Welcome to our selection of holiday homes to rent in Pila, Italy.
Situated in the Italian region of Valle d'Aosta, tucked into the north-west corner of the country, the Alpine skiing resort of Pila is one of the smaller destinations in the region, yet it still boasts much charm. As well as excellent skiing facilities, the whole of Valle d'Aosta is famous for its stunning natural scenery and the area around Pila is no exception.
In summer those same ski slopes are busy with hikers and cyclists and mountain bike trails in particular are a popular activity, along with horse riding excursions for those who prefer to take things at a slower pace. Many of the cable cars and ski lifts stay open all year, allowing summer visitors to enjoy the same views as those who are there through the winter months.
Summer in Pila is a haven for those who enjoy outdoor activities; mountain bikes are available to hire, equestrian centres organise day trips into the foothills of the mountains and local guides are available for hikes into some of the more spectacular and difficult areas of the Valle d'Aosta.
A new adventure park has recently opened, aimed at keeping children and teenagers entertained with its treetop rope bridges and zip wires, but many adults will enjoy testing their bravery too. The beautiful Chamole Lake is not just another great destination for hikers, but is the perfect place to rest up for a few hours and perhaps even take a dip surrounded by towering Alpine peaks.
Most visitors to Pila and the Valle d'Aosta region as a whole tend to arrive in the winter months, when the slopes are covered with snow and a whole range of winter sports activities are available. The skiing season runs from around November to April, weather permitting, with runs suitable for all experience and abilities.
If you don't ski or just fancy more unusual winter activities you could take a dog-powered sled ride through the beautiful Valle d'Aosta, try your hand at more extreme sports like bobsled or keep warm by heading for one of the traditional mountain huts, which have now been converted into restaurants serving local specialities by a roaring fire. The apres-ski scene is fairly quiet in this small town, but there are plenty of restaurants and bars if you decide to have a night out. Visitors here take their skiing seriously; hardly surprising, considering you have more than 24 runs to choose from, as well as off-piste areas and runs with specialist jumps for snowboarders.
