GRESSONEY

The two villages of Saint-Jean (1385 m) and La-Trinité (1635 m) come together in a territorial and cultural unit commonly called Gressoney.

They are located in Valle d’Aosta, north-west Italy, in a smaller valley called Valle del Lys (from the river that flows through it). We are at the foot of Monte Rosa, the largest mountain massif in the Alps and the second in altitude. From this valley we can admire the Lyskamm glacier.

The Gressoney Valley (and in part the neighboring ones of Champoluc and Alagna Valsesia) were colonized about 8 centuries ago by the Walser, a population of Germanic origin from Zermatt (Switzerland). Throughout the territory we therefore find the typical architecture, such as the rural houses called Stadel, and we can hear the local dialect, called Titsch, spoken. It is still spoken by the local people and taught to children at school.

Not to be missed, in Gressoney-Saint-Jean, the Savoy Castle, surrounded by a botanical garden. It was the summer residence of Queen Margherita of Savoy. It is now owned by the Aosta Valley Region and can be visited.

As for skiing, from Gressoney-La-Trinité you can access the Monterosa Ski area: more than 100 km of slopes in three valleys and two regions (Valle d’Aosta and Piedmont) and with the highest point at 3250 m. In Gressoney-Sant-Jean we can ski on the Weissmatten area on the Leonardo David slope, one of the most beautiful in the entire Alpine arc, which can also be skied at night.

For lovers of Nordic skiing there are numerous ring trails that mostly develop in the woods.

Gressoney therefore offers a tourist experience in contact with nature and history, aimed at those who prefer peace and tranquility over the party and fun of big ski resorts..
