We booked Edelweiss as a low cost half board option and apart from the room, which was small but with a great view and balcony, everything was excellent and much better than can reasonably be expected for the price. All the good points mentioned by other reviewers are spot on, it is an easy ski out, slightly awkward ski in or a 3-5 minute walk to the lift taking you to the centre of the Sportina area so a great place to stay for active skiers. The bar and restaurant area is very welcoming with a roaring fire and comfortable settees. It was very easy to meet and socialise with the other guests. It is a family run hotel and everybody went out of their way to make the stay enjoyable. The food was typical Italian mountain food, a lot of ham, cheese and pasta with some good meat dishes on some nights. Bruno's wife runs the kitchen and they have taken on board the request for more fruit and vegetables but not quite in the way we expect with mountainous fruit and salad bowls appearing for one night each.
The room had all the essentials and never ran out of hot water, though we had the lower grade room it was more than adequate .
Sauze is walkable especially back down the hill but Bruno will take you into town from 5.30pm. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to all but the most dedicated party goers or gastronomes, for an excellent value stay.
