Dolomites-Val di Funes or Alta Badia

Jump to last reply

We're going to Italy in June and I have had the first two stops planned for months-a week in Venice and a week in a little villa outside Asolo where we will do day trips including at least one day of hiking in the Belluno Dolomites. Then we have from June 19th until we leave from Venice on the 24th. I plan on "somewhere" in the Dolomites. I have gone between Val Gardena, Alta Badia, Dobbiacco area or 2 days in one and 2 days in another.

In all my researching I have been most, well, enchanted I guess by the Val di Funes valley area. I had crossed it off as too out of the way as a base but now I'm wondering if it would be a good base as long as I decide we don't need to sightsee all the rest of the areas. It seems more quiet and undeveloped which is generally what we prefer for vacations.

I don't see much in the way of trip reports about this area. Has anyone here spent any time there? If so I'd love to hear any actual experience to make sure I am not just being seduced by good photography. We'll have a car so transportation is not an issue.We would probably stay in Santa Maddalena. I'm thinking we could still spend one day driving the passes through Val Gardena and Alta Badia but not sure I'd go all the way over to Lago di Brais which is a place I wanted to see but it's not absolutely necessary.

If we don't stay in Val di Funes we'll probably stay in La Villa, either at the Chalet Susi apartments or the apartments at the Lech da Sompunt. Both are owned by the same family and are somewhat outside the main area.

Thanks for any insights!
