We stayed in Au Petit Chevrot end September, early October 2010. We booked for about 4 nights (because I was not sure how my life would like Valle D'Aosta.) We stayed nearly 2 weeks. We loved it. It was one of major highlights of our 7 week trip to Italy, Austria, Switzerland. The beauty of Valle D'Aosta was beyond my expectations. Each day we would typically take a side trip up a different hanging valley (eg One day to the Italian side of Matterhorn, One day to the Italian side of Mont Rosa, One day to Gran Paradiso National Park, one day up to Pila and then to Courmayeur to take the cable car up onto the shoulder of Mont Blanc. [Mt Blanc, Matterhorn & Mt Rosa are the 3 tallest mountains in Europe.] There was not on the high mountains a few times while we were there - very pretty. In early October, the goats, sheep and cows come down from the high pasture and parade through the town a few times - a great spectacle - and this is followed by gastronomic delights of tasting local cheeses etc from stalls in the main square of Aosta. Aosta is a really easy town to spend a few weeks in. Lots of Roman ruins, but not in your face like some places. Gressan was a very convenient place to stay. The supermarket was great - very convenient. Roberto had good English. His wife, our hostess, was very generous. Even though she spoke no English, she was extremely helpful with laundry or anything else we needed - very warm and welcoming. Our apartment was perfect for our purposes - good kitchen facilities which was great as we liked preparing our own evening meals using local produce. Highly recommended. Our visit was obviously low season for them, but perfect for us.
