Chamois is a peaceful place at an altitude of 1815 metres, in the middle of the Cervino Valley, on the left bank of the Marmore river.
Chamois is the highest town in Valle d’Aosta and one of the highest in Italy.
The town can only be reached via cable car departing from Buisson, a hamlet in Antey-Saint-André (Cable car: tel. +39.0166.519890 or +39. 0166.47136); there is also a mule track that can be covered in around two hours, that takes you to Chamois on foot or by bicycle.
There are no cars in this town: the town has preserved all the characteristics of a small Alpine village with houses in wood and stone and the small roads that wind through it. This unusual aspect is jealously defended by its inhabitants, who appreciate the benefits in terms of tranquility and are quite happy to live in relative isolation.
Chamois offers tourists who discover it, the opportunity to enjoy a unique holiday, far from the usual places, in a truly exceptional location, in contact with nature and in complete peace and quiet.
In winter, the ski facilities offer various kinds of downhill descents, with beautiful slopes covering more than 16 kilometres.
The Alpine ski excursion from Colle di Falinère to Valtournenche is particularly interesting.
