We have now stayed at the Zerbion Hotel for three consecutive years, our fourth trip is coming up at the end of this week.
We go every year to Torgnon, Italy with our friends who are Italian/English and they introduced us to both Torgnon and the Zerbion Hotel and the lovely family who run it.
By far the best thing about this hotel is the food, we always stay on a full board basis for their delicious meals, best food ever had in Italy.
The rooms are spacious and very comfortable, especially for families as they have a small hall coming off the entrance then one double bedroom at one end, large bathroom with good shower in the centre and another room with a sofa bed made up for the children with plenty of storage in both rooms. The rooms have been renovated in the last couple of years and are eco friendly too, you can only turn the lights on with the key in the switch, so that when you leave the room the lights are always turned off.
Housekeeping is very good, every day they clean your room and replenish the toiletries etc. Cannot fault the staff and always ready with a smile and a hello or Ciao.
The family who run this hotel cannot do enough for you and it feels like you are part of their family, they are very welocming and because of this they have regular families returning each year, as we do.
There is a very welcoming snug bar and also a family room if you want to go an play cards or dominoes or watch TV. They also have a separate restaurant as well as the full board side of the restaurant for hotel guests.
I believe we (our family and our friends) are the only British to stay in this hotel or indeed Torgnon, as the owner "Livio" is very proud of telling his local town people that he has English staying with him again, or he informs the local ski school and ski hire shop that the English are coming again.
Skiing in Torgnon is good too, with several challenging Red Runs, one black run and a few blue runs for beginners. There are not loads of ski runs, but enough to keep you occupied if you are a beginner or intermediate. For beginners there is a moving floor to take you back up the slope and for everyone else there are chair lifts and drag lifts to take you to the higher slopes.
You take the gondola up from town to the ski area and usually the snow conditions are good, but they have seeral snow cannons if not. When there has been sufficient snow, you can ski right down to the bottom of the gondola.
There are several very nice restaurants in and around the ski are and all the people we meet are very friendly, even though we cannot speak a word of Italian.
The ski school only as two English speaking ski instructors and one english speaking snow board instructor, so you have to book them early to ensure an instructor you can understand. But the fact that this resort it totally Italian is a plus in our eyes. It is still small and intimate and not yet overrun with drunken British holiday-makers.
It is great here for children also as the ski area has a lovely play area for little ones and older ones alike, with a bouncy castle, bouncy slide and trampolines, plus there is the Doughnut Ring slide.
Great holiday every year is had by all and we always look forward to our half term February break in Torgnon.
