Autumn in Courmayeur

During these uncertain times we feel very lucky to have one thing we can rely on: the beauty of nature all around us in Courmayeur. This time of year is one of reflection – of the Summer that has passed and the Winter to come and I wonder if it isn’t my absolute favourite time to be outside, kicking up the leaves as we did when we were children and exploring the valley on cool, crisp, sunny days.

On our journeys to and from the hotel each day, the mountains become more and more beautiful.  The tops of the mountains are dusted with snow like icing sugar and this crisp white layer creepsslowly down towards the deep oranges and reds of Autumn on the valley floor.Autumn is at its peak now in Courmayeur with the foliage of the trees a riot of colour against a backdrop of green and white.  The pretty Alpine town is enjoying the quieter pace of life  and in the Abbé J.M. Henry Park  the contrasts of green privet and Douglas fir against blackthorn, roses, hawthorn, viburnum and late blooming honeysuckle is fabulous.

On the mountains, at the foot of Mont Blanc, you can enjoy the hiking trails by foot or on mountain bike. The Val Ferret , always stunning above Courmayeur is looking absolutely fabulous right now.

Courmayeur tourist office is busy hosting weekends of free hikes and relaxation classes and we are taking part this year in a Europe-wide challenge to capture the essence of Autumn.  Take your best Autumnal photo and post it to Instagram with the hashtag #Autumnatitspeak. The best photos will be published on the site.You need to act fast though because snow is forecast this week, which could turn the area from a riot of colour to magical whites, greys and blues…For all of us, when we are thinking ahead everything seems very uncertain, but nature shows us that everything is constantly changing and unfolding as it should be. At the hotel, we are tending to the garden and scrupulously cleaning both inside and out. The renovations are still new, but we want to make sure that everything stays looking that way for you. As each bedroom is different, we are thinking of how we can enhance each suite for the next guests that will come to stay.This is always an enjoyable task for us as we can think of nothing better than the next time our family will be hosting new guests.

Locally, we are all conscious of the impending ski season and the uncertainty surrounding it. We hope that the new measures put in place by the government will allow us to open safely, but we are also mindful of the obvious – people have to travel to come skiing and right now, it is usually Italians that are booking with us as everyone is looking closer to home.We will know more for sure in November but with every new development we will keep you updated. Our blogs will allow you to see what life is like locally and we will also update you with the latest news on restrictions so that you can be as informed as possible when thinking about staying in Courmayeur.

If you want to ask us anything please get in touch, we are always happy to help.
