That the story begins ...............

It was 1962 when Gianni Buganza and Erminia Bardini bought a little land south of Vigo di Fassa to build the Piccolo Hotel.

Gianni and Erminia had arrived in Val di Fassa already in the early 1950s to realize their dream: to have a hotel all in the heart of the Dolomites. They came from Borgofranco on the Po, a small village in the province of Mantua.

Since then, the Dolomites have become their home and their passion. Gianni has explored every corner of these mountains. Erminia has learned the most traditional recipes of these places and will propose them together with the best dishes of Italian cuisine.

In 50 years of activity, the hotel has always maintained the warm and welcoming atmosphere of family management, as it was in the dreams of Gianni and Erminia, thanks also to the precious help of her daughter Elena, generous Gianpaolo Barbacetto and a very staff prepared.
