Lovely and interesting ski resort exactly on the French/Italian border. Cute little village with a nice atmosphere, bells ringing from the church and original old village architecture. Friendly and helpful locals. English widely spoken. Two excellent ski schools, better than in bigger resorts particularly for beginners/children/intermediates. Pretty ski area with lots of trees and unthreatening mountains with extremely wide open pistes that give early intermediate type skiers confidence. Only one hour and half from Turin by direct coach/bus (three hours by public transport). Very easy to ski to the Italian side, either over the top of the mountain (easy red) or by ski-walking the green that follows the road - lots of very pretty little pistes this side and several good Italian restaurants. Very few lift queues. Standard of skiing observed in many cases was surprisingly high - there is nothing really on piste for experts but off piste and through the trees, there are many possibilities, so probably attracting local, experienced skiers. Nice quality of snow, even at the end of March. A couple of little not very well stocked supermarkets - alternatively lots of little cafes, some offering takeaway, and a couple of very good bars with an element of old-fashioned apres ski (eg immediately after skiing starting around 6pm) live bands, etc. (la Graal). Worth taking a bus to Sestriere to take advantage of the one day lift pass extension to Milky Way or the fantastic resort of Serre Chevalier.
