Ideally located in Sauze's historic centre a couple of minutes from the lifts, the rustic hotel retains its character and charm with original wood and stone throughout. Available on a half board basis, you can enjoy a classic continental breakfast each morning and venture out to a range of restaurants the hotel works with.

Rustic hotel

The warm and cosy Chalet Faure has a fantastic location in the historic centre of Sauze. Recently restored, the exposed stone and wood throughout give the property charm and character, creating a homely environment. Each bedroom is furnished in a traditional alpine style, and with rooms sleeping up to four, this is an excellent choice for families heading to Italy this winter.

Choice of restaurants

Enjoy an aperitivo before dinner at the il Lampione bar, its just below the hotel so you don't need to worry about venturing too far for a drink. There is over 250 different wines to choose from and you can often arrange a wine tasting with the team - its the perfect way to sample some of the fabulous wines from the Piemonte region (payable locally). The outdoor terrace is the perfect spot to soak up a bit of winter sun with an aperol spritz.

Each evening you can choose between three restaurants to dine in, giving you an opportunity to taste a variety of different cuisines. Head downstairs to il Lapione, where you can enjoy a glass of wine (payable locally) with the dish of the day, or head to the nearby Farola serving tasty tapas style dishes. Venture into the centre and enjoy traditional dishes from the Piemonte region at Restaurant Assietta. If you would like to dine in one of these sister restaurants, please let reception know beforehand and they will happily book you a table.

Milky Way Ski Area

Chalet Faure is situated a short walk away from the centre of Sauze where you can find plenty of bars, cafes and the ski lifts. With over 400 kilometres of slopes in the Milky Way, you won't be short of areas to explore.

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.
