In a resort that screams 5-star luxury, comes a hotel to match, the Grand Hotel Courmayeur Mont Blanc. Sat perfectly in a tranquil and sun-kissed area of the resort, you are just moments away from the centre of the Courmayeur - that is of course if you can bring yourself to leave the superior comfort and service that the hotel has to offer. There are a wide range of bedrooms to choose from, each decorated in a modern Alpine style and many coming with a balcony so you can soak up the impressive views of the surrounding mountains. The public areas are just as smart and you will find yourself stopping as you walk around all 4 floors of the hotel to check out the specular views which just get better and better the higher you go.
The hotel operates two shuttles to get you to and from the slopes each day between 8am and 6pm. You can choose to be dropped off at the Dolonne lift or head over to the Skyway cable car. If at the end of the day the après gets a little out of control, don't worry, the resorts public bus also stops outside the hotel, just make sure you get back for your 3 course a la carte evening meal, definitely something you don't want to miss out on.
If skiing is not on the agenda or you are wanting a day off, the hotels spa is where you need to go. An impressive 500m² Elysium spa includes plenty to keep you occupied and help take your mind off everyday life. After a couple of hours here there's no better way to end the day than to head to the bar and find a table by the window or out on the terrace with a good book and a drink or two.
Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 45 mins from Turin airport.
