As soon as you walk into the Hotel Castor you'll get a warm welcome. The Castor's have been running the hotel for four generations and greet each guest as though they know them.

Enjoy a hearty Italian, four-course meal in the authentic mountain setting of the hotel restaurant.

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.
