Summer on the Alpe di Siusi - Detoxify in Paradise.
The road climbs steeply from Castelrotto to Compaccio, the first fraction that appears coming to the Alpe di Siusi. Before you can venture into the Alpe by car, you must stop at the San Valentino Forest Station to collect a special permit to circulate on the plateau. And only if you are lucky enough to stay in one of the wonderful hotels that are located at high altitude. Otherwise here, on the largest plateau of Europe - 56 km2 of pure green, immersed in the magic of the Dolomites - from 9 to 17 with the car you can't absolutely drive around.

The Alpe di Siusi is truly a relaxing and magical place: not for nothing one of the 450 km of hiking trails that can be covered in the area is dedicated to the little witch Curandina, heir of the powerful witches who lived in the woods in ancient times âBosch Curasoa âand who came to the rescue of the inhabitants of the mountain whenever they were needed. The witches' spring is located just above the Hotel Tirler, a 4-star superior oasis located in Saltria - the other fraction of the Alpe di Siusi - where once you arrive you will never want to leave.

The Hotel is a splendid example of bio-architecture: perfectly integrated in the surrounding nature, it is built in wood (the fragrance of the pinewood will accompany you throughout the holiday), stone, lime and clay; electromagnetism is constantly monitored and reaches almost imperceptible levels; in the kitchen only alternative sugars are used such as galactose, isomaltulose, trehalose and tagatose; the water from the witches' spring flows directly into the hotel taps, and is certified and very pure; and allergy sufferers can choose from 5 different types of pillows, from the latex one to the one with cherry stones to the viscoelastic foam one.
