Chalet Piccolo

Chalet Piccolo is a quiet hotel with traditional decor. The centre is a short walk away and the ski bus stops next to the hotel. This means you will be on the slopes in no time. The comfortable rooms, like the rest of the hotel, have a warm and cosy atmosphere. After a wonderful day on the slopes exploring the ski area, you can walk to the bustling centre for a few drinks at one of the many après-ski bars. If you fancy a quieter evening, sit at a wine bar and enjoy the delicious local wines and a heartwarming bowl of pasta.
