Thanks to Vacanze in Baita you can completely immerse yourself in the enchanting atmosphere of the autumn landscapes of the Trentino!
The chalets welcome couples wishing to spend a relaxing holiday amidst nature, gastronomy and unforgettable views.
A holiday in the nature of Trentino, relaxation and comfort in huts that have maintained the traditional style of the mountain house.
Where to sleep in an isolated cabin in the woods? There are plenty of huts, farms and chalets in the Alps.
What I am telling you about today is my experience a short time ago at Baita Filadonna, a mountain hut in the woods between the peaks of the Vigolana plateau, halfway between Alpe Cimbra and Valsugana in Trentino.
Baita Filadonna is part of the Vacanze in Baita Trentino association, 82 chalets scattered throughout the valleys of Trentino, renovated and embellished with the necessary comforts for seasonal use or, if equipped with heating, for annual use, even in winter with snow.
The longed-for summer holidays are approaching, and the classic dilemma arises: sea or mountains? If you are undecided, discover how to spend a wonderful holiday in a mountain hut in Trentino!
Summer is just around the corner, and it's time to start planning our well-deserved period of relaxation. As always, the first big choice is whether to opt for the sea and beaches, or the valleys and mountain peaks. We at Sgaialand love both, and when we came across "Vacanze in Baita" we immediately thought we'd share this great little wonder with you.
It has always been our dream to stay in an authentic mountain hut and, to be honest, until recently we didn't think it was so easy to find mountain huts for rent in Trentino.
The chalet in the mountains has always seemed to us to be something distant, luxurious, expensive. One of those situations where you either have "the friend who has a cabin" or the distant relative who has left you a property or a lot of money to spend on a weekend. There are those who can and those who cannot.
We have always chosen flats and hotels for our stays in the mountains, but after our experience in Trentino with Vacanze in Baita, I have no doubt that we will go back!
I recently discovered the Vacanze in Baita Association in Trentino and have had the opportunity to stay several times in some of their facilities.
Vacanze in Baita is a brand awarded by the Autonomous Province of Trento which highlights the quality of the facilities specialising in this particular form of hospitality for holidays in nature.
In fact, all mountain huts meet minimum requirements in terms of general characteristics, internal equipment and services.
Each hut preserves its own history within its walls.
The spaces have been renovated in keeping with the tradition of local architecture.
Fort delle Benne: It is located at the top of the homonymous hill that overlooks the Levico Lake, about 2 km from the village of Levico Terme. Also called the Fort of San Biagio, it was built between 1880 and 1882.
The Fort of Tenna: The fort is located on the hill of Tenna that separates the Lakes of Levico and Caldonazzo. In 2009 starts a restauration and it was inaugurated on 18th August 2012, but there are still negotiations for its public opening.
Gig Trench (fort) of Grigno: In 1866 in locality Martincelli was established the border between Austrian Empire and Italian Kingdom, between municipality of Grigno (Trentino) and Cismon del Grappa (Veneto).
For those who enjoy the pleasure of good eating are near the alpine huts the best gastronomic trails.
The good cuisine in trentino’s valleys is passed in generations. The cuisine of Trentino conserves scrupulously the authentic of its alpine roots. A traditional gastronomy carrying on possibility of improvement of quality and always strict of genuineness of its products. In this way ancient aromas were recuperated.
Healthful products become dishes, where you can taste typical flavours of territory and pureness of water. Here so trouts and brook trouts of mountain streams. Extra virgin olive-oil DOP of lake Garda Trentino, the biological vegetables of valley di Gresta, little fruits of Sant’Orsola.
Arte Sella is a permanent exhibition dedicated to Art in Nature, founded in 1986 and still managed today by the homonymous cultural association. During the 1980s, particularly after the Chernobyl tragedy, there was a need to re-establish a new relationship with nature. This reflection has been combined with making art in nature, a possibility to distance oneself from traditional artistic canons, in a new and freer space of expression, far from the logic of the art market and traditional atelier-gallery-museum circuits.
The projects that Arte Sella produces and supports are part of a creative process in which the artist abandons the role of protagonist and flanks nature, his ally in the creation and conservation of the work. Each artist chooses, together with the artistic direction, the place where to place his work, without making radical changes to the territory, but respecting it and acting in synergy and harmony with it.
