About Courmayeur

If your ski resort dream includes an Alpine backdrop appropriate for a muesli box, and a pedestrianised old stone village centre, then Courmayeur is for you. Everywhere you look it's charming. From the soft glow of old street lamps to the blazing fires within the chalets, enticing you in for some of the valley's liveliest après-ski. Accommodation wise the best places to stay in Courmayeur range from the budget Bouton d'Or to the luxurious Coeur des Neiges chalet complex.

As well as the 140kms of downhill runs Courmayeur has some great cross country skiing options. Some of which become walking or mountain biking trails in the summer months.

Until 1965 when a tunnel between Chamonix and Courmayer was opened, this was an Alpine spa town. Which is probably why Courmayeur looks so different to some of the more purpose built ski resorts.

If you like to mix a bit of sightseeing and culture into your skiing holiday, visit the Museo Alpino Duca deli Abruzzi and find out about the region's dramatic history.

For skiiers

The majority of Courmayeur's runs are beginner or intermediate level, but this is also a great base for experienced skiers who want to ski the rest of the Chamonix Valley and the exhiliarating Vallée Blanche.

  • If you're looking for a traditional ski chalet, one with great fur rugs, exposed beams and giant roaring fires, one of the best places to stay in Courmayeur is Au Coeur des Neiges. As well as rooms in a rather large chalet, there are also smaller chalets - so it's like a chalet community. This is perfect for families as some of the chalets are like homes from home. The spa and restaurant both have excellent reputations and you're only two minutes from the cable car.
  • If you're on a budget book the Bouton d'Or. Simple and cute, this hotel has views worth a lot more than the £67 per night the rates start from.
  • Villa Novecento is a good choice if you're looking for somewhere with atmosphere. This charming villa looks glamorous from the outside, and has a rustic elegance on the inside. Think oil paintings, Baroque decorations, and heavy fabrics - but in chintzy patterns.

Courmayeur in Summer

With around 280kms of mapped walking or biking trails, Courmayeur is an excellent summer sports destination. There's also a golf course with spectacular views, birdwatching and kayaking.

  • One of the best places to stay in Courmayeur in any season, the Auberge de la Maison is a chic, sloping roofed chalet in a hamlet just outside town with stunning 360 degree views. Its quiet location makes it a great destination for birdwatching.
  • The Hotel Cresta et Duc is a more contemporary option. The decor in the rooms is white and pine, so there's a feeling of clean simplicity. Just off the Via Roma, this is also an excellent choice if you want to be right in the heart of town.
