It is thanks to our numerous and long-standing regular guests that the small guesthouse above Ortisei/St. Ulrich has become a unique 4-star hotel. In the fifties, it was great-grandfather, Marcello Rella who first fell in love with the enchanting Val Gardena/Grödnertal and his future wife, Maria, and then moved here from Trentino. In 1977, the foundation stone was laid for a new building on the hill above Ortisei/St. Ulrich. After inheriting this property from his father, Marcello, grandfather, Giovanni Rella, and grandmother, Margherita Moroder, opened Pension Piciuël in the summer of 1978, which they then managed with passion, common sense, and pragmatism. What began small, soon enjoyed great success. It is thanks to our numerous and long-standing regular guests that the small guesthouse above Ortisei/St. Ulrich has now become a unique hotel of 4-star niveau.
