“Great place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2012

Loved this place, a little gem full of the authentic character that most hotels lack!
Located right on the slopes, this is a very charming old chalet, very well appointed with great rustic woodden furniture, old beams and a magnificent old woodden staircase.
Staff is great, food is excellent. A lot of details well looked after, welcome amenities, complimentary water, etc... very appreciated.

The only disappointment is the uneccessary excess of little ceramic dolls that decorate the restaurant and some cheap stuff on the walls.
The chalet is so authentic that these are out of place.

It was an interesting trip - booking Capricorno was a good move. Really great refuge and super excellent food and wine - a wonderful place to say. Sadly our skis were stolen and we were made to pay Eydallin 600 Euros to replace them with new ones! Don't hire your skis there (hire them at Clotes lifts where they include insurance). Will not go back to Sauze to ski, but would stay at Capricorno again. Excellent hotel.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2009

We arrived after the heaviest snowfall in 3 decades for a snowboarding holiday, how lucky was that? The hotel organised all our land-based transport, including the unexpected extra of an exciting skidoo ride from town to the hotel in the middle of the piste. The owners welcomed us, then we started a week of being looked after and fed with classic and delicious N Italian food, home-made pasta daily (you're in trouble if you chose something else on the menu), and high quality fresh meat and veg, home-cooked desserts, we must have put on pounds. This really is ski-in-ski-out (or skidoo-in...), ideal for those wanting to be first on the slopes, which were in absolutely perfect condition, suiting cruisers and powder-hounds alike. OK, so not ideal for those wanting to stagger home late from the apres-ski in town, and not by any means a bargain (this place boasts a michelin listing, and awards from Touring Club of Italy), but a great treat for someone looking for a quiet, romantic, gourmet wintersports holiday. The town of Sauze no longer majors on "Club 18-30" visitors, though is a substantial town, largest on the Milky Way (Via Lattea) circuit.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this charming hotel. The location is superb, the rooms very comfortable, and there is a great chef in the kitchen. Vince is a wonderful host, very warm and helpful in every way. Highly recommended.

A portrait of a bygone age framed by mountains, woods, fields and ponds, nestled between the ski slopes of the Cottian Alps, in the upper Val di Susa. In the midst of this, you'll find IL CAPRICORNO, a charming mountain hotel which was opened in 1966 by the Sacchi family. Since then it has been the jewel in the crown of Piedmontese hospitality, whose longstanding reputation is now in the hands of the Carezzana family of Turin, longterm devotees of the area. It's the perfect place for those who love old-style hospitality, where every detail and aspect has been carefully planned without ostentation.
