“Good holiday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014

Hotel facilities were very good i.e. swimming pool, sauna, steam room, gym.
The distance to the ski lifts from the boot room was very close.
However the resort is very quite with not allot to do if you don't ski or get injured.
The choice and quality of food in the restaurant was good, with a spacious dinning room.

“Gushing falls in July”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

Having read the previous review we always intended to do this walk on our visit to La Thuile.

Our first attempt failed before it started as the car park at the bottom was full- I recommend avoiding weekends in the summer.

We ended up doing the walk on our last day and we shared the falls with only a handful of people which was lovely.

The falls were raging when we visited which may have been because of all the snow which still hadnt melted.

We recommend taking the excursion on path 7 up to Belvedere as it gives great views of fall two and three and is only 15 mins to the top.

Great walk, lovely views but for the higher falls you will definitely need good boots and walking poles helped too.

“Finally got to travel on this pass.........”

.......albeit on skis. After years driving around the Alps from resort to resort I now understand why I have never driven across it!!! Great skiing though, and wonderful views.

“Magnificent Alpine Vista”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

This is an amazing spot to stand particularly if on top of one of the La Thuile ski trails. On a clear day Monte Bianco and the alpine ridge can be seen for ever with the clearly distinct peak of the Matterhorn in the distance. I have to admit though that I've only ever been there when it's covered in snow but some of the old frontier fort ruins can evoke glimpses of another time. The only spoiler for that perfect picture post card scene is the fairly significant hydro electric line and towers that bring nuclear generated electricity into Italy. They cut right across the pass.
