Hotel in Val di Fassa a stone’s throw from picturesque villages
Val di Fassa has no fewer than seven districts, including Soraga, the valley’s oldest village and where our Hotel Latemar is located. The name Soraga comes from the Ladin language and means “over water”, probably for its proximity to the Avisio river and Lago di Soraga, which can be admired from our hotel in Val di Fassa. Just a few kilometres from our hotel, you’ll find the village of Moena – a tranquil place nestled amongst the Dolomites where Ladin tradition is more alive than ever – and Vigo di Fassa, from where a modern cable car takes you up to Ciampedie with its panoramic viewpoint at 2,000 metres above sea level.
Sleep in Val di Fassa, where the Dolomites glow pink!
Sunrise and sunset at our hotel in Val di Fassa are wrapped in fascinating legend. Get ready to experience the phenomenon of the Alpenglow or “enrosadira”, which in Ladin means “become pink”, when the peaks of the Dolomites turn from orange to pink, treating you to an absolutely magical experience! The scientific explanation is that the “Pale Mountains” – which are made of a rock rich in magnesium carbonate and calcium carbonate known as “dolomite” – are so pale that they take on rosy shades at the light of dawn and at twilight. Or, if you prefer legends, let us tell you the legend of King Laurin and the origins of the Enrosadira:
“King Laurin, the king of the dwarves, had a splendid rose garden named “Catinaccio” or “Rosengarten”. One day the king of Adige/Etsch decided it was time to find a husband for his daughter, the beautiful Princess Similde. And so, he invited all of the kingdom’s princes to participate in a tournament. All except for King Laurin. Offended by the insult, Laurin still attended the tournament under his magic hood of invisibility and kidnapped Similde to take her to his rose garden. Laurin was chased by the princes and their knights and fought against them wearing his magic belt that gave him the strength of 12 men. Despite being invisible, the rustling of the rose bushes betrayed him, and he was captured. The pain of being betrayed by his beloved garden made Laurin so angry that he cursed it: His magnificent rose garden would no longer be visible to anyone – not by day, and not by night. But he forgot about dawn and dusk. That’s why at sunrise and sunset, the roses of the garden return to turn Catinaccio/Rosengarten a beautiful shade of pink.”
