Chamois

A small gem of the Alps, Chamois sits at a height of 1,815 meters above sea level in the Valtournenche basin, a handful of kilometers away from Mount Cervino. The town boasts the impressive record of being the highest borough in the Aosta Valley, and one of highest in all of Italy. Its charming streets welcome thousands of tourists every year, both in winter, during which Chamois is an exclusive skiing destination, and in summer, when it becomes a popular hub for hikers, off-road cyclists, and hang-gliding and paragliding enthusiasts.

Currently numbering fewer than 100 inhabitants, Chamois is a member of the exclusive “Pearls of the Alps” club as well as the only town in continental Italy not reachable by car, with the only available access routes being on foot, bicycle or by cableway ride from the nearby Buisson, a satellite borough of the town of Antey-Saint-André.

Chamois is part of a constellation of Alpine townships which includes some of the most picturesque mountain towns in Europe, brought together by a common will to promote environmental conservation and a gradual phasing out of automobile transportation. Inhabited since the Middle Ages, Chamois has all the features of a small Alpine borough: narrow sloping streets, hay-barns, stone and wooden houses and old rural huts, some of them dating back to the 17th century.

Peace, quiet and an all-natural setting are therefore the three staples of this sheltered corner of the Alps, making Chamois the ideal destination for seekers of an immersive experience in uncontaminated nature, deep in the heart of the Cervino Valley.
