Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

If you are looking for a convenient hotel close to the slopes, look no further than Hotel Cà Fiore. The Campo Smith lift is just 200 metres away, so you can be on the mountain in no time at all. The hotel itself is popular with British guests who love the fact the staff go out of their way to ensure everyone has a great holiday. The décor throughout is a typical mountain style with natural woods and nice open spaces, inside and out. We particularly love the fireplace in the restaurant and on a warn sunny afternoon, the terrace is a great place to sit back and enjoy some après drinks.  

The centre of Bardonecchia is about 700 metres from the hotel and a nice stroll to help stretch out the legs. After exploring the shops, restaurants and bars, if you don't have the energy to do the walk home, you can always jump on the resort bus which does the rounds.  

The hotel has its own wellness area equipped with a sauna and three relaxing whirlpools, perfect if you need a bit of chill time. Don't get too comfy however as you certainly don't want to miss out on your four course evening meal severed up in the hotels lovely restaurant. Once suitably stuffed you can retire to the bar for a few drinks before settling down for the evening in one of the 34 hotel guest rooms. 

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 30 mins by coach from Turin airport.

Bardonecchia

The small resort of Bardonecchia sits right on the border between France and Italy, making it Italy’s westernmost town at the heart of the Alps. In 2006 it hosted the Turin Winter Olympics snowboarding competitions, and still includes many features from the one-time-only event.

Made up of 3 areas- Campo Smith, Melezet and Jafferau, there is over 100km of piste to tackle in the area, all linked by free buses. The majority of the pistes in the area are a close mix of easy cruising blue runs, and some red runs that offer more of a challenge. The resort is quiet and relatively uncongested with other skiers and snowboarders so it is easy to enjoy your time on the snow uninterrupted.

For adrenaline seeking skiers, Bardonecchia has 5 black runs to take on. For flair filled flips and tricks, the Melezet area has a fun freestyle snow park, featuring an Olympic half pipe from 2006 (open when snow levels allow), 80 rails and jibs and 20 jumps. You don't have to be Shaun White to enjoy the park, it is fun for first time flippers as well as snow park pro's.  

Off the pistes, one of Bardonecchia's highlights is the excellent array of restaurants. Restaurants serve up delicious Italian comfort food that is not to be missed, and for a small resort there is a huge variety of venues on offer. Après-ski culture is on the quiet side, attracting smaller crowds who want to socialise and take it easy. But if you’re in the mood for some classic live music and dancing in your ski boots, then Chesal bar and restaurant at the top of the Melezet-Chesal chair lift hosts ‘Crazy Chesal’ après-ski from 14:30 onwards. Also enjoy a visit to Haralds Ski Restaurant Bar at Campo Smith, great food, drinks and easy to walk to rather than taking lifts. 

For a smoother in resort experience, we recommend pre-booking the following before you travel; Lift passes, ski equipment hire and/or tuition.

Things to Do

Bardonecchia restaurants, food and drink

One of Bardonecchia’s secret delights is the impeccable quality of the food and mountain restaurants on offer in the resort. Delicious Italian cuisine, the food on offer in Bardonecchia is excellent and you can expect some hearty regional classics.

Chesal restaurant is marked on the map at the Melezet mid-station and is notably very tasty, as is Ristorante Pizzeria Waikiki at the base of Melezet, overlooking the snow park. Try the excellent Haralds Ski Restaurant Bar located at Campo Smith, great food and drinks, enjoy as long and late as you like as you can walk here and not rely on lifts to get back down. 

 

Bardonecchia après, bars, clubs and nightlife

Bardonecchia celebrates a much more relaxed and quieter après ski lifestyle compared to some of the other resorts in Italy and just over the border in France. There is still live music and dancing (on or off the table - up to you!) to be had at Chesal at the end of the day, hence the après ski hour being dubbed ‘Crazy Chesal’! There is also Haralds Ski Restaurant Bar as mentioned above, great for drinks as well as food. 

Off the pistes, the bars are a perfect place to make friends with the small ski crowds that gravitate towards Bardonecchia. It may please some people to know that there are no nightclubs in Bardonecchia, and the resort goes to bed quietly at the end of the day.

 

Bardonecchia shopping

In Bardonecchia there are some classic sportswear stores lined up along the high street selling clothes, equipment and accessories. There are also a few local craft stores, supermarkets and deli’s selling food and drink (very handy to have if you are opting for a self-catered apartment for your stay). The town is small and most of the people who live there are locals so you can expect to find some wonderful local specialties.

 

Bardonecchia spas and relaxation

If you stay the Campo Smith Apartments or Hotel Rivè you can enjoy the indoor pool, gym, spa and sauna area available (payable locally for Apartment guests). Elsewhere, there is a public swimming pool and gym at the local sports centre, Piscina Comunale di Bardonecchia.

 

Bardonecchia arts, culture and events

Despite Bardonecchia being a somewhat quiet resort, it celebrates an action-packed events calendar throughout both the summer and winter seasons. The Born to Ride snowboard weekends take place throughout the season. Most events are participated by local athletes, but also attract an international crowd. All around, they are great fun to watch and be part of.

The Bardonecchia Alpine Coaster is open all year to enjoy near the Campo Smith area. Whizz, wind and swoosh round the track over 1km in length. Each ride costs €6pp and block tickets are available. For Winter opening days and times please enquire locally, times and prices will always be subject to weather and change.
