Alan Rogers Review

The Rhone valley in Valais provides a beautiful setting for this site. Family owned and run, it provides 140 level touring pitches all with 6A electricity. This is a useful base for resting and relaxing or, for the more energetic, walking, cycling, climbing or skiing. About mid-way between Sion and Brig, it would be a good stop for those travelling and sightseeing. Being close to a railway line, however, there is noise from passing trains and also from the road nearby. Sion has a dramatic backdrop, sheltered by the twin battlement hills of Valére and Tourbillon.

The capital of Valais has kept much of its attractive medieval architecture. Brig, on the other hand, is the junction of a large number of road and rail routes and perhaps most importantly the Swiss end of the Simplon Pass. Kasper Jodok von Stockalper (1609-1691) built the fine castle. He accrued his capital by dominating trade routes across the Simplon Pass. The locals subsequently dispatched him back to Italy.
