In the Eggen Valley, vacation apartments represent an increasingly popular lodging option. Generally speaking, longer stays are more affordable in vacation apartments than in hotels. Of course, that's because, in a vacation apartment, you do the light housework yourself. Some of the modern apartments now offer all the up-to-date furnishings you'd expect to find (e.g., automatic dishwashers, etc.). Many visitors to the Dolomites and South Tyrol also appreciate the fact that, with vacation apartments, you enjoy more flexibility and don't have to bother yourself with fixed hotel schedules.
