Val Gardena can boast another very important and honourable award. Recently, the Vitalpina Hotel Dosses in S. Cristina was awarded with the European Eco-label for Tourism (EU Ecolabel). According to the owners, this is the highest state award for environmentally conscious tourism companies.
"The eco-label is a voluntary system and we would like to demonstrate our commitment and responsibility for environmentally conscious business management by participating in it. In many areas our company has to meet strict requirements, which are independently audited. The implementation of the criteria and the optimizations in our company went very well with the support of Rainer Stifter, Managing Director of Energon, an environmental expert with many years of experience in tourism. Through these measures we hope to be able to offer our guests a pleasurable and comfortable stay and, at the same time, to optimize the use of resources and minimize negative environmental impacts", explain Helene and Oskar Turini, owners and operators of the ****S hotel.
The EU Ecolabel is the European Union's eco-label (EU Ecolabel) that distinguishes products and services that, while guaranteeing high performance standards, are characterised by a reduced environmental impact throughout their entire life cycle. The criteria of the EU Eco-label for tourism are designed to minimise the greatest environmental impact during the three life cycle phases of the service (purchase, provision, disposal). In particular, they aim to limit energy consumption and the preferential use of renewable energy sources, to limit water and waste consumption, to use substances and materials that are not harmful to the environment, to promote the regional economy and culture, and to promote environmental communication and education.
"In Italy, ISPRA - Istituto Superiore per la Protezione e la Ricerca Ambientale - regularly checks compliance with the 67 criteria. This ensures from the government side that we meet all requirements", underlined the owners. "This award is of course a special pleasure for us. We believe in it very much. It is an important recognition for our commitment to environmental awareness," concludes the Turini family.more...
- Football training camp U.S. Lecce in Val Gardena
In the period from 14th to 28th July 2019 the italian football team of the Unione Sportiva Lecce, playing in the italian Serie A, will make its summer retreat in S. Cristina in Val Gardena in the Dolomites. The optimal altitude in S. Cristina (1,300 - 1,400 m a.s.l.) offers the ideal conditions for the preparation of a successful season and the breathtaking mountain world will be the unique setting for the training camp of this high-level team. The football pitch in the Mulin da Coi sports area in S. Cristina is therefore the ideal training ground for this first-class football team. The players will train twice a day, from 9.30 to 11.30 and from 17.00 to 19.00.
During the summer training camp, a number of friendly matches will be organised with local football teams:
Saturday 20 July 2019 at 5.00 pm with the F.C. Gherdëina
Tuesday 23 July 2019 at 5.30 pm with the F.C. St. Georgen
Thursday 25 July 2019 at 5.00 pm with the Virtus Bolzano
Saturday 27 July 2019 (time and opponent to be defined)
Training and football matches are a highlight for guests and local football fans.
Many other national and international football clubs have already chosen Val Gardena for their summer retreat. These include Lazio, Cagliari, Hellas Verona, La Spezia, Ternana, Gallipoli and the English team of Leeds United.more...
- New UNESCO Dolomites panoramic balcony built in Val Gardena
In 2009, the Dolomites were recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the Puez-Odle Nature Park, a second vantage point has recently been built in the mountains up at a determined location. It is in the vicinity of the mountain station of the Col Raiser gondola lift, at an altitude of 2,200 metres, and is a panoramic balcony with a breathtaking view of the surrounding Dolomite peaks. From the viewing platforms one sees why the Dolomites are so extraordinary, i.e. the nature of the geological and landscape features.
The Mastlé - S. Cristina Val Gardena Panoramic Balcony, part of the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a project of the Provincial Authority for Nature Parks in collaboration with the municipality and the Tourism Association of S. Cristina.more...
