“Alpine town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

This little town sits at the bottom of the Gavia pass. There are many recreational activities that you can do from Santa Caterina year round. The hiking in June was amazing. No crouds, no cars, just you and the beautiful landscape filled with glaciers

“Still good despite the whirlwind”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We were surprised that Villa Taranto was open as last time we were in Stresa, villa Taranto had suffered bad storm damage. It was supposed to have lost thousands of specimens but we decided to go despite this. It was wonderful. It is still jam packed with plants and trees; there is a very good trail to follow and the walk around the Villa is highly enjoyable. If you like gardens and being outside, this is a must.

“Friendly little village”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

It's a helluva trek to get there but well worth it. The local people are friendly and the prices reasonable. One doesn't feel as if one is being "Ripped off". The lift system was upgraded several years ago, and there's plenty of ski-ing to keep us occupied. Generally, the snow is always good there as the village is quite high and the slopes are north facing.

“A magical place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Very beautiful place. And good quality snow. Lived in Santa Caterina in January 2013. In Bormio was +14C and there was almost no snow. While in Santa Caterina was winter. The ski area is small. But ski trails are very comfortable. The most beautiful area is on Cresta Sobretta.
