Ski hire Sestrière
Did you know that by coming to Sestriere, you will be staying in the highest town in Italy? Situated at 2035m, the Piedmontese resort welcomes you for winter sports holidays as we imagine them: endless slopes, sunshine of course, a change of scenery and, above all, adapted and personalised services so that you can think of only one thing: savouring every moment!
An atypical history
Before coming to Sestriere, let's study its history... rather recent! Before 1934, the resort did not exist, there was only a mountain village, perched at more than 2000m. Under the will of Mussolini, Sestriere gained its own identity and broke away from the canton of Cesana Torinese in the 1930s. Businessmen quickly saw an opportunity to make money by bringing holidaymakers to ski in this place where everything could be done. The winter tourism industry was started by the Agnelli family, owners of the Fiat company, who built the first hotels in the resort. The hotels were built in the shape of a tower and are still part of the landscape today. The resort then rapidly developed into a ski Mecca, hosting world and Olympic ski competitions.
In the heart of the Milky Way
If you arrive in Sestriere at night, you will understand why the resort is part of the ski area nicely named "Milky Way": the resort culminates in the middle of a fabulous circus, lit by the stars and torchlit descents. The view is breathtaking, the impression immense. Sestriere is part of this stellar area, along with Sauze d'Oulx, Sansicaro, Cesana, Clavière, Oulx, Pragelato and the French resort of Montgenevre. On more than 400 km of slopes, you will slide, accompanied by the sun, between Italy and France. A majestic area that hosted the 2006 Turin Olympics. Whatever your level, the slopes await you for a new experience. Go for it, you won't regret it.
La Dolce Vita
Spending your holidays, even in winter, in Italy means enjoying a country where life is gentle and peaceful. Sestriere has understood this and has developed a range of services adapted to relaxation, combining ease and choice. From shops, restaurants and bars to off-ski activities, the Piedmontese resort promises you a peaceful stay. From clothing to restaurants, from the ice rink to the cinema, from the starred hotel to the rental studio, it's all a question of desire: yours! Let yourself be carried away by the Piedmontese current: you'll see how pleasant it is to spend a "relaxed" holiday!
