Pragelato, Italy

The Village
Pragelato thrives on its medieval heritage and is full of true Italian character, whilst offering the utmost in modern conveniences and facilities.  The village was the backdrop for the 2006 Winter Olympic Games – the ski-jump and cross country skiing events both took place in Pragelato.

Pragelato Village Resort & Spa has been stunningly designed to form an elegant Alpine village within Pragelato, with direct cable car access to Sestriere and over 400kms of piste which make up the Milky Way 4 valleys ski area. 

The Shopping
There are basic shops in the villages that make up Pragelato but for convenience Pragelato Village Resort's own pizzeria/rotisserie 'Le Delizie', offers home made fresh pasta and ready to cook sauces, traditional lasagna, fresh vegetable preparations, warm or cold antipasti, a selection of cheeses and local dried meats. The shop also stocks some luxury local and Italian products such as jams, olive oil, wines, etc. For clients staying in the Residence, groceries may be ordered from the Resort's shopping list.

Also within Pragelato Village Resort there is a boutique featuring well known designer brands such as Diesel, Prada and Gucci, an interior design shop selling some of the lovely objects d’art present in the resort and a sports boutique. 

There is a ski equipment shop next to the resort, with the latest equipment including skis, boots, snowboards and ski wear, as well as the latest generation cross-country skiing equipment.

The nearest supermarket is in the next village approx. 3km away but for more choice head for Sestriere town centre where there is a great range of shops.

Again there are a few restaurants and pizzerias in the villages that make up Pragelato but the Resort itself has 3 from which to choose as well as the new pizzeria at Le Delizie:

La Tuccia is the main hotel restaurant for guests on half board and accommodates up to 180 diners with breakfast and dinner served buffet style, whilst an a la carte menu is available at lunchtime.  Breakfast consists of a large choice of foods ranging from freshly baked mountain breads to cascades of seasonal fruits, traditional jams and local honey, cereals or warm omelets cooked to order. Dinner is an Italian buffet based on regional produce and specialties.

La Taverna is a smaller a la carte restaurant open in the evening (reservation required) serving traditional Alpine cuisine including favourites such as Raclette and Fondue Bourguignon. Seated on benches around long rustic tables you can soak up the rustic atmosphere whilst enjoying your evening with fellow guests. The restaurant has an open cellar which is well stocked with wines from the Barolo and Piedmont regions of Italy and during the day you can indulge in a wine tasting course. Guests staying on half board are welcome to eat here however some special dishes do incur a supplement.

Pan Beni is the Resort's fine dining restaurant serving gourmet Italian food. Modern in style, the restaurant has a warm and cosy atmosphere enhanced by the fireplace and the intimacy of the setting. There is a comprehensive wine list to complement the delicious regional specialties which are offered including Gianduia chocolates and Piedmont white truffles.  Pan Beni is open for breakfast and dinner during high season but dinner only in mid and low seasons. This restaurant is not included on the half board tariff however half board guests will receive a credit allowance when dining at Pan Beni Booking essential.

Cafés & Bars
Pragelato Village Resort has a few bars to choose from depending on the time of day:

Il Ritrovo is the main bar of the Resort, set on two levels, each one with it own fire place, next to which you can sip a glass of red wine and roast your own chestnuts.  The bar is open from morning to night serving a selection of coffees and hot drinks throughout the day, accompanied by light snacks, cakes and biscuits.  In the evenings Il Ritrovo is a great place for an aperitif in comfortable sofas, or after dinner drinks with live music and dancing until 1.00am

Café Albergian serves coffees and sweet pastries by day, upbeat lounge music and drinks by night. The ground floor of the bar opens onto the resort piazza whilst upstairs there is a warm and inviting lounge area with cosy sofas and low tables set around an inviting fireplace.
