These self catering appartments are a great choice if staying in Corvara. For a start, the ski hire shop is in the same building! No long walks with equipment at the start and end of the week.
Secondly, the gondola to the main Alta Badia slopes is just across the road behind the Posta Zirm hotel, just a couple of minutes walk. If you want to ski around the Sella Ronda to other resorts you can just walk around the corner from the hotel to the nearest piste and ski down to the Boe gondola - again just a short walk.
The appartments are very good value and even the smallest is spacious for two people. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a fantastic supermarket and also a butchers close by stocking a great range of fresh produce. Unfortunately the Supermarket doesn't open until 8:30 so if you like to buy your fresh bread and then get out on the slopes early you have a problem!
The town is busy early evening but then is fairly quiet - it seems to attract a lot of families, not a place for lively apres ski (good or bad depending on your point of view!)
At first glance there doesn't seem to be loads of choice for bars and restaurants (many are part of hotels) but when you look a bit harder there are some great places, many hidden away under appartments. Of particular mention are...
The bar under Chalet Madrisa - great spritz and free snacks, very friendly
Pizzeria Caterina - next door to Madrisa, good cheap pizzas
Grillkeller Adler - more upmarket but cosy atmosphere, local dishes well presented, still good value
Underground bar - good choice of bar snacks or full meals - local cuisine
Pizzeria Fornella - amazing pizzas, pasta and other local food. Good for families
Speckeller - so popular we couldn't get a table. Looked good though
Would return here without hesitation. Ski area at Alta Badia offers plenty of choice and some lovely long runs through the trees. Trip to Santa Croce is worth doing. Hidden Valley is beautiful but no longer very 'hidden' - seems everyone wants to do it making it a bit of a long ordeal getting there, and the Riffugio Scotoni was overcrowded and we couldn't get a table.
