Who we are
Each room is provided with a storeroom and a locker, where you can leave boots, skis, snow poles… and maybe a bike in the summer time!
Where are we
All of this in Chamois, in the Cervino valley. The Frazione Ville (nr. 32) was the first area in Chamois to be inhabited, and the first achievable following the path coming up from Buisson (six minutes by cable car) coming over the 700mt of difference in level.
Chamois can also be reached with a pleasant 4km hiking starting from La Magdeleine, passing through woods and fields.
You may often meet the gracious wild animals that gave the name at the town; the “chamois” (“camosci” in Italian), a kind of mountain goats, usually in the meadow under the cable car passage, nowadays used to its presence.
Chamois is well known, also by people that have never been here; probably because of being a village without any cars, and thanks to its qualification of “Pearl of the Alps” achieved some years go.
Other than the classical downhill (alpine) ski slopes, Chamois also offers you the possibility to practice cross country skiing, mountaineering skiing, and hiking with racket snowshoes through wonderful paths; the same paths that in the summer time become mountain bike and hiking stunning tracks, like the footpath to the Lod Lake and the one that leads you to the Clavalitè Sanctuary (2500m) from where you’ll have an amazing view on the Cervino mount and the others alpine peaks of the Val d’Aosta. Chamois is also a paradise for parapente!
How to get there
