Valle d’Aosta is a region in the north-west of Italy on the border with France and Switzerland. Located in the western Alps, it is known for the snow-capped peaks of the Cervino, Mont Blanc, Monte Rosa and Gran Paradiso. Courmayeur and Cervinia are among the most important ski resorts. The region’s countryside is dotted with castles and medieval fortresses, such as the Fénis Castle and the Verrès Castle, dating back to the 14th century.

 

THE GOLF COURSES

 

GOLF CLUB COURMAYEUR

  • The Golf Course was designed and built in the 1930’s by briton Peter Gannon and, thanks to the farsightedness of the Gilberti family, improved in the 1940’s by Henry Cotton. Since that time, when golf was the dominion of the few, and limited was also the number of people enjoying the Alps during summertime, much has changed. Today, driving through the spectacular Val Ferret, you can quickly reach the Golf Course.

GOLF CLUB AOSTA

  • Located at an altitude of m. 1.050 s.l.m., in the splendid natural setting of the Valley of G. San Bernardo, surrounded by the highest peaks in Europe. The Aosta Arsanières golf club was founded in 1991 with the idea of exploiting a microclimate that allows almost nine months of play; mild winters and cool summers create the ideal place for all the passionate players, who wish to play and spend a few hours in a charming and familiar environment. The nine holes of the course, overlooking a balcony surrounded by enchanting mountain forests, dominate the city and the valley. The course winds for a length of about 2 km, with some respectable holes, such as the n. 7 (Par 3 – 180 m) and the n. 8 (Par 4 – 370 m.). The tracks are narrow, the greens are small, and the bunkers add to the natural dangers of out-of-bounds and some ponds.

Taverns, trattorias, restaurants

“Da Nando”

An inn that does not offer banal dishes and in which those who assist you are familiar with what is needed on the table. “Da Nando” is the address for you. Few indoor seats, small dehors, so better to book. Franca and Michel prepare classic dishes with local raw materials. Here very little salt is used, the flavor is given by the combinations, the marinades, the use of aromatic herbs.

Recommended delicacies

Zuppa vapellenentse, Carbonade, Costatine di maialino da latte al pane verde, polenta con fonduta e uovo al tegamino, crema di sant’orso.

“Il Balivo”

Almost at the end of the main street of Champoluc, where Monte Rosa can be admired as a backdrop, the tavern is a bit of a refuge, full of historical references, and a little modern bistro. Wood and stone make it a typical mountain restaurant with an open fireplace useful for preparing grilled vegetables and meat with baked potatoes. Here the kitchen has found its strong point in a very close relationship with local producers, preferably young farmers and growers in the area, without giving up, when necessary, to guess extraterritorial digressions privileging Piedmont and France.

Recommended delicacies

Millefoglie con ragu’ di pezzata rossa e bleu d’Aosta, polenta con fontina di Mascognaz, faraona farcita, filetto di maialino glassato, cialde con gelato alla panna e frutti di bosco.
