The mountain view theatre.

The "La Montanara" Refugio is located on the Altopiano del Pradel in the Paganella-Brenta Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A little piece of heaven where you can spend relaxing moments, savouring dishes that combine tradition and innovation. The Sartori family welcomed their first guest back in 1973, and little has changed since then. Life in the Rifugio follows nature's rhythms. Meals are homemade using seasonal, fresh and local produce. People come to this enchanting place to relax, get away from stress, and enjoy the silence that only the mountain can give. Over the years we have refurbished our surroundings to meet the needs of all our visitors, without ruining the genuine spirit and atmosphere that have always made us stand out. As you can tell, the Rifugio, the Altopiano della Paganella and the Brenta Dolomites are part of us, our history and our values. We look forward to giving you a warm welcome!
