Hotel Punta Maquignaz

  • Italy, Cervinia

Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Punta Maquignaz is right in the centre of Cervinia, just 100 metres from the Cretaz chairlifts. There's a really cosy feel in the hotel with Alpine features and wood-panelled rooms. The open fire in the lounge is lovely to come back to after a long day of skiing. It's a nice spot to catch up on the day's events with a drink from the bar. There's also a spa area, which is included in the hotel price. We love using the sauna to ease those aching muscles. You can even treat yourself to a massage- they can be booked and paid for locally.

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

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 runs. 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 want to get the miles in and 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. Further into town along the traffic free cobbled streets you'll find plenty of shops to browse as well as some great hidden little pizzerias, perfect if you want a slice for lunch.

In and around the resort there's 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're after and whatever the age range, there's something for everyone in this authentic Italian resort.
