Souze d’Oulx – Italy

Every year, at about this time, we head somewhere into Europe for a long weekend of skiing. Normally for about three or four days. Each time we go, it is easily one of the best weekends of the whole year.

This year our destination was Souze d’Oulx, a small village in the Milky Way ski region in Italy. About a two hour drive from Milan Malpensa airport.

Souze d’Oulx itself is a village of two halfs, one side is a classic Italian village, full of fine restaurants and crumbling old buildings full of beautiful architcture. Walk through this part and things change a little into a bustling ski village, full of, I thought quite surprisingly, cockneys and scousers. This part of the town is made up of countless bars, all catering to the apres ski crowd.

As with many Italian towns food is a large part and you can find some great places to eat in Souze, I shall get into some of the best places in an upcoming post.

So check back in the coming days for many more posts of my time in Souze d’Oulx.

Enjoy!
