The paradise of flowers

Enthusiasts know this already: the best period for enjoying nature is when all the blossoms bring colour back to the place. And so a trip through Mont Avic Nature Park will offer you a spectacle to behold: having crossed the Mountain Pine forest at the highest altitudes, you will enter the Alpine meadows where the most beautiful and protected species grow: anemones, gentians, rhododendrons, edelweiss and water-crowfoot, not forgetting the beautiful St Bruno’s Lily, whose Italian name – Giglio di Monte – has been given to an Alpine garden in the Valle d’Aosta.
