The Chaberton Lodge & Spa is close to the centre of Sauze d'Oulx and offers superb quality accommodation. It's got stunning views of the surrounding mountains and valley and has a lovely, warm ambience throughout. Enjoy nightly entertainment in the lounge area or relax and enjoy a drink or two in the bar area.  

Shuttle service

There's a free shuttle bus at set times to get you to and from the lifts or you can jump on the local ski bus that stops less than a minute away. If you want to head to the centre of Sauze, it is about a five minute walk through the old town, you can then find a range of shops, cosy restaurants and lively bars. 

Food and drink

After a day of exploring the Milky Way Ski Area, there's plenty to keep you occupied. Head to the Lounge Bar after a day on the mountain and cosy up in front of the fireplace with a drink, or catch up with friends and family before dinner with a classic aperitivo. When the sun is out, the terrace area is a lovely spot to soak up some winter sun. You can enjoy delicious meals in the cosy restaurant, breakfast will prepare you for a day on the slopes and when you return you can enjoy tasty homemade dishes from with Piedmont region. The hotel has a wonderful wine cellar, speak to the Sommelier for their recommendations - wine tasting experiences can be booked through the reception, where you can learn more about the wines and even sample a few (pay locally). After a tasty evening meal spend your evenings in Club Chaberton, where you can enjoy live music and DJ sets. 

Spa area

We recommend taking some time out to relax in the hotel's spa (payable locally). Soothe any achy ski legs in the whirlpool, head outside the the outdoor 'Tinozza' tub with mountain views before warming up in the sauna or steam room. If you are wanting to stay active, even off of the slopes, there is also a fitness room with a range of equipment available for you to use. And for the ultimate treat, massages are available for a little extra fee.

Sauze d'Oulx

Sauze d'Oulx is a vibrant resort with a lively après scene that has long appealed to British visitors. The resort offers plentiful tree-lined skiing and wide open, cruising that is ideal for intermediate skiers and improving beginners. The extensive lift system has made access to the 400km of the Milky Way ski area on-piste skiing simple and efficient.

The Sauze pistes are spread across a north and west facing, snow bowl which is great at preserving snow conditions, making the resort perfect for sampling powder skiing. A definite highlight is the 1300m descent from the top of Monte Fraiteve, skiing all the way to the valley floor at Jovenceaux.

Beyond Sauze the Milky Way ski area extends all the way to the high altitude resort of Sestriere, past Cesana towards the charming village of Claviere and across the French border to the iconic resort of Montgenèvre. The Milky Way offers a huge variety of skiing and snowboarding, perfect for the discerning wintersports enthusiast.

As well as excellent skiing, the old centre of the mountain village, with its cobbled streets, offers an attractive escape from the mountain when the ski legs start to get sore. This bustling resort is home to a great variety of pubs, bars, and restaurants all of which contribute to the lively, welcoming atmosphere.

Sauze’s reputation for offering reasonably priced food and drink is justified and has helped cement its reputation as a popular après destination. And the fabulous range of restaurants and pizzerias, both on and off the mountain, offer delicious Italian food that caters for all tastes.
