The Alpine Dream in the Italian Dolomites with Edelweiss.Re

Europe Uncategorized

Recognised primarily as a ski paradise among ski enthusiasts, the imposing mountain range of the Dolomites, a treasure trove of some of the world’s most majestic sceneries, is also globally renowned for its rich culture, history, and cuisine.




The natural surroundings make it much easier to forget any daily distractions, like constantly checking your social media. Simply by living in the Dolomites, people can enjoy life and re-focus on themselves.


In what is dubbed as the heart of the Dolomites, Val Badia, real estate is seen as a solid, profitable, and long-lasting investment for international and national second-home buyers. Although the current regional law reserves 100% of the new developments to residents in the province of Bolzano, translating into limited stock for non-residents, which has also led to an increase in the prices per sq.m. surpassing 10.000€ per sq.m. in 2021, the Val Badia remains a sought-after area for its quality of life and natural wonders among property investors.


The valley’s appeal is also enhanced from its vicinity to the glamourous Cortina d’Ampezzo, home of the upcoming Winter Olympics Milano – Cortina 2026 and Venice’s and Treviso’s airports. 


Edelweiss.Re is a well-established real estate and interior design practice led by Edward Mazzer, CEO and Founder, based in the charming town of Colfosco with a comprehensive portfolio of luxury properties. In recent years, thanks to the huge success in the Dolomites, the company has broadened its horizons to two other UNESCO World Heritage sites: the hills of Prosecco and Venice.


“While the world continues to grips with the Covid-19 pandemic, we at Edelweiss.Re have been working hard to reinvent ourselves, starting from the re-design of our website, and keep up with all the changes undergone, challenging the traditional idea of the real estate by introducing wide-range yet tailored services,” says Mazzer.


Among them stands out the “bespoke house” service which allows clients to build their home from scratch, mapping out how they want to live.


“With the “bespoke home” service, clients will truly have the chance to decide everything they wish for their home, from fixtures to fittings to even smaller details, such as the door handles. Also, by teaming up with our interior designers, we will be able to harmoniously blend the traditional atmosphere of the alpine world with a unique yet sustainable modern design,” continues Mazzer.


As part of the Dolomiti Superski, one of the world’s largest ski circuits with 1,200 kilometres of slopes across 12 ski regions, the picture-perfect sceneries make the Badia Valley one of the most idyllic escapes to live in, with plenty of must-see sporting events, such as the men’s Alpine Ski World Cup races.


The endless ski trails in the winter season and the world-class hiking and mountain biking opportunities in the summer set this region apart. During summer, one can also take in the spectacle of the Maratona dles Dolomites (eng. Dolomites Marathon), one of the biggest Italian Granfondo bicycle races, or simply wander around.


So, get in touch with Edelweiss.Re Real Estate & Design and get to live your Alpine dream. An English-Italian speaking staff will be pleased to guide you throughout your journey at discovering your dream home among the “pink mountains.”
