Ski back to near chalet


If you like your rooms straight off the pages of an interiors magazine, then Chalet Baita 1697 might be right up your strada.

This stunning 17th-century Piedmontese farmhouse has been reconstructed and redesigned as a fabulous luxury ski chalet in Sestriere that demonstrates the very best in natural decor – rustic woods, rough-hewn stone and tactile fur throws, bringing relaxed comfort everywhere you look.

At the heart of this luxury ski chalet is the living area with a spectacular vaulted stone ceiling, roaring fire, statement furniture and super-cosy sofas. There’s also a separate media room (which converts into a bedroom) complete with all you could need for a relaxing afternoon in front of a movie or listening to music.

If you prefer your downtime with a little more fresh air, take a drink out onto the terrace where you can relax in the hot tub with a mountain view.

This luxury ski chalet is just a three-minute walk to cross-country pistes, a heli-ski launch pad, as well as a cable car that will take you to the ‘Milky Way’ Olympic piste and not forgetting the chair lift to fabulous downhill slopes where you can virtually ski right to your chalet’s front door. There is so much to do when you head out from the chalet.

On your return, simply leave your ski boots on heated racks in the ski room and head upstairs where you will be greeted by a delicious afternoon tea, perfect after a day on the slopes.

Truly, this is a luxury ski chalet designed for practicality as well as prettiness.

“One of my favourite places to holiday. The variety of skiing is sensational, even in a poor season. The local restaurants are out of this world and great value for money and as far as Baita 1697 goes, it is by far one of the most relaxing, cosy and luxurious homes, I have stayed in.” Emma Sherrard Matthew.

“Best family holiday so far. Those Italians know how to do skiing and staying in Baita 1697….well it just doesn’t get much better!” Chris Terry

“From the breathtaking views to the microscopic attention to detail, this is surely the definition of luxury.” Divia Harilela

Your private cook will prepare a hearty continental breakfast of pastries, muffins, LA style granola, bread and butter with local honey, jams and other spreads, as well as teas, coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice.

Menus are usually locally inspired but also include some Asian flavours, such as the chalet’s renowned Burmese beef curry. There are also a variety of vegetarian options available and your chef will happily put together a kids’ menu too. A selection of wines selected by a sommelier are served with meals.

If you prefer to self-cater, you can choose to do so and take advantage of the fridge-stocking service so that you begin your break stocked up with a range of essentials and local delicacies. Additionally in the evenings, dinner for up to 12 adults can be arranged.

Within walking distance there are several wonderful restaurants, featuring Italian-French fusion and award-winning pizza. It’s well worth experiencing the imaginative food scene here, which is extremely reasonably priced in comparison to some of the more ‘well trodden’ resorts in the area.
