Nature, culture, history and art. The Valle d’Aosta in every season is an open-air treasure, inviting you to discover its secrets and ancient traditions.
Depending on your tastes and expectations, you will certainly find different ideas for organising your next trip, and below are just a few of the thousands of ideas on what to do and see near Chatillon.
Discover the new way of approaching Mont Blanc! Immerse yourself in a borderline dream travel experience. The Skyway Mont Blanc is an extreme feat of engineering, allowing you, in 15 minutes, to reach the 3466-metre peak of Punta Helbronner, the closest point to Mont Blanc!
During the ascent, the futuristic cabin rotates on itself and allows you to admire the surrounding panorama in 360°, with a breathtaking view of the Giant of Europe and surrounding peaks such as the Matterhorn, Monte Rosa and Gran Paradiso.
Aosta, with the name of Augusta Pretoria, was founded in 25 B.C. within a rectangle perfectly bounded to the north by the mountain slope, to the east by the course of the Buthier and to the south by that of the Dora Baltea.
Because of the importance of the Roman remains and testimonies, Aosta is still called the ‘Rome of the Alps’. If you love history, don’t miss a visit to the town and the main vestiges of Roman Aosta, such as the Roman Theatre, the Arch of Augustus, the Porta Pretoria and the town walls.
There are a large number of castles scattered throughout the territory, starting with the Chatillon castle in the heart of the town (but which cannot be visited because it is private) and the Ussel castle, one of the oldest in the Aosta Valley. The third castle in Chatillon is the Baron Gamba, also interesting because it is a regional centre of modern art: it offers an important exhibition of paintings, sculptures, installations and photographic collections, as well as a large English-style park surrounding it.
Without forgetting other famous castles in the Val d’Aosta, such as the Castle of Fénis, that of Issogne and above all the Fort of Bard.
If you love to bask in the pleasures of the wellness centres spas, follow the The Aosta Valley Spa Route, which we propose. We have agreements with the nearby Saint-Vincent Thermal Spa, the L’Eve Wellness Centre, the Monterosa Thermal Spa (35 km away) and the Pré St. Didier Thermal Spa (60 km away)!
Did you know that Chatillon is considered the City of Honey and that it is part of the Association uniting the Italian honey capitals? If you happen to be in these parts in October, consider that on the last weekend you can visit a truly sweet festival!
Come along and discover “The Magic of Christmas in the Aosta Valley“. The most important places will be Aosta, home of the famous “Marché Vert Noel” (Christmas Market); Chatillon; the evocative setting of the Gamba Castle with “Chateau Noel – Father Christmas’s Village”; and Saint-Vincent, an enchanting mountain pearl, an ideal place for Christmas shopping.
From November to January, the Marché Vert Noel, one of the best-loved Christmas markets in Northern Italy, will immerse you in a real Alpine village in the heart of the city of Aosta, in a unique atmosphere, against the splendid backdrop of the Roman Theatre in the heart of the city.
No less Chatillon, where Father Christmas arrives. On weekends in December, the Gamba Castle is transformed into a big Christmas village(Chateau Noel), hosting Father Christmas’s Village with its elves, merry-go-round, shows, children’s entertainment and workshops, and lots of fun.
The Valle d’Aosta is also, above all, a ‘territory to taste’. There are numerous typical products that you can seek out on your next holiday. Cheeses include the Fontina; the Toma di Gressoney or goat’s cheese. Among the charcuterie products are the Jambon de Bosses; the Lard d’Arnad; the Saint-Oyen grilled jambon. Among the wines, the Blanc de Morgex et de La Salle; the Torrette DOC or the Chambave Muscat DOC.
Not to mention the aforementioned honey or mountain herb distillates (Genepy is only found in Val d’Aosta!).
