Visitor Reviews of Santa Caterina Valfurva


Mike from United Kingdom writes:

We have been to numerous resorts, throughout Europe, over the past 40 years. Nowadays, we return for the umpteenth time to Santa Caterina. This small mountain village has developed into a top ski resort over the years. It is the ideal location for older people and families with young children. The ski school is exceptional. The runs, of which some are very long, are best suited to intermediate skiers, although there are some challenging black runs.
The village is small and has virtually no night-life which means it is quiet and safe for kids; there is little traffic. All the lifts are easily and quickly accessible from the hotels and the free ski bus provides door to door transport (no arduous walking carrying the kids' skis!)
Nearly all hotels are friendly and comfortable. Even the more economical (e.g. Park Hotel and Campagnoni) have good food and facilities.
The recently opened 'Sunny Valley', accessed by gondola, has a fine restaurant and spectacular views.
Snow is guaranteed. The village is at 1500+ metres and the slope are above that. Coupled with the north-facing slopes, one is assured of good snow conditions throughout the season.
It takes 4 hours (2.5 hours if you hire a car) from Linate or Malpensa, but an easy journey and well worth it.
