La Perla hotel showcases a flawless balance between cozy and contemporary in Italy's scenic Dolomites region.
The Alta Badia region in the Dolomites attracts serious skiers and hikers to its slopes and peaks, but lately, foodies are visiting this scenic area, thanks to a wealth of acclaimed restaurants. One of the best is La Stüa de Michil, in Corvara's family-owned La Perla, which has one Michelin star and demonstrates that the accolade doesn't have to signify stuffy or formal. The dining room is wood-paneled, lit with candles and decorated with antiques and original art. The intimate ambience is a perfect backdrop for Chef Spicocchi 's menus, which showcase organic, fair-trade and local products. This balance between cozy and contemporary is also reflected in the guest rooms with lively fabrics, warm wooden furnishings and views of the Dolomites' stunning limestone peaks.
