Ciasa de Colac
San Vigilio is a touristic centre with about 1,500 inhabitants situated in the middle of the Dolomites at 1,201 m above sea level. The idyllic village of San Vigilio is very popular with lovers of nature, culture and sport activities. “Bengnüs” in Ladin means welcome and “Ciasa” house/home. Ladin is a language developed from the mixing of Roman language with Rhaetic culture and survived in the Dolomites throughout the centuries up to modern times. The Ladin customs and traditions will surround you during your stay, as well as the Ladin cuisine, made of genuine dishes and characterised by authentic flavours.
The house “Colac” is located in the hamlet of Mantena (Mantenastr. n. 28), at the entrance of the village of San Vigilio, 1,5 km from the centre. The location is in an absolutely quiet place, in summer in the middle of green fields, in winter immersed in the snow, always with an absolutely beautiful view over the Dolomites of San Vigilio. The house is within easy reach on an asphalted and nearby even road. The apartments are rustic with wood furniture and panelling and they are fully equipped. Bed linen and towels are provided. A large private parking is located in front of the house. You need your car to reach the tourist centre and the ski slopes in winter.
