    The Hotel Gran Baita has long been a favourite with Crystal customers with its warm Alpine interiors and friendly staff. It’s a charming, family-run affair in a quieter part of Sauze d’Oulx, but still close to the nightlife and ski bus stop, which are each just a 2-minute walk.

    The clean and comfortable rooms are spacious and feature Italian chalet-style décor with some contemporary touches. Each room is carpeted with wooden furniture and private bathrooms. And there’s a selection of rooms available from singles to family rooms for up to five people.

    After a long day on the mountain, pamper yourself in the hotel’s wellness area. Treat yourself to a spell in the Scandinavian sauna, massage shower and relaxation area. The rustic lounge bar with its authentic wood panelling is the place for friendly pre-drinks or cosy nights in – with its open fireplace, sofas and family games.

    Meals are served in the traditional Italian dining room. Each morning, set yourself up with a selection of hot and cold buffet. The excellent restaurant serves a nightly feast of homemade Italian cuisine with Italian antipasti. A 3-course evening meal comes with a choice of menu and salad buffet.

    What's Nearby

    The hotel is just a 5 minutes’ walk up to the Clotes chairlift or a 12 minutes’ walk up to the Sportinia chairlift. Either one takes you into the heart of the Milky Way ski area, with Sportinia having a variety of lively bars and restaurants, and is the meeting point for ski school. If you don’t fancy the walk, jump on the ski bus just 2 minutes from the hotel. It’s not free but it’ll save you the ski boot struggle. A 2-minute walk will get you into the centre of the town. Lively bars including Miravallino and a little further up to The Village are great for an evening out.

    Safety advice

    Please note that safety standards around balconies, railings and public walkways are different in Italy and may be lower or have ornamental features that you wouldn’t see in the UK or Ireland.

    For your own safety and that of everyone you’re travelling with, please make sure you take care not to lean on or over any railings. If you have children under 12 years, please make sure they’re supervised and not left alone at any time.

    Getting Here

    With lots of pedestrianised and cobbled, narrow streets, coach access in Sauze d’Oulx is fairly limited. When you arrive in resort, the coaches will drop you off at the Tourist Information Centre in resort. From here, you’ll leave your luggage with us – we’ll sort out all the logistics of transporting your things to your accommodation – before heading off on a resort walkabout with our reps who will help you get your bearings and escort you to the Hotel Gran Baita, an 8-minute walk away. Make sure you wear some sturdy shoes and warm clothing - it can get a bit snowy underfoot.

Ratings

With all the various national tourist boards applying widely varying criteria to hotel ratings, the whole question of international hotel grades has become confused. We have therefore applied our own 'rating', representing the general standards of that country in order that fairer comparisons can be made.

Please note: rating may differ from the official star rating of the local tourist board. Our classifications take into account not only the basic facilities, but also the location, leisure facilities, general character and atmosphere of the hotel, as well as customer feedback. Chalet ratings give comparisons with other chalets but do not provide like for like comparisons with the ratings of full service hotels.

Your package price and availability

Our website's prices and flight, accommodation and room availability are updated every morning. To calculate average price per person, applicable discounts are subtracted from your total cost, which is then divided by the number of adults and children (excluding infants). A full price breakdown can be viewed on the payment page.

In some circumstances, prices and availability may update during the day so you may find price/availability differences later in the booking process.

This is usually due to high demand for the selected holiday. Should you have any issues with this, please contact us or see here for more information.
