At the northern end of the 400km Milky Way ski area in Italy, perched on a sunny plateau, sits the vibrant mountain town of Sauze d'Oulx. It's a magnet for those looking to make the most of their time both on and off the mountain. Intermediate and advanced skiers and boarders love it in particular thanks to the 212 runs.

During the day, the resort is like any other - quaint with a slightly eternal Christmassy feel. It's at night when the resort really comes alive. There's a huge number of bars and restaurants suiting all tastes, with everything from lively apertivo bars with live music to cosy Italian mountain bars - where you'll bump into the true locals.

'Sunny Sauze', as it’s come to be known, is particularly popular amongst the Brits, as it's just as big on great value nightlife as it is on skiing. It’s a buzzing town that’s made even better by the legendary skiing and boarding on offer. Come for the mountain, and stay for the nightlife!

Other activities include a sports centre and gorgeous winter walks through the surrounding pine forests.
