San Lorenzo Mountain Lodge is a romantic chalet that is truly unique for its style, its charm and its panoramic setting. Giorgia and Stefano have succeeded in creating a mountain residence that is elegant yet in absolute harmony with the still-pristine forests of the Pusteria Valley. San Lorenzo Mountain Lodge, once a hunting lodge, dates back to the sixteenth century and today it is a gem of rare and refined beauty with a warm and reassuring atmosphere.
Exceptional luxury in an ecological style, if you will. Here, you’ll find “refuge” in the truest sense of the word. Here, you’ll find that tradition and fine craftsmanship have been passed down, unaltered, through the generations to proprietors who are wise enough to safeguard this valuable heritage.
The lodge has four bedrooms, 3 double and a 4 bedded room – each different from the others and unique in its own special way. Some have valley views while others face the woods, but they all share some common qualities: they are bright, quiet, romantic, and designed with loving attention to every detail. By day, your bedroom will be your own secret hideaway; by night, it’ll be a place of deep and rejuvenating slumber.
With the help of expert carpenters, Giorgia and Stefano have refurbished a room in which Speck ham was once smoked. Once again in this space, we find a wonderful atmosphere: custom-made traditional wooden furnishings exist in perfect harmony with the latest electric appliances.
At San Lorenzo Mountain Lodge, guests have the option of enjoying Giorgia’s delicious local specialties or being served by a prestigious chef – expect a feast of the palate and of the senses accompanied by fine wines from South Tyrol and beyond.
From the exterior of the lodge, you can access what was formerly a small stable for goats, with the original stone walls and wooden roof. Giorgia and Stefano have transformed this space into a delightful and intimate wine cellar. In this charming and very original tasting space, your hosts will guide you through a selection of wines and give you an introduction into the unique aromas and flavours of the region.
After strolling through the woods – where you’ve been walking across soft moss under verdant, soothing foliage or over a blanket of newly fallen snow – herbal tea awaits you. Inside the chalet, there is the heat of the fireplace and the Tyrolean stove. The aroma of natural oils and nature’s vapours and scents waft through the air. This is a place where you can take a real break from the hustle and bustle. This is a place where you can banish the frenzied thoughts that are part and parcel of everyday life.

From San Lorenzo di Sebato, at the crossroads between the Val Pusteria and Val Badia, a little road leads to San Lorenzo Mountain Lodge. Green land stretches to the woods that cover 17 hectares and the ancient residence stands in a clearing that overlooks the bottom of the Val Pusteria. In the distance the town of Brunico can just be seen as can the ski domain called Plan de Corones. On the other side of the valley the Ladina part of the Val Badia opens up, better known as Alta Badia with its stunning peaks of the Dolomites which have been a UNESCO World Heritage site since June 2009.
