Budget-friendly Bormio is arguably Italy‘s most underrated ski resort – book your next winter escape here for snow-sure slopes and traditional thermal spas. As for accommodation, think snug suites, wood cabins and recently renovated rooms.

Close to the Swiss border, Bormio attracts a regular clientele with its uncrowded pistes and wooded slopes. It’s been a spa town since the days of the Roman Empire, and healing thermal springs are dotted all over the Alta Valtellina, aptly known as the Valley of Water. Off the slopes, don’t miss the 17th-century Old Town, with its narrow cobbled streets and Romanesque-style churches, as well as ample opportunities for local cheese and wine tasting.

The restaurant stocks local wines and harnesses regional ingredients to whip up its Mediterranean-flavoured five-course menu.

Surrender tola dolce vita at the Sottovento’s own pâtisserie café, a sweet-toothed heaven, bejewelled with mouth-watering macarons and pretty pastries. Breakfast is a similar scene, with cakes and croissants, cold cuts and canapés, while a further temptation is the hotel spa. A Finnish pinewood sauna and aromatherapy steam room, as well as piping hot and icy cold showers, are among the highlights. Meanwhile, mountainside suites come with rustic wood touches, kitchenettes and balconies, along with natural alpine-herb bath products.
