We came to vacation at the Dolomites Ranch all the way from Florida! I do not think we could have survived our vacation without the help of Federico. He is an absolute wonderful human being! Federico was helping us even before we left Florida from advice on attractions we should see, to advice about what to expect for weather and packing. He is there for you as much or as little as you want, don't be afraid to ask! Federico is a man of all trades, quite impressive! (420 Friendly) The 50 acres of property are beyond beautiful. The pictures are no comparison to how beautiful the land, chalet and scenery are in person. Our favorite part about staying here was waking up and seeing the mountains right outside as the sun was rising. We are already trying to plan our next trip to stay here! Although we didn't book a dinner with Federico, I would highly recommend it! We definitely want to try it next time. We did get a chance to try the Dolomites special cocktail...DELICIOUS! The ranch can only be accessed by dirt road, 4WD is recommended, but we did it in a Kia Soul (maybe not in the mud though). It probably took about 25-30 minutes at 15 mph to get down to the main road that heads into San Luis. From there it was about 20 minutes to Fort Garland; 60 to Alamosa (Walmart); 60 minutes to Taos or Red River, New Mexico. We cannot thank Federico enough for all he did while we stayed at the Dolomites Ranch. Looking forward to staying here again. Thanks Federico! - Alicia
There are so many wonderful things to say about this place! The gorgeous scenery, the extremely clean chalet, the amazingly comfortable beds, and the unmatched hospitality, just to name a few! This was our first time to book on VRBO and we couldn't not be happier! Federico was a fantastic host throughout the entire experience. The communication prior to our arrival was extremely helpful with regards with packing and travel, and upon arrival it felt as though we were staying with family! When we arrived he had the fire going and the chalet was warm and inviting, the same was true for our entire visit. Federico's knowledge of the area, the landscape, the attractions, and the weather helped take most of the guesswork out if this winter vacation for us. It was wonderful having someone at our disposal to ask for advice. The chalet was beautiful! Extremely clean and well maintained, comfortable, cozy, and really felt like home! The big dining table allowed room for not only eating, but for the playing of board games and cards after dinner, and the beds with their warm wonderful sheets were very welcoming after a day in the snow. We could not be more pleased with this place or with our host. WE will DEFINITELY recommend Federico and his spectacular chalet to all of our friends and family!
