An area without comparisons
The Hotel Etoile des Neiges is located in a particularly favorable position, at the center of a vast area that offers hundreds of itineraries and mountain perspectives of all kinds in the summer.
As soon as you leave the Hotel Etoile des Neiges, without having to take the car, you have access to various itineraries and walks through the woods.
Coming out of the enchanting village of Jouvenceaux, the upper Susa Valley offers a varied and spectacular natural environment that, within a few kilometers, ranges from vast coniferous woods (es. the Natural Park of Gran Bosco di Salbrertrand, the Natural Park Orsiera Rocciavrè), to more rugged and wild areas with sheer slopes and “lunar” landscapes, passing through “enchanted” places (es. Valle Argentera, Val Troncea, Val Thuras, Valle Stretta, Val Clarea) with meadows, streams, alpine lakes and views of incomparable beauty with varied flora and fauna.
The upper Valle di Susa and its adjacent areas (Val Chisone, Monginevro, Moncenisio, Briançon) are also places rich in history, testimonies of the past and uniqueness.
To cite just a few examples: the Fort of Chaberton (the highest fortress in Europe), the Fort of Jafferau (the second highest fortress in Europe), the Fort of Fenestrelle (the most extensive fortress in the world after the Great Wall of China) and the countless military roads (the Somellier Road is the highest motorable road in Europe and the Assietta Road, among the most extensive) still practicable on foot, on mountain-bike, on motorbike and on 4×4 (read more…), while, to mention more recent works, the longest Tibetan bridge in the world, located in the Gorge of San Gervasio, between Cesana Torinese and Claviere.
In Valle di Susa and in Sauze d’Oulx, there are many other hotels: why choose the Hotel Etoile des Neiges to enjoy all this?
Because the Hotel Etoile des Neiges in the past was a ruined chalet and, after the recent and refined renovation, thanks to the use of natural materials, is among the few to offer a typically mountain atmosphere and it maintains a natural continuity with the wonderful environment of the surrounds, to offer its guests the “full-immersion” mountain, without having to give up all the modern comforts.
