Luxury Ski Holidays Italy
If you are looking for a relaxing winter break then Italy is the destination for you. Renowned for its laid-back ambience, skiing in Italy places as much emphasis on long lunches and soaking up the sun as it does on actual skiing. Stretching along the full length of the Italian border, from Sauze d’Oulx in the west to the Dolomites in the east, Italian resorts vary as widely in their characteristics as they do in their location. Whether you are looking for quaint villages, fashionable towns or remote ski stations, you are sure to find the perfect luxury Italian ski chalet to suit your needs.
Home to more than 300 resorts, Italy boasts a number of vast ski areas, the most famous being the Dolomites. This impressive mountain range in the northeast of the Italian Alps has a number of awe-inspiring peaks, eighteen of which rise to more than 3,050 metres.
The Dolomites is also home to the Sella Ronda - a panoramic circular network of lifts and pistes around the Gruppo del Sella, a majestic limestone massif, taking in a host of ski regions including Val Gardena and Alta Badia. One of the most well-known resorts in the Dolomites is Cortina d’Ampezzo, an ancient mountain town with luxury chalets, elegant boutiques, gourmet restaurants, intimate wine bars and softly-lit nightclubs.
Away from the Dolomites, another popular resort is Cervinia, which is linked across the Swiss border with Zermatt. Stretching across Sauze d’Oulx, Sestriere and Claviere in Italy, and over the border to Montgenèvre in France, is the lift-linked Via Lattea area, also known as the Milky Way. Located in the Province of Turin, the area encompasses seven ski resorts of differing size and atmosphere with a scenic array of slopes and a number of towns and villages which are home to a series of luxurious ski chalets and apartments.
