1965 – short before Christmas Ilda Pizzinini, originating from Maso Rungg in Badia, inaugurates La Stüa in San Cassiano. After the construction in 1961 of the first mountain lift (initially a single chairlift), San Cassiano attracts more and more tourists, many of whom choose La Stüa thanks to the cordial family management of Ilda.
1974-1979 – The first renovation is carried out: now all the rooms have private bathrooms. The bar and the dining room change their look and become more comfortable and modern without losing their characteristic charm. In the hotel management there are some changes as well. In 1979 Ilda’s niece, Rita, joins her aunt in the hotel administration.
1998-2001 – It’s time for the second renovation: the Hotel receives its own wellness area with sauna, Turkish bath, whirlpools, Kneipp bath, cold water plunge pool and relaxation zone. The roof is completely rebuilt too, rising up and making space for the new rooms in the attic. The dining room becomes bigger, followed by the creation of a playroom and the installation of a lift. Starting from 2000 Rita and her husband Sauro undertake the task of running the Hotel while Ilda enjoys her well-deserved pension, though never retiring completely and always eager to provide her precious help to the young managers.
2016… - The Hotel’s mother, Ilda, has passed away, but Rita and Sauro, now with their sons Robert, Gabriele and Michele take good care of her beloved La Stüa. Further changes and improvements are planned for the nearest future, such as construction of a ski/bike storage, enlargement of the dining room, renovation of the rooms (some of them will gain a veranda) and adding some other apartments.
