About Luca

Luca Savelli is a keen skier and has skied since he was 4 years old in Cortina.

Based in London since childhood, Luca visits Cortina 3 times a year with his friends, though otherwise works as an archaeologist, primarily in Ethiopia and Italy. He is a keen traveller, historian, polo player, and also enjoys running his estate in Tuscany .

Why Luca chose Cortina d'Ampezzo

Luca Savelli recently bought this flat having looked for the perfect place for a number of years: interior style, location, views and size were all key factors, and after seeing numerous other flats this was one of the first to have everything needed.

The interior style is an elegant Italo-Tyrolese style, with wooden pannelling through out and designed as a chalet should be: warm, cosy and aesthetically pleasing. The views are fantastic, as one can overlook the old town centre with its tall church-spire, though which is dwarfed by the soaring Dolomites behind; in fact both terraces offer excellent views of the mountains.

The location could not be better. Facing West and South, the flat enjoys sunlight all day and witnesses to the sun setting behind the Tofana Mountain Group each evening; below is a mountain stream with a small waterfall adding to the mountainous atmosphere. The house is in an elevated position, just outside the centre of Cortina in one of the town's more chic parishes known as Pecol, however, in 5 minutes one can reach the town on foot, or in 2 minutes by car.

At about 85sqm, the property is great for families and couples and has outdoor parking (snow is cleared efficiently in Cortina, and roads well gritted), and is a well managed and popular property generally. It should be noted that the third bedroom, while made up of 2 standared single beds, is on the small side (ideal for children though adults can stay too for short periods).

What makes this apartment unique

The flat enjoys a privileged position in Cortina in every way - a great location (central, but just outside the very busy centre), stunning views and is a charming yet functional property.

Cortina itself has been visited for over a century by the aristocracy, the rich and the jet-set, though shot to international fame after it hosted the 1956 Winter Olympics. Today it continues to impress all visitors with its old world charm, excellent food, well dressed people and great skiing - and is one of Europe's top resorts.

Known as the 'Queen of the Dolomites,' Cortina sits at the heart of the UNESCO site that is the Dolomite mountain range (in the Eastern Alps), known for its soaring peaks that are given their rose-gold appearance by the limestone rock they are made of.

Cortina offers so many sporting activities, such as skiing, crosscountry skiing, skating, BASE jumping, rock-climbing, mountaineering, hiking, as well as cultural activities (the Dolomites are dotted with picturesque Tyrloese villages, castles and churches as well as battlefields of the frontline between in the Italians and Austrians in WW1), and of course its world-class restaurants, offering Venetian-Tyrolese food.

Lastly, Cortina is a great base from which to visit some of Italy's famous cities, such as Venice, Padua, Trieste, Udine and Treviso.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Lovely flat, in a great position with great views, and near the town centre too. Actually one of the best flats we've rented in Cortina.

A car, whilst not essential, is advisable, both for getting to Cortina and for moving around once there.

There is a good bus service passing Venice Mestre train station, that also passes Venice Marco Polo airport, to Cortina, called the Cortina Express, that then goes back as well. Around Cortina is the Dolomiti bus service which is included in the ski pass price, taking one to the slopes, and Faloria cable car is about a 4 minute walk from the house too. The nearest airports are Venice and Treviso (between them served by BA, Easyjet and Ryanair from London). Late Check In: Please note in some cases for late check-ins, an additional late fee might have to be paid as someone will have to be called in out of working hours. After 8pm, €25; after 11pm €45. This will be settled with the person directly.

Apartment in Pecol, Cortina D'Ampezzo

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location, traditional ambience and cosiness of Luca's apartment. A walk down the hill to nearby reataurants was a pleasure, as were regular deer sitings in the garden. The living/dining area was convivial and has awesome views; bedrooms are characterful and comfortable. Communication with Luca was prompt and helpful. This is an apartment we would return to.

Perfect base for exploring

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the apartment, which has amazing views of the beautiful mountains. We enjoyed coming home to this cosy space after a busy day on the slopes. Luca was great, answering our questions both before and during our stay. The apartment is close to town, where there are many nice places to eat.

We would recommend this apartment as a great base for both summer and winter activities.

Charming apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend this apartment, and this location. We came for the hiking - Cortina is well-situated for summer hikes of all abilities and the trails are simply beautiful.The apartment was easy to find and is located just outside the main town in a quiet residential area with stunning views onto the surrounding mountains. Only 5 mins on foot into the charming resort of Cortina with plenty of places to eat and relax.

This is a well-maintained apartment, furnished to a high standard. It is spacious too - we were a group of five and the apartment felt a good size for our group. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the bathrooms were newly refurbished.

The owner was very helpful - we had a minor problem with the window blinds and he arranged someone to come and fix it straight away.

Charming appartment in a quiet neighbourhood just outside the centre - but only 5 mins in foot to Cortina. Great views from the balcony over the mountains. The appartment is well equipped, bathrooms are lovely, bedrooms comfortable. The owner was helpful. Highly recommended.

Perfect summer holiday retreat in Cortina

  • 5 of 5

Apartment in Cortina was indeed cozy and perfect for our summer holiday in the Dolomites. The owner is prompt in responding and genuinely wants you to enjoy his love of Cortina and experience it's beauty. The views of the mountains from the apartment are breathtaking and beckon you to explore. So many walking treks to choose from and too little time. Cinque Torre with Rifugio Nuvolau set you on top of the view while Lake Sorapis trek start point is just a few km up the road and should not be missed for the perfect Alpine lake with milky turquoise waters. If you have interest in fly fishing, set up a guided trip with Angelo Piller of Flyfish Dolomiti in Tai di Cadore. Lago Scin Restaurant is just a few km up the road and provides excellent food with a cozy atmosphere. This apartment and this town should not be missed with your time in Italy.
