Great Holiday in the Dolomites. - 25/03/2019

Brilliant week in the Italian Dolomites. The area has benefited from continued infrastructure investment. Would highly recommend the Hotel Linder for location, service and food. Italy continues to be excellent value.

Early February week based at Continental Hotel in Selva - 20/02/2019

We had an incredible week of skiing at this resort. It was our first time to the Dolomites and scenery, skiing, people, and weather [snow on the first day, sunshine thereafter!] were all amazing. The hotel we chose (the Continental) was located on the Sella Ronda which made it easy to get to a lot places and we could cover great distances. The hotel was clean, seemingly quite recently refurbished, very comfortable, with a good mix of extra services (bar, games room, small spa, etc) and the staff were excellent - very helpful, welcoming, and unobtrusive. The multi-course evening meals were lovely, with a nice and affordable local drinks list, and overall it was very good value for money. Those seeking the very ultimate in luxury would look elsewhere but we felt it was pitched just right for a week of skiing! Very highly recommended. The only slight downside was that you trade a location on the slopes for a 10 minute hill walk into the main town area and apres bars. Selva itself is small but we found three good bars offering a mix of apres and evening entertainment - more than enough. We went just before UK half-term weeks so it was still relatively quiet and we barely had to queue for lifts (helped by the massive ski area no doubt!) - the only exception being when we skied out to the Marmolada glacier runs beyond Arabba and the queues seemed enormous. There are some huge and long runs, great for intermediates; several parks; but perhaps not that many super-challenging runs for the hardcore (not us!)? Food on the mountain was seemingly good value, although pretty much the same everywhere we went in the area! Overall, we rated this as one of the very best skiing holidays we've had in the past decade and would recommend not only the area, the town of Selva (great location), but also the hotel. A perfect combination for a fun and relaxed week on the mountains! [also worth noting that Iglu were very helpful throughout, and particularly when one of our group suffered an injury a couple of days before we were due to start the holiday and we had to rearrange some details at the last minute. We'd certainly book through them again in future for the ease and professionalism we experienced. ]

Selva - 06/02/2013

We returned home from Selva on Saturday and just like you, had a wonderful time in the Dolomites. The skiing was incredible - even after a hard week's skiing I still feel we only scratched the surface there is so much of it! My favourites were the black runs from Champanoi either down Sass Long or back down to Selva itself, and the Hidden Valley which is on the edge of the Cortina area is the most beautiful run I have ever done. Mountain restaurants were the most plentiful and best quality I have experienced. Just so many terrific cosy huts with great Italian food (plus some Austrian favourites too such as Apple Struedel - good that you get the best of both Austria and Italy in the South Tyrol). Friedrich August was my favourite - 2,200m up and with Highland Cattle wandering around outside plus a wood burning oven delivering fab pizza. We all loved it and would very much like to return. The prices were very fair too - especially compared to France or Switzerland. Only down side from my perspective was slipping on an icy pavement in the village on day 2 and cracking a rib. Made skiing a little painful from then on! Thanks again for all your help and patience in booking for us and in finding such a wonderful hotel.

Selva is a fantastic resort and will suit families and up to intermediate level skiers. The main plus points are its vast ski area, great lift system and loads of great places to eat. There are lots of other things to do too such as ice skating, bowling etc. There is also some breathtaking scenery. The only down side is that most of the runs are blue or red so wouldn’t excite expert level skiers.
