From the heart of the Rhêmes-Notre-Dame central valley, in the beautiful dale that marks the western border of the Gran Paradiso National Park. The road is excellent, smooth, an invitation to get into full-relaxation mode, and enjoy the scenery and greenery that fills your eyes.

The apple, the authentic flavor of the Aosta Valley
You inhale an intense and intoxicating perfume, in these parts. It’s the scent of the apple, true queen of the central valley. Across the region 4,400 tons are produced every year, but the highest concentration of orchards is right here, between Saint-Pierre and Villeneuve, in the basin that spans to reach the Val di Rhêmes. So don’t pass through in a hurry… Stop at Pain de Coucou, Saint-Pierre Cofruits co-operative outlet. It’s the right place if you want to go home with a sweet memory in your hard luggage: From dried apples, a charge of energy and flavor, to the Martin Sec, the trademark pears that become truly superb when candied or cooked in wine.

Rhêmes-Notre-Dame
Upon arriving up here is a magnificent sight. You find yourself in a broad green basin, in a beautiful and evocative village. All around you, other than houses and the ancient church, only pastures and coniferous forests. It’s the ideal destination if you dream of a different kind of day, far from the busiest locations and streets. A plate of steaming polenta, a nice rest on the grass… A corner of paradise that remains in the hearts of those who love nature and real mountains.
