We spent a week at the Villaggio Olimpico during the summer off season. It is most definitely a ski town, but we found plenty to do! The town is beautiful and there is some excellent hiking around the hotel. The staff was friendly and engaging, making sure we were happy and involved despite the language barrier. Additionally, I loved the events - karaokee, casino night, even a cabaret!
The rooms were minimalist, but very comfortable for two people, especially as we were often out and about. The hallways could run a bit loud, but as there were very few people there, it was not a big problem. Additionally, the rooms were hot, which we solved by sleeping with the doors open. We were even able to cook a meal of pasta and homemade sauce one night with the utensils provided. The cafeteria style meals were ok... a bit expensive for what you got, but the pizza corner was great. I also got an Indian Massage at the beauty farm, which made me feel as relaxed as jelly for 24 hours!
Special thanks to Alice and Giovanna, who went above and beyond to make us feel welcome! We will be back!
