Gressoney-Saint-Jean is a Valle d’Aosta village of 810 residents in the province of Aosta, which is 78km away. Holding the Italian Touring Club’s Orange Flag certification since 2017, the town has hosted numerous illustrious guests worth remembering: Leonardo Da Vinci ventured to the slopes of Monte Rosa and Queen Margherita of Savoy was a guest of Baron Luigi Beck Peccoz. Her husband King Umberto I had the castle built in medieval style. Villa Margherita is the Town Hall headquarters today: at the entrance you can read the verses of the poet Giosuè Carducci, who was a guest here.
