Sestriere Ski Holiday Resort
Superbly positioned at the heart of the Milky Way's 400km of pistes is the highest and most snow-sure resort in this area. Purpose built in the 1930's, Sestriere has a modern and trendy feel and is a perfect all round resort - great snow, varied terrain, Italian hospitality, and reasonable prices.
Although there are some hotels, accommodation is predominantly in apartment blocks.
There are some nice shops in Sestriere as well as a fitness centre, a sports centre, pool and ice rink. It is also possible to visit the town of Borgata thanks to a recent cable car link.
The mountain restaurants immediately around Sestriere are quite limited and are better in other areas of the Milky Way, however there are some good options for eating out in resort.
A purpose built resort with great ski area.
