When the only thing we could really find fault is that there was no boxes of tissues in the room, it goes without saying our party of 6 Brits had a ball!!
First, as the title says, the lift transfers.They run until 4.30pm - you put your boots on in the ski room and walk out normally to find the mini bus waiting to take you to any of the lifts. Finish skiing in the evening, phone from whatever lift you have finished at - hey presto - normally within 5 mins you have a lift back! Better than ski to door as you never have to work out which lift to finish at and as Madonna is in a valley with lifts both sides, this service is worth it's wait in gold!
The food is superb although it may not fussy eaters. Evening meal is a 4 course waiter service - no buffet style with chips and spag bol here! You certainly get a chance to try different meals - over the course of the week we had deer, wild boar, trout, to mane a few and all very well presented. A good selection of wines is provided - we recommend the local pinot from Trentino - yummy but the wine sommelier is always on hand to help.Breakfast is buffet style but you still order eggs, bacon etc so they are cooked fresh for you.
The spa area has a small pool, steam room and sauna plus relaxing rooms. Our only complaint was that the rule of no kids in the steam,sauna,relaxing area was not adhered to. The cost is 10 euros for the week and for that you get gowns, towels and flip-flops. It is very clean,tiday and modern but then the hotel is only 4 years old.
The rooms are modern and very warm with a temp gauge that has it's own mind when it comes to setting the temperature! A turn down service is provided with choc's on the bed every night.
Staff very friendly - especially the young barman in the evening that kept us well feed with nibbles every night before evening meal! This hotel is very international - we were the only brits there but we got by with our lack of italian! Someone always to came to our rescue if we couldn't made ourselves understood!
Everything taken into consideration this will go down as one of our best skiing trips - the weather was on the warm side for January ( 6 degrees some days) but the pistes were maintained as well as they could be in those temperatures as no snow could be made. Pistes are of all grades - probably best suited to intermediates as not much steep stuff!
The town is up market but not necessary too pricey - we have certainly paid alot more for coffees and lunches on the mountain in France(we still found a coffee for 1.50 euros). We didn't hear to many British tongues - alot of Eastern block countries so get ride of the stiff upper lip and remember to push in those lift queues!
Chalet del Brenta - you are warned - these 6 Brits may be back sooner than you think!! Thanks to all the staff for a memorable week.
