Protected by a circle of soaring alpine peaks, Champoussin is known for its exceptional vistas, the most famous of which is a dramatic, front and centre view of the Dents du Midi. Peaceful and down-to-earth, this is the perfect place to stop and smell the flowers and get to know the friendly marmots, goats and other furry locals.
Dotted here and there with wetland areas, Champoussin’s landscape of verdant pastures is gentler than in the neighbouring villages. The south-facing hillsides seem to catch and collect every last ray of sun, nature is understatedly opulent and life is entirely unrushed.
Hidden under a thick mantle of pristine snow in winter, the rolling topography and vast meadows provide the ideal terrain for beginner skiers.
