Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Base Camp offers a stylish selection of studios and apartments featuring fresh furnishings and modern decor, in Cielo Alto. This self catering home-from-home accommodation offers a great environment to relax in, giving you the freedom to wine and dine in Cervinia's bars and restaurants or use the modern kitchen facilities to cook your own food. There's also an on site restaurant and bar that offers continental breakfast and evening meal options which can be arranged and paid for locally. We recommend giving the pizzas here a try, they're delicious.

The ski hire shop and ski school are within 100 metres of the accommodation, along with a supermarket for all your essentials. The resort bus stop is just outside, so you can take the five minute ride down to Breuil-Cervinia where the main lifts are. If you don't fancy the bus, the bottom half of the Cieloalto red run is directly outside which also links to Breuil-Cervinia, then its about three minute walk to the main lift. It's also possible to ski right back to the apartments, if the snow conditions are right.

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 45 mins by coach from Turin airport.

Cervinia

As one of Europe’s highest ski resorts, great snow conditions and an impressive glacier come as standard. What truly makes this resort stand out is the towering site of the Matterhorn and just how close it is. That mixed with the rest of the incredible surrounding landscape and you have yourself the perfect setting for what is simply an amazing ski resort.

Cervinia is known for its extensive ski area and as you head up the mountain to the high peaks of the Plateau Rosa you will appreciate the impressive lift system which connects you to Valtournenche as well as the famous Swiss resort of Zermatt. Almost an endless network of runs means there is plenty of variety and places to explore as well as some superb off-piste. Being based on the Italian side of the mountain definitely has its benefits, what with great food, service full of Italian flair and let’s not forget it’s a lot cheaper than over the border with our Swiss friends. With an International ski pass you have the best of both worlds, so definitely worth it if you plan to get in the miles and want to explore the full area.

The village of Cervinia is a good size and there is lots to see and do. Along the font of the slopes you will find plenty of bars overlooking the piste, many serving lunch with an epic view of the Matterhorn. Later in the day the music is turned up and you have a great range of après bars to choose from including Inghams own Dragon bar which often has live music to enjoy. Further into town along the traffic free cobbled streets you will find plenty of shops to brows as well as some great hidden little pizzerias, perfect if you want a slice for lunch.

In and around the resort there is a massive selection of things to do. Rev up the engine and have a go at ice karting, take to the skies and feel the adrenaline of tandem paragliding, have a dip in the local pool or visit the highest ice grotto in Europe over on the Swiss side of the mountains – whatever you are after and whatever the age range, there is something for everyone in this smashing authentic Italian resort.
