The chalet-style residence is in the charming village of Grangesises, just a 5-minute drive from the resort of Sestriere. The residence is in the middle of the village, close to the small piazza. There is very little traffic in the cobbled streets, making it a peaceful haven. However, Grangesises is far from dull and hosts many events throughout the year, from dances to concerts and group mountain bike rides.
Sestriere, which hosted the 2006 Winter Olympics, has much to offer. In the winter months, the slopes around the resort suit skiers and snowboarders of all levels. There is cross-country skiing, heli-skiing, ice skating, motor sledging, dog sledging and snowshoeing.
Summer visitors can go hiking through the forests and alpine meadows. There are numerous tracks for mountain biking at all levels, as well as tennis, golf and swimming.
There are many great restaurants and bars in Grangesises and Sestriere, which will suit all tastes and budgets. For self-catering, Sestriere has supermarkets and smaller shops selling local specialities.
Turin airport is a 1 hour and 30 minutes drive from the apartment.
