Chalet La Petitta

Catered chalet La Petitta is located in Jouvenceaux, just outside ski resort Sauze d’Oulx in the Via Lattea area. Skiing in Italy stands for long prepared slopes, nice Italian cappuccino and lunches in one the many mountain restaurants and a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. La dolce (ski) vita!

Chalet La Petitta is located in the center of the small town Jouvenceaux (1200 m), 1500 m from lively Sauze d’Oulx. There are two bars / restaurants close to the chalet to have a drink after skiing. Sauze d’Oulx is famous for its apresski, you can take a free bus (untill 6pm) or taxi. Jouvenceaux is an authentic town with renovated houses and small streets. In the middle of all this is Chalet La Pettita located, right at a little square with a fountain. The ski lift is only 150 meter away from the chalet, no waiting in line. The slope that brings you back to Jouvenceaux is maintained with snow machines and should be no problem for intermediate skiers. Beginners can take the skilift back to the chalet.

Chalet La Petitta is unique due to its on-site restaurant (the cave). On one side there is a comfortable lounge, on the other side the dining area. There are enough dining tables and for bigger groups we can put the tabels together. The ambiance is rustic and authentic (13th 14th century). The chalet staff will serve breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner here.

Ski area Via Lattea

Via Lattea is located on the border between Italy and France. 400 kilometers of slopes and 91 ski lifts make this a great location for your next winter holiday. Most slopes are located in Italy, Sestriere being the most central skistation of this part. A smaller part is located in France, with Montgenevre in the middle. The Sestriere skiresort hosted part of the Turin Olympics in 2006. There are still a few Olympic slopes in this ski resort. There are wide slopes, centrally located, and well prepared. We can actually say this about the entire ski resort.

Snow conditions

Snow conditions are usually good because of the good meteorological location. Either great conditions in the French part or the Italian part.. maybe even in both. There are 78 lifts that range from an altitude of 1,350 meter to 2,850 meter at Mount Frèteve.


The slopes are wide and well prepared. The ski resort is suitable for advanced skiers, but there are also enough options for beginners. After one or two days of practice there are many ways to go. Also off piste lovers will enjoy Sauze d’Oulx. We do advise you to go out with a local guide. If you need help finding a good guide, please let us know.

Skiing in Italy = good food

La vita di ski Italia è bella. Life in Italy is good. Skiing in Italy is fantastic, but the Italian gastronomy makes it even better. The food is superb but still affordable. An espresso in a mountain restaurant for €1,- and pizza for about €8,-. And nothing beats the taste of pizza in Italy. Enjoy the good life!

Buckley family February 2017

We were a large group of 5 families with 10 adults and 15 children ages 7-18. We had a fantastic time at Chalet Petitta. We have stayed here once before but this time was even better. The chalet is well laid out with separate areas which could allow for some family privacy. The communal bar area is a great space. Only issue was the wifi needed more bandwidth but that might be 15 youngsters all trying to use it at once!!

Heather and Richard the hosts were fantastic. They coped with the children brilliantly and sorted two sittings for dinner. Excellent food every night, great advice when needed on skiing and other issues. They also helped us coordinate our lessons with the ski school.

Remember always end your day at the La Fontaine bar, bottom of the run with a beer or an Aperol Spritz!

Whitters family December 2016

We were 20 family members spending 2 weeks at Chalet la Petitta over Christmas and NYE. We were the first guests of the season. We took the whole chalet, and it was perfect for us, as each family/group of kids had their own room and bathroom. The bedroom/bathroom standard was absolutely fine for a mid-priced mountain accommodation, warm, comfortable, clean, with everything working (except the heater in one room the first night, which was fixed the following day). The communal dining/living room provided a warm, spacious and comfortable place to relax/eat/drink/play games together. The hosts, Heather and Richard, went above and beyond for us, there was nothing that was too much trouble for them. We found them flexible, always willing to please, great chefs, and impeccable hosts. We had some vegetarians amongst us who were really pleased with their options too. They should be commended for their work! Jouvencaux is beautiful, it’s traditional and pretty, especially in comparison to Sestriere and other purpose-built ski villages in the area. The walk to the chairlift takes 5 minutes in ski boots, is flat, and was a major convenience for us. To summarise, I can’t recommend the place enough. We would certainly not even look for another option if we were to have another family holiday again in the region, Chalet la Petitta is perfect.

Kas Berendsen, March 2016

We have greatly enjoyed our stay in chalet La Petita. The food was delicous and in general it was a very nice stay. We have been well informed and helped during our stay. The location was also perfect since it is only 100m to the lift and slope. Thank you Yorrick and Gigi.

Mark Weldon, March 2016
