The Hotellerie de Mascognaz is perfect for those who love the thought of being alone with just a few good friends and the moon and stars!
Nestled high in the mountains above the village of Champoluc, the ancient 5* hamlet of Mascognaz is the ultimate hideaway with access from the main village of Champoluc and the main gondola by skidoo, Landrover or small piste machine (Gatto delle Neve) during the winter months.
Once through the front door, you’ll be blown away by the traditional fabrics and woodwork blended sumptuously with modern bathrooms and grand furniture.
The spa and wellness area has a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, Turkish bath and sauna with the option of a number of treatments including massages, beauty and hydro mud therapy where you can rest and relax after a long day on the slopes.
There are two dining rooms in the hamlet, Lo Miete and Lo Pejo where you can enjoy traditional cuisine and wines in beautiful surroundings. Lo Pejo is normally used as the restaurant for external diners coming up to Mascognaz to enjoy an evening meal, whilst dinner for residents of all the chalets is taken in the restaurant of Lo Meite.
Guests of the chalets Rascard, Lo Miete, Stadel and the Monterosa Suite all take breakfast in the restaurant in Chalet Lo Miete. Guests of chalets Etre, Caleutch and Walser take breakfast in a smaller dining room adjacent to Chalet Caleutch.
Guests of all chalets normally dine in the restaurant in Chalet Lo Miete (although occasionally in Restaurant Lo Pejo).
“THE place to stay in the Aosta Valley. A truly magical place! Mascognaz is a unique village nestled near Champoluc. From the transfer to the village with the skidoo to the meals and accommodations, everything is an experience. A relaxing place from where you can enjoy activities such as skiing, walking, or simply rest within incredibly beautiful surroundings. Certainly a hotel to recommend to single travelers, couples and families. The staff is of quality and management will go the extra like to please you. Enjoy the experience!!”Quote from a previous guest

Hotel Location / Resort Map
- 8 mins by ski-doo or Landrover (between the hamlet and the main road running through the valley) and then 5 mins by minibus or Landrover. Early and late season, the Landrover is able to make the full journey between the ski deposit and the chalets. The on-demand evening service between the hamlet and the village finises at 2230 hours. Please note that this hotel is not ski-in / ski-out, but that indeed is part of its charm. Please bear in mind that very occasionally (just a handful of times in the 15 years or more we have featured this property), access to and from the property is deemed to be impossible because of too much snow. On these occasions, the local authorities permit the use of vehicles up and down the access road and the only way in and out of the property is by helicopter or one foot)
