The Banchetta Apartments are in the centre of Borgata, a small village four kilometres from Sestriere. The lifts are only 300 metres away so getting into Sestriere or straight up on to the mountain and the Milky Way each day is nice and easy. The lifts here often don't have queues, which makes for a dream start each morning. You can ski right back to the building along one of the paths from the main slopes, too. Borgata is the perfect place to experience the local way of life which is centred around a small number of bars and restaurants.
The apartments are located behind Hotel Banchetta. They're basic and snug in size but come with a handy kitchenette. If you want to upgrade to half board, you can eat at the Hotel Banchetta. You can also pay to use their sauna.
Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 45 mins by coach from Turin airport.
