Apartments La Fonte are authentic apartments spread over two buildings. They are just outside the centre of Livigno, with the Carasello ski lift a short distance away. A ski bus stop is also nearby, so it's easy to explore the different parts of the area.
After a day on the slopes, you can put together a lovely meal in your apartment, or head to one of the excellent restaurants in the centre for dinner. End your day out in style, with an exquisite Italian wine.
The apartments all belong to different owners and are spread over the village. The interior can therefore differ per apartment and, if you book several apartments, we cannot guarantee that they will be located in the same building. The photos shown are only examples.
Livigno, a (duty-free) ski area, is on the boarder of Italy and Switzerland, 25 miles from Bormio. Livigno is one of the largest and highest ski areas in the region. Although it is such a large area, it came from humble beginnings as a series of three small villages along a short stretch of road. Nowadays, the Livigno streets are lined with charming old buildings. The village is known for its extreme cold, so don’t forget to pack your thermals. It can get so cold in the area that it has been nicknamed “Piccolo Tibet” by the locals. There is no need to worry too much about the cold though, as there are plenty of bars and restaurants where you can warm up and grab some delicious pizza or pasta. Dining out in Livigno is affordable, and there are also over 200 duty-free shops in the area to take advantage of.
The ski resort has lots to offer for both novice and experienced skiers/snowboarders. At Mottolino, there is a half pipe and a snow park for the snowboarders amongst us. Cross-country skiers and hikers can enjoy themselves there too.
