Courmayeur is nestled under the 14 peaks of the Mont Blanc massif. It is arguably the most sophisticated resort in the Aosta Valley, with a charming cobbled pedestrianised town centre offering a wealth of chic shops, cafes, bars, restaurants and pizzerias with a friendly yet stylish Italian feel.

It is situated on the Italian side of Mont Blanc, Western Europe’s highest mountain, at the top of the Aosta Valley. The resort offers great skiing for all abilities, particularly intermediate and developing skiers. There are many off-piste opportunities including the world famous Vallee Blanche, the 24km run from Italy into Chamonix, France.

In true Italian spirit the mountain restaurants offer outstanding cuisine and hospitality with lunches sometimes running into 2 hours and finished off with an Italian grappa or the local limoncello.
