Hotel Le Campagnol

Our opinion: A great value hotel in a quiet location. Recently featured in the acclaimed Conde Nast Traveller magazine in an article by respected journalist Peter Hardy.

A more recent addition to our programme, Le Campagnol is managed by a young, friendly couple – Franco and Daniela – who are pleased to welcome Ski 2 guests. Franco, who is the chef in the partnership, had worked at the 5* Hotel Breithorn previously, so the food has proven to be excellent.

View prices for Hotel Le Campagnol and compare them to some of our other hotels.

Featured in the October 2009 edition of the acclaimed Conde Nast Traveller magazine, as a “great value hotel”.

The hotel is in a quiet position, almost opposite the Hotel California and is therefore about a 10/12 minute walk to our ski deposit (where all ski equipment is issues and stored overnight) and the bottom of the main ski lift. One can either walk alongside the road or cross the road and walk along the (lit) cross-country ski track which runs through the woods to the end of the main street.

Rated as a 2 star property, the hotel is warm and clean and all bedrooms have en-suite or private bathrooms (with baths and shower attachments over). There is a selection of bedrooms including triple bedded and interconnecting-family rooms.

There is a small pleasant bar in the hotel, or a choice of other bars within 2 minute’s walk at the Hotel California, Le Rocher or Petit Tournalin.

A great value hotel for those who aren’t looking for luxury accommodation, but want an authentic Italian holiday.

Client Comments


We had a fab time in Champoluc, staying at the Hotel Le Campagnol. It was very special indeed – we spent Christmas eve with Daniela, Franco (the hotel owners) and their families from Le Campagnol. The food was beautiful, definitely 3 to 4 star.

– Mrs DS – December 2008

We enjoyed Champoluc and were particularly impressed with the Hotel Le Campagnol – the food was excellent and the staff very friendly and welcoming.

– Mr B – March 2008

Lovely, large, clean room …. helpful staff …. very good quality for a 2* hotel.

– Mr C – March 2008

Well described (in the Ski 2 brochure) … very good bedroom … excellent service from hotel staff … excellent dinners.

– Mr B – March 2008

Service from the staff was very good. They were very attentive. Good buffet breakfasts.

– Mr and Mrs S, January 2010

A very clean and comfortable hotel.

– Mr R, January 2010

We enjoyed staying at this hotel. The food was outstanding.

– Mr and Mrs G, January 2010

Franco is an excellent chef. Dinner was the highlight of the holiday. Well balanced breakfast with good range of options.

– Mr and Mrs S, March 2010

Far above expectations for a 2** hotel. We enjoyed wonderful service, clean rooms and great food and would stay there next time for sure. The walk (to and from the lift) was easy thanks to the ski locker systems.

– Mr S, January

    I have been to five different hotels with Ski2 in Champoluc and all have their individual characteristics.

    However Hotel Le Campagnol takes some beating for such an underestimated low level two star hotel.

    Daniele is a modest, relaxed, welcoming host, who speaks English and her husband Franco produced some special extraordinary cuisine far beyond the two star rating. He doesn’t speak English but I was able to compliment his cooking skills in a Google Italian translation, which brought a smile to his face. The two girl assistants spoke English and were very attentive and friendly. Second servings were always offered for the skier with a big appetite.
    Traditional continental breakfast with cereals, ham and cheese and scrambled egg. My room was on the top floor, which was clean and comfortable, offering a beautiful view down the mountainous valley but couldn’t get a wi-fi signal, only in the body of the hotel.

    The comments book in the hotel reflected how well the previous guests felt about the hotel with glowing passages. One such comment said “We really feel like home and your service and food is outstanding.”
    I always walked to Champoluc and treated this as my loosening up before the days skiing. You can walk on the road or go the more scenic route through a snow covered wooded area. No need to carry the skis as there is a ski depot at the lift.

    I would have no hesitation in recommending this family run and friendly hotel.

    Daniella and Franco are incredibly welcoming and hospitable. Staying at Le Campagnol is more like staying at a friend’s house rather than a hotel – they go over and above the expected level of service to make sure you are looked after. Highlight of staying here are the dinners and wine list which are exceptional. We’ll definitely be back!

