Thanks to the relatively recent construction of a tunnel bypass, Madonna di Campiglio’s village is virtually car‑free and has considerable traditional charm, with elegant buildings dating back to the 19th century.
There are none of the hyper-chalets that draw wealthy visitors to the likes of Val d’Isère and Courchevel in France; instead there is a range of hotels where prices even at the top end are far from extortionate. This is a world‑class resort at an affordable cost.
A comfortable hotel 450m from the slopes, Hotel Italo is family run and friendly. The bedrooms are simple but comfortable, and the hotel is opposite the bus stop. It has a bar, lounge and dining room, plus a sunny terrace.
A family-run hotel close to the Pradalago lift in the centre of Madonna, Garni Arnica is also close to the shops and restaurants. Bedrooms feature lots of wood for a modern Alpine feel, and there’s a small wellness area with sauna, hot tub and Turkish bath. Breakfast is served in the Arnica Café, open all day to non-residents too.

Owned by the Maffei family for more than a century, the Hermitage Biohotel is just outside the town centre – the hotel offers a shuttle service. It’s decorated with lots of wood and stone, and has a spa with a pool. The Michelin-starred kitchen is presided over by chef Giovanni d’Alitta, who uses lots of herbs sourced from the local pastures and woodland in his dishes.
Hotel Chalet del Sogno
In a quiet position at the edge of the woods, the five-star Hotel Chalet del Sogno is run by the friendly team of Domenico and Miriam Schiavon, and heated geothermally. It’s also built only using natural materials, so rooms are naturally wood scented, and they feature wood‑burning stoves. The wellness centre, Oasi di Sogno, has a swimming pool with water bikes and underwater massage jets, plus a vapour-hay biosauna, a Turkish bath and a Finnish sauna.
