House Settari is one of the summer villas that were built at the Dreikirchner mountain at the beginning of the 20th century. Originally the historic house was the home of Johanna Settari’s large family. The idyllic apartments that have been created in the old rooms are named after four of Johanna’s 15 children. They are kept in the style of former times but offer (unlike the nearby Hotel Briol which is also owned by the family) modern amenities like bathrooms, heating and small kitchens. The ground floor and first floor feature two apartments each which are entered via a common room (with library and fireplace). The static structure consisting of green painted steel girders has deliberately remained visible as a design element. The apartments have large balconies with magnificent views of the Dolomites.In addition, in the former utility rooms in the basement there are three rooms accessible from the outside with a view of the valley which all have their own bathroom as well as a terrace.
Getting to Haus Settari is not easy : The house is situated at 1100 meters above sea level and as there is no paved road it can only be reached on foot or with the taxi jeep. But for the effort you will be more than compensated with unspoiled nature and tranquility. On request food will be supplied to the house and if you do not want to cook, you can also eat in the main house Briol.
