Located on a south facing hill about 20-30 minutes on foot from the center of Aosta this hotel enjoys a sunny postion overlooking Aosta and the surrounding mountains.
It is not the best choice if you don't have a car (like us), but once you get there it's definately worth it. I'd recommend travellers without car to take a cab from the railwaystation if you don't fancy walking uphills with the luggage (like we did - it was a rather hot walk..). Price might be a deterrent, but it is truly good value. The breakfast buffet is by far the best we've eaten during our 3 week tour through Italy and Switzerland - maybe ever. The atmosphere of the hotel is adoring - the house is a refurbished old farm, and the owners have really catered to details such as reuse of old wooden doors etc. An afternoon tea buffet is available at no extra cost, with homemade tirmausu, cakes and pastries to die for. The room rate also includes free access to the wellness area and the beautiful garden where there's a swimmingpool and a sundeck as well as an outdoor whirlpool with breathtaking mountain views. The wellness area, which is one of the best we've seen at this type of accmodation, houses a sauna, a steam bath and an indoor whirlpool as well as a breeze shower and a tropical shower. Everything is clean and fresh. The hotel has no restaurant and so you'll have to go/drive to Aosta in the evening - or head for Brasserie Busseyaz, just 300 meters away from the hotel - a place filled with locals and guests from the hotel. Excellent food and great ambience, not to be missed. The backdraw is that the rooms lack air condition - at least as far as we could find out during our one night stay (too short!). Very friendly owners / staff. Hotel Milleluci is a gem highly recommended for anyone who wishes to treat themselves to a wonderful holiday.
