Set within the beautiful pine forests at the bottom of the Alps, this large three-star hotel is perfectly located for both scenic retreat and active adventure. Situated just outside the lovely mountain town of Aosta, it enjoys close proximity to the national park, ski resorts of Mont Blanc and the main motorways that run through mainland Europe. The Hotel Saint Nicolas has been built and decorated in the Alpine tradition, with an emphasis on comfort. The double and triple rooms come equipped with TV, telephone, mini bar, air conditioning and bathroom - all with views of the scenic countryside. There is a garden and play area for active children and a bar for less active grown ups. The restaurant serves fantastic local and regional food and wine, all of which can be enjoyed against the backdrop of the snow-topped mountains. With helpful concierge staff providing airport transfers, ski passes, car and equipment hire and local maps, this cosy, considerate and fantastically located hotel is a real gem.
