By Chalet Vanzi Sas
Absolutely worth the trip
The apartments of Vanzi Chalet in Piccolino / Pikolein district of San Martino in Badia (St. Martin in Thurn) offer the advantage of close contact with mountain nature. The Chalet’s slightly remote location offers quietness, serenity and full immersion in the authentic South Tyrolean atmosphere. The surroundings are full of lush woods, meadows, pastures, ancient farms, summer dairies and mountain huts. Meanwhile, all main tourist facilities, including restaurants, bars, a supermarket, a pharmacy, a ski pass office and Piculin cable car (Kronplatz, Dolomiti Superski) can be easily reached on foot within just 200 m. As far as the ski slopes are concerned, the legendary black run Piculin passes just a few steps away from the apartments, offering access to the large Kronplatz ski area, while a free ski bus to Alta Badia departs 200 m away from the Chalet. Public buses also stop 200 m away, allowing to explore the area without having to take your car, especially with the advantage of the Holiday Pass that enables all guest of Vanzi Chalet to use free of charge all means of South Tyrolean public transport.
