About the village

Torgnon forms part of the Mountain Community of Mount Cervino (the Matterhorn) and lies at an altitude of between 800 and 3,320 metres. The village comprises 22 hamlets scattered across a broad and sunny glacial shelf.

In the Middle Ages the municipality belonged to the Lordship of the Cly family, whose authority extended beyond the Alps as far as Sion. Afterwards, the fief was conquered by the Savoys who governed it for about 200 years through a castellan. In 1550 it was ceded to the Moralis family, then successively to the Fabri, to the Roncas and finally to the Bergera, who in 1750 once and for all renounced their feudal rights over the municipality of Torgnon.

The mild flank of the mountain on which the village lies is one of the most sunny of the Aosta valley: in summer and winter the climate is perfect for charming and restorative excursions, either on foot, on snowshoes or on skis. Some of the panoramic views are breathtaking, such as that from the hill of St Pantaléon looking towards the Matterhorn.

For lovers of winter sports, Torgnon is equipped with ski lifts giving access to fine slopes suitable for beginners as well as experienced skiers. It has excellent cross-country ski runs, too, which emerge from the forest unfolding extensive and magical views.

Staying in Torgnon means choosing to be part of a community, being pampered and feeling at home, whether you choose the comfort of a hotel in country facilities elegantly renovated, with spa, WI-FI, services for the whole family, or whether you prefer the authentic character of a farmhouse sweetened by local productions.
