Liddes-Vichères

Welcome in
Liddes-Vichères

Bordering Italy, Vichères-Liddes is located on the international Grand-St-Bernard artery, a well-known axis that for thousands of years has been used to cross the Alps from the north to the south of Europe and vice-versa. The region has seen many pilgrims on their way to Rome, as well as traders and soldiers such as Napoleon Bonaparte’s armies in 1800.

A look out facing the rising sun, opposite where Liddes is situated, Vichères is located at the entrance to the Combe de l’A nature reserve. At the beginning of the last century, this little village was relatively prosperous. The inhabitants lived from fields of barley and rye and the surrounding pastures and forests.

The raccards (barns) blackened by the sun have been transformed into comfortable chalets while conserving the typical look of these constructions from yesteryear.

Like many trans-border regions, Liddes has always been a transit hotspot. Located on a particularly sunny plateau, the village has managed to benefit from the development of the Grand-St-Bernard axis. Today it mainly survives on construction, agriculture and tourism.
