In a perfect ski-in/ski-out location, opposite the Clotes chairlift and only 2 minutes’ walk from the village's cobbled centre. The Hermitage is well known in Sauze and located in a fantastic position overlooking the slopes on the main ski run back to the village.
This popular hotel has a welcoming atmosphere, with beautiful mountain views and a reputation for serving good hearty Italian food.
A lively, fun and friendly resort, offering excellent value and big skiing!
Sauze d'Oulx in the Milky Way ski area is a vibrant resort with a lively après scene that has long appealed to British visitors. The resort offers plentiful tree-lined skiing and wide open, cruising that is ideal for intermediate skiers and improving beginners. The extensive lift system has made access to the 400km of on-piste skiing simple and efficient.
The Sauze pistes are spread across a north and west facing, snow bowl which is great at preserving snow conditions, making the resort perfect for sampling powder skiing. A definite highlight is the 1300m descent from the top of Monte Fraiteve, skiing all the way to the valley floor at Jovenceaux.
Beyond Sauze the Milky Way ski area extends all the way to the high altitude resort of Sestriere, and across the border with France to the iconic resort of Montgenèvre. The Milky Way offers a huge variety of skiing and snowboarding, perfect for the discerning wintersports enthusiast.
As well as excellent skiing, the old centre of the mountain village, with its cobbled streets, offers an attractive escape from the mountain when the ski legs start to get sore. This bustling resort is home to a great variety of pubs, bars, and restaurants all of which contribute to the lively, welcoming atmosphere.
Sauze’s reputation for offering reasonably priced food and drink is justified and has helped cement its reputation as a popular après destination. And the fabulous range of restaurants and pizzerias, both on and off the mountain, offer delicious Italian food that caters for all tastes.
