We stayed for a week sharing a two bedroom apartment with friends. When we arrived there was an initial confusion as we were allocated a one bedroom apartment but this was quickly put right when we asked for the facilities we had booked. The bedrooms were of reasonable size with plenty of wardrobe space. The livingroom/kitchen had a good balcony and sitting area with just about room for six round the table. The kitchen has just two hotplates and a microwave, but was reasonably equipped. I was pleased to have taken our own travel kettle. Equipment did include a fold out clothes drier.
We were lucky enough to have an appartment at the front of the Villagio and the view from the balcony was superb. A couple of minor repairs were needed during our stay and these were very quickly done.
We had one breakfast and one evening meal in the restaurant, the breakfast was good, but the evening meal was just satisfactory.
The complex has an excellent gym and a good size swimming pool (no extra charges).
Car parking is in a basement garage.
The design of the building is unusual with long corridors at various levels which takes a bit of getting used to. Also the Vilagio is one of the lower buildings in Sestriere so the centre of the town is a ten minute walk uphill. It is close to the main telecabin up Mont Fraiteva which operates in summer as well as in winter and is well worth a trip. Sestriere is an excellent summer centre for the mountains and alpine meadows.
