My wife and I spent only one night at the Chalet della Guida on March 17, 2012, as we were on our way to more southern destinations.
It was enough for being seduced by the authenticity of the location in an old village of a small valley above Sestriere, and we were treated with utmost courtesy and attention although being just passers-by.
The chalet (restored with simplicity but comfortable and impeccably clean) is a typical sample of local mountain dry stone dwellings. The room had everything you need and nothing superfluous.
We will not forget the geniality of the lady manager, nor of her chef - a tiny sardinian lady who prepares delicious local dishes at the chalet's detached restaurant.
Definitely a place where we wish we could go again !
The last comment will be about access to the chalet : do not plan to arrive at night if narrow mountain lanes make you nervous ; this is a very secluded place, a quality that means the driving from the village of Bardonecchia necessitates some attention.
