“Nice apartment, well equipped and calm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

It's only yesterday my friends and me got back from Alouette (Sestriere).

Apartment is nicely furnished, very well equipped with kitchen stuff, bedroom has good bed, nice and big wardrobe, bath is spacious and clean, main room with kitchen and additional queen size bed very pleasant with nice balcony. While making the booking I thought the apartment may be to close to the main road leading to Sestriere, but on the contrary - this place is very calm being in the second row of houses (absolutely no any noise from the street).
Marina (the owner) was very helpful from the beginning - kind, clear and fast in responding.
We were for the first time in Sestriere and she was very kind and helpful upon our arrival in explaining us about places, opening times, ski tickets (got us a very good lower-season ticket deal!) etc. We've had a need for the internet access which was not available at the time as there were some delays from the internet provider, so she helped us providing a suitable wireless connection every day. Grappa we got as a farewell gift from Marina ("produzione propria") still awaits to be tasted, :)

Distance from the nearest ski lifts is about 300m, we were using car although a walk wouldn't be too long - may get slightly steep returning. Walking distance to the Sestriere center is about 10 minutes - nice walk.

Now very important thing: @ about 2-3 minutes from the apartment there is a really great "pasticceria", called "Il forno": we got addicted to their great "focaccias", "brioches" & sweets. If you visit this place between 7:30 and 7:50 AM you will for sure get nice hot and fresh stuff directly from oven (!). They also offer some other fresh staff like: salumi, wines, cheeses, many kinds of sweets, grappas, etc. Their opening time was from 7:30AM leaving enough time for a decent breakfast before ski lifts open at 9. Last few days we were buying focaccias in the morning and for a before-dinner-snack upon return to apartment, :).

Room Tip: First floor's got a wooden balcony(!).
