Alpine Summer

Sauze d'Oulx

With our fresh, clean, dry mountain air, at a perfect temperature of 20° – 30°C, in a sunny amphitheatre known as the “balcony to the Alps”, Sauze has plenty on offer to delight families and couples in July and August.

Take a walk in the Gran Bosco National Park or on the mountain hiking trails, passing through conifer forests to discover idealic alpine lakes. Sample Piemontese specialities and local wine in rustic lodges, followed by evening concerts and weekend antiques markets in the village. Relax at one of the spas or at the newly re-opened cinema.
