An Ideal Situation

The central Valais enjoys a dry and very sunny microclimate. In winter, skiing enthusiasts will find an enormous number of slopes, while summer offers numerous hiking routes full of surprises for walkers of all abilities.

Besides of being the asparagus capital of the Valais, vines are cultivated here to make wines that regularly win prizes for excellence throughout Europe. The vineyards can be visited and wines tasted; all you have to do is stroll from wine cellar to wine cellar.

Saillon boasts the oldest mediaeval fortress in Switzerland, which is celebrated every four years with a splendid festival. This also perpetuates the memory of Farinet, its counterfeiter with the heart of gold.

From Saillon, you can explore the banks of the Rhône towards Sion or Martigny, enjoying long walks or bicycle rides through the countryside.

Summer

Hiking, cycling, mountain biking, tennis or golf (Sion, Sierre, Crans-Montana, Aigle) are just some of the activities you will find around Saillon, be it simply to stroll in the vineyards or to keep yourself physically fit!
