Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Gran Baita is perfect if you’re after a more luxury hotel. It had a refurbishment just last year and has a modern alpine décor with stylish rooms and public areas. The staff here are great and give a really attentive service so you can just enjoy your holiday with everything taken care of.

It’s just outside of Courmayer about a ten-minute walk from the centre. When it's time to head to the slopes, or to return home after a hard days skiing, take advantage of the free shuttle that runs between 8.30am and 5pm every day. You can also use it to pop into Courmayeur for a spot of shopping. If you do fancy the walk though, it’s a great way to stretch the legs and you’ll get some good views of the surrounding area.

When you get back to the hotel each day, try and make some time for the fantastic wellness area. We loved taking a dip in the heated pool before getting ready for dinner. It opens up to the outside where you can breathe in the fresh mountain air while staying warm in the water. The meals here are a real highlight. Breakfast and dinner are included and if you want to try the a la carte brasserie restaurant, you’ll get a 30% discount.

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

Courmayeur

Courmayeur’s cobbled streets are full of luxurious shops, stocked with the most upmarket and stylish clothes and accessories. Take a walk through the town and feast your eyes on some delicious local foods, don’t worry, your nose will lead the way. You will struggle to miss the 4810m high Mont Blanc, Europe’s highest mountain which sits just beyond the town.

Despite its small ski area, Courmayeur remains a popular resort, due to its well-maintained pistes, varied terrain and spectacular scenery and views. The main attraction is the famous Monte Bianco Skyway. Imagine yourself ascending to 3,466m knowing that when you reach the top, you will be met by open powder fields and plenty off-piste to play in. This is like nowhere else we have experienced and unsurprisingly attracts top skiers and snowboarders from all around the world.

At the end of the day, there’s a great selection of bars to grab a drink, relax and chat about your day on the slopes. It’s definitely one for the bucket list.
