Madonna di Campiglio Reviews
Simply the best all round family ski resort for skiers and snow boarders alike. Rifugios are welcoming and serve great food at reasonable prices.Beautiful views and linked to 2 other resorts via lifts. Hotels are all modern and chic with Lorenzetti and Des Alpes the best. Hotel laura in the centre is real gem having had a really great update. Chic and classy is the sum up and 35 yrs skiing this resort is a credit to the town. Ferrari & Ducati can`t be wrong having had their annual week skiing here for 22yrs.Valentino Rossi has a place here and is seen on the slopes snowboarding...... though disguised he loves it when he`s spotted !!
