Sauze d'Oulx is on a sunny west facing plateau in Italy's Milky Way, one of the World's biggest ski circuits and host of the 2006 Winter Olympics. There is a great range of bars, restaurants, cafes and discos in Sauze d'Ouix including La Terrazze, which is adjacent to the Grand Hotel Besson, and is one of the best nightclubs in the Olympic Valley.
The Grand Hotel itself is a comfortable and welcoming property with 44 guestrooms, five of which are suites with hydromassge tubs. The hydromassage tubs in the suites are situated directly in front of the windows so you can enjoy the panoramic valley-views. Rooms are mainly finished in local wood and stone and nearly all of them have a balcony.

The hotel restaurant is available for breakfast and dinner and there is a bar and terrace for that all important apres-ski.
