Val di Non in Trentino, in the heart of Brenta Dolomites and Maddalene: Make it a mountain holiday!
In Val di Non, a vast fruit orchard in the heart of north-western Trentino, hospitality means visitors’ friendly holiday offers in both summer and winter, staying in close contact with nature, surrounded by varied and beautiful landscapes with plenty of choice of sports and leisure activities!
This green and sunny plateau has many scenic mountain destinations, like the Brenta Dolomites and the beautiful Maddalene group, hamlets where traces of ancient history and culture are preserved.
The valley centre with the artificial lake of Santa Giustina is surrounded by green hills with castles immersed in fruit orchard and forests: ancient and fascinating mansions that are definitely worth a visit. The most imposing is perhaps Castel Thun, at the entrance of the valley, which is one of the most prestigious cultural and museum centers in the whole Alpine region.
Canyons are the special attraction of the Val di Non. Dug in the rocks in the past millennia by the rivers that cross the valley, canyons can be explored along many trails. The Rio Sass Canyon in Fondo and the Novella River Park, set among the villages of Dambel, Cloz and Romallo, are doubtlessly the most spectacular in the valley.
Val di Non hospitality means plenty of accommodation choice: hotels are generally intimate and family-run. Visitors can therefore strike up friendly relations with their helpful, guest-oriented hotel owners. Among the valley highlights is the offer of farm holidays (agritourism): with guesthouses or ancient manors surrounded by apple orchards or located at the foot of the mountains, visitors can rest and enjoy a holiday immersed in nature and deep connection with the local rural soul. Accommodation facilities include garnì, boarding houses and labelled-quality residences, as well as a luxury campsite with fully-furnished chalets. It is worth a final note to mention that the Val di Non is currently focusing on wellness & spa. The number of hotels now offering state-of-the-art wellness centers along with quality restoration is on the increase.
