We chose Baita Deona because we love the mountains and wanted to experience the Dolomites. We were not disappointed. Cibiana Pass is stunning! The staff at Baita Deona were kind and friendly, and tried hard to communicate with us, since we only speak English. Despite this, they anticipated our needs and filled our requests. There is a small restaurant and bar onsite and wood decks for enjoying the sun and mountain views. A simple breakfast is included, Rooms are clean and spacious with a large window/door facing the mountains. Beds are firm with quality linens. At the beginning of October, this is one of the only lodging/eating options in the Pass. It is a 20-minute drive on a steep, winding road to the nearest town. Stay put and enjoy hiking or cycling on the trails just outside your door and the hospitality of Baita Deona. I highly recommend this serene setting.
