Thanks in part to members of Dolomiti di Sesto forum, we just spent a few wonderful days in a very nice and personal Hotel Pension B&B outside of Toblach (Dobiacco).
I like To ask for some expert help and luck around July 6-9 (that's just before the high season). Traveling from Trieste toward Trento, San Martino di Castrozza looks like a beautiful stop, away from the lowlands heat.
Unfortunately, most Internet bookers advertise only the multi-story hotels. I don't need sauna, paid parking, or stiff shirted servizio. Would prefer to contact a small pensione or casa con camere libere directly if possible. Language is no problem.
