White shimmers the linen on the clothesline, greeting the wayfarers as a sign of warm originality as Hotel Briol surfaces between meadows and forests above the small village of Barbiano in the Isarco Valley. In this rural idyll on 1,310 metres, Johanna Settari, great-grandmother of today’s owner, once had her wealthy husband endow her with one piece of land for each of their 15 children. The villas erected thereon are still cosy oases of relaxation in close touch with nature.
