La Villa is part of the locality of Badia and is located halfway through Val Badia at the foot of Gardenazza and Piz La Ila. This locality is world-famous due to the “Gran Risa” ski slope, which every year is venue for Worldcup competitions in alpine skiing. This ski slope directly leads into the centre of La Villa. Thus every year in December “La Ila” becomes a lively centre.
However, the village is a perfect starting point for walks in the Dolomites or trips to Val Gardena, Val di Fassa, Val Pusteria or Cortina. If you would like to experience a thrill you can enjoy a bird’s eye view of Alta Badia when paragliding above La Villa. Furthermore there are two keep-fit trails in Gran Ega and Gnates.
Our recommendation: visit the antique castle of Ciastel Colz, located in the historical part of the village.
