Visitor Reviews of Madesimo

paul barry from Ireland writes:

Madesimo is a small village high in the mountains with a truly picturesque setting. Friendly small local bars and good choice of restaurants serving authentic Italian food. You don't have to walk very far in the village to access the ski lifts as there are three. The hotels are a little dated but are a good standard for most skiers or snowboarders. We, as a group, are going to Madesimo at the end of Jan 2017 and staying at the K2. This hotel is great for food and very reasonable.
