Cheneil, the beautiful hamlet: 17 km. from Cervinia. Drive to Valtournenche and then turn left following the signs Cheneil. When the road ends you park the car and walk 15 minutes to reach the small village: an oasis of peace in a beautiful valley. There is a small lodge and restaurant Hotel Bich where you may get a polenta valdostana (with the local cheese called fontina).
