We booked this hotel at short notice for three nights as we wanted to visit friends skiing.
As it was three star I did not expect brilliant food or experience, but to my surprise this small hotel exceeded all expectations and I would certainly recommend it. The staff were exceptional. Very polite, helpful and sociable. The atmosphere was cosy and friendly just what you need after skiing.
The biggest surprise was the food. The breakfast was buffet style with plenty of choice of cereals,,hams, cheeses etc along with a fantastic selection of homemade cakes and pastries. Mouthwatering! At breakfast we were asked for for choice of dinner menu. This was a choice of three pasta starters and a choice of three main courses. You could also have soup of the day.
The dinner sitting was at 7.30pm. On entering the dining room there was a lovely selection of anti pasta dishes and salads. It is advisable not to fill up on this course too much if you want to make the most of the next courses.
The pasta course was gorgeous, homemade Italian with stunning flavours and simple ingredients. The main course we had was a pork leg dish with potatoes. The meat just fell off the bone. Never tasted anything like it! The night after was just as lovely a deer casserole with polentta.
The location of the hotel is just a couple of miles from the main Sestriere resort but you can join the ski slopes from here as well and there are restaurants and bars just down the road.
It was a truly surprising experience and one worth experiencing.
