A ski holiday in Campitello gives you a lovely quiet and quaint Italian ski resort in one of the most beautiful ski areas in the world. Campitello is located within the Dolomiti Superski (1200km of piste) with its stunning rock formations and amazing scenery, and to top it off you can also link into the Sella Ronda ski circuit with ease via skiing over to Selva by skiing over to Arabba from the neighbouring resort of Canazei. The valley in which Campitello is located is called Val di Fassa (170km of piste) and you will sometimes see Campitello ski holidays listed as ski holidays in Val di Fassa instead.
