Cozy atmosphere at Passo Sella

A little corner of tranquillity , a place with an incredible view over Sassolungo, Sassopiatto, the massif of Sella and Marmolada, a friendly and helpful staff. The place we’re talking about is a very small hut called “Fienile Monte”, and is well-known among the food lovers because of its selected ingredients, its sensational food and wine list and its location: it’s right on the slopes of the famous “Sellaronda” skitour, just a few steps away from the beautiful Gardena and Fassa valleys.

Just a few plates, prepared using premium quality ingredients and ancient alpine recipes: if you decide to stop here don’t forget to ask about “the special plates of the day” that won’t be on the menu but are usually incredibly good. If you’re a meat lover your palate will be surprised by the quality of their fillet steak, but if you’re a vegetarian don’t worry, there’s also plenty of options including truffle and veggies for gourmet plates that you won’t easily forget!

The atmosphere is cozy and informal, a romantic hut where the alpine elegance is at its best. Sheepskin, wood, leather and alpine design combined to give you a picture of what our “affordable luxury” idea is. The hut is open only during winter, and we suggest you to stop on their terrace ¬†even just for a quick glass of excellent wine or a portion of the incredible Tiramisu that the chef prepares for you at the moment.

Just a few tables, so don’t forget to book in advance if you want to make sure you’ll get your gourmet experience. If you’re looking for a romantic adventure with your partner or your family, this hut is the perfect spot for a friday or a saturday night to remember: you can leave your car at Passo Sella and enjoy a snowcat transfer to the hut, or you can use your snowshoes to get there walking under the stars.

Seceda skiing area is a very well-known place here in the Dolomites. It’s part of Val Gardena skiing resort and can be reached from any town of the Valley just using the lifts and the other skiing facilities of the area.

The view over Sassolungo, Sassopiatto, Sella Massif and Odle is breathtaking, and most of the huts have spacious terraces and sun chairs to enjoy it.

Today we’re going to take you to one of our favorite huts of this area: a place where every single detail counts, where the owners are so passionate about their job that they never stop looking for the best ingredients, the best local products, the best italian and international wines.

Maserati picked this hut for a partnership made of elegance, high quality food, incredible experiences: the location is a perfect spot for skiing, hiking, snowshoes excursions and…the ones who’re looking for very special memories can reach the restaurant by helicopter, wait for the sun to go down and ski back home when silence reigns over these mountains (you’ll shortly find more info in the “What to do” section of this website).

The selection of food is just incredible: the precious speck (smoky ham that’s probably the symbol of south tyrol); different kinds of homemade pasta, ravioli and dumplings; old vegetarian recipes with polenta and local cheese but also special venison and the best grass-fed beef. The surprise you wouldn’t expect is the plate most of the skiers ask for: the grilled juicy prawns accompanied by a delicious homemade tartare sauce!

The wine cellar will be able to impress even those who don’t drink at all: be ready to employ all of your five senses to get the best out of your drinking experience and let Markus, the owner, guide you through the best products that can suit your meal choice.

The hut organizes special nights for food&wine lovers, and is famous for its New Year’s Eve events, where people get here using the gondola and leave on the skis after a dinner that will wow every single guest.

Sellaronda ski tour

Whether you are an excellent skier or just a mountain lover that loves taking pictures moving around with the skis, you’ll absolutely love this ski tour.

We’re talking about a circuit on skis around the Sella massif, an average of 26km of downhill runs that you can ski clockwise or anti clockwise, discovering the beauty of four wonderful Dolomites’ passes: Sella, Gardena, Campolongo and Pordoi. The spots where you can start from are innumerable, exactly like the slopes that you’ll find all around the circuit: some of these are famous all over the world, like the breathtaking Gran Risa leading you to the lovely town of La Villa or the challenging Saslong a few steps from the little village of Santa Cristina.

The landscape will change and surprise you around every single corner, giving you the feeling of a unique experience.

Let’s not forget to mention the gourmet-huts you’ll find all along the route: homemade pasta with truffle, fresh fish, organic meat, an ancient tradition of homemade cakes, carefully baked using the best ingredients.

Any skier interested in this ski tour must be fit and must carry the proper ski gear, even if the runs themselves are middling difficulty rather than advanced. We also suggest that our guests start no later than 10am and reach the last pass at 3:30pm so that they won’t miss the last ski-lifts.

For further information and suggestions about the slopes, about the best spots for a comfort tea or an unforgettable lunch, do not hesitate to send us an email or to give us a call.
