Welcome to House VITUS anno 1530

House VITUS is located 1600 m above sea level overlooking St. Magdalena/Santa Maddalena Village at the valley head of Gsies/Casies Valley. Its high position on the hillside makes it possible to enjoy a beautiful view to the northern Dolomites. It is also an excellent starting point for hikes, mountain hikes and ski touring.

You will be able to enjoy a view over the valley head of St. Magdalena/Santa Maddalena, the peaks framing Gsies/Casies Valley as well as the Dolomites of Prags/Braies Valley.

The house was actually built twice. The original farmhouse building - called Veidler - was erected between 1533 and 1536. Over 500 years later a “rescue campaign” was needed to safe the structure. In 2012 the house was rebuild for a second time using a local technic. It is a log house with squared timbers and simple saddle notches using the original house’s timber above a new, masoned basement floor.
