We stayed here in the summer so I can't comment on the place if you're on a skiing holiday but I can imagine that it's even more magical when covered in a blanket of snow. To get here, we left our car in the free car park in Champoluc and took the cable car up the mountain (about five minutes)... More

I'm used to come to Champoluc especially in Summer and this restaurant is one of my favourite. You can reach it both walking on hiking path no. 13 (about 45 min.) or via cable car (10 minutes and then 5 minute walk). The location is quiet, wonderful panorama and excellent food. Owners are amongst the kindest people I have ever... More

We have just returned from our third wonderful stay at this gem of a hotel/chalet above Champoluc and had a fabulous welcome surpassed only by the care and attention to every detail during the week. The food is home cooking at its best, the wines are local and good value, and advice on them is excellent. The rooms are full... More

All the glowing reviews below are completely justified. This really is a gem of a place. The welcome from Francesca and family is so personable, genuine and helpful you'll feel like you're staying with friends. They are all local and are passionate and immensely knowledgeable about the area and their hotel. Breakfasts were generous, with delicious coffee and fresh pastries... More

I have never stayed here but had lunch several times in this wonderfully renovated old farmhouse. The food is truly excellent and the family running the place are all charming and friendly. This place reminds you about how skiing in the Italian alps is supposed to be and it is still undestroyed from too many tourists. I hope it stays... More

We went ski-ing in March ( with fellow reviewers Neil A)--He has said it all but I will say it again. The hotel is a small beautifully restored italian alpine farm complex and despite its very genuine rustic charm with almost everything made of exposed old wood or rock it is warm and comfortable with excellent modern bathrooms with endless...

We love Frantze Rascard and all the family who work there, they are as warm and welcoming as the hotel itself. It is absolutely wonderful to stay in such a beautiful and charming rascard, hidden amongst the trees just off the main piste to Champoluc. Above all we are made to feel like part of the family and are so... More
