Milky Way - Monti della Luna, Italy
About Hotel Solaris
The three-star Hotel Solaris is situated in a tranquil setting within walking distance of the charming, pedestrianised Alpine village of Cesana Torinese, with its traditional shops and Italian cafés. Cesana’s central location in the middle of the Milky Way means that the amenities of other resorts such as Claviere and Sestriere are easily accessible for coach groups.
The hotel is conveniently located 200m from the gondola up to Sansicario with the ski school meeting point lying a short walk away from the lift. Groups tend to start the week in Claviere due to its excellent facilities for beginners. This is a short 15 minute coach ride away from Hotel Solaris. By the end of the week, students will discover the more advanced ski area of Cesana; a 200m walk away from the lifts up to this area.
The Solaris has 58 rooms spread over three floors giving a total capacity of 160 beds.
Guests sleep in 2-5 bedded rooms. All rooms are en suite and have balconies, a hairdryer, telephone, TV and a safe.
The hotel has a modern layout with a spacious restaurant, comfortable lounge/bar and areas which are suitable for groups to use for in-house evening entertainment.
All meals are served Italian buffet-style. A packed lunch will be provided for those skiing in Claviere. As students progress to Cesana and the rest of the Monti della Luna area, a hot lunch can be arranged back at the hotel.
You may be charged a damage deposit on arrival.
