Which village is the best to stay in -Val Gardena

I was wondering if someone may help.

We are going to stay in Val Gardena from the end of June for about 9 nights. Which is the best village to stay in - we would like to be near to restaurants and also close to the mountains for activities. All 3 villages look great! Does it make a difference which one we stay in? We are also looking for a 3s star hotel with a pool if anyone has an recommendations

Thank you!

Good day, and sorry for my bad english.

We stay in Val Gardena in the winter 2011 and stay on Santa Cristina, i like it very much and if i can, is my prefer. There is a trekking, chairlift and similar, calm, but life, shop.

Ortisei have more life, shop, "movida" for my more chaotic, all opposite Selva that I look muffled. But this is only my opinion.

About hotel, I don't able to help you, we stay in a delicious Garnì.

Hope you past a beauty vacation.

Really any of the three villages will be fine. They're all so close together that it doesn't make that much difference.

Ortisei is the largest of the three villages with more shops and restaurants. St. Christina is smaller and quieter, and Selva is nearer to the Sella Massif.

Have a look at the hotels on offer and choose one you like, rather than worrying too much about which village to choose.

At the end of June there are several events taking place in the valley. On 22/6 is the Sella Ronda Hero mountain bike race, then on 23/6 is the Sella Ronda bike day, where the passes are closed motor vehicles. Also from 22-29/6 is the Volksport week. There will be more people around than normal, but it shouldn't make accommodation much mor difficult to find.
