Alpe di Siusi, Dolomites, Italy
In the middle of the UNESCO World Heritage Site stands the ICARO, a retreat and energy oasis. Since 1936 ICARO has overlooked and lovingly guarded the Seiser Alm/Alpe di Siusi at 1,900m above sea level. From the Cir peaks over the Langkofel/Sasso Lungo to the Kesselkogel/Catinaccio d’Antermoia and on to the Schlern/Sciliar. The interior of the new ICARO convinces with contemporary, inspiring and surprising elements. In the rooms and in the suites, in the restaurant and at the bar, as well as in the pool and spa areas, unexpected new designs come as a surprise.Check availability

What’s the story?
- Angelika Sattler and her family are the third generations to run the house. All family members live and love the mountain throughout the seasons. Angelika takes care of every little detail, but she never loses sight of the big picture either, for it is her desire that every guest finds a haven of peace and a source of strength at once. During the renovation works, it was important for the Sattler family to use sustainable materials, involve local craftsmen, and safeguard authenticity.
