Your Holiday Centre

Holidays to the Dolomites invite you to uncover beautiful secrets in one of the most stunning mountain ranges in the world, an Eden of striking peaks, lush valleys and hidden lakes. Vertical walls, sheer cliffs and sharp plateaux combine to make an unmistakable silhouette.

The Dolomites were named for the rock they are made of. At dusk and dawn, the sunlight paints the mountains pink and purple, a phenomenon called enrosadira by the locals.

Wandering through sweeping valleys and past clear lakes, this area is relatively unheard of in Britain, so you can experience natural Italian beauty without the hoards of tourists.
