The Grand Hotel Principe is situated in a beautiful location, right in front of the ski slopes and the ski lift. This historic structure first opened its doors in 1903 close to the old town, in front of the first sledge lift. It is located in a stone building, surrounded by a pines and larches park which also accommodates a swimming pool and the dehors of the Bar-Restaurant, that preserved its grandiose and majestic charm throughout the decades. The culinary offer will satisfy tourists looking for international dishes, as much as lovers of the Piedmontese culinary tradition. The starters include a classic platter of local cured meats and quiche with Raschera fondue; among the first courses, a special mention goes to the Valgranotti with Castelmagno cheese, tagliolini with Alba-truffle sauce, as well as to the traditional mountain soups, such as the exquisite “ULA”, made with beans, leeks and pork ribs slow-cooked for hours in the traditional terracotta pot. The recommended second course is game meat (deer, venison, and wild boar), either with herbs or stewed with Barolo and Barbaresco wines. And finally, the desserts: pies with berries jam, but also the traditional Bunet, a must. The wine cellar hosts local labels, important red wines such as Barolo and Barbaresco, but also wines from other Italian regions that are particularly appreciated, and requested, by international clients.
