With magnificent views down the Susa Valley, the Grand Hotel Besson has a great location towards the edge of the village. The Clotes chairlift is the closest ski lift, a 600 metre walk away and you can hire a locker and leave your ski equipment at the base of the lift if you don't fancy carrying it.

The new management has spruced up the entire place and it's looking good. The hotel has a spa area with an indoor pool with jet waterfalls, a Finnish sauna, steam room, salt scrub room, saltwater pool, outdoor pool relaxation room, herbal tea corner and gym. The lounge area is a great place to relax next to the large fire in comfy sofas and great views, the fact that there's a bar as well is a bonus.

Fantastic location, staff and food Edinburgh, United Kingdom Just back from a 1 week stay at hotel besson. Firstly, location was fantastic. It is close enough to centre of town so that bars and restaurants are under a 5 minute walk away. But it is far enough... Rated 5 on TripAdvisor

View on map

Towards the edge of the village but still only a six minute walk to the centre, the Grand Hotel Besson looks down the Susa Valley with some fantastic views. The nearest ski lift is the Clotes chairlift which is 600 metres down the road, an eleven minute walk but you can rent a ski locker at the lift base so there's no need to walk in the dreaded ski boots.
