A Historic Residence

Is an elegant 19th century mansion Boutique Resort located between San Candido and Dobbiaco (Toblach), in the South Tirol region of Northern Italy, close to the chic alpine resort of Cortina, Brunico and the Austrian border.

Built on the ruins of an ancient castle, this enchanting property sits in a private 5-hectare estate flanking the verdant woods of Alta Pusteria and offers magnificent views of the famous Dolomites mountain range.

With its breathtaking panoramic “Imperial” views of the Sexten Dolomites, the area has long been frequented by members of the European aristocracy, including The Hapsburgs.

Most famously, the Austrian Princess Sissi was a long-term resident of the municipality of Toblach, drawn to the purity of its alpine air and the curative “Emperor’s mineral water” mountain springs issued at the foot of the mountains.

King Victor Emmanuel III and Umberto I of Italy stayed at Valcastello, in what is now our King’s Suite when the Countess d’Acquarone family hosted their royal parties.

The Sexten Dolomites mountain range is now a Unesco natural World Heritage site.

Valcastello offers:

  • Grand historic suites and rooms
  • Private Tennis court with in-house coach
  • The only permanent Snow Polo Club in the Italian Alps
  • Two Golf clubs in the nearby area
