Arpette: Summer

Summer

Since 1926, members of the same family have succeded one another to make you experience an unforgettable moment in their magnificent mountain inn.

Bon plan

From Champex, walk up the course of the bisse. Bisses are the historic irrigation canals of Valais. ... let yourself be surprised by the charm of a stroll along the water, accompanied by the only sounds of flowing water and the songs of birds.

After about 30 minutes at a comfortable speed and a 200 meter climb, the experience is terrific. The Val d'Arpette opens up before your eyes.
