Sometimes in Italy you can find a place that has been renovated with class, respecting its history and style. Le Rascard is one of them. It is like to travel back in the past and land in a quiet and cozy mountain village in the middle of the snow. The fact that you can only reach the place by gondola adds a lot to its charm.
The hosts are really nice and helpful, the rooms full of wood and the beds super comfy and warm. The restaurant is delicious and the little spa adds some glamour to the whole experience.
I would suggest a night in this place to couples, lovers, friends, or even family (if your kids are on the quiet side).
And then in the morning, you put your skis just out of the door and off you go on the huge Monterosa Ski Area. I am not sure if you can ask for more....
