Apartment | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Our accommodation is a spacious first floor, self catering, apartment (130 sq metres), in a small communal block of 10, finished to a very high specification.
The apartment is located in the heart of the town, just 50 yards from the main street and its shops, restaurants and bars in a restricted traffic area. It is only 100 metres from the ski bus stop or a short 10-15 minute walk to the nearest ski lift (where, at a small charge, you can leave your ski's and boots overnight).

Bardonecchia’s well-groomed pistes played host to some key events in the 2006 Turin Winter Olympics, including the snowboarding giant slalom, women's downhill and half pipe. The Ski bus, free with a weekly lift pass, connects the three main ski areas. You can ski between areas.

An extension to the lift pass to cover the famous Milky Way area is also available for those who want to explore these popular adjacent resorts.
