The Starlight Room

Located at an altitude of 2,055m in Col Gallina, a short distance away from the busy and popular Cortina d’Ampezzo ski resort, the Starlight Room strikes a perfect balance between natural bliss and modern comfort. Created by Raniero Campigotto, the manager of Rifugio Col Gallina, this small room provides the ideal opportunity to enjoy the unique beauty of both the mountain landscape and of the night sky. Large glass walls on four sides of the room include the ceiling section above the bed, offering an unrestricted view of the surroundings. The landscape is dominated by the picturesque Dolomite mountains, a UNESCO World Heritage site featuring breathtaking views of snowy peaks and deep valleys. Guests can observe the mesmerizing ‘enrosadira’, the pink light of the evening sun setting the mountains alight in warm fiery tones and reddish glows. At night, the sky reveals its beauty in all its glory thanks to the setting with no light pollution, providing a rare opportunity for urban dwellers to see the sky as they have probably never seen it before.

The price for one night includes a four-course dinner with Cabernet wine, as well as a light breakfast which can be enjoyed just as the sun begins to suffuse the snowy mountain in warm pink hues. A thermostat allows guests to adjust the temperature to feel more comfortable and a playlist is also provided to enhance the ambience, but you can also bring your own music. Accessible by snowmobile, snowshoes, or fat bikes from the Rifugio Col Gallina, the Starlight Room offers a private and certainly unique experience, creating memories that will last a lifetime. You can book the room for one or two people here. Photography by Giacomo Pompanin.
