About Aosta Valley
The Aosta Valley is a tiny alpine region, but it’s also the tallest in Europe, home to Mont Blanc, Gran Paradiso and Monte Rosa. Arranged along the dramatic Dora Baltea river, with its 13 subsidiary river valleys, which have collectively carved out some of the region’s glacial landscape, this is a spectacular, and heavily protected area. Our Gurus can’t usually resist a spectacular view, so many of their recommendations for the best places to stay in the Aosta Valley have views nothing less than divine. But if the view from your hotel isn’t a huge priority then they also have some great ski chalets, some excellent value guesthouses and small hotels and some luxurious, pampering havens of relaxation on their list of the best places to stay in the Aosta Valley.
There’s obviously amazing hiking and climbing in the Aosta Valley - especially in its two national parks, the Gran Paradiso National Park and the Mont Avic Natural Park - and several spectacular ski resorts, but it may surprise you to hear that there are also some impressive Roman monuments, a number of notable Romanesque churches and several beautiful medieval castles.
Courmayeur is situated just through the Mont Blanc tunnel from Chamonix and is renowned for its excellent mountain restaurants and sunny slopes, plus a buzzy town centre.
La Thuile is quieter, which also means less crowded pistes, though not much if it's apres-ski you're after.
Champoluc is the largest resort in the Monterosa region and boasts a huge range of pistes (it's often referred to as Italy's Three Valleys) and fabulous off piste terrain.
Aosta not only offers world class hiking and skiing, but it also has a charming historic centre, some superb Roman ruins and spectacular views
The Aosta valley is also a wine growing region, and the local Gamay is definitely worth a try - it goes very well accompanied by a fire, after a long day exploring this divine terrain!
But don't leave it to the last minute if you want to be sure of a bed in one of the best places to stay in the Aosta Valley. These places get very busy both in winter and summer.
