Monterosa AccommodationMonterosa ski resorts offer good standards of accommodation with a wide variety of apartments, chalets and hotels to choose from. Many of the mountain restaurants also offer beds for the night. Down in the valley, many hotels provide a mini bus service to the nearest lift.
Champoluc Hotels & Apartments
Champoluc offers a good choice of 3-star and 4-star hotels in and apartments. The hotels are largely located on the road that runs from the main square (Hotel Relais des Glacier, Hotel Castor, Hotel Aiglon), up past the Crest Gondola (Hotel de Champoluc), towards Villy (Petit Tournalin, Hotel Le Rocher), the Frachey lift and finally to the hamlet of St Jacques.
Just 4km from Champoluc, Antagnod is an attractive village with its own small ski area including a dedicated children’s section and a couple of longish easy blue/red runs. The Hotel Petit Prince in Antagnod offers good quality 3 star accommodation close to the pistes, at reasonable prices.
A regular ski bus operates in the Champoluc valley and connects the main square with both of the lifts which give access to the ski area, as well as the neighbouring villages of Periasc, Brusson and Antagnod.
Gressoney Hotels & Apartments
Gressoney’s chalets and apartments are spread along the valley from Gressoney St Jean to Stafal, while most of the hotels, bars, restaurants and shops are in Gressoney La Trinite and St Jean. This is also where many of the ‘Residences’ are located. ‘Residences’ supply most of the accommodation in the valley and combine the benefits of apartments and hotels, i.e. self-catered but with a managed reception and a variety of facilities. Even the simplest are of high quality and provide excellent value for money.
The entire Gressoney valley is served by an efficient bus service – not normally overcrowded by ski bus standards, and usually running bang on time, though there is less than one per hour during the middle of the day. The main service has been extended with a ‘navetta’ shuttle between Gressoney St Jean and Gressoney La Trinite. A multi-day ski pass allows free use of the buses and they are an effective way to access the ski areas provided you can work to a timetable.
Alagna Hotels & Apartments
Alagna’s main ski lift departs from the centre of the village and there is a relatively modest number of hotels and apartments in and around the village. The recently refurbished Hotel Cristallo is Alagna’s best 4-star hotel offering a high standard of accommodation, excellent leisure facilities and fine dining. The Hotel Montagna di Luce, a small and delightful 3-star hotel situated in the Walser hamlet of Pedemonte, is also recommended.
Also of note are the new Pietre Gemelle 4-star apartments in neighbouring Riva Valdobbia, just 3km from central Alagna. The apartments provide a free shuttle service to and from the lift in Alagna, but if staying in Riva Valdobbia you would ideally prefer to have a car.
Sadly, the historic Rifugio Guglielmina was destroyed by fire on 22 December 2011. Located on the mountain at Col d’Olen 2,880m, this rustic 40-bed mountain hut first opened in 1878 and is (or was) one of the highest hotels in Europe. Owned by Alberto Calaba, a sixth generation descendant of the founding family, the Rifugio Guglielmina and its immensely hospitable and popular owner has long been a favourite of off-piste skiers and mountain guides, as well as day skiers visiting for lunch.
