New Club Med in Milky Way region
Club Med has announced that it will have another base in the Alps next winter, with a new resort in Italy’s Milky Way region.
The Club Med Pragelato will be based at the chalet village built for the 2006 Torino Winter Olympics. The resort is linked by cable car to Sestriere, part of the 400km Milky Way ski area that also includes Montgenevre in France. The holiday village will have all the usual Club Med attractions, such as children’s club facilities, and be centred around a cluster of 20 traditional chalets.
The company has been steadily renewing its image during recent seasons, favouring a more upmarket approach. Several former Club Meds have been closed or refurbished, while new centres have emerged in Valmorel, France and even in China.
