Piedmont's Magical Valley

Piedmont's Magical Valley Overview

Challenging walks in an enchanting fold of the Cottian Alps close to the French border are rewarded by fantastic views and cosy mountain retreats.

  • self-guided hotel-to-hotel walking, luggage transported
  • walk the highlights of the ‘Percorsi Occitani’
  • stay in cosy mountain retreats, enjoying regional specialities
  • challenging high mountain walking following ancient ways
  • stunning lakes and abundant fresh springs

 

In Piedmont’s remote and rugged Valle Maira, which occupies a magical fold of the Cottian Alps close to the French border, the Occitan language still lives on – often in song – and formerly deserted mountain villages are being born again, thanks to the renovation of a network of ancient paths which circumnavigate the valley, known as the ‘Percorsi Occitani’.
