Your family Call with the Excelsior team

New 2021

Starting from this summer our resort facade presents itself in a completely new way. Stylish design meets clean lines: simply beautiful and inviting! In addition, you will enjoy an even more excellent living ambience in our 36 restyled rooms and suites of the Residence and the Castello Excelsior.

New 2020

Since the summer season 2020 a unique climbing experience awaits you directly on the outside walls of our Dolomites Lodge with climbing route and via ferrata. One wall, two experiences!

New 2019

"Living dreams" is what we call our 16 rooms and suites of the Dolomites Lodge, built in 2019, a modern house with a total of seven floors, which is connected underground with the other areas of the resort. Lots of space and light, homely and modern in design - and everywhere the scent of natural wood. Our highlight? The Dolomites Panorama Infinity Pool and the Dolomites Sky Spa on the roof of the Dolomites Lodge - exclusively for adults.

Dream location in the heart of the Dolomites and directly on the Plan de Corones slopes

Our resort is situated at the entrance of the Fanes-Sennes-Braies nature park, one of the most beautiful hiking and bike paradises in South Tyrol. In winter you can directly access the Plan de Corones ski slopes from the ski room with connection to the famous Sellaronda. The resort is situated on the quiet outskirts of the village, only 5 minutes on foot from the centre of the idyllic village of San Vigilio.

San Vigilio di Marebbe can be reached from the Brenner motorway exit Brixen in 30 minutes by car and is the only destination in the Dolomites without through traffic. The city of Brunico can be reached by bus or by car in 15 minutes.
