Interval International, a leading global provider of vacation services, has announced the affiliation of the Domina Golf and Ski Resort in Tarvisio. Situated in the Italian Alps in the northeast region of Friuli Venezia Giulia, the resort is on the borders of Italy, Austria and Slovenia. “This mountain resort will offer both 60 kilometres of alpine and cross country ski trails and an 18-hole golf course that overlooks the resort,” said Darren Ettridge, Interval International’s vice president for resorts sales and service for Europe, Middle East and Africa. “For those wanting a more relaxing experience, there will be a wellness centre where our members will be able to enjoy a variety of treatments.”
The resort is due to be completed in the summer of 2010 and amenities planned for the complex will consist of a restaurant, bar, spa, indoor pool and a sauna. Activities close by include horseback riding, mountain biking, climbing, tennis, fishing and paragliding. During the winter, visitors can enjoy horse-drawn sleigh rides and skiers can explore countless downhill and cross-countrytrails. In summer, Lake Raibl offers many water sports, including windsurfing, canoeing, rafting, hydrospeed and kayaking. The golf course has wide greens and spacious fairways and is surrounded by forest, which could result in challenging rounds for players.
“We decided to affiliate Domina Golf & Ski Tarvisio with Interval, not only to enhance the marketing tools available for our sales team at the point of sale but also because of its longstanding reputation for supporting its clients’ goals,” said Dr. Nicola Cighetti, managing director of Domina Vacanze. “
Set in a backdrop of snow-capped mountains, forests, lakes, valleys and sunny green lands, the town of Tarvisio attracts many tourists for skiing and snowboarding. It was host to the 2003 Winter Universiade, an international multi-sport event organized for university athletes by the International University Sports Federation, and was the site of the Women’s 2007 Alpine Skiing World Cup.
