  • Up here in the beautiful Italian and French vacationers lawns are one; comes to us from Bardonecchia on one side and the beautiful valley clarea apart. We come here often for a picnic in the meadows surrounded by trees with a backdrop of the Alps. p.s: a paradise for anyone who has a dog.

  • By taking a day trip we walked from the pass of the ladder leading to the town of BARDONNECHIA (city of the Olympic Games in TURIN in 2006). The place is nice, you have parking at the pass, then after the pass you have a very nice set for a picnic. You can hike out of the neck. PS: If you go to the village of BARDONNECHIA attention or you park your vehicle. I took a picture a poster stating that the vehicles were very easily fined (see photo)

  • Often step from this Hill to go to France or going specifically for eating in the meadows. First of all to get there the road is perfect and a great plateau between trees, meadows and mountains allows you to spend unforgettable moments of peace. And what should not be overlooked that there are plenty of space for everyone.

  • Port of mountain sniper and easily accessible from France and hard and air from Italy. The transition from one side to another has a high Valley of green meadows, flanked by mountains more than 2mil meters. Highly recommended to make the bike tour
