In the heart of the Dolomites: a vacation in San Vigilio di Marebbe
The mighty Dolomites surround San Vigilio like a crown, and over the centuries have given the charming holiday village a certain independence. The village in the Marebbe Valley – a branch of Val Badia, at the foot of the Plan de Corones – has witnessed a thousand years of history. If you spend your holidays in San Vigilio di Marebbe, you will be able to discover some parts of it. Because here we speak Ladin – a neo-Latin dialect of the Roman era, which is the language of the Dolomites.
In every season, a paradise for active travellers
The Ladin people live not only in the heart of the Dolomites; they also carry the Dolomites always in their hearts. Their authentic friendliness, the genuine hospitality and the typical and traditional Ladin way of life testify to these close ties with the nearby mountain peaks. The traditional alpine architecture of the village with its compact, weatherproof houses, and the charming parish church “Our Lady” invites holidaymakers an every season. In the summer, you can enjoy a wonderful holiday in San Vigilio di Marebbe: wander through the surrounding forests and meadows, discover the village by mountain bike, climb the peaks or pay a visit to the nature park Fanes-Sennes-Braies. Do you love the thrill? In San Vigilio, the longest zip line in Europe awaits you.
A fabulous paradise for winter sports enthusiasts
During your winter holidays, here you are right in the heart of the Dolomiti Superski and thus will enjoy an overwhelming selection of wonderful ski resorts right outside the front door of your holiday apartment or in the nearby area. The Plan de Corones – certainly the ski mountain #1 in South Tyrol – is the first choice not only because of its proximity. Moreover, many other first-class slopes, cross-country trails or snowshoeing paths await you in the immediate surroundings during your holidays in San Vigilio di Marebbe. Even art lovers will be fascinated: every year in January, a marvellous snow sculpture festival takes place in the village. Last but not least, the nature park house offers many exciting exhibits and information about the nature park Fanes-Sennes-Braies.
