Author\s note

Once up there, welcome to the chapel of Sainte-Anne (Mother of Mary), and there in the tranquillity of the place, bring your gaze to the stained glass windows made by the Orserain René Darbellay, showing the Blessed seduced, called, sent and offered to God.


From the church of Orsières, walk up the “rue de la commune”, the “rue de la Montoz” and the “chemin de la Creuse”. Leave the village by passing under the international road and then turn right to go up “La Creuse” to the farm. Turn left on the flat road to reach the hamlet of Maligue.

Join the main road then the hamlet of Chez-les-Addy and on the right the hamlet of Chez-les-Giroud.

At the exit of the hamlet, take the road on the left which goes back north and then the second road on the left which continues flat until you reach La Rosière.
