The beginnings and beautiful memories
The story of one of the oldest hotels in Corvara
At the time in 1961 when Rita and Giuseppe came to live in Corvara, there was a totally different atmosphere here. Ciasa Pradat was being built in the green and sun-drenched Pescosta district, at the foot of the Sassongher and the Col Pradat. At the time, it was a private dwelling with five rooms which could be rented. Giuseppe owned a small building company and Rita had been working in tourism for a few years. The two of them delighted in opening up their house to those wanting to spend their holidays in the Dolomites. Rita did the cooking, cleaning, and generally spoiled her guests.
They extended the house in 1966. In the December of the same year, Hotel Pradat was opened and the first non-family members of staff were appointed. Over the years, further extensions to the hotel were built without however sacrificing its Alpine character or its family atmosphere.
And even today, Mamma Rita incorporates the good spirit of the house and is passing on her passion for hospitality to her two daughters Paulina and Christina, who never fail to support her work in the hotel.
