Hotel Savoia Debili is a lovely little hotel set in the middle of Sauze with a chilled out, friendly atmosphere and some great facilities. It's close to the resort centre and lifts and is perfect for groups of friends and family who are looking for a convenient place to call home during their holiday.
You'll find it just 100 metres from the Clotes chairlift and about 50 metres from the resort centre, so no worries about convenience. When you're hanging out in the hotel, head to the bar for a drink and get a round in on the pool table or play some table tennis.
There's also an open plan lounge with a TV where you can relax and have a chat. If you'd like to soak your tired muscles, there's a sauna, steam room and hot tub available for about €20 per day. The Wi-Fi also has a charge, but the fitness room is free, if you'd like to get in a little extra exercise while you're there.

About the resort
Sauze d'Oulx sits at the northern end of the huge Milky Way ski area, perched on a sunny plateau. 'Sunny Sauze' (as it's come to be known) is particularly popular with the Brits and it's not a huge surprise as the resort is big on skiing but equally big on nightlife. It's a party town that's made even better due to the legendary skiing and boarding on offer.
As the gateway to some 400km of piste, it's a magnet for skiers and boarders who also like a bit of party action as well as their time on the mountains. It's a fantastic place for intermediate and advanced skiers and boarders thanks to endless cruisy blue runs and nearly 200kms of challenging reds.
At night the resort really comes to life. There's a huge amount of clubs, restaurants and bars offering a little bit of everything - live music, DJ sets, dancing, all available late into the night! Come for the mountains and stay for the nightlife.
