The Caldenave Refuge is located in a happy and pleasant position on a hill overlooking the two plains where domestic and wild animals live in harmony. The location of the refuge allows lovers of nature and historically valuable environments to go on more or less demanding excursions. Even those who simply love silence, peace and tranquility will find the surroundings of the refuge the right place to regenerate, rest and enjoy a dish of Alpine cuisine. The refuge is a stop on several Alte Vie. The building was created from an ancient, well-restored hut. It has 22 beds distributed in five rooms with common services. The restaurant offers simple and traditional dishes, prepared with genuine ingredients of local origin. Guido, the new manager, will help you discover the many secrets of the place.

Management / Ownership

After 20 years in the Dolomites, it is with great enthusiasm and energy that I begin this new adventure with my family, Alice, my wife, Edoardo, Gilda and Achille, our children. We think that the refuge is the mountaineer's home, we believe in the refuge as a place of receiving and sharing spaces, ideas, emotions and life.
