Your leisure paradise not far from Val Gardena – vacation on the farm
Platiederhof in Laion is perfect for relaxation and sports enthusiasts both in summer and winter. A multifaceted offer is waiting for you.
The Platieder farm is an ideal starting point for various hiking: directly in front of the farm run well known trails such as the Poststeig/Sentiero della Posta to Ortisei or the footpath to the Rasciesa where you can stop on the road in the cosy huts Unterpulg and Ramitzler and enjoy the amazing panorama view of the Dolomites, from Val Gardena on to the Sciliar until the Brenta Group.
Guests love also Nordic walking in the wonderful forests and green meadows around Laion, as well as the countless bike paths, while motorcyclists can enjoy the unique Dolomite passes as Laion is situated right at the entrance of Val Gardena. Model aeroplane pilots can pursue their hobby either right next to the Platiederhof or on the sloping meadow of the nearby Gasthof Hatzis. The largest mountain plateau in Europe, the wonderful Alpe di Siusi/Seiser Alm is easy to reach by car or by public transportation.
A literal paradise for skiers is the nearby Val Gardena, starting point of the famous Sella Ronda with 1,220 km of slopes and over 400 ski lifts. Only at 600 m from the Platieder farm public buses bring the guests relaxed to the lifts, where they can start an unforgettable day of skiing. Among the highlights of a winter holiday are cross-country skiing, sledging, ice skating, snowshoeing or ski touring in the unique Dolomites, part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2011.
For those who love culture, the towns Bressanone, Chiusa and Bolzano are not far from Laion and invite to varied sightseeing and shopping trips.
