The homely Hotel Banchetta has been family-run since 1930s and they've created a lovely, warm and cosy hotel. It's in the centre of Borgata, a small village four kilometres from the Sestriere - perfect if you're looking for a more relaxed ski holiday.

Quiet location

The best thing about the hotels location in Borgata is that you won't have to queue to get onto the lifts in the morning. Beat the crowds and be one of the first on the mountain. The nearest lift is just 300 meters away and connects you to the wider ski area, meaning you can get a jump start on those staying in central Sestriere. Best of all, you can ski right back to the hotel. 

Food and drink

The staff here give a warm and friendly service, especially at meal times. Breakfast is buffet style, which means there's no waiting about if you're keen to get explore the Milky Way. The tasty four-course evening meal often including dishes from the Piedomonte region will help build your energy levels back up and don't forget to visit the bar. It's a great place to relax and chat to other guests about your day on the mountain - be sure to try a glass of wines from the region, they are some of Italy's best. If you're lucky enough to have good weather, you can sit out on the terrace and soak up the sunshine.

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.
