A perfect place for all the family
We all loved it here! A perfect place to celebrate a big birthday with small grandchild, adult children and visiting friends. Highlights were Belluno, Passo Giau in the snow (building igloo!), Cibiana and Monte Rite, walk up to chapel of San Dionisio, and of course the lovely pool! Beatrice and Massimiliano of Il Capriolo gave us a really memorable meal at the house - highly recommended.
What a magical home nestled in the mountains of the Dolomites. We traveled with 4 adults and 5 children (ages 5-11) everyone had their own beds and was very comfortable. The home is magical and does not disappoint, very well decorated with the feeling of comfort all around. Every window from the back has a spectacular view of the snowy mountains (we traveled mid-april). The adults loved sitting on the balconies in the morning with our espressos and in the evening Prosecco and wine catching up. Nights filled with laughs and watching our kids play. Our kids loved the indoor pool and sweet swing set outside and enough room to play tag and get in a little American football. While the adults could watch and relax on the balconies since it’s enclosed (perfect for every parent). The parking garage was perfect since we had rented a large van to fit us all. A short walk out to the left of the home down a little path will bring you to a main road with pizza, gelato, wine shop and others. On your walk you’ll hear the bells from the chapel across the way take tons of pictures. When I say this place is magical it’s an understatement. Paola was an amazing host! Sweet, attentive and knowledgeable. We got the impression that she genuinely wanted our stay to be perfect. She had our rooms ready the way we requested the set-up for the children, recommend great restaurants, a fantastic Prosecco tour and so kind upon our late arrival. There is also a beautifully done book on the home that you can purchase which I of course did and my kids keep asking when we can go back. As they flip a page a new memory comes out. Just perfect. A much needed vacation and an adventure with a ton of memories our families will always remember!
We loved this Villa. Incredible history (500 years!) w/ a modern remodel!
Great small town. Perfect house. Pool for the kids. Large dining room and kitchen. Perfect spring break with skiing in Cortina and Fly Fishing on the Piave River.
Wonderful house in the heart of the Dolomites. Could not have asked for a better base for cycling adventures. The house is ancient and beautifully restored, with all amenities and comfortable places to relax including the amazing pool and relax room downstairs. Bedrooms were comfortable, quiet and well equipped as was the kitchen and wonderful dining area that encourages lots of communal time together. Owner is fantastic to deal with, very friendly and helpful and there is also onsite parking which is hugely helpful given the tight, old streets in the area. Would absolutely recommend and would definitely come back again. Thank you!
Magic in the mountains
Trying to express the warmth, history and style of this residence is like trying to reduce the sublime views of the Dolomites to words - impossible. Suffice it to say that this property is very, very special. An ideal location, a breathtaking setting and the perfect melding of the past with the present make for an experience that will remain with you long after you leave. Many thanks to Paola for sharing her remarkable home with us.
This home is absolutely stunning! The pictures don't do the house justice....it is even more beautiful in person! We had a very long flight delay and the owner's son stays next-door, so he was able to meet, let us in and show us around the house. We almost didn't want to leave the house to sightsee around the towns because the home is so welcoming. The beds are very comfortable, plenty of towels are provided, we felt very at home. I had bought the home's book on Amazon earlier this year and asked Paola to sign one for us. She had one signed & ready for us in the house. We look forward to returning someday to this home and in the meantime cherish all our memories made.
Casa Galeazzi del Carmine is an ancient residence (sec. XV) located near Cortina, in the heart of the Dolomite region. Valle is a town of about 2000 inhabitants, which extends to the slopes of Mount Antelao. It is a town rich in ancient history, about 120 km from Venice and just over 20 km from Cortina d'Ampezzo. It is one of the main destinations for summer and winter tourism in the region. The locality is an ideal starting point for cultural and naturalistic excursions and for the practice of countless sporting and recreational activities.
Casa Galeazzi del Carmine is less than 4 km from Pieve di Cadore, the historical and cultural 'capital' of Cadore, as well as the birthplace of Tiziano Vecellio, the most famous painter of the Venetian Renaissance: even today in Pieve it is possible to visit the house ( transformed into a museum) that gave birth to the painter. The painting 'Madonna, a holy Bishop, Sant'Andrea and Titian' can also be admired in the archidiaconal church of Pieve of the great painter.
Another place of interest near Casa Galeazzi del Carmine is Vigo di Cadore, with the church of Sant'Orsola, where a remarkable cycle of 14th-century frescoes is preserved. A short distance from Vigo, in Laggio, it is also worth mentioning the ancient church of Santa Margherita, with frescoes of Byzantine taste. An hour and a half drive from Valle di Cadore is Venice, which for its urban features and its artistic heritage is universally considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world; roughly the same distance from Valle winds the famous route of the Venetian villas, built around the middle of the century. XVI by architect Andrea Palladio and admirably frescoed. Also the other Venetian cities (Belluno, Treviso, Padova, Vicenza, Verona), each with its peculiarities and its rich past, deserve to be visited.

A little more than twenty miles from Valle di Cadore, Cortina d'Ampezzo, which has been one of the most fashionable and glamorous cities in Italy for decades, offers the best of Italian and international fashion. Particularly noteworthy is the Cooperativa di Cortina, a shopping center that is one of the city's emblems, with particular and sought-after products in various sectors, from clothing to accessories to objects. About an hour and a half drive from Valle (and half an hour from Venice) there is one of the most prestigious Italian outlets (the Outlet Village of Noventa di Piave), with over one hundred single-brand and multi-brand stores and a large choice of products from the best brands, from Prada to Valentino, from Gucci to Burberry. As for the gastronomy, a great variety of restaurants in the area will be able to satisfy even the most demanding palates: among these the restaurant 'Al Capriolo' (with a Michelin star), in the village of Vodo, just ten minutes by car from Casa Galeazzi del Carmine.
Messner Mountain Museum 'Dolomites' (on Monte Rite); murals in Cibiana di Cadore; eyewear museum and Santa Claus' home in Pieve di Cadore; a museum of the cìdolo and of the lumber in Perarolo (in the so-called "royal villa", adorned with valuable stuccoes).
