The Sawtoothed peaks of the Dolomites surround San Lorenzo Mountain Lodge, a 16th-century maso (South Tyrolean farmhouse) that recently opened to guests. The former hunting lodge—set on 42 forested acres above the Italian town of Brunico and across a valley from the Kronplatz ski resort—underwent a two-year, $1.9 million renovation following its purchase by two prominent fashion-industry leaders. Modern conveniences, including an under-floor heating system hidden by larch and stone, now complement the centuries-old charm of the lodge, which rents to just one party at a time.

San Lorenzo sleeps as many as six guests in three en suite bedrooms and another four in an adjacent room with a pair of bunks. After a day spent hiking or skiing, visitors can relax in intimate lounges or soak in an outdoor hydrotherapy pool. The lodge’s petite spa includes a whirlpool, a steam room with a built-in color-therapy system, and a sauna fashioned from ancient spruce. Massage therapists, chefs, and sommeliers are available on request; San Lorenzo’s VIP service package includes daily breakfast and dinner, afternoon tea, and aperitifs.
