Places & Spaces: The Vigilus Mountain Resort in South Tyrol, Italy

Set in the South Tyrolean Dolomite mountains of Italy, the Vigilus Mountain Resort is perfect place to rest year-round.

The Vigilus Mountain Resort is said to be like an island in the mountains, located in the South Tyrolean Dolomites of Italy. Each room has an organic feeling with elements such as clay, glass, stone and linen mixing with the pleasant aroma of wood and fresh air. The panoramic windows offer dramatic views for miles, giving guests the sensation of bunking out in a modern tree house. The resort is accessible only by foot or cable car, which means no traffic or noise, connecting guests that much more directly with the sounds of nature.

The main building was designed to resemble a fallen tree lying in the woods; the wooden lattice façade looks like bark. From a sustainability standpoint, local materials were used during its construction. Guests are invited to take advantage of the spring water pool, to indulge in fresh, local food, and to explore the property. At the Vigilus, “nature is the gym” and the resort offers mountain biking, Nordic walking, hiking, snowshoeing, and toboggan rides. If you are looking to relax, take a deep breath, and connect with nature, the Vigilus is the place for you.

If you go: take advantage of one of the many packages offered. Rates start at approximately $270.00USD per night.
