"The Edelweiss is a cosy and fun hotel, ideal for those wanting quality half-board accommodation on a limited budget. Sauze d’Oulx offers a massive 400km skiing area, linking with Sestriere and Montgenevre in France."
Chalet Hotel Edelweiss, Sauze D'Oulx, Italy
As part of an exclusive collection to Iglu Ski, Chalet Hotel Edelweiss offers free ski guiding and coaching with fully qualified ski and snowboard instructors. Various sessions run throughout the week to introduce you to the ski area and improve your technique along the way. Skiers and snowboarders wishing to take part need to be over 18 (or 12 in school holidays) and be good enough to ski down blue and red pistes. You can sign up for the sessions at the chalet on your first day in resort.
This is a small, chalet-style gem of a hotel on the outskirts of Sauze d'Oulx. Its location could not be better for keen skiers and snowboarders as the Jouvenceaux Sportinia lift is just 50m away, so you can ski or board to it straight from the boot room! And for those that are comfortable on red runs, it's possible to ski back to the hotel too.
There's a lovely, typically Italian laid-back atmosphere thanks to the intimate bar and snug lounge with its open fire. The dining area is also rustically styled with original stone walls and wooden ceilings. Plenty of wooden furnishings creates an authentic mountain feel too. And being on the outskirts of Sauze means that the views across the valley are spectacular, particularly from the large sun terrace.
Sauze's legendary nightlife is about 1km up the hill and ski buses run every 30 minutes or so from a stop a couple of minutes' walk away. There's also a hotel shuttle bus that we run regularly to the resort centre between 5pm & 10pm every day. Alternatively, the small village of Jouvenceaux has a couple of restaurants and bars that are only a few minutes away.
To help you relax at the end of the day, there's a small wellness area with a hot tub, sauna and small treatment room offering sports and relaxing massages. The Edelweiss really does tick all of the boxes for a great little ski hotel.
