“Hotel not really it is a B&B”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

The B&B is very near to the bus stop and there are 3 different bus routes very frequent into the resort. The drive to Livigno is an experience for going through the small border tunnel that just fits a bus one way only. Bring a book or movie as it comes close to three hours. Don't stay on the
bus during the stop as the Trofana Tyrol is worth seeing from the inside. Almost like a small timber village.

Caravasc bed and breakfast is good, clean and simple and they leave you alone as long as you behave. The beds are reasonably comfortable and clean towels are given every other day. Breakfast perhaps slightly limited but basic and no different from any other low cost B&B. No bacon and eggs in the morning. Italian Satellite TV in each room, don't forget your HDMI cable as I did. Safe in the room and no extra cost. Wi-Fi signal available but not in our room as I had to sit on the floor outside our room or go downstairs to reception to get connected.

It's a cafe where people socialise, have a drink and play billiards and nothing else. Boring for some but just fine for me. The ski room is downstairs and very useful to get the boots off before you go into your own room. When you leave at 4 am to get your bus to the airport they will give you something to eat and drink. They are a genuinely nice couple who enjoy their work and do their best to help you. Livigno itself depends on a bus service to get you skiing which I really don't like at all. However the BB could not be placed better as the bus stop is outside the front door. The best ski-lift is also just a 50 meter walk away and gets you to one side of the village. I did found the buses good and had no reason to complain. Livigno is probably the best place to buy alcohol and tobacco but with my luck, I don't drink or smoke. You don't pay any tax on it.

Food in Livigno is Pizza or Pasta or the other way round but cheap around 8 euri. The skiing is mainly for advanced beginners who like using the slightly dated lift system. There is one lift Trepalle (8) that takes about 18 minutes and should have been taken out of service years ago. You can cross from one side of the valley to the other side by a short walk but no one tells you and that is an Italian problem as the information where to go and in what direction to ski can be so much better

There is the option of cross country skiing and hire of a snowmobile at a very reasonable rate due to fuel being tax free. Still a really nice place to go and friendly people happy to have you in their village. Go and have a look and enjoy your time. Is there anything really to complain about, the answer must be no. We will be back this summer with our mountain bikes as the mountains are also perfect for this.

Nice small hotel with clean bright spacious rooms and a balcony with a mountain view. Bathroom was spotless. Were very pleased with our stay here on a ski holiday with Directski. It is to the far end of town from the ski school and most of the nightlife but Livigno is small so it's only a 15 min stroll to the centre and there is a bus stop outside the door. There are a few shops and restaurants neareby and the location also means you get some sleep when you're ready to call it a night!

Staff were friendly - though didn't have much English - but we still felt welcome there. Breakfast was basic but quite adequate with fresh rolls each day. Would be happy to stay here again on another trip to Livigno.
