Chalet Hotel Diamant

Dolomiti Superski - KRONPLATZ, San Martino in Badia, Italy

Chalet Hotel Diamant is an ideal base for skiing in Dolomiti Superski. The area provides an opportunity to ski more miles in a week than anywhere in the world and includes three World Cup race venues, a glacier, and some of the longest black runs in Europe.

We offer hosted skiing several days of the week,  including the Sella Ronda (a 56km marathon around the Sella Massif), the Hidden Valley with Cinque Torri, and around Kronplatz. Other excursions such as the Great War Tour, or to the Marmolada glacier may also be possible (subject to conditions and availability).

The Diamant is well situated for activities besides skiing and boarding. Guests preferring not to go skiing will find plenty to see and do. There are several places where it would be possible to meet up with skiers for lunch, and numerous walking routes nearby. We can arrange excursions for snow-shoe walking, tobogganing or horse-drawn sleigh rides in a beautiful national park, tandem paragliding, fat biking, ice climbing, indoor climbing, ice skating or curling on a frozen lake, and more! Please enquire for full details.

The hotel is located in the centre of the village of San Martino in Badia. The small village has a bank with cashpoint, a grocery shop, three restaurants and a bar. On the hill above the village is a mediaeval castle now housing a museum about local culture and history.

Local bus routes connect San Martino with nearby Corvara (passing through Badia and La Villa), and the town of Brunico in the opposite direction. , There is a weekly market in Brunico as well an exceptional Christmas market from late November to early January.

Travel and transfers

At Mountainsun Ltd we do not arrange travel, but we can supply a wealth of information about getting to Chalet Hotel Diamant.  We’ll be happy to discuss travel options with you and provide contact details for travel companies.

By Road

The distance from Calais is approx 800 miles (1,280 km). We suggest a route passing through Luxembourg (cheaper fuel) into Germany (long sections of motorway with no speed limit and low tolls), crossing into Austria and finally Italy.


For the ultimate luxury journey by train, there is the Venice Simplon Orient Express!  There are also more economical options of overnight sleepers from Paris to Venice and to Innsbruck, some of these trains would fit with our transfer services.

By air

There are several airports serving the area, but we find often Venice is the best for flight prices and choice of routes, plus you can easily fit in some sightseeing. We also offer set timed transfers from Innsbruck airport which is a shorter journey and can allow additional ski time.

Budget airlines Easyjet, Ryanair and Monarch operate to Venice airports at unbeatable prices, and there are also scheduled flights and chartered ski flights.  Easyjet and Monarch fly to Innsbruck.

Please contact us to find out which airline flies from where in the UK.  Flights often cost less than £150 per person return, including tax.

In instances where we have a commitment to other guests, or are unable to wait, we will assist with arranging alternative transport but the cost will be borne by the client. We offer a transfer connection indemnity scheme so additional charges would not apply in these situations.
