VAL VENY

Val Veny is one of the most fascinating places in the Valle d’Aosta region, wild and ancestral in its charm. Just a few kilometers away from Courmayeur, it stretches from the village of Entreves up to Col de la Seigne pass, that marks the border with France.

The Valley offers a variety of environments and is a parade of beautiful unspoiled landscapes, from the alpine glades, along the river Dora, to the hundred-year-old larch forests, from the eternal glaciers, to the peaks of the Mont Blanc chain, from the alpine lakes of Miage, to the limestone of Les Pyramides.

In the winter, it’s the realm of ski and free ride, while in the summer it welcomes trail and walk fans, as well as climbers form all over the world.

However, Val Veny is not only landscapes and nature, like Courmayeur, it has a complex and sometimes contradictory personality.
Here the beauty of nature intermingles with man and his history creating a dialogue the words of which have been the same for centuries, respect, adaptation, coexistence, challenge, reception.

Many stories are linked to this Valley, a frontier land and crossing point that will deeply touch whoever visits and lives its spirit.
