LIVE YOUR MOUNTAIN EXPERIENCE
FROM PAST TO PRESENT
In the past, the name “La Grange” referred to a rustic house used as a barn, next to the farmer’s house.
The old building has now been completely renovated, while preserving its original architecture, in particular its vaulted cellar and stone walls. Today it is a place dedicated to the tasting of wines, liqueurs and specialities of the Aosta Valley, produced by the managers of the structure, who own an agricultural company.
Following the renovation, La Grange has four comfortably rooms and a small apartment with kitchen and private access, perfect for those who prefer to be more independent.
WHAT TO DO IN AOSTA VALLEY
For downhill skiing lovers, it means exploring 19 ski resorts, 800 km of runs and 9 snowparks, and exhilarating off-piste itineraries that can be reached with ski lifts or by helicopter from heli-skiing bases. Also, on the runs at the foot of the Matterhorn you can even ski in the summer!
The large ski resorts of Aosta Valley are the international ones of Breuil-Cervinia (between Italy and Switzerland), La Thuile (between Italy and France). One of the best known resort is Courmayeur, at the foot of Mont Blanc, that is the capital of Alpinism since 200 years, a typical alpine village, offering a wide choice for food and fashion lovers too! The ancient town of Aosta, named the “Rome of the Alps” because of its beautiful and well preserved roman monuments, is connected by cable car to the resort of Pila, a natural balcony offering a 360° view on the highest peaks of the Alps. Cogne and other smaller ski resorts are ideal places for families.
Aosta Valley is a favourite destination with ski mountaineering enthusiasts, as it is possible here for seven months a year, from November to June, and the region hosts a number of major competitions, such as the legendary Mezzalama Trophy and Tour du Rutor Extreme.
The large variety of routes present means everyone is sure to find a trip suited to their particular skiing and athletic skills: from climbs of a few hours on open slopes to routes on the glaciers lasting two or more days. A number of peaks can be reached on skis, including the Gran Paradiso, the only one of the Four-Thousanders entirely on Italian soil. Climbers are strongly recommended to tackle routes with the help of a professional alpine guide.
In the Aosta Valley, amid the giants of the Alps (Mont Blanc, Matterhorn, Monte Rosa and Gran Paradiso), skiing is always and extra-special experience: you can try out new runs every day for a week and explore uncharted more itineraries throughout our valley.
For cross-country skiing, the Aosta Valley offers hundreds of kilometres of trails that are always perfectly prepared both for skating and classical skiing. Trails often pass through the wilderness at the foot of majestic mountains where it is not unheard of to see wild animals too.
Several stations feature a “Foyer de fond” with ski waxing rooms, changing rooms and showers. At some places — such as Cogne or the Val Ferret — you will even find marked out walking tracks.
