Overview - apartment description - Francescato Apartments description

Based right in the heart of the San Rocco area of Livigno, these are popular spacious and great value apartments. The styling is quite traditional but the space and quality of the furnishings makes up for that as all were hand-made by the owner's woodworking company.

They are perfectly located right next to the ski slopes, close to the ski lifts and the tuition meeting point. The bustling centre of Livigno isn't much further, just 800m. And don't forget the bar next door, Garni Francescato - it's the perfect place for a cold beer or a glass of wine in the evening after cooking up a delicious meal in your own apartment. There's also the popular Marco's bar and equipment hire shop just 100m away.

One of Italy’s highest resorts Duty free shopping Authentic Alpine village

Livigno’s fast climbing the ladder of Europe’s favourite resorts... and rightly so. We love the snow sure skiing, world class terrain parks and tax-free pricetag of après and shopping, not to mention the mountain charm you’d expect from a resort rubbing shoulders with St Moritz and the delectable food you’d expect anywhere in Italy.

Previously voted 'Best European Resort' at the World Snow Awards, Livigno is a snow-sure mountain town, much loved by skiers from Europe and beyond. Stretching 10km along the Spöl valley with mountains on either side and bordering Switzerland's famous ski classic St Moritz, this is a place you'll find authentic alpine charm in every nook and cranny with a friendly, cosmopolitan atmosphere. It's not just the high slopes, and attractive village that makes Livigno so hugely popular – its tax-free status is a m...
Various schools like Centrale offer various lessons - from playtime tuition for tots to freestyle sessions if you want to crank things up a bit. Kids will love the Yepi trail, which is dedicated to little legs with obstacles and toys. Gentle blues can be accessed from resort height, so beginners won’t be heading up any mountains without getting a feel for the snow first. Short blue runs served by draglifts from the resort fringes are great for practising before you tackle the longer blues from Vletta Blessac...
With low and cheerful prices when it comes to drinks thanks to Livigno’s duty-free prices, you’ll find some pretty amazing après ski. There’s always a party going down at the ever-popular Daphne’s Pub – a favourite with Brits for its authentic Baita interior, Irish-influenced après, super cocktail menu and legendary Bombardino beverage (you can’t say you’ve experienced Italian après without trying one of these). For a more sophisticated evening, pop into one of the hotels like la Casetta and soak up th...

"Basic but adequate"

K.L., Yorkshire
5/ out of 5
The apartments are basic but very, very adequate. The proprietor’s attention to detail is amazing and they always make us feel so welcome. The one we stayed in last time had a big living-kitchen area, with a sofa, table, 6 chairs and a good cooker for self catering (or you can eat in the proprietor’s restaurant depending on which apartment you stay in). It was all very clean and had some fabulous French doors leading out to a double balcony. The two bedrooms were basic but good, each with a double bed and plenty of blankets and storage space for clothing and suitcases. The bathroom was also very clean. In terms of the location, the apartments are right next to the main road that goes through Livigno and about 200m from the ski hire shop. Livigno ski school is 50m from the apartments, the little travellator that beginners can use to get up the first stage of the mountain is about 150m away and the first poma is 250m. Each afternoon at lunchtime we could ski back to 20m of the ski locker. There are plenty of restaurants and bars within 50-60 metres and 2 supermarkets within 50- 60 metres. You can catch the bus or walk down to town about 10-15m for the duty free shopping and nightlife. The Francescato apartments are in a part of the town called San Rocco and as you walk to the main part of Livigno there are more and more shops, bars and restaurants. The resort has 3 buses: a red bus, a blue bus and a yellow bus and all are free with the lift pass. You can get the taxi anywhere in the resort for 5€ and to get back from Mottolino you can cram as many people into a people carrier as possible for 10€. For the Mottolino side, get the red bus from the stop right outside the apartments, it’s a 10 minute journey - jump out the bus and into the cable car and you're up the mountain. We like to stay in an apartment because it makes you a free operator, you can cook for yourself if you want although the food in Livigno is so cheap that you can eat out all the time. The cost of eating out is pretty much the same you would get in Britain: you can get a top notch pizza that you can hardly manage to finish for 7-8€, a top locally sourced steak for 15-17€ and a homemade spaghetti dish for 8€. Half the fun is going to eat at different places and talking to the chefs and proprietors. Marco’s pub is adjacent to the Francescato apartments (about 100m away) and does everything from spaghetti and burgers to steak.
