L'Ancien Paquier
Ranked #2 of 22 Valtournenche B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 January 2014

Our stay at L'Ancien Paquier was absolutely amazing. The hotel is looked after with love and care. High quality in everything and tasteful decoration. Really enjoyed every moment staying there, like at home really. We have been in small and cosy hotels before, but this one is the best so far. The free parking in the garage nearby was provided. The staff is really nice and helpful. Location is also quite nice, plenty of restaurants around. The slope lifts are in just 800 meters and free parking available there as well. Regarding skiing, the infrastructure is very good, new lifts everywhere, good for novices, as there are many blue runs and few different short slopes in the learning area.

Few words about the ground floor cafe - this is the great place to have a coffee or herbal tee after the day of skiing, good choice of biscuits and deserts. The breakfast is very nice too.

Spent 3 nights at L'Ancien Paquier, and our stay exceeded expectations. The B&B is a great value all around, but the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff made the experience truly exceptional. L'Ancien Paquier also has an agreement with the restaurant in the Al Caminetto B&B across the street to allow its guests to dine there in the evenings (I believe only during the non-ski season). Al Caminetto serves a fantastic 5-course meal for about 15 EUR per person, and we dined there on two of the three evenings. Would highly recommend the B&B and hope to stay there again.

Just got back from a one week stay at L'Ancien Paquier, I had only read good reviews so was expecting it to be great. I can only say that my expectations were totally exceeded, as were our friends who stayed too. Really nice rooms, balcony views over the mountains, impeccably cleaned, bus over the road takes you to the ski lifts, or its a 3 minute drive if you prefer to drive, free underground secure parking, lots of seating in the cafe, roaring fire, very good breakfast, staff always asking if you would like an additional coffee (no charge), just about every product (chocolate, biscuits, amazing ice cream, cakes) is made on site by Fabio. And what a host..! He is up to open at 6.00 am, makes all the food, yet always has time to talk to you, book your evening restaurant or give a useful piece of advice. All the staff are so friendly, it really is hard to fault the L'Ancien Paquier. Will definitely be back.

We have stayed 5 nights in this B&B and this was one of the best experience we had in Italy.
Excellent location (ski bus stops across the street), cozy and clean rooms and an excellent breakfast are some of the things that made our stay there very pleasant. But more than this, the friendly and helpful host, Fabio, who offered us all mornings’ information about the slopes or advices for places to visit nearby. I believe this makes the difference between a good cold hotel and a warm B&B where you have more than “accommodation”.

Cozy B&B. Free indoor parking. Located close to ski rental and restaurants. Fabio is always friendly and accommodating. He was waiting for us when we were arriving late past midnight. Also an excellent chocolatier.

We have just spent 6 days at L'Ancien Paquier Valtournenche to visit the area.
We were cordially greeted by Fabio and his assistant , as he helped with our luggage and showed us our rooms and the underground carpark near the hotel . When we settled our things in the room ,he offered us some tea he was a mine of information about the Valtournenche and Valle d'Aosta area.
Our rooms were always clean and had all the necessary things we needed and breakfast was great too.
We appreciated their friendliness and all the information he gave us .It's a place you would want to come back to again and again.
For those who do not find a room at L'ancien Paquier they can stop for tea, coffe and good cakes that Fabio makes himself.
We recommend to al you will not be disappointed besides the locality and area are so beautiful to explore.
