Mountain systems of the Aosta Valley have sketched a natural skyline where 4 peaks are easily recognised: Mont-Blanc, Mount Cervino or Matterhorn, Mount Rosa and Mount Gran Paradiso. There are many breath-taking natural landscapes, such as those of the Comboé Basin or the Valleys of Saint-Barthélemy. And then of course there are lakes, nature reserves and many castles ans ruins to visit. The Aosta Valley is worth seeing at every season: summer is the ideal season for walks and for trekking and the Pila ski resort offers a great ski day in winter.
The Region, with its stunning nature, is popular because of its simple dishes and its exclusive chesses and sausages. The “Vallée d’Aoste Jambon de Bosses” is araw ham spiced with mountain herbs, produced at an altitude of 1600 meters. The “Valleé d’Aoste Lard d’Arnad” is a product with a protected designation of origin (PDO) obtained from the back of the pig. “Fontina” is a cheese that brings together all the exclusive aspects of unpasteurized and whole milk. The “Blanc de Morgex et de La Salle” and the “Enfer d’Arvier” are authentic and high quality mountain wines.
