Luxury Chalets Via Lattea

Superb skiing amidst an exciting melange of contemporary and traditional Alpine life.

Comprised of seven outstanding resorts on the ‘Milky Way’ network, the skiing possibilities in Via Lattea are countless. The skiing area includes Sestriere, Sauze d’Oulx, Oulx, Sansicario, Cesana, Pragelato and Claviere, as well as the French Montgenèvre. Located in the Province of Turin, this region is rich in winter sport history, not least because Via Lattea was one of the primary host areas for the Turin 2006 Winter Olympic Games. A combination of the warm, friendly ambience typical of Italy and the classic French style and sophistication makes for all-round perfection both on and off the slopes.

With over 212 runs connected by 69 efficient lifts the ski area is extensive. 400 km of perfectly pisted slopes is the ideal mountain escape for any winter sports enthusiast. The scenic array that can be seen from the top of the slopes is enough to take anyone’s breath away; looking down on the meandering valley the traditional villages become obvious next to the more cosmopolitan towns. This blend of old and new means that guests can enjoy the culture and heritage of the region, while also being able to indulge in the luxury of the modern age.

Watch winter sport at the highest level or take the time relax in a world class spa

The towns and villages are home to an abundance of top class hotels and luxury chalets, alongside which is a vast collection of exquisite restaurants serving a multitude of both French and Italian delicacies. Amongst these are lively bars that play host to the après scene, so guests can enjoy a cold beer after a long day of skiing. There is also a variety of fantastic shops, ranging from designer boutiques, to the best ski wear shops as well as stalls selling traditional hand crafted goods.  

2016 saw the Ski World Cup take place in Sestriere, this region traditionally holding numerous world class races and winter sports events. However, those wanting to take a break from the slopes can indulge in a relaxing spa day, both Sestriere and Bardonecchia being home to a host of wonderful saunas and pools. The Olympic sized ice skating rink in Bardonecchia is also one to note for a family outing in case of bad weather.
