Orsières is the capital of the municipality bearing the same name. Aside from having an interesting centre architecturally speaking as well as a bell tower dating from the 13th century, the village is perfectly located at the entrance to the Grand-St-Bernar Valley and the Val Ferret, 15 minutes from the three ski areas of La Fouly, Champex-Lac and Vichères-Liddes as well as Le Châble, the gateway to Verbier/4 Vallées.
Orsières is also the ideal point of departure for becoming acquainted with a wide range winter activities offered by the Pays du St-Bernard
Orsières claims a multitude of attractions, not least of which is Samuel Destaing (Restaurant des Alpes), awarded a score of 15/20 in the Gault Millau and 1 star Michelin restaurant guides.
Excellent food is available not only in the superb local restaurants, but also from local, traditional producers who, with the knowledge of previous generations, have perpetuated the traditions of salting, cheesemaking (including the famous raclette AOC), producing red fruits, mountain honey, rye bread and wine. All these products can be combined in a gift or display basket; see La Corbeille d’Entremont.
