London, 11 September 2013 – Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services and an operating business of Interval Leisure Group (Nasdaq: IILG), announced the affiliation of 21 timeshare units at Residence La Splaza, a seasonal ski and summer resort in the Italian Alps. The new units are located in Scala N, part of the well-established development in the popular Montecampione ski resort near Boario and Lake Iseo in Valcamonica, one of the largest valleys in the eastern Lombardy region of Italy.
"We look forward to working with the developers of Residence La Splaza, who have built this successful timeshare community that dates back to the 1980s," said Darren Ettridge, Interval’s senior vice president of resort sales and business development for Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Asia. "The surrounding area offers numerous groomed trails for all levels of skiers, as well as a host of summer activities for our members to enjoy.”
Located at an altitude of 1200 metres or nearly 4,000 feet, the destination is renowned for its downhill and freestyle skiing and snowboarding from mid-December to the beginning of April. During the summer season, hiking, tennis, and golf are popular activities.
The complex features a number of on-site and nearby facilities that are available depending on the season: ice skating rink, pool, gym, playground, soccer pitch and basketball, as well as tennis and volleyball courts. Guests also have access to restaurants and bars, a market, pharmacy and shops, and an intra-resort minibus service. The units that are part of Interval’s network include studios and one- and two-bedrooms and are housed in a new building adjacent to the main ski lift. Each has a kitchen and balcony.
"We are excited about this expansion to our existing resort, so that we can welcome more guests to this beautiful part of the Italian Alps," said Alessio Rocchetti, managing director of Edilombarda06 Srl, developers of the resort. "Our partnership with Interval International will give our owners the ability to sample other destinations available through its quality vacation exchange network. It will also introduce Residence La Splaza to skiers and active vacationers throughout the world."
