La Villa is the most centrally located village in Alta Badia. The village is located at the bottom of Gardenaccia and Piz La Ila mountains amidst an enchanting alpine landscape. The Puez-Odle and Fanes-Senes-Braies nature parks preserve the peaceful and harmonic atmosphere in this area.
La Villa, in the Ladin language called La Ila, is located in the immediate vicinity of 54 lift facilities and 130 km of ski slopes, and is directly connected to the Sella Ronda a panoramic route leading over 4 Dolomite passes around the Sella Mountain massif. This route attracts many mountain fans during all seasons.
The visitors especially like to come in winter: every year, the best skiers in the world participate at the Ski World Cup on the Gran Risa slope.
Two artistically important buildings can be found in the older part of the village: the parish church and Castel Colz, which is also known under the name "Residenz Rubatsch".
