Italy is a country of real contrasts from Roman ruins, the Italian Lakes, The Dolomites and Aosta Valley, vineyards and the Mediterranean islands of Sardinia and Sicily.
The Aosta Valley and the Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are renowned for the uniqueness of their landscapes and access to an enviable number of mountain based activities from ski touring, road and mountain biking, climbing and downhill skiing. They also represent great value for money, combining great food and wine with genuine local hospitality that leaves visitors with great empathy for the area.
In the Aosta Valley Champoluc has long been a favourite and a ‘hidden gem’ that we have long recommended to friends and family for its ‘off the beaten track’ location, charming hospitality and authenticity. In the Dolomites we have selected three villages in the Alta Badia region; Corvara, San Cassiano and La Villa, for their natural charm, access to the wider Dolomite playground and the intriguing blend of Mediterranean joie de vivre with Tyrolean efficiency – not to mention the spellbinding landscapes of towering monoliths of limestone that rise almost vertically to the clouds.
