(businesspress24) - Nestled at the base of Mont Blanc, you would be forgiven for dismissing Courmayeur as a destination for winter pursuits alone. However, this stylish Alpine town has far more to offer than snowy pistes over the winter season: in Courmayeur, attractions abound for the off-season visitor. Among those in the know, it has grown in popularity as a place for a delightful mountainside break during the summer months, when it enjoys crisp bright days and the perfect climate for outdoor pursuits.

One of the main reasons for Saussurea of the hike on your way back into town.

Timing is Everything

Unlike the lengthy snowy season, there is a slightly smaller window for planning a summer trip to Courmayeur if you want to catch the garden in full bloom. However, unlike the uncertainty of a winter holiday with the potential for inclement weather, things move at a far more predictable pace in the Alpine Garden. At the beginning of July, the plants begin flowering, by the end of the month they are in full bloom and three months later they are once again buried in four feet of snow. For this reason, the gardens themselves are only open between June and September, giving you ample time to accommodate a luxurious Alpine break and really make the most of all the Courmayeur attractions on offer.
