The Baita (Mountain Chalet) Bai De Dones is situated near to the start of the modern Cinque Torri chair lift, next to the ski slopes, along the pathway of the Great War Ski Tour.
Bai de Dones is the name of the nearby romantic tarn, populated according to legend by the mythical Anguànes, creatures with cloven goats’ hooves who served the God Sylvanus.
Great care is taken over the gastronomy. In winter, Grandma Alba prepares tasty typical dishes. The speciality of the house is game: you must try the wild boar, the venison (both deer and roe deer) and the hare with home made pasta or with polenta and mushrooms from the woods. Not to speak of the local dishes from Ampezzo, such as red “casunziei” with beetroot or the green ones with spinach and ricotta cheese, which can be sampled on the spacious sun terrace or in the restaurant.
In summer the Baita Bai De Dones is the point of departure and arrival for many excursions, including the visit to the trenches and emplacements of the open-air museum of the Great War.
Alba serves her guests drinks, tempting sandwiches, rolls and toasted sandwiches, ice creams and other desserts.
Not to be missed are the Sachertorte, the Linzertorte, the classic apple cake and the apple or apricot strudel.
Clients have the use of a spacious car park, and services are provided for those with disabilities.
