In the presence of the Queen of the Dolomites, the Marmolada
The typical Belluno hospitality is done in four for you
Want to ski? Yes, we are satisfied: let’s put them in front of the door of the hotel restaurant Baita Dovich, we are at the center of the Dolomiti Superski carousel with its 1200 kilometers of slopes connected by “La Bellunese”, the red of 12 kilometers, the longest descent of the Dolomites that connects to the Sellaronda. Let’s take the cable car to the top of the Marmolada, the largest glacier in the Dolomites, a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site, and let’s launch ourselves into the most beautiful white paradise in the world.
And if opening our eyes is summer? So much the better: we are in the realm of hiking and fun with the e-bikes that you can rent in the hotel. If we bring our own, we will find a small workshop well equipped for any eventuality. And the Marmolada cable car takes us to the 3250 metres of Punta Rocca from where we can enjoy a 360° view of the Dolomites. Not to be missed are the interesting Marmolada Grande Guerra 3000m Museum, the cave of the Madonna consecrated to Pope John Paul II in 1979 and the trenches of Serauta.
And after an intense day of activity in the kingdom of the Queen of the Dolomites, Manuela and Jacopo will welcome us with their care: she manages the structure, he is the first chef of the renowned restaurant. They have made Baita Dovich a well-kept and loved gem, enhancing in every detail the warm welcome of their mountain chalet.

But not only that… there is another beneficial effect for a complete and detoxifying regeneration that dissolves all muscle tension: the external Finnish barrel sauna. The contrast between the humid heat inside and the pungent cold outside stimulates the proper functioning of the temperature control center of our body. Simply put: brrr, what a thrilling feeling!
And here everything reconciles a restful sleep, in the panoramic rooms of linear essentiality contemporary alpine, where it is invigorating to walk barefoot on the beautiful gray oak paquet. A real ritual of good night.
