The Hotel Petit Tournalin is a cosy, family-run hotel with welcoming staff and enviable views across the mountains. If you're looking to take on the walking trails, the Petit Tournalin is the perfect base in the mountains to relax after a day of hiking.

A mountain retreat

You're around 500 metres away from the village which means you can enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the mountains but you're within walking distance of the local amenities and lifts. Why not head to the lovely lounge and bar area after a day of hiking and enjoy an aperitivo - there is even a sauna and whirlpool if you truly want to relax. 

Enjoy delicious cuisine

You're always well-fed at the Hotel Petit Tournalin with excellent food on offer. The restaurant with its cosy, chalet-style interior is an inviting experience coupled with delicious food and a great selection of wine (wine payable locally).

The mountains around Champoluc are fantastic in the summertime. Ask any local and they'll tell you that summer is the best season! Champoluc's small French town vibes bring people back year on year. They can't get enough of the local cheese, wine and endless walking opportunities. It's like stepping into a real life re-enactment of Russel Crowe's A Good Year. If you're looking for a slower paced walking holiday, where you can really get to know the local way of life and taste the typical food, then this is the place for you. 

Champoluc, a town for locals

Everyday in Champoluc becomes more familiar. You'll leave with the feeling that you've known it all your life. Just walking along the river you'll find endless hidden gems, from the intricate wood carvings that line the riverside path, to public barbeque spots sitting in little wooded coves. There are always youngsters and locals barbequing and having a great time - giving the town its communal feel. All the hotels in this area have a really welcoming and cosy atmosphere, it's like a home away from home.

Wildflower flecked fields

The pretty village of Champoluc is made more so by the Evançon River that runs through it, with its electric-blue glacier melt. During the summer months the wildflowers will be in full bloom, freckling the meadows with delicate pastel colours. At some points it feels like you've stepped into a painting by Monet. It's not all about the views on the ground though, if you look up you'll find yourself surrounded by some very unique mountains, each with wonderful shadowing on them. When the sun hits them in the right place, they'll emanate a glow which brightens up the whole valley.

Earn your lunch on a Val d’Ayas hike

Hike to an alpine hut that just so happens to be home to the highest elevation cheese cellar in Europe - what an accolade! The 9.4km Tchavana walk should take two to three hours and, best-of-all, ends at agriturismo La Tchavana. It not only has one of the best views of the Monte Rosa glacier but a restaurant serving local dishes, and a shop selling cheeses and cured meats to bring home or to eat on your mountain-side picnic. The Monte Rosa massif stretches from Switzerland into Italy and its peaks reach up to 4,600m - that’s the second highest in Europe after only Mont Blanc. This high-altitude terrain means there are incredible hiking trails, as well as mountaineering around the glacier, making Champoluc a great base if you’re looking for a challenge.

The Family Feeling

Champoluc is a deceptively tranquil town, because when you look closely you'll find heaps of activities popping up. The little archery school on the riverside is great fun for an hour or two of entertainment. Alternatively, head into the woods just off the main town and you'll find an adventure ropes course and paint-balling. Every now and then an outdoor games area pops up, free for anyone to come along and enjoy. It's called 'Giochi della Nonna', Granny's Games - this is a throwback to all the wooden board games that were played in the past and a great way to get children off their iPads. Drop the children off and head to the golf course which spans over a lawn near the river - make sure you watch out for flying balls though!
