Glorious scenery

Orgues et cimes

 

Located on the French-Swiss border, the picturesque and sunny village of Finhaut in the Swiss Valais, will welcome organists who can come with their family.

Midway between Chamonix and Martigny and close to the Mont Blanc, this village on the steep mountainside offers a variety of leisure and nature-related activities.

It is also a good base to discover the wealth of tourist attractions of the villages of the higher valley of the Trient, a mountanous, sunny area ideal for hiking and climbing.

The organisers can provide the names and addresses of mountain guides for those interested in climbing higher summits.
