Welcome to

Champoluc

Nestled in the stunning Aosta Valley, Champoluc sits at one end of theMonterosa Ski Area - Italy’s very own Three Valleys which includes the resorts of Alagna and Gressoney-la-Trinité. In total the ski area boasts 180km of slopes including some huge areas of off-piste and it is the setting of the largest heli-ski area in the Alps.

In spite of these heady attributes, Champoluc and the Monterosa remain a relatively calm, quiet and unspoilt area – the Russian Oligarchs are nowhere to be seen and it is likely to be a while before Prada considers opening a store anywhere near here! As a result the slopes are emptier, the lift queues are shorter and the prices in the restaurants are cheaper than in resorts of a similar size elsewhere around the Alps.

TRAVEL

Flying - There are a few options when it comes to your destination airport; but Milan or Turin are the obvious options because of distance to the resort and availability of flight and transfer options. Milan to Champoluc is 190kms and Turin to Champoluc is 108kms.

Driving - Drivers will find the roads through France faster and emptier than those in the UK and this is largely down to them being toll roads…so there is a price to pay! London to Champoluc takes around 11 hours 30 minutes without stops and this includes the tunnel crossing......90 minutes to Dover, 30 minutes in the tunnel and nine-and-a-half hours from Calais to Champoluc.





RESTAURANTS

With two/three restaurants and bars in Camp Zero, you would be excused for taking the easy route and really enjoying your holiday in the comfort of your own residence.

The Summit is a fine dining restaurant serving contemporary cuisine sourced from quality local ingredients and a wine list with over 800 bottles to choose from! Also on the property is The Cliffhanger’s Grill – a brasserie with a lively and friendly atmosphere; it's open for breakfast (the pastries are incredible), lunch & dinner. This eaterie has a keen focus on classic Italian dishes, many of which are cooked in the special charcoal oven, the Josper! The third sort-of-restaurant is La Champagnerie where guests can enjoy a range of stunning canapés & oysters washed down by some lovely bubbly! Finally, The Boulder Bar is a great spot for an early evening cocktail and they offer light snacks too.

Our favourite Mountain Restaurant is Campo Base at the top of the Mandria Chair. It looks like a trekker’s hut but serves some fine fayre.



THINGS TO DO IN RESORT

Champoluc is a relatively small & traditional mountain village and so there is not a wide range of shops to browse or sports centre at which to burn off excess calories from all the delicious pasta, pizza and prosecco!

That said, there are a few distractions for those that do not wish to ski from first to last lifts every day. Although not a massive diversion from downhill skiing, cross-country skiing is a completely separate discipline and there are some lovely circuits through the woods in Champoluc. For the uninitiated, lessons and hire are available. You could also try snowshoe-ing or simply walking in the fresh air and stunning scenery.

In town is the Monterosa Spa which has indoor and outdoor swimming pools, jacuzzis, saunas, hammams, relaxation chambers, water fountains and a café bar. Beauty and relaxation treatments are also available.
