How Does A 60$ Mountain Pasture House Look Like In The Italian Aosta Valley? ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น – E11

DOUES, ITALY: The Valle d’Aosta is a fantastic area in the north of Italy in the middle of the Alps. The valley borders directly on Switzerland and France and has the highest and most beautiful mountains in Europe, Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn. The valley is a wonderful destination for hikes to the peaks of the mountains or for exploring the numerous historical sites dating back to Roman times of over 2000 years ago.
This time we rented a house at 1750m altitude near the village Doues. With only approx. 60$ cost per night this was unbelievably cheap. The house has a unique view to the city of Aosta and is almost completely remote. At the same time, the house is equipped with everything one needs. Unfortunately there is no direct link but the house is the Chez Paolo in Doues (Aosta Valley).

DOUES, ITALY: From the terrace of our house in the Valle d’Aosta we could see two abandoned houses at an altitude of 1800 m, visited by nothing but cows. The buildings in the Italian Alps appear differently than, for example, in Switzerland. This is probably because they are quite old or old techniques are still used. Typically, loose stones are stacked on top of each other with cement. The ruins now called for a small inspection to perhaps see how people lived at this height and under these conditions decades and centuries ago.

On that day I had to do the whole day with the conference again and could only get out in the evening. I drove a little bit through the immediate surroundings, but there was nothing interesting to see. I just admired that there were houses without fences where people just throw a few sofas on the lawn and party there. I drove around a bit in the surrounding area and looked at something like a market in one of the villages of the area. All in all everything seemed quite deserted to me, because it was probably not the peak season. Later I drove back to the hotel and ended the day to leave the country the next day.
