Because together the strength multiplies

Our story confirms that being united is indispensable.
Together by vocation!

Since 1970, Hotel Santer has been run in the third generation by Godelieve and Herbert Santer. But already around 1860 there was a small guesthouse with a farm, called Villa Santer. The carefreeness, and thus satisfaction, of our guests is important to us. Particularly comfortable suites and rooms, the kitchen with local products and homemade recipes, the wellness area with two heated outdoor pools, saunas and traditional treatments, and recreational or sporting activities in the Dolomites - all of this is synonymous with holiday bliss!

A born hotelier and visionary
With his wife he transformed the small 5-room guesthouse into a 4-star hotel
Herbert Santer attended the hotel management school in Merano. Already in his youth, Herbert helped his parents a lot in the then small guesthouse Villa Santer. In 1970, he married Godelieve Vercruysse and took over his parents' business. Despite his busy work as a hotelier, Herbert Santer is always busy in the village and volunteers in various associations. Known as a tourism pioneer and visionary, he was the driving force and founder of the beautiful Nordic Arena cross-country stadium, but also the founder of the famous Gustav Mahler Music Weeks in Toblach.

Hotelier with a heart
From Belgium to Toblach for the love of Herbert and Santer
Born in Belgium, Godelieve is the beating heart of the family and the hotel. She grew up in Belgium in a catering business and graduated from hotel management school. When she came to Toblach on holiday, she met Herbert Santer and fell in love with him.
