About Philip Sykes

We have a passion for Italy, the mountains and skiing. This is a hidden secret, with the most amazing skiing.

I live in England with my wife and 3 children. My wife and I both work, we try and get to the mountains for long weekends and family skiing. We have made wonderful friends in Italy and have really fallen in love with the country, people, food and wine.

Philip Sykes purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Philip Sykes chose Valtournenche

We love Cervinia, Valtournenche & Zermatt, you can ski from Italy to Switzerland with amazing views of the Matterhorn, the skiing is fantastic with wide open pistes & great snow surety as the resorts are so high, we have skied the area as early as mid November and as late as the 10th May. In peak times, you very rarely have to queue. The skiing offers something for everyone, beginners to advanced skiers as well as cross country skiing, ice skating, swimming, snowmobiling, out door children play areas, great restaurants and lot’s more. There really is something for everyone here. The area is easily accessible from Turin or Milan Malpensa airport, (about an hour forty-five minutes by car). Or Geneva airport (about 3 hours drive). The locals in the valley are so friendly and welcoming.

What makes this chalet unique

The property is five minutes by car to the Valtournenche Ski Lift (Gondola). The chalet is spread over 4 floors. It has an open plan living area with a modern kitchen & a wonderful wood burner, the lounge/dinning area has two glass French doors which open onto a balcony, looking down the valley. The accommodation comprises of: 4 double bedrooms and three bathrooms, one of which has a large shower/steam room. There is a fully equipped laundry & a separate playroom for the children. The chalet is equipped with 2 televisions & 2 DVD players, a video machine & a hi-fi system; it also has an IPod dock. The chalet is available for self catering rent as a long weekend or as a weekly let. The let, includes, linen & towels & cleaning on departure. Baby sitting service can be arranged.

Mandy Fenner and Family, UK - Xmas ‘12

We had an amazing time in this well equipped, lovely chalet,we were sharing with 9 adults and there was plenty of space, nice comfy beds and a very cosy living room with a lovely wood burner, the owner is well relaxed and incredible helpful, nothing was to much off an effort for him to make our stay very, very enjoyable, The ski area is lovely, nice wide big runs, lovely mountain restaurants with good food. We had a fantastic time and already booked for next year! Thank you Philip for sharing your little dream with us!

Geoffrey M Trimm, London, UK - Feb ‘09

What a fantastic chalet. This was my second time to Piccolo Sogno and everything was just as perfect as the first time. The chalet easily accommodates two families without feeling on top off each other. The quality of the finish is very high and feels like a home from home. Valtounenche works incredibly easily and the skiing is awesome. I couldn't fault the chalet and will be recommending i

Perfect chalet, perfect location, loved our week here

  • 5 of 5

The chalet was exactly as it was advertised, the email and phone support from the owners was invaluable leading up to our stay and during when we needed to contact him. You will need a car during your stay as it is 1500m up a windy road from the main road and a further 1k from the ski lift. But an easy drive to shops and restaurants. Chalet is well equipped and had everything you could possibly need

Un buon vacanze

  • 5 of 5

Eravamo un gruppo di otto che siamo stati al Piccolo Sogno per una settimana - e siamo molto soddisfatti del piccolo chalet (non è in realtà così piccola ...) Le camere sono molto belle, il salotto e la cucina sono confortevoli e ben attrezzate . E 'un po' lontano per il villaggio, ci vogliono cirka 20 minuti a piedi.
