Do you love mountains, exclusive holidays and high altitude relaxation? Popular destinations for winter holidays include the Italian Alps where natural beauty, outdoor activities and prestige hospitality facilities await you. The Aosta Valley offers comfort, hospitality and - above all - truly unforgettable holidays. Why choose Aosta? Here are 3 good reasons:

1. Views and gourmet cuisine on the Mont Blanc Skyway

The eighth wonder of the world with a breath-taking view over the glaciers of Mont Blanc is named the Skyway Cable Car. Precisely here, on the roof of Europe, you can live an astonishing experience, observing the world from above, but especially by touching the lowest point of the sky. Courmayeur, Pavillon and Punta Helbronner are the three stations where you can set off to discover Mont Blanc with its enchanting views and awesome natural perspectives. Enjoy a gourmet experience at 3466 metres above sea level, in a corner designed by Kartell sitting at the Infinity Table - where you will feel like floating suspended between earth and sky - accompanied by the taste and flavours of Aosta Valley cuisine.

2. Relais & Spa for a 5-star night in the mountains

Unforgettable vacations begin with the way we are welcomed. There are several 4 and 5 star accommodation facilities awaiting you in Aosta Valley, where hospitality, relaxation and well-being are truly at home.
Mont Blanc Relais & Spa on Mont Blanc: built in stone and wood, this is a dream destination with luxury suites, an exclusive spa and excellent cuisine.
Charmant Petit Lac Ecohotel Parc & Spa on Monte Rosa: totally green hospitality and comfort in full respect for the environment.
Hermitage Hotel - one of the peaks of Monte Cervino: luxury wooden suites, antique furniture and local handicrafts for this symbol of elegance and attention to detail. Here, too, wellness services and gourmet cuisine will make your stay magical.

3. Star chefs and tastings: Gran Paradiso, Aosta and Courmayeur

Fine dining and good living. Creativity, excellence and carefully selected ingredients materials are all to be found in Aosta Valley. Here, too, you can enjoy a quality food experience based on local produce and the skill of top star chefs.
