Hotel Icaro Hotel


Fabian Dalpiaz Icaro Winter

Leave it to the mountainscape to breathe a sense of renewal into a winter getaway. The Dolomites stands and delivers – at 1,900m above sea level, be prepared for a rocky ascent, with views to reward you. Overlooking the picturesque Alpe di Siusi is Icaro, a design- forward hotel with a sustainable ethos (it become the first climate- neutral hotel in the Dolomites more than a decade ago). From first sight, the striking larch-clad exterior and spruce, oak and elm interiors unite nature and art, all 29 rooms championing the Alpine skyline with uninterrupted views from the balcony and adorned with bright, contemporary art. Very much a family affair, Angelika Sattler is the third-generation owner and her artist husband Hubert curates the artwork. A breakfast of Italian pastries fuels your winter adventure – the area is a skiiers’ paradise – and, for rest days, make a beeline for the spa and pool. It’s the Alpine refuge you didn’t know you needed.
