Located far from busy roads and motorways, the Sarentino valley in South Tyrol is sheer paradise for those who are fond of walking and invigorating themselves, while surrounded by rhododendrons in bloom.
Of course, this does not mean that you have to forget about swimming pools, horse riding and mountain bikes. You can also climb to breathtaking heights, take in all the fresh air and then play tennis.
With a surface area of 303 km² and a length of 50 km, the Sarentino valley is the largest municipality in South Tyrol and calls 10 villages its own.
A secret tip is and always will be the Sarentino valley during winter, with its family ski resort Reinswald (1,570 - 2,460 metres), suitable for ski tour walking and cross-country skiing. Under a white blanket the Sarentino valley presents itself at its most romantic and idyllic.
If you work up an appetite, you will surely find the local specialities inviting.
Those whishing to watch the "Klöckler" before Christmas will be surprised to discover that there are still "spirits" living here.
