Holidays at Villnoess/Funes

Villnoess/Funes is not just a single town, it is the name for an entire valley. Villnoess/Funes is located in the Isarco Valley. The valley is 24 km long and one of the most beautiful Dolomite valleys. A holiday in the Villnoess/Funes valley means peace and recreation. The symbol is the Puez Odle Mountain Group with impressive rocks and mountain peaks. The valley includes six municipal districts and different hamlets: Tiso, San Valentino, San Giacomo, Colle, and Santa Maddalena. San Pietro is the main town of the valley.

The valley reaches from the gentle low-mountain ranges of the Isarco Valley with vineyards to the impressive mountain peaks of the Dolomites. The landscape is characterised by enchanting villages with vast meadows and small hamlets with traditional farms and warm South Tyrolean hospitality: a landscape, which has been preserved for centuries, and guarantees a relaxing holiday.

This holiday region features the Puez Odle Nature Park with an area of approximately 10,200 hectares and varied geological formations and minerals, which are typical for the region.

Mineral Museum
"Searching for stones" – this is the passion of Paul Fischnaller who presents his collection in the Mineral Museum in Tiso. During the course of the years his collection of minerals and crystals got bigger and bigger until he decided to share his findings with others by opening a Mineral Museum. The collection includes only stones and crystals that he found himself. He did not swap or buy any. The museum is definitely worth a visit.

In summer you can enjoy numerous hiking routes with alpine huts - a paradise for hikers and climbers. The valley also offers numerous possibilities for mountain-biking, paragliding, Nordic walking or horse riding.

In winter the numerous toboggan runs offer plenty of fun. Traditional huts spoil you with typical Tyrolean specialities. The valley also offers varied cross-country tracks in an unspoiled, romantic nature. Skiers find a small, family-friendly ski resort or they can go to the nearby Gardena Valley, Plose, Alpe di Siusi or the Gitschberg/Jochtal ski resorts to enjoy more demanding slopes. Furthermore, the valley offers snow-shoe hikes and ice skating rinks.

With the Mobilcard you can use the public transport in South Tyrol: trains, busses and cable cars, which are part of public transport, can be used without restrictions.
