These spacious apartments are split across two buildings (La Gualt & Fausto's) roughly 500m apart and are only 150m to Lift 10, 700m to the Carosello gondola and 1km from the ski hire shop. The ski bus stops outside to help you get about.
There aren't any swimming pools or games rooms, but what it may lack in facilities, it makes up for in space and comfort. The living rooms are a great size and perfect for kicking back before heading out to enjoy Livigno.
The apartments were built by a chap called Fausto who owns the nearby Il Cenacolo restaurant (located beneath Hotel Galli). Anyone staying at La Gualt will be guaranteed a warm welcome and discount too!

About the resort
Livigno is a charming, traditional alpine village with a friendly and cosmopolitan vibe right on the Swiss border. It's a vibrant place that's still a bit of a secret to many. It's a resort that has something to please everyone, so you'd better plan your visit before the secret gets out!
The resort itself sits on the valley floor with the ski runs on either side of the town. Even though the 115km runs doesn't sound like much, there's tons to do here. It's more like North America in that you can pretty much ski or snowboard anywhere.
Beginners will be kept happy thanks to the excellent English speaking ski schools while intermediates will relish the large number of blue and red runs. On top of that, the pedestrian centre consists of three kilometres of bars, restaurants and duty-free shops for when you're not carving up the slopes.
The lively après-ski scene suits many tastes. You'll find traditional Italian restaurants serving inexpensive local cuisine, fantastic pizzerias and rockin' bars and pubs for something a bit more exciting. Try Marcos and Daphne's pub for a pint of Guinness, or dance the night away in the resort nightclubs. And of course there's the duty-free shopping - you'll definitely want to leave room in your suitcase on the way out!
