Welcome to our selection of holiday homes to rent in Torgnon, Italy.
Situated high in the Italian Alps, in the heart of the skiing area of Valle d'Aosta, the small town of Torgnon is an ideal destination for those who enjoy both winter sports and summer activities, such as hiking and mountain biking. Surrounded by stunning mountain scenery, there are dozens of cross-country skiing trails in the area, which are then used by walkers and climbers once the snow has melted in the spring. Torgnon itself is a picturesque town, with a spectacular view of Monte Cervino, the Italian name for the world-famous Matterhorn.
Although most people visit Torgnon and the rest of the Valle d'Aosta to take advantage of the excellent ski slopes, there are plenty of summer activities available too, for those who enjoy exploring the great outdoors. There are dozens of marked trails that you can follow on foot or on bicycle, with routes that are suitable for beginners, as well as those for more experienced hikers. You can hire a mountain bike from the town, while the nearby equestrian centre also runs day trips to some of the best viewpoints in the Torgnon area.
In the winter, it is possible to combine hiking and skiing on routes such as the climb to the 2,500 metre Cima Bianca, while cross-country skiing, through the mountain passes into neighbouring valleys, is a popular way to explore the Valle d'Aosta – especially if you combine it with a trip to one of the many mountain shelters now converted into restaurants. The ski slopes themselves in the Torgnon region rise to an altitude of over 2,000 metres and cover 20 kilometres, offering runs for beginners, as well as more experienced skiers. Many of the lifts and cable cars developed for the ski tourists stay open all year, so you can enjoy the views without breaking into a sweat.
The pretty and charming town of Torgnon itself is worth exploring and is home to the 19th century church of San Martino, though many of the internal details like the pulpit and many of the decorations date from earlier buildings. The area known as 'Petit-Monde' just outside of Torgnon is actually two villages, Triatel and Etirol, that have retained much of the typical Alpine architecture, while Triatel is home to a small museum about the history and culture of the Valle d'Aosta region. Also on the outskirts of Torgnon is the nature reserve around the Lo Ditor Lake, a beautiful area for walks in the spring and summer and only about an hour on foot from the centre of the town.
