Gressoney-Saint-Jean, an elegant tourist resort already favoured by Queen Margaret of Savoy, who chose it for her summer holidays. The town occupies a vast plateau at the foot of Monte Rosa, which is reflected in the waters of Lake Gover. Characterized by numerous small agglomerations of Walser houses, linked by easy walks along historical paths, the village includes: Villa Margherita, seat of the town hall; the Alpenfaunamuseum, which houses a priceless collection of hunting and alpine fauna; and the Savoy Castle, which, immersed in the woods and illuminated, seems to have come straight out of a fairy tale. In summer, in addition to hiking on trails of varying difficulty, it offers a golf course, via ferrata and the Sport Haus. In winter - in addition to skating on Lake Gover, walking with snowshoes and climbing on the frozen waterfalls - the Nordic skiing trails can be used to meet the top athletes of the national team or to ski down the Weissmatten slope at night. Numerous festivals, including religious ones, such as the procession of St. John and the Assumption, with the women dressed in beautiful Walser costumes, enliven guests' days, with tastings of the local gastronomy, with the Toma di Gressoney on top.
