The Thöni-Gander host family

We’re so pleased that you’ve found us – a warm welcome from the Thöni-Gander family! We’re here for you.


Ortles/Ortler hospitality since 1875

Ortles/Ortler has left its mark on Stelvio Hotels in two respects. King Ortles/Ortler, the majestic giant of rock and ice, is our backdrop. But Ortler was also the surname of Ludwig, the great-grandfather of ski legend Gustav Thöni, who built the “Zur schönen Aussicht” guesthouse in Trafoi in 1875. We’re the fifth generation to dedicate themselves to hospitality. And the sixth is now growing up at Hotel Bella Vista.

Petra Maria

Petra manages the hotel and leads the team of Stelvio Hotels.
She’s always there if you need assistance or a tip: open, warm, and positive, she creates holiday happiness from the very first moment.


Stephan, Petra’s husband, samples fine wines with you during his wine tasting sessions and shows you his favourite spots on hikes together.
He also loves going on tours up Passo dello Stelvio/Stilfserjoch …


Petra’s mother Ingrid takes care of your well-being with lots of charm.
With many years of experience as a hotelier, nothing escapes her notice – not even the tiniest detail.


And then there’s ski legend Gustav Thöni.
In winter, Petra’s father gives you expert tips for getting the most out of your skiing experience, and in summer he’s in charge of our barbecue evenings.


It wouldn’t be possible without our team.

If you feel right at home at Stelvio Hotels, much of that is down to our team. Petra, Carmen, Katharina, Susanne and Jasmine are the reception team, the friendly voices on the telephone and dynamic assistance at the reception. Our kitchen team wields their wooden spoons in the Bella Vista kitchen and delights you with refined Alpine-Mediterranean delicacies. Anna, Samuele e Matthias serve you at the bar and in the dining room at Hotel Bella Vista. The expert team in the Bear Club care for and entertain the exuberant gaggle of children. And many other dedicated people work hard every day to ensure that you can enjoy a carefree holiday with us – it wouldn’t be possible without them.
