    I went today with my husband in this corner of paradise. Breathtaking view, you are completely immersed in the green of the mountain. Council a stage in the fairytale village of Usseaux lying on the way to the Hill.

    Valle del Chisone is utterly beautiful, coming into full view as you travel West from Pinerollo. We stayed in Mentoules, I recommend the new family restaurant in the village.  more »
