.
Castello lays down on endless emerald meadows, where sun shines longer during the day and kids can play safe.
Calm and poise as keywords. Shopping, leisure facilities and all the comfort are in a short step from here, at Cavalese (2km far from the hotel), the most famous small city of Fiemme Valley.

Olimpionico Hotel where to stay Dolomites Val di Fiemme

The name of this hotel, Olimpionico (olimpic in English), comes after the glorious gold medal won by Franco Nones during the Winter Olympic Games of Grenoble in 1968. In fact, the Nones’ family has always managed the hotel with a great passion and love for hospitality.

Today the building has been renewed and is one of the best and more comfortable of the entire valley. Wood, stone, embroidery and the typical mountain textile make the atmosphere elegant, refined, but at the same time very cosy.

When you come in, you immediately chill out. The lounge area, dining room and all the spaces in general are very airy but enriched with details that warm up the hotel atmosphere.

A beautiful Spa area completes the offer: gym, Kneipp bath, sauna, a-la-carte treatments and jacuzzi where even kids can relax with their parents every day until 17.00.
Simply the best to restore your body after a demanding ski day.

The hotel has a Swedish bar, dedicated to the gold medallist’s wife, where you can chat and relax in the evening, a ski room to leave all your sport equipment and two parking lots.

The rooms of Olimpionico Hotel where to stay Dolomites

Prove me a wider room, if you can” was our first impression on arrival.

Thanks to the last minute fare, we stayed in a triple standard room that struck us positively. Spacious enough and cosy at the same time, this room was a perfect solution for a small family like ours. One double bed and one single bed, big balcony facing Cermis ski slopes, fully equipped with private bathroom with shower and complimentary WiFi throughout.

Furniture is very simple in the standard room, if you compare it to the re-designed superior room, but our staying there was very, very comfortable and we were perfectly set! We couldn’t ask for more!

Delicious food at Hotel Olimpionico where to stay Dolomites

No doubt! The cuisine of Olimpionico Hotel was to die for!! Every evening we had a varied menu that tasted great, with different options among meat, fish and vegetables served with local wine. And even traditional dishes or mountain flavours were never forgotten to the entire family’s delight!

No special meals were offered to kids, but when Federico wasn’t able to find something tasty in the daily proposal, we asked for alternative dishes to our smiling maitre. Feel free to ask for bolognese pasta with no worries at all! The atmosphere is one of easygoing conviviality, so relax and enjoy your meal!

About Author

I was a convinced single & traveller, then I met a Toad and we packed together…now we travel in 4, as a toddler & a pet joined the team!

  • Never heard of Dolomites, and I’ve been to Italy at least 10 times! I’ve never been skiing, so maybe that has something to do with it. That’s good, now I have yet another reason to go back and see something new!!

  • Great coverage of the place! That bed arrangement reminds me so much of Austria and Germany hotels too. I always find it quirky that they arrange the bed like that.

  • I’m always on the look out for a place with good skiing and nearby lodging that’s as cozy as this. The room looks great and who doesn’t like a view with the slopes!

  • Sounds like an amazing place! Love that pool!
