Residence “LO Fleye”
The Meuble “Lo Fleye” is situated on the sunny hills of Saint Pierre, five minutes from the motor way exit for Aosta Ovest and ten minutes from Aosta, the most important town of the region that is full of interesting monuments and art.
The building, that is new, takes its name from a tool that the farmers of the Aosta valley used for the threshing of cereals. That choice was not by chance: the guests are put directly in contact with nature, history and culture of the Valle d’Aosta. The position dominates the heart of the valley and thanks to the large windows offers an incomparable view of mounts Emilus, Grivola, Ruitor and the relative glaciers, while the castles of Argent, Aymavilles, Sarriod de la Tour and Saint Pierre (home to the Natural History Museum) remind us of the extraordinary history of the region.
