We are in Chamois, the “Pearl of the Alps”, in the Matterhorn valley.
In the hamlet called “Ville”, the house at no. 32 is the oldest, the first inhabited one of the nucleus, the first one that is reachable from the path that climbs up from Buisson (also via the cable car in 6 minutes) to surpass 700 meters of difference in altitude.
Chamois can also be reached on a pleasant excursion from La Magdeleine, traveling about four kilometers on a flat farm trail (closed to cars).
Often you can meet the cute animals that give the name to the Municipality (the chamois) in the meadows under the path of the cable car, which are now accustomed to its presence.
Besides the ski slopes, winter offers a cross-country trail and trails for ski mountaineering and snowshoeing, which in summer become itineraries for mountain bikes and excursions, such as the ascent to Lake Lod and the Clavalité Sanctuary (2500 m.), from where you can enjoy the view of the Matterhorn and the other peaks of the Valle d’ Aosta. Chamois is also a paragliding paradise!

How to get here by car
Chamois is the only municipality in Valle d’Aosta which cannot be reached by car. You can only arrive by taking the cable car in the Buisson hamlet.
Exit the motorway at Châtillon-Saint-Vincent.
Once you reach the stop sign, turn right and after a few hundred metres, just before the centre of Saint-Vincent, drive to the right of the fork (sign for Cervinia). From here the underpass will allow you to reach State Road 26 and follow the directions for Châtillon. Follow the state road for about a kilometre until you come to a roundabout. Take a right for the regional road to Valtournenche and Cervinia, which arrives to the municipality of Antey-Saint-André after a few kilometres. Continue driving for about 3 kilometres until you reach the Buisson district, where, on the right, the cable car for Chamois leaves every half hour, or every 15 minutes if there are queues.