    From the start of the holiday research process to the transfer back to Milan airport at the end of the holiday, Ski2 and Roger Walker Holidays could not be faulted. They were flexible, friendly, approachable and nothing was too much trouble! Our original holiday was booked for December and due to the lack of snow, we moved our holiday to Easter. The request was met at short notice with no fuss, we were thrilled. The Hotel Campagnol is lovely. It is a 2 star rated, but my children thought it was a 4 star. The room we had was a family room, no 14. It was a well proportioned double (or twin) bed room with wardrobe, bedside lamps and table and tv. Off the main bedroom was a smaller room with a bunk bed, with doors leading out onto a balcony, showing amazing views of the Alps and Champoluc valley. Another door led off the main bedroom to the en suite bathroom with bath. The bedrooms are spotless, pine clan and do feel a bit dark, but pull back the net curtains and see the views and it brightens up. Daniella and Franco were excellent hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. Daniella spoke English and Franco French. They were always happy and welcoming. Franco is an excellent chef and the evening meals were 4 course delicious mouth watering experiences. The hotel has wifi, which is great in the mornings but slows down in the evenings when everyone is on it. The living space is lovely, with great views over the Champoluc valley and a bar. We drank as much as we wanted with wine at dinner and soft drinks for the children and our weekly bar bill was just over €100 which was a lot cheaper than France.
    The hotel Campagnol is situated between Champoluc and Frachey. It is a 10 minute walk to the Ski2 office in Champoluc and gondola, or 10 minute walk to Frachey where there is a fenicucular train to take you up onto the slopes. We only walked if we wanted. All other times, we were given a lift by Daniella and Franco in their minibus or bus Ski2 who collected us from Frachey and took us back to the ski deposit at the Ski2 office. That was another great thing about the holiday, we didn’t have to carry our skis around! The boots, skis and poles were stored in the centre of Champoluc by the chair lift. No need to lug heavy skis and walk in uncomfortable boots! If we wanted to ski from Frachey, the Ski2 bus would take us there and pick us up. Kenn in the ‘ski fitting department’ along with all members of the team, were friendly and helpful, fitting boots and skis and generally just helping you with you boots at the start and end of the day. They are great with you children too! There is a ‘Penguin Club’.
    We had a group family lesson which was 2 hours for 5 days and had a great time. The instructor Susie was brilliant, encouraging my daughter who was lacking confidence loads. She was able to differentiate for all of us. Susie took me down the ‘Goat’ ski run on my last day. It was the best skiing I have every done. Controlled skiing, crisp snow and sunshine. I could not recommend this type of holiday enough. We loved every moment. A great experience. We will definitely recommend Roger Walker Travel and Ski2. The flexibility and helpfulness experienced throughout the holiday was excellent and reassuring. Thank you to all from the Hine Family!

    We stayed at the le campagnol last week (half term) on a family ski trip which we booked with ski2 and loved the friendly owners and staff who could not have been more attentive. The food was exceptional and the rooms comfortable, warm and spotlessly clean. This is not a 2 star hotel!! We were a group of 7 and took our 2 year old grandson and nothing was too much trouble, he was able to have early delicious teas and a separate, connected bedroom to himself – a great bonus for his parents. (Room 7). The wine list had a good selection of excellent wines at reasonable prices.
    Thank you Daniella and Franco we cant wait to return next year.

    We stayed at the Hotel Le Campagnol over New Year with a large group of family including small children and friends. We were very well looked after and had a great time in a very friendly and family orientated hotel.

    The rooms are warm, spacious and clean perhaps lacking in 5 star luxuries but great for those with smaller children. However, the extensive use of wood panelling in some rooms led them to be rather dark. One couple from our party was troubled by a large number of flies in their bedroom.

    The food was most well received by all and served with friendly efficiency. New Year’s Eve was a great evening, with good food and drink and a great time was had by all.

    The public rooms were warm and functional and the youngsters were able to enjoy themselves sensibly without their parents becoming too concerned!

    We had a good week. I would recommend this hotel for a family orientated holiday.

