Campolasta - Villa

At Campolasta, the Val Sarentino divides into its two rear side valleys: the Valdurna Valley and the Val di Pennes with the Pennes Pass

The villages of Campolasta (Astfeld) and Villa (Nordheim) are located into the valley shortly after the main village of Sarentino. First comes Villa: The noble Northeimers once ruled there, and today the St. Nicholas Parish Church is worth seeing, which houses two remarkable Madonna statues. It is a pietà on the right side altar and an Assunta with folded hands. Villa then merges almost seamlessly into Campolasta, therefore the two places are usually mentioned together.

In the centre of Campolasta, between the inns, the bank, the kindergarten and the school, stands the village church. It is dedicated to St. Erasmus and looks quite unimpressive from the outside. Inside, however, there are some beautiful ceiling paintings to see. The eye of God at the entrance, venerated by angels, is the symbol of the Holy Trinity. In Campolasta it is time for a decision: Here the Sarentino Valley divides into its side valleys. The Valdurna Valley branches off to the northeast and leads past the Reinswald hiking area to Lake Valdurna. The second valley, the Val di Pennes, takes you to the alpine heights of the Passo Pennes and then down towards the town of Vipiteno.

If you want to spend your days in the peace and quiet of nature, you will find wonderful places around Campolasta and Villa. Protected by the Forcella Sarentina ridge, Mt. Cima Rodella and Mt. Sam, the landscape invites you to extensive tours. Hikes and MTB tours are complemented by rides on the blond Haflingers and horse-drawn carriage rides. Winter also leaves the decision up to you: The Reinswald Ski Area is located in the Valdurna Valley, while beautiful circular cross-country ski tracks and ski touring destinations can be found in the neighbouring valley, the Pennes Valley.
