Sestriere - Hotel Du Col - Via Lattea
Designed by the world-famous architect Renzo Piano, ( think Pompidou Centre in Paris and The Shard in London ) the Hotel Du Col in Sestriere is an elegant and modern structure a few steps from the ski slopes of the huge Via Laetta ski arena, almost fall out of bed and go skiing !
All rooms are spacious and beautifully presented and can accommodate both single guests, couples or families of up to four people as well as groups.
The Hotel du Col offers a fantastic view of the slopes from the Lounge Bar which coincidentally is where homemade afternoon tea and cake is served – perfect for recuperating after a day on the slopes.
The hotel provides a delicious sweet and savoury buffet breakfast every morning with a huge range of delights ensuring that you are fully energised and ready for the day ahead, and in the evening, the hotel's restaurant serves up mouth-watering regional and Italian specialities so that no tummy is left rumbling.
The Hotel du Col is known not only for its incredible location to the slopes and doorway to the Milky Way, but also for its delicious homecooked food that makes you discover and appreciate local and traditional dishes.
You will get many WOW experiences. Words like “spectacular & breathtaking view”, “amazing & unforgettable landscape” will be used a lot during your holiday. The Dolomites are the perfect setting for a ski holiday. Here, UNESCO-protected landscapes combine with a sunny climate and immaculate pistes to create one of the world’s most beautiful and enjoyable ski regions. Meanwhile, state-of-the-art snowmaking systems ensure the slopes are fast and fun, whatever the weather.
Placed just above the treeline, Sestriere is one of the highest resorts in Italy at 2035m elevation, which guarantees wonderful snow conditions and a fun-filled ski holiday. A well established ski resort village thanks to its use during the Winter Olympics in 2006, Sestriere has a modern and trendy feel that has a wide variety of apres-ski activities, a fantastic offering of traditional Italian cuisine and is an enviable doorway to a snow white paradise.
The ski school is relaxed and friendly, the main nursery slopes are almost opposite the hotel, which offers magic carpets and a couple of button lifts paired with some gently sloped Blues to ease your way in to becoming a skier.
Those more accomplished skiers can explore the Via Lattea with some 400kms of varied pistes on the Italian side of the system, with a six day ski pass you also get a one day pass to visit Montgenèvre on the French side of the system. Sestriere also offers nighttime skiing on the same floodlit runs as skied by the pros during the 2006 Winter Olympic Games.
