On the slopes of Mont Blanc, Le Massif Courmayeur is the latest modish hotel in Italy's Aosta valley. Each room combines the sleek tones typical of an alpine chalet - think snow whites, dove greys and natural wood on the walls - with a Brunello Cucinelli aesthetic. Cashmere blankets draped haphazardly over the beds, plush pillows and massive mirrors make for a seductively cosy stay. Alternatively, the hotel also owns a chalet on the slopes, La Loge du Massif, so you can stop for a midday break by the fire or some après-ski aperitivo. You can forget heavy rösti while you're here - La Loge's restaurants offer mountain fare with an Italian twist, so substitute schnitzel and hot chocolate for caprese and Aperol.
