Baita 1697

Milky Way, Italy  ·  Sleeps 12+6
What we love

It is so hard to find a luxury catered chalet in Italy and this property is a stunning example of chic design meets rustic farmhouse......and what makes it even better is you can ski back to your front door.

Alex Harvey


Baita 1697 is situated in the heart of an old hamlet at an altitude of 1600m, convenient to all the facilities of Sestriere. You can take the cable car (100m from the lodge) to the heart of the 400km of pisted slopes that cover Cesana, Claviere, Sansicario, Sauze d’Oulx and Sestriere (plus Montgenevre on the French side of the border); collectively known as The Milky Way, or the Via Lattea. Here the slopes, which accommodate all levels of skiing, rise as high as 3280m and include two Olympic downhill runs.

The lodge is a 17th century Piedmontese farmhouse lovingly restored by an acclaimed interior designer to such great success that it was also featured in a edition of Architectural Digest Magazine. It sleeps 12 adults and 6 kids in 5 master en-suites, a media room with a sofa fold out double bed and a kids’ dorm which sleeps 6. The bedrooms are fully furnished to luxurious standard and feature custom made Egyptian cotton bed sheets and bathrooms with underfloor heating, top of the range fittings and salon standard hair dryers.

Other features of the property are International film/music library, stations throughout, extremely spacious communal living space with wood-burning open fire, media room with wood-burning open fire (convertible to double bedroom) and a mountain-view roof terrace with 8-person wooden hot tub.

All of this is within 3 minutes walk to the cable car and return ski access to allow you to ski back to the front door.
