Italian escape: Courmayeur accommodation
Situated in northern Italy at the foot of Mont Blanc, Courmayeur is a lively village filled with cobbled streets, restaurants, bars and plenty of opportunities to enjoy the bustling après-ski atmosphere. With 100km of on and off-piste slopes, the area is best suited for intermediate skiers, although those who are looking for more of a thrill can enjoy the free-riding and even heli-skiing. Whilst staying in Courmayeur accommodation, the Sky Way is not to be missed. This cable car links the town to Chamonix in France with two stop points. At over 15km long, it offers incredible panoramic views, including the Aosta Valley, the Matterhorn and the Monte Rosa. Due to it's well-connected transport system, visitors are also able to access the glacial ski run of the Vallee Blanche in Chamonix, allowing the possibility to ski later than the standard season. Because of its location in Europe, staying in Courmayeur accommodation acts as an ideal base to explore the surrounding area and even countries. The Mont Blanc Tunnel will link you to France, while Geneva and Milan are possible to reach within a few hours. If you enjoy your Courmayeur accommodation, consider visiting other popular ski resorts for your next winter getaway, such as Sölden in Austria or Saint-Jean-d'Aulps in France.
