The itinerary enables you to visit the characteristic dwellings buttressed in the steep slopes of the lower Gressoney valley and reach the saddle that connects the high hamlets of Perloz and Arnad and the historical Machaby Sanctuary.
The meadows in front of the hill contain one of the rare peony sites in Val d’Aosta. The plant is rigorously protected by regional laws and blossoms spectacularly in the first half of June.
