Sat at the top of the resort literally on the slopes, Hotel Continental not only has some of the best panoramic views of the area, it literally couldn't be easier to get on the mountain each day with the Dantercepies gondola outside the back door. The setting is truly outstanding with nature on your doorstep and a lot of effort has gone into making this an attractive and comfortable hotel to relax and enjoy everything on offer.
The public areas are decorated in an attractive, traditional style with hints of modern touches. The bar area is a lovely place to unwind by the warm fireplace and enjoy a few drinks with friends and family. Alternatively, you could take a trip to the wellness area and chill in the whirlpool or turn up the heat in the sauna or steam room which was our favourite way to loosen up after a day skiing.
Rooms are comfortable and clean, each with a balcony to step out onto and enjoy the magnificent views the area has to offer. In many rooms the walls are made of larch and alder wood, giving a real warm feeling and keeping in touch with the hotel's connection with nature and the surroundings.
Each morning you will enjoy a buffet breakfast with hot and cold options to get you ready for the day ahead. Dinner is an impressive 4 course meal and a chance for the chef to get creative as his clear passion for cooking is displayed with every dish served.
For those looking to explore the lovely resort of Selva, it's just a little ski down the hill or a 15 minute walk. It's maybe just the walk back up the hill that might be the struggle but that just means you've earned a few hours in the spa or perhaps an extra drink before dinner.
Another great thing about the location is the nursery slopes and ski school meeting points are both nearby, so not far to go at all each morning. A great hotel for those seeking the perfect location.
