Hotel Aigle and the wine and food tourism in summer

Here, at the Hotel Aigle, we know that to make our guests' holiday comfortable it is important to pay close attention to the cuisine. And we love to believe that our restaurant is up to the task.
On the other hand, the pleasures of the palate have no frontiers and even seasons. And then, in between a trip to the mountains and a ride with a mountain bike, it may be great to taste original flavors and enjoy special quality recipes.

As far as wine and food are concerned, Aosta Valley has a lot to offer. Cheeses, meats, preserves, cakes, wines, liquors. And all these wonders are at your fingertips from our Hotel.
You can make a short tour into Courmayeur city center looking around great cheese shops, delis, bakeries and wine bars. On their desks you can find all the best specialties of the Aosta Valley and beyond. You will find, for example, dairy products and meats of Savoy and Switzerland, as also many of the best Italian and French wines.
The open markets set up on via Rome or in other locations of upper Valle d'Aosta are also exciting opportunities to discover small-scale productions of high quality, which includes wines, preserves, honey and cheese. Hotel Aigle is concerned to keep the program of these events, in order to inform all our interested customers.
