Hotel Serenella

  • Italy, Cervinia

Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

The Hotel Serenella is a small and friendly hotel in a great spot in the centre of Cervinia. And, it's close to the slopes. The Cretaz chairlift and the ski school meeting point are just 250 metres away. It's a couple of minutes walk there, but on your return you can rest your legs by skiing back to 50 metres or so from the boot room. You'll also find Cervinia's restaurants, shops, pubs and clubs right your doorstep, the location really adds to your holiday here. 

The cosy lounge bar is decorated with wooden paneling in a typical Alpine style. It's a nice place to relax on the comfy sofas and enjoy a tipple after a day on the mountain. On sunny days we loved sitting out on the sun loungers on the small terrace. The rooms have had a recent update. They're decorated in the same Alpine style, but have a fresh, modern feel. 

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. 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.
