We stayed at Palace 2 in a 1 bed apartment which RCI kindly changed for me after I had read a bad review about the studios in Palace 1 (our original booking) so thumbs up to RCI for doing that for us. The apartments at Palace 2 were fine for a ski trip, but rather short on cooking facilities, ok for soups and pasta, but nothing more adventurous. Nice staff particularly the guy behind the bar who gave me increasingly large glasses of wine during the week, and an increasing number of 'apos' which by the end of the week almost negated the need to eat an evening meal. Thumbs up to on prices, 1euro 30centimes for a Mochioata Latte...yes really, and 3 euros for the wine, nice change from the stupidly expensive French resorts. Likewise the lift passes are reasonable in comparison to the rest of Europe. Sestriere itself is an ideal ski resort, fabulous long runs, all very well kept with constant snow canons, it hadn't snowed since 10th Dec when we were there mid Jan, and the pistes were good. Also good links over to Sauze and Montgenevre and various other smaller resorts. We are boarders and could see that if there had been a good dump of snow it would be a boarders heaven with plenty of easy access to off piste, and masses of large bowls over at Sauze. As experienced skiers/snowboarders we assessed this area as a good one and a nice change from France and Austria. Things to note, easy access from Turin by road, oh and we had a lovely meal 13 euros each and romantic stroll round the little known lake Larghi d'Avigliano just west of Turin on our way to a very weird close to airport hotel at Borgamo (yuck new Italian town) built a knats throw from what looked like Chernobel. Oh well that is the north of Italy for you.
