Your hotel in the Dolomites – How it all began...


The history of the La Majun begins a long time ago, and is woven in to the history of the Ladin culture. The grandfather of manager Natalie Mellauner was the village blacksmith of La Villa in the 1930s. Back then, life in the mountains was very simple and full of deprivations. After the death of Giovanni Rinna, the Rinna family had to somehow make ends meet. In those days, women couldn't take over a blacksmith shop – which was considered typical "man's work." As a consequence, in the early-1960s, La Majun opened its first two guest rooms, which were rented for a few weeks per year to outsiders. The grandmother, Giuditta, and her five children would live during those weeks in the house garage, and would split the work in their little bed&breakfast amongst themselves. After school, Roberta (now the senior manager) would help out in the kitchen while her aunt served the guests Ladin barley soup, homemade "Schlutzkrapfen," and delicious meat dishes prepared using game meats from the forests of the Dolomites. Over the decades, the La Majun grew until it acquired its current form. The hotel is still a family-operated business. Three generations live and work every day to ensure that their guests enjoy an authentic vacation experience. The bond between the family members is what has made the La Majun what it is today: A 4-star superior hotel in the Dolomites.

Our family's philosophy


Hard work and a vision were the key factors in making a little bed & breakfast in La Villa into an authentic and comfortable hotel. A hotel offering the warmth and sense of security of a home. On the other hand, dynamic thinking and action are the hallmarks of the La Majun today. The goal is not to stand still, but rather to keep pace with the possibilities which the Dolomites and the culture of Alta Badia offer and to help our guests take advantage of them so as to ensure that their vacation is a memorable one.
