Base town/village for day hikes in Dolomites

Hello Chat,

6 of us are looking to basing ourselves in an Airbnb in Dolomites and do day hikes - (not hut-to-hut hiking due to varied hiking ability). Would appreciate any recommendations on best places to stay.

Prefer location with - 1/ Best views of mountains 2/ Need a place convenient for cooking ourselves as some have dietary restrictions. 3/ Convenience to get there from Venice or other major city. 4/Large airbnbs available to rent. 4/ Prefer to stay in a small town/village with decent food options as well.

Thanks in advance.
