Traditionally an Italian farmhouse built in the 17th century, Baita 1697 has been tastefully renovated into a gorgeous luxury ski property and is within walking distance of the main cable car which connects Pragelato to the Milky Way ski area at Sestriere.

Luxury catered chalets in Italy are like gold dust and this stylish chalet in the Piedmontese Alps is a rare and beautiful thing.

Ben Nelson

Baita 1697 is situated in the heart of an old hamlet at an altitude of 1600m, convenient to all the facilities of Sestriere.

You can take the cable car (100m from the lodge) to the heart of the 400km of pisted slopes that cover Cesana, Claviere, Sansicario, Sauze d’Oulx and Sestriere (plus Montgenevre on the French side of the border); collectively known as The Milky Way or the Via Lattea. Here the slopes, which accommodate all levels of skiing, rise as high as 3280m and include two Olympic downhill runs.

Baita 1697 is a 17th century Piedmontese farmhouse lovingly restored by an acclaimed interior designer to such great success that it was featured in Architectural Digest Magazine. It sleeps 12 adults and 6 kids in 5 master en-suites, a media room with a sofa fold out double bed and a kids’ dorm which sleeps 6. The bedrooms are fully furnished to luxurious standard and feature custom made Egyptian cotton bed sheets. The bathrooms have underfloor heating, top of the range fittings and salon standard hair dryers.

Other features of the property include the International film/music library, audio Bluetooth connections throughout, an extremely spacious communal living space with wood-burning open fire, media room with wood-burning open fire (convertible to double bedroom) and a mountain-view roof terrace with 8-person wooden hot tub.

All of this is within 3 minutes walk to the cable car and return ski access to allow you to ski back to the front door.
