Mr & Mrs Smith have just returned from a stay at this boutique hotel in the Dolomites, and as soon as they've unpacked their ski jumpers and scarves, a full account of their luxury countryside break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick snapshot of DV Boutique Hotel & Spa in South Tyrol…
Even in high summer, it’s easy to get into the festive spirit at snug sanctuary DV Boutique Hotel. This cosy cabin sits close to the slopes in mountainous Madonna di Campiglio, a resort for seasoned skiers as well as beginners. From the outside, the timber structure is a classic chalet vision, but with a turreted twist.
Reclaimed wood lines the floors, walls and ceilings, with animal hides laid out here and there. The pine-covered restaurant will cater to the heartiest mountain appetite, with interesting dishes rolled out by the daring chef (he’s currently trialling alpine-fresh trout sashimi). Past the lobby, there’s an inviting lounge with a squashy sofa, patterned rug and wood-burning fire. There’s even a cigar room, for smoking that’s sheltered from the snow. The main aim is to keep guests warm and comforted from the snowy outdoors. Come in, dust off your boots and get defrosting. DV Boutique Hotel & Spwill take care of everything else.

We spent two nights at the DV Boutique Hotel and had a great time there. The hotel is beautiful, in a great location with unique interior design, a relaxing spa, professional massages, an excellent restaurant, and last but not least outstanding staff. We'll come back for sure.

Sarca is the best local restaurant we discovered. It's real home cooking so don't expect bells and whistles when it comes to decor or service, but the food is hearty, hefty South Tyrolian fare cooked by a real Italian mamma and served by her son. The stinco pork shank and trout from the local lake are a must. Cheap as chips too, if you know what to order. Le Roi is a cheap and cheerful pizza place – it's a tourist gaff but does what it does well.