      We stayed as a family over the February half-term and enjoyed a lovely, relaxing week. No query, even from the children, was too difficult and we were made to feel very comfortable. The attitude of all the staff, including the inestimable Mignon (cat), was fantastic. The open sitting areas meant that the children could meet others staying at the same time and made good friends, as did we. If you don’t mind missing a few mod cons and prefer good value, good food and a friendly place, you will enjoy this place. Will definitely come back again.

    We stayed here over New Year with a large group of family and friends. We were very well looked after and had a great time in a very friendly and family orientated hotel. The rooms are warm, spacious and clean perhaps lacking in 5 star luxuries but great for those with smaller children. The corridors and stairs perhaps lack carpets which gives a rather hostel feel but the food and friendliness of the staff make up for the lack of luxuries. It is also good value. The hotel is out of town but between Ski2 and the hotel we were well supplied with bus rides to and from the lifts and the Penguin Club.
    Children’s meals were available at an earlier time and Franco tried very hard to accommodate our different dietary requirements. New Year’s Eve meal and celebrations were a highlight of the week.
    I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants pleasant rooms, good food and a warm welcome.

    Five of us stayed at Le Campagnol and were all extremely pleased. The food was exceptional, the rooms clean and comfortable, but the most endearing thing was the staff, they were fantastic! What more can you ask?

  8. Peter 19 March, 2014 at 11:04 am #

    The Campagnol and it’s staff are a great find… The staff could not do enough to accommodate us on our stay. The rooms were warm, clean and comfortable and the bathroom was spotless!

    Food was excellent, varied and plentiful.

    The Hotel was a little further out of the town than we anticipated, but could easily be walked in 10-15 mins, but the Ski2 team were always available (day and night) to taxi us around if needed.

    All in all a great find and perfect for a Skiing Break…

    Stayed here for 3 nights in March 2014. The hotel was excellent, very clean and comfortable, with friendly helpful staff. I would say it is way more than a 2* hotel. The food was very good, varied and plentiful, they were always happy to come round offering second helpings!
    Our room was spacious, warm and very clean, with a large shared veranda that overlooked the mountains.
    There is free wifi in all areas of the hotel. We never used the shuttle service, we preferred to take the 10/15 minute walk through the scenic, well lit forest trail every day.
    I would highly recommend this hotel for a comfortable, no frills stay and would stay here again.

  10. Jo & Dylan 26 February, 2014 at 8:56 pm #

    Owners and staff are very friendly and accommodating, nothing seems too much trouble. The hotel is just out of town which is not an issue as Franco or Ski2 provided us lifts in or out of town or we took the scenic stroll through the woods. Food was lovely and lots of it! Rooms were clean and our double with adjoining room for the kids worked a treat. Would definitely recommend as a good 2* option and happily book again.

  11. Sarah & Matt 25 February, 2014 at 9:58 am #

    A great find! Very friendly and helpful staff, spotlessly clean and comfy rooms, really delicious and excellent quality food – far above 2* standard. Great with our kids and nothing was too much trouble. Not far from the village – easily walkable with 3 kids, and Franco was very happy to drive us in the mornings. Would have preferred duvets, but rooms very homely with everything you need. Very highly recommended.

  12. Paul Harrison 9 May, 2013 at 6:18 pm #

    An unexpected gem of a hotel! Staff very friendly and natural, rooms well equipped and clean. Food excellent – home cooked, local, plenty of variety. The walk from the lift (which almost put us off booking this hotel) was in fact not a problem – the owner happily drove us to the main lift every morning, and a pleasant 10 min stroll back along a woodland trail in the evening.

  13. Sandra & Peter 26 March, 2013 at 1:13 pm #

    Excellent food, really friendly staff, very clean rooms, quiet & relaxing after a hard day skiing. Highly recommended.

The two star rated Hotel Le Campagnol was recently taken over by a young, friendly couple and Chef Franco, who used to work at the Hotel Breithorn, is producing some delicious meals. This is a great value hotel for those who aren’t looking for luxury accommodation but like their rooms to be warm and clean. Recently mentioned in Conde Nast Traveller magazine.
