Club Esse Pila 2000
What We Love
- Charming three-star stay in Italy’s Aosta Valley at the heart of the Alps - includes full boardSkiing in one of the most snow-sure resorts in the Italian Alps
- A bend-over-backwards level of service from the lovely staff
- Staying in rustic accommodation with a cosy feel
There are few places as dazzling for lovers of the white stuff as Aosta Valley – the mountainous snow-sure ski region in the far north-west of Italy that is surrounded by some of the highest peaks in Europe: the Mont-Blanc, the Matterhorn, Monte Rosa and Gran Paradiso.
So it is no surprise that this three-star property set in the area’s purpose-built ski resort of Pila is such a hit for those craving high slopes, exhilarating off-piste terrain, lively après-ski action and a fair few cultural thrills. Located just a 20-minute gondola ride from the old Roman town of Aosta, it has all the essentials of a fun-filled alpine stay: on-site restaurant serving hearty fare, nightly shows and cabarets, complimentary ski and ski-shoes storage, and disco for post-ski partying.
If you like your après-ski accommodation rustic both inside and out, all of the 43 rooms satisfy with traditional wooden chalet-style décor and stunning views of the surrounds. Proving to be the perfect crash pads after long days on the slopes, each is simply designed, wonderfully cosy, and filled with all the necessary home-from-home comforts.
How to Get There
Perfectly located to walk onto snow and start skiing. Simple accommodation but clean. The food was an excellent selection of Italian home cuisine. The staff are helpful, friendly and handle children entertainment very well.
Club Esse Pila 200 is perfectly located (although not easy to find for the first time visit) Very friendly staff and Excellent food! Rooms are slightly dated but clean! Perfect for families with kids for the kids club and entertainment!
Pila is a really good ski resort for beginners to intermediates, particularly families. There is generally plenty of snow, most of the pistes are blues/reds and nice and wide. Outside of the school holidays there is plenty of room to ski and lifts are not too busy, the scenery mountains and woodland are beautiful, Club Esse Pila 2000 is a really friendly hotel. The staff are kind and extremely friendly and welcoming and can't do enough for you. The food is generally good value for money with a good selection, rooms are clean. There are some nice restaurants on the mountain but you can't access these after 1700 when ski lifts close. In Pila itself there is a limited choice of bars and restaurants, you would have to go to Aosta itself for nightlife so evenings can be a little quiet. I In the hotel there is good entertainment for young children in the evening and a little karaoke for adults but limited, the bar manager is charming as are the entertainment staff. Overall I would say it is a good place to improve your skiing, the people are helpful, friendly and welcoming. Riccardo Ski is a good place to get your ski hire and is run by a lovely family, however if you want a lot of apres ski then you should chose a livelier resort. However, I went with my son and we had a great time.
