Grand Hotel Sestriere has great facilities and an even better location. The lifts are only a few minutes away and you can get to them easily with the free shuttle available at selected times. The centre of town is a short walk away and you can look forward to some great mountain views when you get back to the hotel - we recommend enjoying them from the bar. You can pick from over 1,500 wine labels and sit next to the open fire.

There's two restaurants here so you can change things up and upgrade to à la carte for a couple of nights. If you've got some spare time, head for the spa and check out the sauna, steam room and whirlpool (payable locally).

Added value

Free tea and biscuits daily (4.30pm - 5.30pm)

Free night available for Winter 24/25 (ends 15 Nov 24)


Sitting at the very heart of The Milky Way ski area in Italy, Sestriere and nearby Borgata is the perfect home base for those of us who truly love the mountains. Whether you’re a complete beginner, or a seasoned expert, The Milky Way ski area truly has something for us all!

A purpose built resort that was constructed in the 1930s (and extended again in 2006 to host the Turin Winter Olympics) Sestriere has a modern and trendy feel to it, with a lively après ski crowd that congregates in the popular bars and pubs around the town when the lifts close.

Sestriere is also home to the Tabata night club, which claims to be one of the biggest and the best that the Alps has to offer!

Sitting amongst 400km of pistes, there is plenty of skiing and snowboarding to be had in Sestriere and beyond, joining the pistes over at Sauze d’Oulx, Claviere and Montgenèvre over the border in France.
