Location
The Valcastello Chateau and Polo Club is located in the vicinity of Dobbiaco (Toblach in German), in the Alta Pusteria valley. Due to the closeness to the Austrian border and to the breath-taking view, Dobbiaco (1,256 m / 4,121’) is also called the Door to the Dolomites. The village does not only offer a healthy climate and many sports options in summer and winter. There is also an interesting cultural choice. For example, the Gustav Mahelr music weeks take place here since 1981. They are an international approved music festival in Mahler's summer-landscape, the Dolomites.

The Valcastello Chateau and Polo Club is conveniently located to nearby ski lifts such as Monte Elmo/Sexten (2km/1,2 miles), Plan de Corones/Kronplatz (25km/ 15miles) and Cortina D'Ampezzo (20km / 12,5miles). In summer, there is a large choice of hiking and biking trails starting from Dobbiaco/San Candido, Via Ferratas climbs, a 9-hole Golf course and much more.
