"After some extensive on-line searching, I selected Hotel Millefiori for a Christmas ski trip for my family of five. It turned out to be a great decision! We arranged for the hotel to take us to and from MXP, as well as to most places we needed to go, as we did not rent a car. The staff is very friendly, speaks several languages, including good English, and works very hard to assure the guests have a great experience. The hotel is very clean, comfortable, and well appointed. There is a large common area with a well stocked honor bar and snacks. The guests all mingle and we met people from many countries here, and at the meals. Their breakfast buffet is extensive and includes several egg preparations, meats, breads, pancakes, bakery items, fresh orange juice and many other items! The hotel provided, free of charge, a guide on three days we skied. First was Jovani (apologies for likely misspelling) who knows the mountain well and was able to get us around efficiently and provided good pointers as well as described the area and pointed out many things we would have missed. My three lids (17, 21 and 24) are good skiers and really enjoyed skiing with him! He is a coach for Swedish youth national team, so obviously highly qualified. We met all the guides at some point and they are a great group of people that have a hearty sense of humor, and know the area well! On the third day, Micke, the owner, provided a guide, Kim, to take my two boys off-piste. They had the time of their lives....deep powder, steep and challenging terrain. They provided all the necessary ABS equipment needed for this. We had our own ski equipment, except for the ABS, but they have a large shop and can accommodate any needs for rentals right on-site and from what I saw their equipment is very nice. We had Christmas dinner here, as well as dinner another night. Both were delicious and everyone in my family enjoyed both. Micke and the staff prepares each meal and everyone eats the same thing, with a seating at 7:30 pm. One night was a huge burger dish, and on Christmas he served a delicious beef schnitzel. I’m sure they would accommodate any dietary concerns if you speak with them in advance. In short, we had a memorable stay and I definitely recommend the hotel! If you are considering a ski holiday, or summer hiking holiday, reach out to Micke."
"We stayed at Hotel Millefiori from Boxing Day to the 31st December 2019 and had a wonderful stay. The hotel has a warm welcoming feel and is run by a lovely bunch of staff from Sweden and Italy who all chip in and help out doing everything from picking up at the airport, cooking and leading the ski tours. This can lead to a slightly chaotic feel in the mornings but I didn’t mind this - it feels like staying at a friends house rather than an impersonal hotel which I liked and underneath it all it is organised and everyone gets to the slopes on time. The rooms are cosy, warm and decorated simply in a Scandinavian style, the beds were comfortable - there are no TV’s which adds to the rustic feel of the hotel but the WiFi is strong for anyone wanting to keep feeling connected. The breakfast is fantastic- we all love our food and everything is fresh and homemade- from pastries to cooked breakfast all tastes are catered for. There is an honesty bar in the lounge area as well as books and board games to be taken advantage of. Every afternoon after a day on the slopes there would be some amazing baked creation to eat. My boyfriend said the cakes were the best he has eaten ever. I hadn’t been skiing in 10 years and was nervous about getting onto the slopes again- the hotel has its own ski room where we were kitted out and their own instructors for lessons or daily guided tours. We had a fantastic guide ‘Johan’ who was extremely knowledgable about the area and was very good with my two teenage children and gave me the confidence to get back on the slopes. After a day of being guided around I felt confident enough to go off on my own for the rest of the time we were there which was fantastic. My only disappoint is that we couldn’t have stayed longer as we had a magical trip"
"Our stay at Millefiori Hotel was the best !!! All the staff working there were very kind. We love all meals, especially the dinners. The owner knows how to conduct business because he participates in everything from skiing with guests to cooking. We meet people from everywhere. Every afternoon, after skiing, people would stay in the living room to meet and exchange experiences of the day and life. Michael taught my daughter how to ski, he was very kind. Thank you all for our pleasant and perfect stay ... we will be back !!!"
