Just returned from a fab week of skiing. Apart from the fact we had great snow conditions, we felt totally spoiled by Orso Bianco. Rooms were cleaned daily. Good water pressure and plenty of hot water. Cooked eggs for breakfast and coffee/hot chocolate made fresh in the espresso machine. Dinner was different every night, and just so yummy.

A great little hotel based up the mountain in Sportinia. Access is via the chairlift so check the weather forecast in advance. Great location with ski in ski out and the food is excellent. Rooms are basic but clean, regular towel changes and plenty of hot water for a shower after a days skiing. We liked it so much we... More

This was our first stay at Orso Bianco and we were expecting a lot based on the previous reviews. We weren't disappointed! Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful. The location is a perfect base for skiing in Sauze and the Vialattea. The food was great, transfers via Turin were fast, relaxed and perfectly organised by Dawn & Simone. We'll definitely... More

Dawn and Simone, the hands on owners of this small hotel, are unequalled in their attention to their guests needs. This place is not Sauze d'Oulx as the title suggests, it is Sportinia which is more than half way up the slopes from Sauze d'Oulx. Skiers staying in Sauze have to travel up the lifts to get to Sportinia! So... More

It is undoubtedly the best value for money si i ski out hotel you are ever likely to find. The location is unsurpassed being half way up the mountain opposite the ski... More

We returned last night from another fabulous week in Sportinia. Dawn and Simone who own the Orso Bianco continue to set very high standards throughout the hotel and are always so accommodating and welcoming.. This was our third year on the trot and we brought some new friends this year who were blown away by the complete package. We had... More

We have had 2 Christmas holidays here and they have been perfect. You are right on the piste so no messing with lifts and carrying skis. The accommodation gets better every trip with a new lounge area this time. Dawn, Simone and all the staff are so welcoming its very special. The food is deliciously cooked traditional Italian fare, perfect... More

Situated right on the slopes opposite ski school and adjacent to ski slopes. The hotel has 22 bedrooms, a mixture of twins and family rooms. Selection of biscuits , croissants, fruit, yoghurt, toast etc plus either boiled or fried eggs and bacon for breakfast gets you off to a good start. When we returned from a days skiing we were...
