We were very pleasantly surprised with our stay at the Villa Christina. The Villa Christina is conveniently located in the new part of Dobbiaco - about a 10 minute walk from the old town center - but very close to the tourist office and bike rental places. The rooms were clean, and quiet with good beds; the lobby and dining areas were adequate although a bit too small. We stayed for a full week and took the half-pension option which provided breakfast and dinner. The food was excellent- simple home style cooking but with high quality fresh ingredients - and generous offers of second helpings! The owners (who speak English, Italian and German) are warm and friendly and really made us feel comfortable and at home. We would definitely stay there again.
Dobbiaco and the other towns in the Val Pusteria are all very charming. There are lots of things to do- We took funiculars to high spots in the mountains, had lunch (meats and cheeses) in the various "malgas" (mountain huts) and walked back down, rented bikes and rode 30 miles (all the way downhill) to the charming town of Leinz in Austria. A very relaxing vacation in a beautiful alpine environment.
