I stayed at Novecento over a long weekend in March with a large group of friends - there were approx 20 of us from across Europe and we had a wonderful time. This is a lovely little hotel with a lot of character - we liked the decor and the fireplace in the lounge. The room was good with a balcony but we didnt get to use it as it was so cold. Overall we had a great time. The hotel is only a short 10 minute walk to the town with all the shopping and the shuttle service was great and always prompt. The staff at the hotel could not do more to help us and make us feel welcome. They were truly fabulous! They helped four of us to book us into the wonderful thermal spa 10 minutes away (which I would strongly recommend but best on weekday). The spa area in the hotel was okay - the jacuzzi was not hot enough in my view so I only used it once. However, the massage was AMAZING - if you're there, definitely get a massage (even if only a 30 min one) and the masseuse is very talented- many of my friends had a massage by her and they all raved about her too - I had a sore neck and back and it really helped. A minor criticism was the hairdryer in the bathroom - for someone with thick long hair, it took forever to dry! The walls are quite thin so you can hear everything - didnt help when I was trying to have an afternoon siesta! If you're a light sleeper, best to opt for a room higher up (we were on the 1st floor)

- Live again the enchantment of the first years of the last century in the Romantik Hotel Villa Novecento of Courmayeur: an authentic travel at the beginning of the 1900's, an aesthetic experience in a refined and elegant atmosphere, in one of the more evocative landscape frames of the Alps. A precious witness of the Courmayeur of those years today lives again in the Romantik Hotel Villa Novecento, few steps away from the pedestrian centre of this historical village.

Antique furniture and precious fabrics, warm and welcoming rooms with views over the Mont Blanc make this hotel particularly special. A particular care has been dedicated to the restaurant "Novecento", faithful to the ancient gastronomic traditions and sincerity of bygone food.

Of course, the twentieth-century rooms offers also the services of a first category hotel, such as safe deposit box, satellite TV, direct dialling telephone with Internet connection, but the atmosphere is undoubtedly the one of the last century, the 1900's that makes live again the exciting vacation of the mountain pioneers for which Courmayeur was the comfortable and luxury base field for the adventures along the Mont Blanc's glaciers.

Mont Blanc is life itself, it symbolises the deep-rooted and ancient reasons that make this town and its people special, it gives it a stamp of authenticity which not even time can erase. The richness of the environment and nature, the possibility to go hiking and "touch" local fauna make this area an important tourist attraction for mountain lovers following marked out paths and guided along the way by nature guides. ... more less
