The region around the Great St. Bernhard
The Great St. Bernhard Pass has been connecting the north with the south of Europe for thousands of years. The region saw numerous pilgrims on their way to Rome, but also traders and soldiers, including Napoleon's army, who marched to Marengo around 1800. Liddes is situated on a magnificent vantage point, facing the rising sun, at the entrance of the nature reserve of Combe de l'A.
The Dranse (Dranze)
The 25 km long spring river Dranse d'Entremont has its origin in the area of the Great St. Bernhard Pass. It flows northwards and is collected in the Lac of the Toules for energy production. Then the Dranse d'Entremont crosses a height difference of 800 m in the valley of the Val d'Entremont, which lies west of the Grand Combin. In the Talkessel of Orsières, she takes the third head stream from the left, the "Dranse de Ferret", and then flows further northwards to Sembrancher.
Our spacious chalet "Relais de Dranse", renovated in 2014, is situated in Liddes, Saint Bernard, in a wonderfully quiet location on the Dranse, a headstream of the river Rhone, about 5 minutes below the pass road to the Aosta Valley in Italy. Sprawling countryside and no passing traffic make it absolutely perfect for relaxed language stay in the Valaisian Alps!
