Your ECO B&B in San Vigilio di Marebbe - South Tyrol

Cosy. Relaxing. Natural. Dolomites.
Les Gomines is a truly special place. Barbara greets her guests with a smile that comes from the heart and immediately you feel welcome. Charming details are artfully arranged in the nooks and crannies of this B&B, and the view of the Dolomites is both comforting and stunning. The deep green of the trees all around soothes you. Here, time moves slowly. You relax, slow down and leave all your worries behind.
Barbara’s discretion puts every guest at ease, so you feel right at home, whether you are at breakfast with wholesome regional foods, in one of the comfortable rooms conveying a sense of endless harmony, relaxing in the infrared sauna or even when you are out exploring the wonders of nature, both big and small.
In Ladin, Les Gomines means a small, enclosed meadow. It is a cosy haven where you can enjoy a holiday in a natural, peaceful setting. The centre of San Vigilio di Marebbe is just a few steps away, and the renowned Fanes-Senes-Braies nature reserve is also nearby, offering a spectacular view of the Dolomites. Les Gomines is unique in its simplicity, a special place where you can spend a truly memorable holiday filled with a variety of eco-friendly experiences.
I want to create a special place where people and nature find the space they deserve.
Barbara Frenner

With sensitivity and care

Les Gomines has been a dream come true for me. I was born into an extraordinary family that has, for generations, offered hospitality to guests in Val Badia. And with my B&B, I have had the chance to create a warm and intimate holiday home, to share my world and my style of hospitality. Guests find me likeable and sensitive to their needs. I love nature and my Ladin culture, I love being with people and I love learning about their ideas of life.
I am very conscious and respectful of the environment, even in my personal life. At times I can be overly meticulous and somewhat of a perfectionist, but that is probably due to the unconditional devotion I give to the world around us and, of course, to my children, Giovanni and Alma, who bring our home to life with their joyful energy.

Our offers

It is a delight to invite people into my world and share their thoughts and experiences.

Living in harmony with and in nature

The Dolomites, synonymous with greatness, wonder and majesty.
Every day fascinated travellers look out onto these extraordinary landscapes and their abundant flora and fauna, which Barbara treats with utmost respect and a sense of responsibility. The way she runs Les Gomines is sustainable and eco-friendly as well. The building was constructed in accordance with the strict energy efficiency standards of Klimahaus and it has been furnished with natural materials. It is powered with energy from sustainable sources and, naturally, the use of natural resources is environmentally conscious. The foods served at breakfast are seasonal, local, organic or homemade, and Barbara goes to no end to ensure that Les Gomines is a sustainable, eco-friendly holiday home. Because she believes so firmly and sincerely in the importance of environmental susstainability, it is all guaranteed by green certifications and international GSTC certification.

A few of the main steps we have taken to create a magical holiday while protecting the environment at Les Gomines:

Green Building

The building was constructed in accordance with the strict Klimahaus energy efficiency standards. Each and every room was designed to bring people closer to nature, using natural materials like wood, natural fibres, ceramics and natural water-based paints.
A respectful relationship with nature and with people characterises both our life and our guests’ holidays at Les Gomines.

Forays into Ladin culture
Barbara has Ladin roots and is proud to share with guests the traditions of her region, which make it so unique. The Ladin language and culture date back to over 2,000 years ago. In Roman times, the Romansh language spoken by the native population mixed with the merchants’ Colloquial Latin, giving rise to Ladin. Today, Ladin is the third regional language spoken in South Tyrol and the native tongue of some 30,000 Ladins, a recognised ethnic minority. With deep roots in this land, the Ladin people in the Dolomite valleys still consider themselves a single entity and, with a trilingual school, their own radio station and Ladin language newspapers, they have kept their precious cultural heritage alive.

Strongly anchored roots

Spectacular views from the Lavarella mountain hut
Barbara cherishes the many childhood memories she has of “Rifugio Lavarella”, in the heart of the Fanes-Senes-Braies nature reserve. The first little hut was built in 1912 by her ancestors and is now run by Barbara’s sister, a keen sommelier, and by her sister’s husband, Gábor, a brewmaster. For a century, the renowned mountain hut has been celebrated for its warm hospitality and excellent food, and now the on-site GA-Beer brewery has brought another touch of excellence to this mountain gem. Open in the winter and summer, the Lavarella mountain hut is one of the most popular destinations in our valley.

