Overview - hotel description - Hotel Castor description

As soon as you walk into the Hotel Castor you'll get a warm, family welcome. The Castor's have been running the hotel for four generations and greet each guest as though they know them. It's ideally located in the historic centre of Champoluc - you'll reach the main Crest gondola in five minutes or so on foot.

There's a really nice cosy and comfortable ambiance throughout the hotel. You could spend hours relaxing, reading, drinking and socialising in the lounge bar. Once a week there's live music here and the place really comes alive. When it comes to dinner, you will be well fueled for your week in the mountains. Enjoy a hearty Italian, four-course meal in the authentic mountain setting of the hotel restaurant.

The Castor family provide a homely base for your winter holiday, as well as some extras that make for fantastic, memorable experiences; from exploring the back-country with a professional alpine guide, yoga and pilates courses to local wine tasting (all payable locally).

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 45 mins by coach from Turin airport.

Champ is the main resort in Ayas Valley, which is one of the three lift-linked valleys (Ayas, Gressoney and Sesia) that make up the Monterosa ski region. Sharing 180km of piste between them, Monterosa has been dubbed Italy’s very own Les Trois Vallees and won the ‘Best Upcoming Resort’ at the 2012 World Snow Awards. Sat in the shadow of Monte Rosa massif, the area is famous for its mind boggling views of the 4000m+ peaks including alpine legends Monte Blanc and the Matterhorn. As the largest of the Monteros...
Dubbed Les Trois Vallees of Italy, the Monterosa region has some fantastic piste and with the Monterosa Ski Pass as well, you’ll have free reign to ride any slope you desire. For beginners, Antagnod is a great starting point. A short bus journey outside the main town, it has a magic carpet and two chair lifts serving three blue slopes, one red and a short black. From the Frachey gondola, you can take the Alpe Mandria and enjoy the Del Lago blue back to the Frachey side, or cut off early and trying your hand a...
Watch the sun go down over the shoulders of Monte Blanc and the Matterhorn from 2400m at Refugio Belvedere’s sun terrace- also a perfect place for a spot lunch while descending the blue Belvedere. Rifugio Vieux Crest’s bar is also a very chilled out place for a beer. There’s a nice mix of independent as well as hotel based restaurants open to the public including Hotel Castor just across the road from the Champ’s church square. For great pizza cooked in a traditional wood burning oven, check out Kremer Tha...
