Les Rochers
Ranked #1 of 7 Hotels in Valtournenche
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 29, 2013

My wife and I celebrated our silver wedding in 2013 and wanted to mark the occasion with a special ski holiday. What would make it special..? Well we normally book budget self catering accommodation but on this special occasion that simply wouldn’t do.

Selecting a hotel can often be a bit of a lottery, well not where Les Rochers is concerned, we hit the jackpot. Simon and Barbara go out of their way to ensure that every aspect of your stay is 5 star. From the comfort of the rooms, the excellence and variety of the meals, the superb leisure facilities, the overall ambiance and of course the complete customer focus.

We will undoubtedly be back.

Having skied in the Aosta valley numerous times before at Pila, Courmayeur, La Thuile and Champoluc we decided to give snow sure Cervina/Valtournenche a try for an early December long weekend break. Having looked at Trip advisor reviews we decided to book at Les Rochers and we can only concur with the other favourable reports. Despite the new spa area not being ready or open yet as advertised on the hotel web site we enjoyed a wonderful stay. The hotel is extremely welcoming with Barbara and Simon fantastic hosts. Barbara looks after front of house and oversees the dining room in a caring but unobtrusive way. Simon provides transport from and to the lifts and provides valuable advice on conditions, weather, mountain restaurants etc He can also be found behind the bar in the evenings to exchange stories with. The food is quite simple but absolutely delicious. Home cooking at its best. It is also plentiful with second helpings offered on each of the four courses. The local Aosta wine is excellent and very reasonably priced. Breakfast is the usual buffet style with a lovely array of choices from cheese, ham and hard boiled eggs to cereal and pastries. The décor of the hotel is delightful with lots of wood and a roaring fire in the lounge areas. The bedrooms are comfortable and spacious with free wifi access. The impending spa will only add to the experience. The skiing conditions were excellent on piste but unfortunately winds closed many of the links over the three days which meant we did not manage to get over to Zermatt. The local slopes of Valtournenche seem very quiet and offer very easy cruising for intermediate skiers. The long run down to the village is particularly enjoyable. Cervinia offers a wealth of long runs accessed by fast lifts in the main. Views of the Matterhorn are sensational. All in all, a very enjoyable break and we can’t wait to return to gain the full experience of the vast skiing area. And, of course, our preferred accommodation will be Les Rochers despite its slightly inconvenient location between Valtournenche and Cervina. Highly recommended.

We have stayed at Les Rochers twice now, both times could not have been better. Simon and Barbara are very welcoming, the rooms have an authentic feel with little luxuries like a corner bath in the bedroom (!). Dining is a joy, the food is truly excellent and Barbara's wine suggestions were perfect. Well placed for Pila as well as Cervinia (two quite contrasting ski areas) you should not miss out on this little gem.

We have had so many lovely holidays with family and friends at Les Rochers. Barbara and Simon always make us feel so welcome. The food is fabulous, and they have been flexible in the past with children's dining. We cant wait for next year!

Just returned from a fantastic week at Les Rochers and agree with all that has been said. Simon and Barbara and Barbara's mum - all wonderful, work like mad but still so easy going. The food is out of this world - the best I have had anywhere - and was thinking of not writing this review so as to keep the place a secret but that would be unfair! DEFINITELY going back again and the skiing at Cerviinia is wonderful too.

My two brothers, a grandson and myself have had a wonderful ski holiday, staying with Simon and Barbara in Les Rochers, and enjoying the beautiful pistes and glorious sunshine in Cervinia. We agree with everything that JCCM from London and Gill shaw said about the hotel and all that goes with it.. Nothing is too much trouble to these two people. This was ably demonstrated when a party of nine (I think) Britons arrived on a Saturday in March but their skis and luggage were still in Gatwick because of a power failure in the baggage department. By Sunday lunchtime they were skiing, dressed in clothes which Simon, Barbara and some of their staff donated. We loved the hotel, we loved the food, we loved the ambience, loved the drive up and down each day and enjoyed the conviviality in the bar each evening. By the way, Simon is also a golf instuctor and a hang-gliding instructor. The one thing we missed was a pool or jaccuzzi to rest our weary bones (average age, excluding the youngster, seventy six) was a swimming pool, but this will be put right for next season. So no need to guess where we will stay next year.

Cervinia is a wonderful place to ski. An efficient lift system. Beautifully manicured pistes. Great ski school. But the town itself is, well, a bit under-inspiring. The hotels tend to be large and impersonal - a bit like the architecture.

But ten minutes by car or complimentary minibus is a gem of a hotel. I've just enjoyed my second holiday at Les Rochers and this last week was just as good as the first. Barbara (Italian) and Simon (very British) look after their guests as if they are family friends, without ever being obtrusive. I arrived at the hotel after the rest of my party and was going to book a taxi to take me up to get my ski boots fitted. Barbara insited on driving me up the hill herself. Simon advised on the best places to ski, whilst tending an extremely well-stocked bar. He should know about good pistes - he is a qualified (and extraordinarily able) instructor and mountaineer. And, in the kitchen, Barbara's mother managed to oversee some of the best cooking I have ever tasted. Apart from my own Mum's, of course.

Rooms are comfortable, clean and unfussy. The TV receives both the BBC and ITV as well as local channels. The bar and dining room are 'alpine' in feel, with wood panelling and comfortable furniture. There's an open fire, a pool table and a bookshelf full of paperbacks that previous guests have left to share.

Building works will provide a few more rooms, without ruining the atmosphere - and a swimming pool.

I can't wait to visit again.
