Sesto Valley and Chalet Rudana
Sesto is a small but very charming village just a glimpse away from Innichen/San Candido. It lies in the heart of Three Peaks Dolomites, Unesco World Heritage area. It has a perfect geo position for all who loves to have all winter activities just in front of their hotel or apartment. From Sesto it is possible to enjoy 3 Peaks Dolomites ski resort with 100 km+ of perfect slopes. Sesto is a starting point to one of the most scenic cross country trail towards Fiscalina Valley. It is also a hot spot for hikers to reach mountain tops around the valley. But there is so much more to enjoy around the nearest villages.
To round up a super winter getaway, the place to stay is very crucial point to us. This time we choose Chalet Rudana. We loved the concept of being close to nature and their concept of 4 fundamental elements which each apartment is named after. We had Chalet style apartment WATER. Water, with its green colour represents the strength of prosperity. In water many things dissolve, and therefore even worries and tension, thus creating an ideal setting to rest and feel a sense of well-being.
What we loved the most in few words:
- wood in all rooms
- personal infrared sauna in the bathroom. Possible to use it whenever you want.
- well thought out spaces
- view from the living room
- located in the heart of Sesto Valley
- you can ski out from an apartment to the gondola
- cross country are trails just across the street
- bakery and shop close to the Chalet
- cozy and large bed
- fully equipped
Enough of the words. Let the photos tell more ...

Some facts are good to know about the Chalet Rudana. The building is built entirely without glue. The entire furnishing is consecrated to the smallest details to nature: insulation with natural materials, flooring in solid larch wood and clay plastered wall heating. Chalet Rudana is particularly suitable for guests with allergies. The two prominent characteristics of the holiday apartments in the Chalet Rudana are the infrared cabins, to experience in complete peace the pleasure of heat, and two panoramic balconies with breathtaking panoramas over the Italian Dolomites.
To borrow the text from Rudana's website, as it describes the ski area 3 Peaks Dolomites perfectly*:
The 3 Peaks Dolomites ski resort is an absolute insiders’ tip with uncrowded slopes for all levels of ability. It received the highest marks in all areas from skiresort.de for their unparalleled variety of optimally groomed slopes with snow guarantee. Discover five contiguous ski mountains and nearly 100 km of slopes on your skis. What is no longer a secret, however, are South Tyrol’s 300 days of sun per year and it is a multi-award-winning ski experience in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Dolomites.
Chalet Rudana is situated right on the slopes and allow you to experience the pleasure of skiing without stress and far away from traffic, in one of the most enchanting locations of the Dolomites.
We are coming back to the Dolomites for the third time in a row. Each year we've visited this area, the most beautiful cross country trail is Val Fiscalina. This 7 km long trail in one direction brings you to the heart of the mountains. At the beginning the trail is relatively flat and it takes you by the main river and through the forest. After a 2 km long climb, a great reward follows. The majestic view of the mountains embraces you from all sides.
It is a perfect relaxation in the pure nature. It is especially charming when it is snowing as you can almost feel the calmness of the whole valley. It is so quiet and peaceful like a deep relaxation.
