Valtournenche (local Valdôtain: Vótornéntse) is a town and comune(1500m above the sea level) in the Aosta Valley region of north-western Italy. It is named after and covers most of the Valtournenche, a valley on the left side of the Dora Baltea, from Châtillon to the Matterhorn. Valtournenche is close to Cervinia and in winter the two towns are connected also with the ski slopes. In fact, they are part of the same ski resort with also Zermatt, Switzerland.[3]
