Despite the date on the calendar, spring has not yet sprung in many regions, so you still have time to squeeze in one more wintry Alpine vacation before the snow melts.

In the village of San Cassiano, in the heart of the Dolomites, the Rosa Alpina Hotel & Spa has opened a brand new, 1,700-square-foot penthouse, designed by Italian architectural studio Vudafieri-Saverino Partners.

The new penthouse, on the fourth floor of the hotel, features three suites and a lounge with a fireplace, a private wellness area (including a sauna with mountain views), a bar and kitchen.

The large panel windows offer an extraordinary view of the majestic mountain peaks and surrounding landscape.

Architects Tiziano Vudafieri and Claudio Saverino used traditional materials and contemporary design elements, and furniture pieces by Tom Dixon, Edra, Fornasetti, and more. The goal, according to a statement, was to create a warm, soft space that invited guests to relax in luxury.

Although it looks heavenly in winter, the hotel and spa is a tempting destination in other seasons as well. During the colder months, visitors flock to the San Cassiano to ski, snowshoe, and ice climb. In summer, hiking, mountain biking, and golf are popular activities.
