Ski resort with eye on wellness debuts in the Italian Alps
POSTED 08 Jan 2019 . BY Andrew Manns
Luxury group Italian Hospitality Collection (IHC) has opened Le Massif, its first resort in the Aosta Valley.

Designed by Italian architects Fabrizio Gandolfo and Inart Studio, the alpine property, which comprises a hotel and off-site chalet in Courmayeur, is located in the shadow of Mont Blanc and features 80 rooms and suites, a fitness centre, two gourmet restaurants – Cervo Rosso Steakhouse and Chetif – and two bars.

According to Gandolfo, the earth-toned and minimalist design of the resort takes inspiration from "the strong personality" of the Aosta Valley’s larch forests.

Le Massif also offers various wellness therapies through its spa programmes, such as forest bathing and alpine stone massages.

Each of the treatments is modelled on what the company has called "Equilibrium", an anti-inflammatory approach to health and wellbeing which emphasises stress reduction, physical exercise, and nutrition.

In a statement, IHC said the philosophy "draws on thousands of years of thermal spa traditions in Italy and Psychoneuroendocrine Immunology (PNEI)".

"Equilibrium," the company explained, "considers the individual as a whole in terms of their mind and body as well as their relationships with the environment."

Le Massif is IHC’s fourth venue to debut in Italy, joining the group's portfolio of spas and hotels in Tuscany and Sardinia.
