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.

From May to October, the Briol’s unique atmosphere and architectural 1920s gems

make the place ideal as a summer retreat with nature and quietude, with a forest sauna and historic furniture

and with culinary treats such as self-made jams and Briol’s own honey.

Rooms of serene simplicity on 1,310 metres.

»We were free up here on the mountain, we could be as we were.«
