Accommodation in Courmayeur

Accommodation in Courmayeur

The long-standing popularity of Courmayeur makes sure there is always a wide choice of everything from weekend deals right through to full accommodation/ski hire/lift pass/tuition packages, some with flights and transfers included. Most of the deals involve hotel accommodation, although a number of UK tour operators offer catered chalets. For do-it-yourself independents, there’s a choice of over 50 hotels from four-star on down, including picturesque inns and hostelries in the heart of Courmayuer’s historic city centre.

In practical terms, the new hotels and apartments on the outskirts of the village are closer to the lifts and gondola, with the old quarter’s options right on top of much of the nightlife, and the choice between the two simply depending on personal priorities.

At the upscale level, a number of four-star hotels boast pools, hot tubs, saunas, good restaurants and luxury accommodation with glorious views of the mountains from upper floors. In the old quarter, expect traditional comfort, often furnished and decorated with antiques and loaded with atmosphere. Bed and breakfast places are found here for those on limited budgets.

Further out in Entreves, more rustic farmhouse lodgings might suit and there’s a choice of small, family-run inns adding to the charm of staying in this historic location.
