Rifugio Stella Alpina Spiz Piaz is located at 1,960 m in altitude, in the stunning Conca del Gardeccia, in the foothills of the imposing Catinaccio and the majestic peaks of the Larsech. An ideal departure point for trips which extend from the Torri del Vajolet (Vajolet Towers) to the Coronelle, from the Mugoni to the Cigolade and the Ciampedie plateau, through the Valle del Vajolet and as far as the famous Lake Antermoia.

Recently refurbished, the refuge is able to host up to 50 people, offering cosy rooms supplied with linen or comfortable 8-bed dorms. The refuge's resident chef, Stella Alpina Spiz Piaz, offers typical, authentic Ladin specialities and new gourmet dishes to suit all taste buds, as well as a variety of homemade cakes.

In addition to extending a warm welcome, the refuge, which is run by the Riz family, aims to offer you a great service, but above all to enrich your stay with human kindness and genuine friendship.


    Peaceful, authentic and homely atmosphere.

    Point of departure for a variety of excursions, vie ferrate (iron rope paths) and mountain paths.

    Ideal for groups and those who are passionate about good cuisine.
