, also known as La Lla in the Ladin language, is in the centre of Alta Badia
at an altitude of 1,483 metres.
At the foot of mounts Piz la Lla and Gardenaccia, surrounded by the Puez Odle and Fanes Sennes Braies natural parklands, this village boasts a breath-taking view
over the Sas dla Crusc, Lavarella and Conturines peaks.
In summertime La Villa, surrounded by verdant meadows
against a mountain
backdrop, is the ideal starting point for gentle walks or more strenuous hikes to the many refuges among the Dolomite
peaks. It is also home to the world’s most famous long-distance (gran fondo) bike race
the Maratona dles Dolomites
, in which every year over 9,000 cyclists from all over the world face up to the challenges of the Campolongo
passes. The route can also be followed by keen amateur cyclists.
La Villa is also the ideal place to buy local arts and crafts and for spending convivial evenings in company.
