Hotel Cresta et Duc

  • Italy, Courmayeur

Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Cresta et Duc is just steps away from the charming cobbled streets in Courmayeur’s centre. What’s better is that the main cable car is only 250 metres away so you’ll be out skiing in no time. There’s a bus stop close by if you don’t feel like walking.

We love the look of this hotel with its mixture of modern and traditional features. Rustic wood and stone is used throughout for a typical alpine feel. The food’s great with plenty of choices at the four-course dinners. Or, you can treat yourself to something from the a la carte menu. If you’re looking to relax at the end of the day, the spa is definitely the place to go. Sit back and enjoy the heat of the sauna or just lay in the Turkish bath and let the time float by. Personally our favourite spot was sitting in the nicely decorated hotel bar and chatting about what we would get up to the following day. If the sun’s out, you can take your drink out to the terrace.

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

Courmayeur

Right on the border of France, Courmayeur's one of the classiest ski resorts in Italy. It's positioned at the foot of Europe's highest mountain, Mont Blanc. Lot's of people flock here for it's mixed piste levels, fantastic snow conditions and intimate ski area. Other's can't get enough of the big-mountain scenery - there's nothing nicer than sitting in a mountain café on a bluebird day and soaking up some rays.

Look out for snow-sport champions - the resort attracts top skiers and snowboarders from all over the world. The stunning views, powdery snow and endless choice of off-piste draws them in year after year. The Vallée Blanche is unmissable; starting at one of the most famous off-piste areas in Europe and taking you through a glacier. This is a good one to do with a guide as they'll show you all the best routes.

Another brilliant perk of skiing here is the six-day lift pass which lets you do two days skiing in another nearby resort. La Thuile and La Rosiere are popular places to go (there's a bus that'll take you to these nearby towns, or you could take the Monte Bianco Skyway). You can't miss the Monte Bianco Skyway, a cable-car reaching up to 3,466 metres. How many people can say they've travelled over the clouds?

With all the things to do in Courmayeur, you'll definitely be needing a drink and some hearty food throughout the day. The village has a great reputation for bars and restaurants. You're bound to find the perfect place to re-convene and chat about your day on the slopes.

This is definitely one for the bucket list!
