Sauze d'Oulx - Hotel Relais des Alpes
30th March - 6th April 2024
Set in Sauze's main square, the comfortable Relais des Alpes is in the heart of the action and very much considered one of Sauze d'Oulx's most popular hotels thanks to its family-friendly, relaxed ambience and perfect location to the slopes and the shops.
The hotel offers a hearty hot and cold breakfast buffet, and a 4-course evening meal which is served buffet style. This is perfect for keeping you fuelled during your time on the slopes and the traditional Piedmontese dishes are all served in the cosy hotel restaurant. All dietary requirements are catered for at the hotel with the friendly staff being on hand to advise on the menu.
The rooms are simply furnished in keeping with the hotel and are perfect for families and school groups, offering triple and quadruple rooms all with private facilities. The Hotel also offers a small spa with a sauna and jacuzzi to warm up on those chilly days and help relax those muscles.
The hotel is just a short 5 minute walk from the start of the ski slopes, or if those ski boots are giving you too much trouble you can hop on the public bus which stops outside and you will soon be riding up the Clotes chairlift, ready for an snow-filled day on the mountains.
Well-known for its family-friendly environment, proximity to great restaurants, local shops, and attractions as well as excellent TripAdvisor reviews, Hotel Relais Des Alpes makes it easy to enjoy the best of Sauze d'Oulx.
The Via Lattea is a winter sports area straddling the French-Italian border. Better known to the British as the Milky Way, the Via Lattea covers all the skiing in Sestriere, Sauze d’Oulx, Sansicario, Claviere and Montgenèvre and is the biggest ski area in the Susa Valley with some 400 km of slopes. Situated at the northern end of this ski area, we find the vibrant town of Sauze d’Oulx perched on a sunny plateau.
As well as excellent skiing, the old centre of Sauze d'Oulx, with its cobbled streets, offers an attractive escape from the mountain when the ski legs start to get sore.
Sauze d’Oulx has an enviable winter sunshine record, a fantastic blend of Italian and French cuisine and culture and a backdrop of stunning panoramas making a great base from which to explore the Milky Way.
