We had a very good week, the hotel is absolutely great! It suited me and my wife down to the ground. The only downside is that you’ve got to get onto the minibus to get to the slopes, you couldn’t have walked it, but the bus was always on time and it only took about 10 minutes. I’d definitely go back and... + more

We all had a very good time here, the hotel’s a bit dated but this was more than made up for by the friendliness of the place; everyone was really nice and obliging. The food was lovely, traditional Italian meals with a lot of variety every night and a big choice at breakfast. The rooms we used were all fine a... + more

The hotel was lovely, it’s in a great location but the beds were absolutely horrendous. The mattresses were made from a horribly hard foam and were just dreadful to sleep on. They were accommodating about it, I asked for a couple of soft duvets and they gave us a blanket. A lot of people staying there were hav... + more

This package holiday to Grand Besson in Sauze d'Oulx, Italy departs Tuesday 3rd January 2017, for a 5 night stay on a "half board" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

Tree-lined plateaus, wide lengths of varied terrain and beautiful scenery make up the skiing here. Beginners will find the nursery slopes at the foot of the Clotes chair and the lift takes you to the main ski area at Sportina where lessons also take place. You don't have to conquer the lift process before even having the snow under your ski's- regular shuttle buses provide an easy ride for beginners to get out on to the piste.

Infamously known as the best area for après ski in the Italian Alps, there's something for everyone here, from chilled out cocktail bars to cosy balcony café's and lively party places. Having disposed of its previous branding as the Ibiza on the slopes, the resort has a much more refined feel, whilst maintaining the dynamic après atmosphere.

"Couldn’t fault it"

David Hearn, Portsmouth
5/ out of 5
We had a very good week, the hotel is absolutely great! It suited me and my wife down to the ground. The only downside is that you’ve got to get onto the minibus to get to the slopes, you couldn’t have walked it, but the bus was always on time and it only took about 10 minutes. I’d definitely go back and wouldn’t be put off by the fact that you have to get the minibus. Although you need the bus for the slopes, you’re just a short stroll into the town if you want a bit of nightlife (and the nightlife is really nice in Sauze d’Oulx, it doesn’t have the “Benidorm” reputation any more!). I’d heard a lot of people complain about the size of rooms before, but I found that the size of the room for 2 people was more than adequate. Everything in the hotel was finished to a high standard, the bar was good and the fitness/jacuzzi area was excellent. The food was exceptional – I’ve stayed in other Italian resorts and usually say that the best way to do it is B&B so you can eat out, but you couldn’t have got better food than we got in the hotel itself. They had lots of traditional Italian stuff, you might not like it if you’re a bit picky but we loved it.

"Very friendly hotel, lovely week!"

We all had a very good time here, the hotel’s a bit dated but this was more than made up for by the friendliness of the place; everyone was really nice and obliging. The food was lovely, traditional Italian meals with a lot of variety every night and a big choice at breakfast. The rooms we used were all fine and the bus that took us up to the slopes every morning was great.

"Lovely hotel but take a mattress topper!"

Mrs Gardner, Surrey

The hotel was lovely, it’s in a great location but the beds were absolutely horrendous. The mattresses were made from a horribly hard foam and were just dreadful to sleep on. They were accommodating about it, I asked for a couple of soft duvets and they gave us a blanket. A lot of people staying there were having trouble, people were using their fleeces as mattress toppers... With the holiday, adults got 75 euros each behind the bar but they didn’t give children anything, which in effect made the children more expensive than adults because they were drinking things like coke throughout the week. They should probably either extend the deal to children or get rid of it altogether. Other than this everything else was good!
