Recently restored 4* hotel offering fantastic accommodation

The Duca d’Aosta is one the city’s leading hotels – and it’s not hard to see why. The hotel has kept its original brick façade contrasting with elegant interiors featuring Italian style reminiscent of the mid-1900s. The bedrooms have been finished to an equally high standard with French oak floorboards and retro design. In the heart of the town, this hotel is the perfect base to explore this historic city as well as for getting to the gondola.
The bus stops 20m from hotel or just 10 minutes’ walk (850m) to the Pila gondola.

Pila has two centres – one is the old town of Aosta, which is gondola-linked, but 18km away. The other is Pila itself - a modern resort, sat right next to the slopes. Aosta has plenty for the non-skier to do, including shops, cafés and historic sites. Pila is mainly for those whose emphasis is on skiing, with limited après-ski and nightlife. Aosta is a cheaper place to stay in, but you can't ski to your door, whereas you can in Pila itself.
In terms of the slopes, there are 70km locally with a good snow record and access to the near 800km offered by the entire Aosta Valley. Pila favours beginners, intermediates and especially families. This is a very Italian resort, so other languages aren't spoken a great deal at the ski school. Better skiers don't have too many challenges either, although there is heli-skiing on offer. Boarders will like Pila, with its half-pipe and jumps. The people are very friendly, the lift system is excellent and the scenery is awesome, with Mont Blanc in the distance. Overall, you'll have a choice of where to stay, with each location having its pluses and minuses. We recommend staying in Pila, but if you want a day off the slopes, take the gondola down for lots of non-skiing activities. If you have a car, Courmayeur, La Thuile and Cervinia are relatively close by for more varied skiing.
