Breuil Cervinia in summer
BREUIL-CERVINIA (municipality of Valtournenche - 2.012 meters above sea level) is located at the northern limit of Valtournenche, on the slopes of Mount Cervino, in the north-east of Valle d'Aosta.
Tourism in Breuil-Cervinia began to develop at the end of the 800th century, thanks to the mountaineers who reached the locality to try to conquer the summit of Mount Cervino (4478m asl).
Today, thanks to the significant increase in accommodation, ski and sports facilities, it is a holiday center of international level and fame. The ski lifts are connected with those of Zermatt, on the Swiss side of the Matterhorn, and with those of Valtournenche, thus forming a single ski area with over 350 km of slopes. Here the ski season extends throughout the year thanks to the facilities that allow you to quickly reach the Plateau Rosa and Ventina glaciers and have fun practicing summer skiing.
In the summer, when the snow leaves the scene, it is an explosion of colors and the curtain rises on pastures and woods rich in flora and wildlife, streams, alpine lakes and waterfalls.
Cervinia offers a wide choice of activities. You can play golf on the spectacular 18-hole course, one of the highest in Europe, climbing with the famous Matterhorn Guides, trekking, climbing, mountain biking, Downhill on equipped trails, horse riding, roller skating, swimming in covered and heated pools, sport fishing, tennis, adventure park and all summer sports and entertainment which, practiced in one of the most beautiful natural scenery in the Alps, offer an unforgettable holiday .
Tourist hospitality is one of the added factors of Cervinia, in addition to hotels and restaurants, it has numerous clubs for evening entertainment and various wellness centers, often part of the services offered by the hotels themselves.
Equally large is the calendar of summer events including the "Cervino Cinemountain International Filmfestival", the international mountain bike competition and the European Cup of Free Ride "Maxiavalanche Cup Breuil-Cervinia", the famous "Battaile des Reines" ( battle of cows), as well as craft markets, entertainment for the little ones and music and cultural evenings.
