La dolce vita – discover the sweetness of live

Whether in Tuscany or at Lake Garda, the Ligurian Riviera or the Adriatic Sea, sunny Calabria or snowy South Tyrol: Italy has always been the epitome of wanderlust, travelling and relaxation. No matter where in Italy you are, it is always the open-hearted people with their original Italian love for life and the busy and colourful flair in the Italian villages and small cities that make this Mediterranean country that attractive and unique. Take a stroll along the small alleys to piazzas, refresh yourself in a typical Italian bar, discover ancient treasures from the renaissance or just bathe in the sun – you will soon understand the meaning of Italy and the “dolce vita” – the sweetness of latraveo offers you across Italy an exceptional choice of more than 44,500 holiday apartments and houses. From Tuscan country manors to cosy city apartments like in Venice or Florence ife.

Worth a culinary journey

Whilst enjoying a holiday home vacation you can also have a try at preparing typical Italian food. Eventually the uniqueness of the country is also down to its culinary specialities. With fresh produce bought at the local market even a simple pasta sauce with a glass of wine tastes that much better than at home. Alternatively you can pamper yourself in one of the many Italian restaurants.

Explore Italy’s cities from your holiday apartment

One outstanding highlight is of course Italy’s renowned cities. Rome, the Eternal City, leads the way with its ancient treasures and architectural master pieces such as the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon or St. Peter’s Basilica. Venice is world-famous and unique for its setting in the lagoon and its canals which stretch through the city. Florence, Verona and Siena impress with their cultural sights. And while Milan in the north made its name as the fashion capital Naples in the south attracts tourists with its spectacular location between the sea and Mount Vesuvius. Choose a holiday apartment in one of the Italian cities or at least plan one or two city day trips – you won’t regret it.

By plane, car or train to Italy

Depending on your travel destination and starting point there are several journey options available. The most flexibility is guaranteed by travelling with your own car. However one must consider that travelling to south Italy takes a long time. There are international airports all over Italy and flights to popular holiday destinations are provided all year round. Travelling by train is also a good option when visiting the country south of the Alps.

    “No shopping and parking fairly limited, but otherwise very good quiet location just 20 minutes from the historical center of Aosta. Shopping is best at shopping mall right next to the cable car station in Aosta PILA (20min drive).”

This is how holiday rental owners described Gignod

At about 8km from Aosta, following the Gran San Bernardo route 27, you will come to Gignod, the first town in the Montana Community of Grand Gombin, located in a magnificent, sunny spot on the right bank of the Buthier river, at an altitude of 988 metres.
The 55 hamlets ...

that make up the municipality are dotted around the foot of the Punta Chaligne.
Some of its more significant monuments include the stumpy square tower dating to around the XI century and the parish church of Sant‘Ilario, from the XV century with its solid bell tower and double lancet opening. Inside the church is a particularly significant baroque main altar; the interesting cycle of frescoes from the end of the XV century are also of some worth and possibly represent one of the most important expressions of Aosta painting at that time.
The “Fête du Teteun” is held on the second last Sunday in August in Gignod and is a gastronomic event where you can taste an unusual local dish: cattle udder cleverly prepared and served up in slices is a delicious cured meat that is not readily available for sale.
Gignod is the capital in Valle d‘Aosta of the “Pétanque” , a variation on the game of boules typically played in French countries.
In Arsanières you will find an excellent 9 hole golf course, on a natural slope where golf lovers can practice their sport in a particularly scenic spot.
Gignod is located on the road of the ancient Via Francigena, a route that was recently upgraded, dedicated to excursionists in search of old paths taken firstly by the Salassi, then the Romans followed by pilgrims in Medieval times heading to Rome.
In winter and springtime, those who enjoy Alpine skiing can go on excursions from Buthier (1370 m) to Punta Chaligne (2608 m), considered one of the classic destinations of this sport.
For mountain-bike lovers, as well as the various interstate roads, there is also a pleasant route running alongside the forests at the start of the hamlets.
The excursions to Punta Chaligne, Cresta Tardiva (2380 m) and the ascent up Mont Fallère (3061 m), are scenic and enjoyable, as are the numerous walks that can be taken along the network of marked paths.
