Chalet Piccolo Sogno
The extensive ski resort of Cervinia/Valtournenche is situated in Italy’s scenic Aosta Valley.
With extensions over the border into Zermatt, Switzerland, and known as the ‘Queen of the Snow’, this vast snowy area begins at 1,524m in Valtournenche, embraces Breuil-Cervinia at 2050m and rises up to Plateau Rosa at 3,488m, the 4,000-metre peak of Piccolo Cervino (Klein Matterhorn) and climbs to the 4,478m peak of the Matterhorn.
As this region is so high, we are generally blessed with longer seasons that most resorts in the Alps and they generally run from the end of November though to the end of April.
Piccolo Sogno is a gorgeous & homely chalet with breathtaking views. The chalet is very well equipped and so relaxing that you will not feel the need to go out to eat after a hard day's skiing. It features open-plan living with a modern kitchen and fireplace and large French doors onto a balcony with fantastic views.
The chalet can ideally accommodate 4 couples (8) adults or 3 couples and up to 4 children. The sleeping accommodation comprises of 4 double bedrooms and three bathrooms described as follows:
The loft - a double bedroom with an en-suit bathroom; a double room which has a double bunk bed, ideal for children, or a couple and two further double bedrooms.
There are 2 more bathrooms, one of which has a large shower/steam room.
There is a fully equipped laundry and a separate playroom for the children which can also be used for accommodating a nanny/child minder.
The chalet also benefits from a steam room.
The chalet is equipped with 2 televisions and 2 DVD players, a video machine and a hi-fi system; it also has an IPod Bose docking system.
There is a separate outdoor room for skis and storage.
Bakery and deli's as well as restaurants are on your doorstep as are the ski slopes.
Cervinia's biggest asset is altitude. At 2050m, with slopes rising to 3883m, it is one of Europe's most snow-sure resorts, set against a superb glacial backdrop. It's a place where long snow runs right down to village level are virtually guaranteed from the beginning of December until early May.
Summer skiing continues on the glacier throughout the year. Seven lifts serve 21km of prepared piste through out summer with an enormous out-of-season vertical drop of 1000m in the right conditions.

Activities of Interest
- Snow Skiing
- Great skiing for all levels in a spectacular setting both in the winter and in the summer on the Plateau Rosa glacier.
- For hiking lovers, Cervinia has some fantastic trails in spectacular settings for all abilities.
- Mountain-biking is very popular in the area with excellent rides. Every summer the Maxiavalanche competition is held here starting at 3500mt of altitude on the Plateau Rosa glaciers. Racers zoom all the way down to the village of Cervinia.
Places of Interest
- The apres-ski is not too shabby for a smallish resort. La Bricole has a popular happy-hour in the late afternoon, Lino's Bar is everyone's favourite when the lifts close and the cocktails in the Hotel Edelweiss are ingenious.
A charming and comfortable chalet in a peaceful spot
We had a lovely time at Piccolo Sogno. The chalet was cosy and warm, well-equipped, and so quiet and peaceful. We particularly loved relaxing in front of the large wood-burning stove in the evening after a long day's skiing. Philip, the owner, provided us with detailed recommendations for the area and was very helpful. ”
