Reader, if you are a lover of the romantic and believe in the magic of love, you really need to experience Valentine’s Day in the mountains.
The picturesque landscape, snow-covered woods and the welcoming hostelries of Val Gardena are exactly the right backdrop for a romantic break focused on relaxation, well being and togetherness.
There are many different ways for lovers to celebrate the occasion: at Santa Cristina there is a magic Valentine’s Day torchlight procession, a light show in the snow accompanied by expert skiing and snowboard instructors.

But our hotel offers an exclusive Valentine’s Day special. Especially for lovers the Hotel Tyrol has Juac, its own private mountain chalet retreat, set in the woods of Val Gardena with fabulous views over the Dolomites, especially of Sassolungo, Sassopiatto and Sciliar. To reach the chalet you follow a magical trail through the snow and the trees, on snowshoes or you can also get there on skis thanks to an off-piste run. On arrival you’ll be welcomed by the warmth of the wood-burning stove and the wood-panelled walls. Dinner will prepared by our own chef using traditional products and of course, it’ll be served by candlelight. We offer our very best to ensure your stay is really romantic, set amid unspoilt natural landscapes, and pampered by the warmth and good food. The cold starry night will do the rest, the silence and that special magic of true love.

Wake up to an excellent breakfast before returning to the hotel and, if you like, why not spend the rest of the day hand-in-hand exploring the Puez-Odle park, a stone’s throw from the Juac retreat.
The Hotel also offers a full range of spa services, an unmissable opportunity to relax and refresh body and mind, all with the one you love. You can also try our saunas to warm and cleanse your body after a day on the slopes. The sauna in the chalet is actually built in the snow and really gives that nordic sensation. Or why not enjoy our jacuzzi and pool carved out of the rock or for one of the many treatments our SPA offers, such as revitalising massages surrounded by the charm of natural wood.

Trust us when we say that there is no more beautiful spot to spend Valentine’s Day: Val Gardena offers the stunning beauty of the mountains – which let’s not forget has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site -, the delight of the snow, total peace and quiet, and the full care and attention of the best of hoteliers. And, why not, the mountain retreat would make a beautiful place to declare your love, in what is an unforgettable, picture-postcard setting.
