Vacation between tradition and present
Exclusive – exceptional – unique. Living in a lovingly restored castle.
Enjoy the flair of a historic property without renouncing modern comfort.
Arrive, breathe, relax
High above the Adige Valley, in the heart of the historic centre of Fai della Paganella, we find the “Ciastel”, as the inhabitants of the 980-strong community affectionately call the 17th century hunting lodge. Four centuries have passed since the Counts of Spaur first set out from here to hunt.
The shutters of the Castello open with a gentle creak. The first mountain sun and the fresh air of the Brenta massif flood the room. The day begins charmingly with a view out of the window, across battlements and meadows, up to the striking silhouette of the Paganella. Nature has meant well with the small municipality of Fai on the sunny plateau of Altopianio Paganella in dreamlike Trentino.
Hiking, climbing or winter sports
In Fai, nature has always exerted a magical attraction on visitors. Past historic farms, out onto the green meadows and up to the hiking trails of the Paganella and the via ferrata of the Brenta massif, guests are drawn during the summer months.
In winter, the snow-covered Paganella with its extensive ski slopes invites you to winter sports in one of the largest ski resorts in Trentino.

The history of Castello Fai
Built in 1620 as the summer residence and hunting lodge of the Counts Spaur-Altmetz, the residence in Fai della Paganella always remained in the possession of the family.
In the years 2017-2018 we put a lot of love and expertise in the restoration of the apartment and the facade. The old flair of the building should be preserved, as well as the original furnishings, which correspond to the rural character of the old residence.
Many of the antique pieces of furniture and ancestral images could be saved and restored from the woodworm. Now these pieces shine in fresh light and fascinate every day anew. Every piece of furniture, every portrait tells us a story from the past. We would like to share this experience with our guests.