Experience nature in the Dolomites

Sports and outdoor activities in Val Badia
Spring, summer, autumn and winter, no matter what the season, the Dolomites - a UNESCO world heritage site - the fabled Fanes-Senes-Braies nature reserve and the idyllic Val Badia offer a wide selection of sports activities. Climbing, hiking, cycling, skiing in the number 1 ski area - Plan de Corones is part of the Carosello Dolomiti Superski linked ski resorts - or cross country skiing along the spectacular natural trail that crosses Val di Rudo: Les Gomines is the perfect place to dive into nature and immerse yourself in all its wonders.

Summer

Cycling through the peaks

Road bikes, mountain bikes, e-bikes, which do you prefer? The Dolomites around San Vigilio di Marebbe are a genuine paradise for cyclists. Take a leisurely ride on the road over passes or through the woods, or venture out on the mountain trails. The cable car will take you up to the freeride trail on Plan de Corones and you can hire a bike and then store it safely in our garage, which even has a charging station.

Hiking and climbing: guaranteed fun for everyone

An easy walk to an Alpine hut for the whole family, a challenging hike towards the summit, a spectacular climb on a wall of rock: around Les Gomines any mountain-lover will find the perfect place to explore the Dolomites of Val Badia, steeped in myths and legends. Once you’ve reached your destination, find nourishment in the delicious traditional dishes served in the mountain huts. And who knows, you might even come face to face with a marmot!

Fill your soul with peace, experience the Dolomites

Watch the sun cast a palette of delicate pinks and luminous reds onto the pale Dolomites: even we are captivated by the alpenglow every day, as if we were seeing it for the first time. Admire the flowers in myriad shapes and hues that fill these meadows or the eagle soaring free over the mountaintops. Let yourself go in nature, let it fill you with all its silence. Relax and recharge. For once, let your thoughts wander. Explore this Dolomite mountain paradise alone or on a guided nature tour organised by the tourism association.

Yoga in the Yurt

Your ecological yoga studio in the Dolomites.
The Yurt with its round design conveys calm and security and the closeness to nature as well as a certain degree of freedom invites minimalism. Our Yurt should remind you of the essentials through its natural construction, combined with the practice of yoga and meditation, and offer us the opportunity to rediscover ourselves in an unusual but comfortable ambience.

Open from May to October.

Winter

Boundless skiing in the Dolomites

Plan de Corones – with its 120 km of slopes, cutting-edge lifts and stunning, 360° view of the surrounding peaks – delivers an unforgettable skiing experience. The reliable skibus stops in front of Les Gomines and carries avid skiers directly to the slopes. Famous World Cup slopes, snowparks for children and Cianross night skiing: your ski holiday in the Dolomites will certainly be special! And if that is not enough… Plan de Corones is linked to other ski resorts, including Sellaronda in Alta Badia. Dolomiti Superski will not let you down!

Winter adventures beyond the slopes

Would you prefer cross country skiing in an enchanting winter wonderland? A 24-km cross country skiing trail starts just a few steps away from Les Gomines and meanders through the snowy woods and meadows around San Vigilio. Or you can explore the winter landscape on snow shoes with a guide. Unless you’d rather travel back in time for the thrill of an old-fashioned sleigh ride.

The thrill of ski mountaineering in a pristine winter landscape

Climb the solitary, snow-clad mountain face, step by step. Reach the summit and feel the freedom of standing at the top. Let the stunning panorama enchant you. Take the skins off your skis, then race down the unspoiled snow, leaving your mark. Alta Badia offers many ski mountaineering tours far and wide, high and low, all around the awe-inspiring winter landscape and its fantastic peaks. There’s something for everyone, from easy trails to more challenging routes, with expert guides available upon request.

Experience the magical winter silence

The gleam of snow crystals sparkling in the sun. A luminous mantle of snow delicately covers the quiet rock below, like a winter cloak. Breathe in the silence and energy radiating from this magnificent white. The winter sun warms your face and restores you. Let your thoughts run free as you recharge. Enjoy the full magic of winter alone or on a guided hike or snowshoeing tour organised by the tourism association.

"Take only memories, leave nothing but footprints."

Prefer to travel green and get around without a car? You are absolutely welcome here, where a holiday without a car is pleasantly relaxing. You can reach San Vigilio by bus or train.

The excellent connections by bus, shuttle or cable car take you (almost) everywhere. The bus stop and the Plan de Corones cable car are only a few steps away from our front door. And, on request, we can arrange for a taxi, car hire or bicycle hire.

Beautiful B&B in the Dolomites
We had to stay here for a night before checking into a longer-term hotel. The owners were very accommodating and helpful and made our stay very enjoyable. The room and breakfast area were very clean and comfortable. There is a short, steep climb to get to the B&B from the road, but we found it fine. About 50m from the front door is a bus stop that takes you to the main resort ski lifts and then through the town. We would stay hear again.
